Little is known about the Stone Age inhabitants of the region, sometimes referred to as Pelits. However, a number of settlement strings and artefacts have been discovered throughout the north-west, most famously at Grijndervet, which is about 40 km north of modern-day Treien. During the Neolithic period, the climate was much warmer, and many plants were cultivated that would not be able to grow today.
Treien was wiped out during World War II and rebuilt from 1945 to 2009, because of the Allied attacks and the Treien Blitz.
The origin of the name 'Treien' is unknown. The city was founded in 897 AD and suffered successive destruction and rebuilding until the present day. The city was renamed, New Edinburgh, when the British took over the city in 1576. The current city of Treien is the fifth in line and dates from 1945 when the whole entire city was wiped out by the Germans.
In 2016, the city hosted the CWCR Expo.
Treien is a coastal city with the North Sea to the west with the River Oereomond flowing through the city. Treien is situated above the Ostrobian Plains and is completely surrounded by flat land.

The CBD of Treien is Hudston Bay, formerly a densely populated area of Treien. In 1971, plans were put in place to demolish the area and build a new CBD for the growing city and the growing economy. Most residents of Hudston Bay was forced to move out to the suburbs or outside of Treien. New government scheme housing projects outside of Treien such as Southwoods City are being built. The National Territory State Government is currently disputing the Federal Housing Authority's decision to build thousands of new housing across its borders, which the National Territory had stated that the Federal Housing Authority "had no consent or any reason to do so".
Treien does not have a harbour or a port, however Neutral Bay used to be a shipping lane for Treien but Treien's shipping business had declined, so the decision to demolish and rebuild Neutral Bay had been made.
