King Grenn Gwyharë

Grenn Gwyharë was the only surviving nephew of the Mad-King Gayorg. In the year 1289/4, he founded the kingdom of Gwynne and became the first monarch of its Gwyharë Dynasty.

As a young knight, Grenn fought in the terrible War of Annexation, but was wounded in a skirmish in 1288/4. Because of his wounds, Lord Grenn was not present at the horrific battle of Keslyn, in which his uncle; Gayorg the Mad-King, was slain.

Soon after the battle ended, Ashara was sacked and the kingdom of Rhodara ceased to exist. The few remaining Rhodaran nobles soon chose Grenn as their ruler in forming a new country. Grenn was well-liked, and hailed from the ancient and distinguished House of Gwyharë; which traced its lineage all the way back to the Barony of Ghastonne.

Even after being crowned in 1298/4, Grenn remained bitter because, since his family did not receive his uncle's Melanthir sword.

Worse, the more prosperous eastern regions of Rhodara were taken as spoils of war, and the new Kingdom of Gwynne retained only the smaller eastern regions.

After the kingdom of Gwynne was founded, King Grenn re-built Castle Myrkur and assumed the newly-built Crimson Throne. He chose to build a new seat for himself rather than re-build the smashed Granite Throne of Rhodara.

Grenn's descendants formed the long Gwyharë Dynasty of Gwynne; which lasted for 633 years.
