Lordaeron was the northern most human Kingdom on the subcontinent of Lordaeron. Under the leadership of Terenas Menethil II, Lordaeron was responsible for leading the Alliance of Lordaeron against the Orcish Horde during the Second War. The Kingdom, along with most of the north lands of the Lordaeron subcontinent, fell due to the Plague of Undeath.

History Edit

Although some claim its name is supposedly derived from a combination of words stemming from the human, dwarvish, and elvish languages: "lorn" (in Dwarven) meaning "land", "daer" (in Common) meaning "people", and "ronae" (in Thalassian) meaning peaceful, official historical texts state that it is named after Lordain, one of Emperor Thoradin's Generals and "brothers".

Founding Edit

Duchy of Lordaeron Edit

Kingdom of Lordaeron Edit

Orcish Invasion of Azeroth Edit

During the Second War, Lordaeron provided refuge to Lord Anduin Lothar and the people of Stormwind under his charge following that kingdom's destruction at the end of the First War. During the Second War, Lordaeron spearheaded the Alliance's campaign against the Orcish Horde of Orgrim Doomhammer. Lordaeron was almost entirely destroyed as a result of Prince Arthas Menethil's betrayal and subsequent invasion by the Undead Scourge during the Third War.

Plague of Undeath Edit

Current Status Edit

"Here lies King Terenas Menethil II -- Last True King of Lordaeron.

Great were his deeds -- long was his reign -- unthinkable was his death.

May the Father lie blameless for the deeds of the son.

May the bloodied crown stay lost and forgotten."

- Inscription upon King Terenas' Grave

Today the former kingdom's territory lays, for the most part, in complete ruins. Despite this, the land is hotly contested between a variety of competing forces, including:

Although the League of Lordaeron and Kingdom of Lordaeron Restored both possess different notions of how Lordaeron should be redeemed, they both stand together in some form of unity under the banner of the Alliance, as opposed to the Crusade, Forsaken, and Scourge, which all make up competing and seperate interests.

Over the course of the years other organizations sporadically appeared and started laying claim to land that was previously part of the Kingdom of Lordaeron.

These new forces consist of:

These new orders all have some tie back to the Scarlet Crusade.
