Abridged History of the 10th Age
The Cornung clan have been associated with Royalty ever since the Four Cornung Kings of the ancient Harnholme days. While not much history has been preserved of that ancestral land (much of it, sadly, being lost in the Cataclysm and more during the time of the Plague) the Cornungs have always had an esteemed name.
The Cornungs have been elected to serve in high positions throughout Arinnfal for centuries. The Cornung family of Bjalgrin currently RULES Arinnfal, as the last elected Dwarf King (known as Ríkonunghinn Tólr or simply the Ríkonung) who still sits in the High Throne is Valgar Hardrasson Bjalgrin Cornung.
