King Narmacil Redmond

Narmacil Redmond was the doomed, final ruler of the Ancient Cynaran kingdom of Urland, and the last of his proud line.

For over three centuries, Narmacil and his ancestors had built Urland into a powerful and influential kingdom that controlled not only the Isle of Cynara, but much of what is today northern Cyrendar and most of the northern Highlands region of Corwyn. Narmacil's rule extended as far east as the Vryne River and the settlement of Halmaster.

Ironically, in 1137/3, Narmacil completed Castle Redmond; a great fortress built in the southern foothills of the Crystalpeak Mountains the very same year that Ilnavel Cyrenäe landed at Wyn Falas.

For the next forty years, he waged a desperate war against the Iskari invaders, until his death in 1171/3, during the Battle of Swanford. After that defeat, King Narmacil's surviving followers bent the knee, and became forever known as the "Kings Without a Crown."

Even today, the House Redmond is a powerful Cynaran noble family in the realm of Cyrendar, and Castle Redmond stands as a legacy to the power of the lost kingdom of Urland.
