Brugge was a small kingdom, now vassal state, on the Old Road. It is separated from its neighbors by the river Yaruga, its tributary Ribbon and the river Trava. Brugge is surrounded by Sodden to the east, Cintra to the south, Verden to the west, and Brokilon to the north.
Brugge was originally an independent kingdom before Cintra took over, making it a vassal state. After Queen Calanthe's death, Brugge became a vassal state to Temeria and was then ruled over by King Venzlav, who was a vassal to the Temerian king.
The war led to a large surplus of cheap Nilfgaardian wares travelling through Brugge into Temeria, where the competing cheap prices started to greatly damage the economy. King Foltest of Temeria knew he couldn't shut the borders between his kingdom and Brugge, as it would seriously anger the Merchant's Guild and affect trade relations between them.
