|“||The people of Conote saw the biggest army they had ever seen off with wild enthusiasm, as it passed by. “There’s no way they’ll lose to Thracia,” everyone said.||”|
— Narration in Fall of Leonster
Along with the other three kingdoms of the Manster District - Leonster, Alster and Manster - Conote was originally part of the territory of Thracia, following its foundation by the Crusaders Dain and Njörun in Grann 648. Following the Tragedy of the Gáe Bolg, the Thracian throne was succeeded by Dain's son, a cruel and ill-tempered man who terrorized and suppressed the nation's people. In response, Njörun's son led a coalition of Thracian dukes in revolt against Dain's son, claiming the northern half of the peninsula as their own individual nations; with Grannvale's mediatory intervention and the eventual assent of Dain's son, the territory formally seceded from Thracia and became the independent Manster District, with Conote being one of the four kingdoms founded there.
Some time before the year Grann 760, the Conote throne was assumed by the young and inexperienced King Carl, who overcame a power struggle against his uncle to claim rule of Conote with the assistance of his advisor Raydrik. All four parts of the Manster District kept a close military alliance with each other, so when Thracia launched a siege of Manster following Quan's death in the Yied Massacre, Conote contributed its military to the effort to come to its aid, but a faction led by Raydrik betrayed both Conote and the rest of the District at the Battle of River Thracia, leading to Raydrik himself killing Leonster's King Calf and leading Conote soldiers loyal to him to assist Thracia in claiming the entire District. It wasn't long until the Grannvale Empire's army defeated Thracia and claimed the Manster District - and thus Conote - as its territory, falling under the rule of King Bloom.
In the aftermath of the Battle of Belhalla, Briggid of Jungby left her children, Faval and Patty, in an orphanage in Conote before disappearing. In Grann 777, following his defeat at Alster, Bloom retreated to Conote and used it as his capital in his last stand against Seliph's army. After his second defeat, Seliph took control of Conote, the third territory of the Manster District to return to his control. Conote was later united with both Thracia and the rest of the Manster District into the New Kingdom of Thracia, under King Leif.

- "Afterwards, the one who would succeed the Thracian throne was Dain's son, but he wasn't the type of person who would make a good king. After ascending the throne, he implemented a terror policy, operated by his trusted subordinates, to suppress the masses. This resulted in Njörun's son leading the marquesses to rebel, and in the end they successfully subdued the northern, fertile lands. Later, by Grannvale's mediation, the small countries to the north pushed Leonster to become the leader of the alliance, and with Thracia's permission they officially obtained independence." - Designers' notes from a Genealogy of the Holy War playing guide, as translated by Serenes Forest
- "After my father died, I’ve been target of countless assassination attempts from a faction that would rather see my uncle as the king. However, God sided with the legitimate successor. Starting with Leidrick, the amount of people supporting me increased, and finally I was able to be recognized as king." - Carl, Fall of Leonster
