North Thorlacia was first colonized by the Thorlacians sometime during the last Ice Age by walking acrossed the Bering Land Bridge that would have been present at that time.

Precolonial History

Early Colonial History

In 986 CE, Erik the Red became the first European to discover the continent of North Thorlacia, in specific the island of Greenland. Erik the Red was son of Thovald Asvaldsson the discoverer Iceland, and Erik's son Lief Eriksson went on to discover the North Thorlacian mainland.

Over the next several years colonists from Denmark, Iceland, and Norway settled in Greenland and the three colonies set up on the mainland, Helluland, Markland, and Vinland. However after the initial few waves of colonists contact with Europe became sparse mostly consisting of ports for long range fishing ships, lumber shipping, and the occasional replacement of the colonial priests.

Mid-colonial History

While the colonies of Greenland, Helluland, Markland, and Vinland were nominally part of the Kingdom of Norway and later the Kingdom of Scandinavia the colonies there was no real government from those kingdoms until 1721 CE when the Kingdom of Scandinavia consolidated the colonies into New Norway.
