Windenburg

Windenburg was the capital of the Great Empire at one time and probably has the most history of any of the other kingdoms.  With a long history, comes some darkness.  Their darkest hour is not long in the past.  After the fall, the Windenburgs were the rulers of the kingdom.  But one of the noble families and their allies wanted the throne.  A bloody civil war erupted.  With the help of some loyal nobles and others, the war was ended.  The Windenburgs, having fled, could return.  King Kellen is all that remains of his line.  But he hopes with his young Queen by his side, they can restore their kingdom and the Windenburg name.

Windenburg Family

Windenburg was one of the oldest cities of the Great Empire.  It holds many ancient ruins of by-gone eras.  Because of that, it’s history has always been a bit chaotic.  At one time, it was the capitol of the Empire.  When the capitol moved, it was left in the care of the Windenburgs.  It was one of the first to declare its independence from the Great Empire.  Recently, some of the noble families tried to enact a coup.  However, those loyal to the Windenburgs were able to smuggle the heir to the throne from Windenburg.  King Kellen was able to return to Windenburg and claim his throne.  A young noble woman who lost her family during the war and was fostered by the Windenburgs became his bride.

The Villareals are one of the most powerful noble families in Windenburg.  They claim to be loyal to the Windenburgs, but many believe that they were playing both sides, perhaps were part of the rebellion.  Their power makes it so they remain rumors, for the most part.
