Ferelden is a relatively young kingdom located in southeastern Thedas. Ferelden means “fertile valley” in the Alamarri tongue. It was formed by King Calenhad nearly four hundred years ago by uniting Alamarri clans.
The nation was conquered by Orlais nearly one hundred years ago, and was under Orlesian occupation for 58 years of its 400 years history. It was freed through the efforts of King Maric Theirin and Teyrn Loghain Mac Tir. Maric’s son, King Cailan Theirin, and Loghain’s daughter, Queen Anora Mac Tir are the current rulers.
The climate of Ferelden appears to be temperate, with the population experiencing multiple weather types in any given day.
