In the 12th century, the first Spanish settlers founded San Diego. They explored the rest of present-day California. They also started mating with the indigenous people of California, bringing the Spanish language and cultural practices. California grew through the bearskin trade. Certain Duchies and England traded handsomly, with both nations sending settlers. It was largely left alone during this period.
California grew and Britain wanted a monopoly. Britain and Spain went to war for 7 years until they were in a stalemate. They signed the Treaty of Los Angeles, allowing Spanish presence under British control. Eventually, gold was discovered in the Sierra Nevada sparking more British and Duchian settlers. Reitzmic labour built the infrastructure, many arriving believing the lie that they would benefit.
California wanted self-determination, having gotten large enough to govern themselves. They formally made a quasi independent state. They would have the British Crown as head of state but the prime minister and parliament would be Californian. All people and genders were given suffrage. This was agreed to by all counties by 1901. The indigenous people were named rightful owners of the land. During this century, Duxburians and Yosainese emigrated to Los Angeles.
