Vengerberg is the capital city of Aedirn and was once one of the richest and most populous metropolises (numbering six thousand inhabitants even after the evacuation)[N 1] in the Northern Kingdoms.

A long-distance trade center crossed by many routes and trails, it has a well-developed industry and education institutions.

History[]

Foundation[]

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.

First Pogrom[]

Sometime in the 13th century, a pogrom erupted in the city against nonhumans. Yennefer of Vengerberg was involved, and saved the lives of Molnar Giancardi and his family, for which they repaid her for many years with donations.[1]

Second Northern War[]

During the Invasion of Dol Angra in July 1267, 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.
