Founded in 879 by Landis Grayston and his wife Caris, Serenyon was initially set up as a gold mining village. The last of the gold was mined in 902 and the focus was turned to other avenues such as stonecutting.
Serenyon’s army is built around its strong archer army. At the age of 7, every able-bodied boy is ordered to train 4 hours a week until they reach the age of 19. Girls are ordered to train with a short bow from the age of 8 for 2 hours a week until the age of 14. This was ordered by King Ryder in 1283 after almost being destroyed by The Kingdom of Anour Hill, a war that lasted for 6 long years.
In 1291, the much loved, King Ryder was killed by assassins. Many believed they were sent by the King of Anour Hill. Furious at his father’s death, Crowned Prince Alador sent his own assassins to attempt the life of the King of Anour Hill, an attempt that horribly failed. The result of the failed assassination attempt ended with Serenyon once again fighting a war where they were hugely underprepared. The terms of surrender included the beheading of Prince Alador. The king of Anour Hill personally beheaded the prince in 1292.
After the end of the war in 1292, the forces of Anour Hill occupied Serenyon forcing the rest of the royal family to go into hiding. After three years of occupation and much mistreatment of the citizens of Serenyon, the people started to rebel. An unknown ally, who still to this day no one knows who it was, aided the people in a war to retake Serenyon. In the late months of 1295, the forces of Anour Hill fled the uprising forces and returned home. The beheaded prince’s only surviving child was placed upon the throne with his mother acting as the Queen Regent.
Furious after the return of his men in 1295, the king of Anour Hill declared all-out war against the Kingdom of Serenyon. After two years of planning and preparing for war, a vast portion of the forces of Anour Hill travelled by ships towards Serenyon. Their only orders were the total annihilation of Serenyon. During the invading soldiers’ travels, on June the 21st, they were met directly south of what is now known as The Temple of the Protector by an enormous entity. The people lucky enough to witness or survive the attack said it was larger than twenty Ship of the Line’s and had huge tornado like arms and cast lightning from its eyes. Each attack caused massive waves to wash over the Anour Hill ships killing almost everyone on board. Suffering such a defeat, the king of Anour Hill had no option but to accept a peace treaty. Every year since that day, the people of Serenyon has celebrated The Summer Festival on June the 21st.
In 1698, the king of Serenyon and the King of Karyce agreed to an arranged marriage between their eldest children and unite their kingdoms. A move that many nobles from both kingdoms agreed on was necessary after Crithales had married one of its princesses some years before to Stormhold. Most of the Karyce population believed Crithales was planning for war and this was their only option to try and prevent the war from being against them. Both Countries agreed that the firstborn child would become the leader of both countries and create a new superpower.
