HistoryThe village of Kokorogakure was established around the same time as the other shinobi nations. Before the beginning of the First Shinobi World War, the Land of Hearts was a land of pure chaos. The daimyo of the Land of Hearts was preoccupied commanding the nation's military against a oncoming. coup d'etat. The rebels were coming closer to taking over the Land of Hearts when a lone ninja arrived into the lands. Before this man came, the Land of Hearts had not had any experiences with shinobi. The man would later become the First Kokorokage of Kokorogakure which was established after the man single handely quelled the coup d'etat with his ninjutsu skills. The village of Kokorogakure was founded as a means to keep order within the Land of Hearts.
Not long after the foundation of the village, the once benevolent First Kokorokage had turned into a mad tyrant. The man ruled Kokorogakure with an iron fist and under his rule Kokorogakure became a dictatorship. Numerous amounts of revolutions were started up by the shinobi of Kokorogakure to overthrow their leader. It wasn't until the Kizoku, a wealthy ninja clan from another land arrived that a capable revolution was begun. With the help of the organized Kizoku Clan the shinobi of Kokorogakure drove the tyrant First Kokorokage out of the Land of Hearts.
After defeating the First Kokorokage the Kizoku Clan began to amend Kokorogakure. They organized the shinobi system of the village and ultimately restored it's order and structure. The Second Kokorokage was then put into power by the Kizoku Clan. The Second Kokorokage was later remarked to be a tremendous leader during his time.
