Lordaeron was a human kingdom that lead the Alliance of Lordaeron during the Second War. 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, the official history books state that it is named after Lordain, one of Emperor Thoradin's Generals and "brothers".

"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

History 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.

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.
