King Garth was the first monarch of the Baldurin Dynasty of Gwynne.


In the year 625/5, Garth succeeded King Gorthon IV, after he was slain at the Battle of Harkalad and his line ended.

Establishment of the Freehold of Trevalia


In the wake of the Cataclysm, Garth Baldurin needed new sources of wealth for his new kingdom, so he turned to Devan Trevalio; patriarch of an old Gwynnish noble family, and a descendant of the original founder of the long-lost "Barony of Bloodstone."

King Garth granted Devan leave to re-establish a trading colony in the Bloodstone Valley, which had lain vacant for centuries after the fall of Kronar. It was the King's hope that this colony would produce wealth for Gwynne from both its strategic location and the mining of the famed Bloodstones found in scattered, deposits in the valley.

The colony was indeed successful, and in the Year 0027 of the Sixth Age, King Garth granted Devan the title of "Viscount" and the Freehold of Trevalia was officially established. All subsequent rulers of the Freehold have held this title ever since.
