Duchy of Cynara

Cynara was once a regional Thaindom of the Kingdom of Urland; today, it is a Duchy of the Kingdom of Iskandar, based on the Isle of the same name.

Today, the Duchy controls much of the island, and is ruled by the House of Pentathar.


Cynara rebelled against the Iskari monarchy during the Iskari Civil War that lasted from 1068 to 1087/4. The Cynaran rebels were led by Duke Teraxas Strongfist.

At the end of the uprising, Teraxas was executed by King Irenicus Blackburn and his lands were broken up into three smaller baronies: "Ainsworth," "Deroshar," & "Silverdeep."
