Verden is one of the minor kingdoms in the North, located at the very mouth of the river Yaruga, with Kerack and Brokilon on its northern borders and Cintra in the south, just on the other side of the river.

Up until 1263 it was a vassal state of Cintra, but when Cintra was conquered by Nilfgaard it subsequently became part of the Empire. Later, it would gain its independence and became a small kingdom.
