Durethë Dynasty

The Durethë Dynasty was the line of rulers descended from King Eldan Durethë; who founded of the Thannish kingdom of Eldara. Over a period of 1,233 years, a total of forty-three Durethë monarchs sat upon the Iron Throne at Castle Ironfist.

This family was the original holder of EQUALIZER; one of the seven Melanthir swords given to them as a gift by the Council of Sorcerë as a reward for King Eldan's bravery. King Eldan formed the kingdom of Eldara in 24/4. Over a period of 1,233 years, a total of forty-three monarchs sat upon the Iron Throne at Castle Ironfist. In 179/4, under King Aron, Eldara began to expand eastward across the sea, conquering and colonizing the Kratheri Peninsula. This new kingdom became known as East Eldara and was first ruled by Aron’s son, Prince Daghon. For many years the Dynasty ruled the two kingdoms jointly. The western Durethë Dynasty ended in 1257/4, during the Incursion Wars when King Hagar II was slain in a Vilzari ambush and his Melanthir sword captured. However, the eastern line of Durethë kings continued until 43/5, at the outbreak of the Unification Wars. The western Durethë Dynasty was succeeded by King Dareon Arellani.
