Queen Elwyn Flanäe

(Born Lady Elwyn of House Elyrion) Last Flanäe ruler of Erindar and the founder and first ruler of Elyria. Queen Elwyn assumed the Ivory Throne of Erindar in 625/5, and ruled Erindar for twenty-seven years.

Lady Elwyn was born to the powerful Elyrion family of the city of Rilsavar. When she was seventeen, she was married to King Erin Flanäe IV; the twenty-third monarch of Erindar. King Elcar was king and strong, and a great warriror. Unfortunately, he marched off to war in service of Empress Ravinia and was slain in the Battle of Harkalad in 625/5, leaving the young Queen a widow with a young son named Prince Escador.

She was the twenty-fourth and last Flanäe ruler of Erindar, but in 32/6, was forced to abdicate following an uprising led by Duke Eldred Fentharë. This brutal conflict was called the War of Succession. After her abdication, Elwyn made the city of Rilsavar her new capitol and formed the kingdom of Elyria in the year 32/6. That same year, she assumed the Darkwood Throne. Eldred then became the new king of Erindar, and his family continued to rule that country until the Halberon Uprising.

When Queen Elwyn died in the year 39/6, her son Escador became the new king of Elyria.
