This is Cintra. Is that right?

Yes. South of Transriver and Sodden. This way, here, flows the River Yaruga, flowing into the sea right at Cintra.

The Kingdom of Cintra is one of the Northern Kingdoms, located south of Sodden, Riverdell, and the great river Yaruga.

Cintra was a very powerful kingdom in the times of Queen Calanthe, but was conquered by Nilfgaard during the First Nilfgaard War. After the Second Nilfgaard War, the kingdom is nominally an independent state, but is actually ruled by Emperor Emhyr var Emreis of Nilfgaard because of his marriage to Empress Cirilla, also known as False Ciri.

Cintra's neighbors are Sodden, Brugge, and the Nilfgaard province of Nazair. When Emhyr var Emreis proclaimed False Ciri queen, he also named her princess of Brugge, duchess of Sodden, heir of Skellige, and sovereign of Attre and Abb Yarra.

The coat of arms of Cintra is described as three golden lions passant on an azure field. From the reign of Coram II onward, the lions were crowned. All but the last coat of arms were designed by our resident heraldry and Witcher expert Mboro. The drawing is the concept art from the Czech site.

  4. While Cintra is a monarchy and women can inherit the throne, any man the queen marries would be considered the main ruler of the country and not the queen. This also means that if there isn't currently a king, if a princess marries her husband would automatically become king of Cintra without having to wait for the previous generation to die.
