Hengfors was, throughout its history, an independent city-state, the seat of power of margraves from House of Thyssen wielding the authority in East March and the historical capital of at least two kingdoms. Currently, it is the capital of Hengfors League.
Long ago Hengfors was one of the several petty states of the divided north. It was eventually annexed by Caingorn and, later, by Kovir and Poviss. House of Troyden established the city as capital of the East March, which was later given to Guido Thyssen by Gerard, last of the Troydenids.
In the 1220s, Audoen separated Hengfors from Kovir during the Secession of Poviss and formed there his miniature kingdom, which included Arcsea. After it collapsed, Hengfors was for some time independent from Caingorn but was eventually joined to it again after King Niedamir formed his League.
Notable people Edit

- In the first released version of The Witcher Role-Playing Game the League was called Hengefor's League, thus suggesting that the city could be named after an individual known as Hengefor. It was however stated as a misspelling and corrected in the updated version.
