Abridged History of the 10th Age
Located north of Rootwood Forest and Byrne, Golnia is a kingdom thrust up against the dark wilderness of the North and the seaside lands of the Sturmsea. It was settled in the Sixth Age by Midland explorers who built towns and villages amongst the Giants and Ogres of the hills.
Golnia is ruled by four great magnates, the Tetrachs, each of whom controls a single homogenuos territory within the boundaries of the kingdom (or the Tetrachy, as it is known). These magnates are called the Gercog, which means Great Dukes in Golnian.
