The Kelden Empire
The Kelden Empire, or the Empire, as it is more simply called, is a vast territory and last remnant of the great empire which once contained all the lands of Keldemar. More than a millenia ago, this ancient land split up into many smaller nations after a long civil war that ripped the known world apart. 500 years later, King Alexius, ruler of the ancient city of Keld, the last vestige and testiment to a lost empire, carved out a large swathe of territory for himself. Over the course of a decade, he improved his holdings tenfold, creating the Kelden Empire. He is known as Alexius I, the Founder, and his deeds are known far and wide as inspirational legends and tales.
Today, the Empire is in slight decline after bearing the brunt of the Black Horde’s onslaught. Though it has lost some ground due to that war, as well as war with Forlind, the Kelden Legions are still a force to be reckoned with. Empress Zyrena is young, true, but she is a great diplomat and is known for her fierce love of the Empire. Even now, it is thought that she bids to retake the lands lost in recent wars, and to bring about a new golden age for her people.
