The Elven Monarchy

The Elven Monarchy has been in place for as long as recorded history. Elves have been the royal rulers of Valwyr until just five years ago, when King Elzyr, a human, was crowned. Other races have ruled to lesser degrees — the gnome, Tellwyn Fiddlegums, for example, continues to be the ArchDuke of East Valwyr to this day — but none have been king or queen until very recently.

The first recorded monarch was Queen Llewellyss, who hired seven elven sages to travel to different parts of the country and begin recording the events happening there. These sages became known as the Mekhel Tiva, or “Story Bearers” in the old elf language, and their numbers swelled from seven to over two hundred by the end of Llewellyss’ reign. The Story Bearers have since recorded twenty-two elven Kings or Queens since that period.

With Elzyr was the first human king, the nobles of Valwyr begin to wonder if the Elven Monarchy has come to a close, and if a new age has begun.
