King Arathar Durethë IV

Last monarch of a united kingdom of Eldara, and fortieth of his line. Arathar was betrayed by his eldest son Castenar, who was then the ruler of East Eldara. After the destruction of the Eldaran city of Ordana in 1209/4, King Arathar sued for peace, granted his son independence, and ended the First Eldaran Civil War. After brooding the loss of part of his kingdom and his eldest son, the king fell into a deep depression that he never fully recovered from. In 1225/4, Arathar was poisoned in his sleep by agents of his son Castenar, who still feared his father's wrath. Arathar was succeeded on the Eldaran Throne by his youngest son Agathar III.
