The city was built by Zwoti Korkins who became majority population of the city. The city of Takurium also had Jamesians and Axerians living in it.

The Takurians were successful in pushing the Astarts out of Axeria after the battles of Xartabana in 8,760BX and Ssasik in 7,976BX.
The City of Takurium was captured by the Astart empire in 7,534BX. The Astart military upgraded their equipment deploying heavy infantry and cavalry that can match those of the Takurians and can deploy them in bigger numbers.

The city of Takurium was destroyed around 25XY when the Astart experiment to create super soldiers resulted in the super soldiers going haywire and then destroyed the city. Takurium was not reoccupied afterwards because the Astart empire had a weakening economy and can not afford to rebuild a city that was right next to the Jamesian Kingdom. The ruins where then inhabited by monsters and Balatian mercenaries that where hired by Bardaiya. This stopped the Jamesians from taking over until the defeat of the Balatians at the Battle of Takurium ruins 35XY during the events of Xerxesian Chronicles: The Sword of Ahura-Mazda. Takurium ruins were occupied and the city started to be rebuilt.
