Castle-26.jpg

the royal citadel of the kingdom of Elyria, located a large hill overlooking both the Elyrian capitol of Rilsavar and the western banks of the Eldir Vaas. Castle Krasdan played an important role in the Vasneesh Civil War and was destroyed during that conflict. The castle was rebuilt in 32/6, when the royal family of Queen Elwyn Flanäe moved here from the Erindari capitol city of Chelstad. Within this castle is the famous Darkwood Throne, which the Queen chose as her new seat. This huge castle has been home to forty-five different monarchs from three royal dynasties. It served twenty-two different kings of the Flanäe Dynasty over the next 642 years. Then, in 674/6, the castle passed to the Crannock Dynasty who held it for the next 362 years, and fourteen different Crannock monarchs dwelt here. After the Tunston Uprising, the castle came into the possession of the Anselm Dynasty in 1036/6, and for the last 211 years, nine different Anselm kings and their families have ruled from here.
