The Province bears the name of the main river of the region, the Kadmar River. The name "Kadmar" is said to originate from the Northadi word "kuag mahrey" which means "waters of might". This river has given its name to the former ingerish Colony of Kadmar and is still an important communication route between Magenta and Desai.
The colonial time In 1764, an ingerish galleon approaches this part the Anteraphian coast that will become the Kadmar Colony and enters the estuary of the Kadmar River to establish a settlement on its shores. It's there where the city of Magenta will be founded and choosen as capital of the ingerish colony.
The birth of Leresso On May 19th of 1849 Ingerland grants independence to Kadmar that takes then the name of Leresso. The city of Aludres in the province of Palomar, more central and a little more appart from the colonial influence becomes the new capital of the Country. On that time, the Province of Magenta and the Province of Rhoddanton wich correspond to what is now West Kadmar remain under ingerish influence but Magenta looses importance year after year after the seat of the Government moves to Aludres.
West Kadmar Identity recognising In 1975 under the growing pressure of the ingerish majority in the two Western provinces community, the Government of Leresso grants semi-autonomy to this territory and creates the "Semi-Autonomous Province Of West Kadmar" with Magenta as provincial capital.
