History

The islands of Yoshiuria were first inhabited by Japanese settlers fleeing from Mongol invasions. they established a small fishing colony near the present city of Yoshiuria. But it was during the sixteenth century the colony began to grow with the successive invasions for colonization of Portuguese and English. several wars occurred between Portuguese, English and native which formed three nations in middle 17th century: Vasco da Gama's Lands, ruled by Portugal (current Country of Vasco); Commonwealth of New Australia, ruled by the British Empire; and Yoshiuria, the smallest one, but the only independent.

In 1707 the Yoshiurian began attacking Portuguese and English cities to expand their boundaries. Until 1800, they won two thirds of the lands.

In 1808 things changed. with the threats of Napoleon, the Portuguese royalty wanted to escape for some of their colonies. as in Brazil and Africa there were many civil wars and the islands of ioshiura had the presence of British allies, the only way was to create a peace treaty with the Japanese natives. The Treaty of Monkville. (at this time, a Portuguese city under control of Yoshiuria)

the treaty has established the United Kingdom of Vasco & Yoshiuria with the capital city in Saint Antonio of Angels Fort. But the union between two people was not accepted by the population and there were many Portuguese Yoshurian guerrillas that massacred each other until 1849, when the Emperor Dom Pedro II had a daughter with a Japanese descendant, Princess Mary, and when her father died, the mixed queen moved the capital to Yoshiuria City restored the peace between two peoples. The Queen also fight for the idependence, and won in late 1877. (when New Australia became independent in 1897 immediately became part of the united kingdom)
