Template:Kingdom infobox

The kingdom of Lyria and Rivia is one of the Northern Kingdoms, located north of the river Yaruga, ruled by queen Meve. The kingdom's neighbors are Mahakam, Aedirn and Dol Angra.

Template:Spoiler One July, during the Second Nilfgaard War, Lyria and Rivia were invaded and conquered by Nilfgaard without any formal declaration of war. It was, however, liberated in the later phases of the war.

It should also be noted, though Geralt of Rivia originally used the title 'of Rivia' because it amused him, he was formally knighted by Meve and given the title 'of Rivia' after the Battle for the Bridge on the Yaruga.

Main article: Military of Lyria and Rivia

Lyria and Aedirn issued about thirteen thousand soldiers, including three thousand of cavalry. In the early days of the invasion, a fifth of these forces were cut off in forts and fortresses. Part of the remaining troop had been withdrawn to defend the wing against light cavalry and Scoia'tael. The remaining army, about six thousand soldiers and twelve-hundred knights, was beaten in Aldersberg. The current state of the armed forces of Lyria and Rivia may be determined at approx. eight thousand infantrymen who fought as a diversionary force during the last war with Nilfgaard. Rivia has the best crossbowmen in the north.


Not much is known about this realm, and thus we don't know much about the religions here. Likely cults of Melitele, saint Lebioda and churches of Kreve and Eternal Fire have their influence here.


As with religion, we don't know much about Lyrian and Rivian culture, but what can be said is that they are known racists as demonstrated during the pogrom in the town of Rivia at the end of the Second Nilfgaard War. Among those slain was the witcher Geralt of Rivia.
