King Garth Baldurin

King Garth Baldurin was the first ruler of Gwynne from the Baldurin Dynasty.

Garth succeeded King Galen Gwynnett in the year 625/5, after his death during the Battle of Harkalad.

Establishment of the Freehold of Trevalia

In the wake of the Cataclysm, Garth 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."

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.
