History

The Lykenem Empire was only the most recent empire; there have been at least three continent unifying governments before it, though their names (as well as common information about them) have been forgotten. (Or purposefully removed and/or destroyed by the groups that succeeded them- it is hard to know, at this remove.) The common person only knows recent history of their city-state and environs; even the standard scholar is only knowledgeable about history since the fall, or general information about Lykenem. (General information, because most of the information about the Empire comes from their handiwork or from third party accounts. Whatever medium the Lykenem used to chronicle their history, none of is is known to survive it’s fall.)

Information about the civilizations before Lykenem is primarily conjecture and mythology, as the youngest of these is thought to have ended at least fifteen hundred years ago, and Lykenem was not a society that preserved that which came before it. (Although it did not particularly destroy said cultural information either. It is possible that there are wealthy learned people who are knowledgeable about such things.)
