HISTORY


Ages ago, the ancient city of Eldarand was called "Azimar;" and served as the capitol of the Principality of Azimar. The Principality was later conquered during one of the Ten Campaigns of Valden the Conqueror, and the city was absorbed into the newly formed kingdom of Valdor.

Because of its strategic location, Valden's son Eldan later chose the city as his new capital and it was renamed Eldarand. Legend has it; King Eldan also wanted to distance himself from his father's legacy and its foundations in the historic city of Kingsport.
