Trensicourt is a well-known city-kingdom in Lyrian. It remained free, at least in name, while Maldor conquered the surrounding kingdoms. Secretly, however, he was pulling strings, and the regent and chancellor of the kingdom were essentially his puppets.
Galloran was the heir to Trensicourt, but after failing in his quest to destroy Maldor, he was effectively exiled to a ruined castle, where very few knew his true identity. Shortly before the overthrow of Maldor, he returned to claim his kingdom; while the people received their king with open arms, Chancellor Copernum plotted against him, only to be slain by Nedwin.
