HISTORY


The modern day city of Kingsport was once the site of the ancient city of Tekrit, the founding city-state of the Tekritian League. For many years of the Second Age the city prospered, until it was conquered by the Pharaohs of Shorafa. In the late Third Age, the city gradually lost most of its Shorafi cultural heritage and became dominantly Thannish. The city of Tekrit later became home to Valden Durethë, and upon the formation of the new kingdom of Valdor, the city was renamed Kingsport and remained the capital of Valdor for a short time before the court moved to the larger city of Eldarand.
