Antharia was the world's premier sea power until the forces of Duncanthrax vanquished the Antharian Armada at the famous battle of Fort Griffspotter in 665 GUE.

The island became a part of Quendor and this victory gave Duncanthrax undisputed control of the Great Sea, and put the superb ship-building facilities of Antharia at his disposal. The conquest of Antharia also gave the kingdom access to Antharia's famed granola mines although no one in Quendor liked granola. From there, Quendorian explorers were enabled to discover, explore, and eventually conquer, the Eastlands.

John Paul Flathead set a new record for the most circumnavigations of antharia on a raft towed by groupers.

Leonardo Flathead worked on a large statue for the harbor of Antharia. During working on it in 789, he suffered a fatal plunge into a vat of molten granola because of the Curse.
