Vengerberg is the capital city of Aedirn and was once one of the richest and most populous metropolises (numbering six thousand inhabitants) in the Northern Kingdoms. A long-distance trade center crossed by many routes and trails, it has a well-developed industry and education institutions.
According to some (not very reliable) sources, Vengerberg had been founded by Prince Venger in the 8th or 9th century, and became the seat of power of Aedirnian monarchs, like the famous Baldwin of Aedirn. During the Invasion of Dol Angra, Vengerberg had been ransacked and almost all of its inhabitants and garrison were slaughtered by Nilfgaardians and Scoia'tael. After the war, the city slowly began to regain its position.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- In The Witcher, the city is presented on the world map as a city built on elven ruins, but Andrzej Sapkowski never said this in his books. The city could also have been built on dwarven foundation or simply by humans from scratch.
- In The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, the city is mentioned during Chapter II.
- The demonym is "Vengerberger".
- In Time of Contempt Vengerberg is told to be inhabited by 6,000 citizens; however the reason behind this exiguous amount may be the evacuation and the army draft due to the war.
