Notable Places



Terrasen is the country that is located in the northernmost part of Erilea. It is by far the biggest country in Adarlan's empire and was the first to be conquered by the King of Adarlan.


Orynth is the capital city of Terrasen, and the birthplace of Celaena Sardothien, the main character in Throne of Glass. Other cities in Terrasen include Ilium where Brannon first set foot in Terrasen, Perranth the second largest city of the kingdom, Eldrys, Suria, Rosamel and Allsbrook. All the cities are surrounded by two mountain ranges, the Staghorns and the Anascauls. The Oakwald Forest separates Rosamel and Allsbrook and from Perranth and the Perranth Mountains. East of Terrasen is the North Sea which leads into the Great Sea.

Terrasen is mainly made up of old woods, such as Oakwald Forest, and has mountains in the very north of the kingdom. Despite the ravages of the conquest, the of Oakwald Forest remained untouched echoing with the remnants of the power that had once given these trees such unnatural beauty. The south is made up of green flatlands that eventually yield to rocky, arid coastline where the broad mouth of the Florine River snaking inland, all the way to Orynth.


Since Brannon Galathynius Terrasen has been ruled by the Galathynius monarchs and is home to the noble families; Allsbrook, Darrow, Gunnar, Ironwood, Lochan, Sloane and Suria. The House of Galathynius is one of the oldest houses in Erilea, dating back to Brannon Galathynius of the Wildfire a powerful bastard born Fae, who stole the sacred sun stags from the Fae Queen and crossed the ocean to make a home for himself. His wife was Mala Fire Bringer who took a mortal body to be with him and bore him a daughter Elena who became the first queen of Adarlan.

Its rightful Queen is Aelin Ashryver Galathynius called Aelin Fireheart, the last living Galathynius. She is the only daughter of Prince Rhoe Galathynius - the nephew to King Orlon - and Evalin Ashryver, a princess of Wendlyn. On her mother’s side, she is a descendant of the Fae Mab, who in death was immortalized as the goddess Deanna while on her father’s side she is a descendant of King Brannon and Mala Fire Bringer.

When Brannon set foot on the continent, kingsbloom the small red-and-orange flower, so vibrant that it took your breath away bloomed in fields and across mountains throughout the kingdom. For centuries afterward, if a solitary blossom was ever found, the current sovereign was deemed blessed, the kingdom truly at peace. It bloomed once during Orlon's reign, a single flower a found in Oakwald, the King had it pressed in glass and kept it on his desk.

Conquest of Terrasen

Following the King of Adarlan's banning of magic within Adarlan ten years prior to Throne of Glass, he began his conquest of Terrasen by assassinating members of Terrasen's Royal Family, including King Orlon Galathynius and the family of his heir, Prince Rhoe Galathynius. With the Royal Family either dead or missing, Adarlan declared their dominion of Terrasen and invaded with his armies, he continued its purge of magic by burning ancient books of vast knowledge, sacred sites, and even magic practitioners themselves. The armies of Orynth destroyed its famous library and attacked the magic school, slaughtering its students. On Theralis the great plain before Orynth there was a final, doomed battle as the empire had swept down upon the last remaining armies of Terrasen. Most of Terrasen’s forces and commanders had not walked away from the bloodbath, so thorough streams ran red for days afterward.


  • Terrasen's population consisted largely of magic wielders
  • In Queen of Glass, Terrasen is named Trasien
