The history of Oberon is, in many ways, the History of the Merebian Empire for although there are records of events going back nearly 45,000 years they are just fragments written by non-human civilisations. These older civilisations had inaccurate or inconsistent calendars and many records were based o earlier oral histories and so their veracity can not be guaranteed.
The Empire though keeps meticulous records and ensure that only the 'truth' is disseminated to its people. For those who are interested, pre-Imperial history can still be studied at any of the fine Imperially-resourced institutions at Academia.
Imperial history is also bound together with the history of the Emperors and understanding the Empire often requires an appreciation of the person who was Emperor (or Empress) at the time.
