Creyden is a small northern principality, vassal to Kovir and Poviss and member of the Hengfors League.

History Edit

Kovir's fiefdom Edit

Creyden was one of several minor countries in the north which were conquered by Earldom of Kovir prior to the 12th century. It was likely part of the East March.[1]

Black Sun Edit

In the first decades of the 13th century the principality was ruled by Prince Fredefalk and his second wife Aridea. Aridea possessed Mirror of Nehaleni, artifact tied to the goddess divinations and sooth which she used to determine the fate of the realm. It informed her that she and a great number of other people would die a horrible death at the hands of Fredefalk's beloved firstborn daughter, Renfri, born under the curse of the Black Sun. Stregobor, a mage she consulted, confirmed her suspicions. Then the duchess hired a thug to kill her stepdaughter in the forest, but Renfri managed to escape. Over the course of next four years, Aridea sent numerous assassins after the princess but none of them returned. Some time later she was found dead in the bed, reportedly poisoned by Fredefalk after he found a younger mistress.[2]

Vermuellens Edit

At some point of the 1250s, King Niedamir conquered Creyden. This deed disturbed newly crowned Esterad Thyssen of Kovir and Poviss because Creyden had been Koviri vassal for ages. After a short war the Fourth Treaty of Lan Exeter was signed, and while Creyden remained in Hengfors League, it was granted to Esterad's young daughter Gaudemunda and was governed by Esterad himself until she reached maturity.[3] Gaudemunda later married Prince Aristide Vermuellen. Vermuellens were still in power in the 1352 when Gaudemunda's and Aristide's son Guiscard was 95 years old.[1]

Economy Edit

Bordering the sea,[4] Creyden imports oversea goods such as batiste.[5]
