House of Redmond

The ancient Redmond family hailed from the Isle of Cynara and came from a long tradition of conquest. The Redmonds are most famous for founding the Cynaran kingdom of Urland.

After a long campaign, Endacil Redmond led his Cynaran warriors to conquer all other rival tribes and establish the first human kingdom on the island. It was called Urland, and Endacil claimed the ancient elvish fortress of Erôn-Khorlöth as his citadel. That fortress was considered the kingdom's greatest treasure.

The Redmond family ruled Urland for 325 years and a total of fourteen monarchs sat on the Redstone Chair placed in the great Hall of Erôn-Khorlöth. Eventually, the Cynaran realm of Urland controlled almost one-third of Westvale Island and much of present day Derianor. Unfortunately for the Redmonds, in the year 1137/3, Ilnavel Cyrenäe landed at Wyn Falas with his 40,000 colonists, and the fate of the Cynarans was sealed.

Narmacil; the last King of Urland, fought against the Iskari invaders in the disastrous Forty-Years War, and was slain in the battle of Swanford. With that defeat, the kingdom of Urland was absorbed into the fledgling Iskari kingdom of Cyrendar.
