The History of Amalthea covers the settlement and politics of humans in the Amalthean continent since pre-historic times. The first Homo universalis to arrive on the continent crossed the Amalthean Strait from Himalia around 51,000 to 38,000 years ago, possibly originating from a colony of now mostly hairless Homo felis universalis. They spread southward from modern day Anerikaip (Anerum) into Darvincia and Solea. From Solea, they island hopped from the Aolejk Peninsula to Aeridani and Aiyota.
The first settlement attempts by humans probably occurred around 47,000 years ago near Wyverncliff, but this interfered with the inhabitants already located there, bovines and Saguans. They migrated west and eventually managed to flourish.
