The Kingdom of the Isles

The Kingdom of the Isles (or simply "The Kingdom") is the human nation which rules most of the northern continent. The nation began on the island of Rillanon and expanded on the mainland until most of the continent was under their rulership. The capital is in the city of Rillanon, on the island of the same name, but the western half is ruled from the city of Krondor. Often times, the king will rule in Rillanon and send a trusted family member to be Duke of Krondor and the effective ruler of the western half.
The Kingdom and the Empire have fought many border wars. The Empire's army is far larger than the Kingdom's, but most of it is tied up garrisoning and controlling rebellious areas. If Kesh could ever stamp out internal dissent and muster its forces in one place, they would roll over the Kingdom.
