Dynastic descriptions

From Witcher Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Some time after the Polish premiere of Baptism of Fire (1996), Andrzej Sapkowski, during an interview[1] by the community associated with his official website, offered to make available some of his "additional materials" for the Witcher series - including notes on family trees, which have become one of the most significant non-book canonical sources about the dynasties, history and heraldry of the Continent. Unfortunately, they disappeared after some server changes at the beginning of current millennium.

Descriptions were grouped into five sections: "The Lineage of Cirilla of Cintra", "Cintran Dynasty", "Temerian Dynasty", "Redanian Dynasty" and "House of Thyssen".

The Lineage of Cirilla of Cintra[edit | edit source]

Cregennan of Lod[edit | edit source]

Nothing is known about Cregennan's parents and childhood; it is on the conceivably that he got to Mirthe school of mages as a waif. Beyond all doubt, at least one of his parents was a sorcerer.
Cregennan graduated from the magic academy summa cum laude and shortly afterwards became famous as the unbelievably talented (for his age) mage. He pushed for coupling elven and human doctrines of the magic and was a great follower of the idea of proximity and coexistence of the both races. He was liked and accepted by elves.
The more and more ambitious and (suprisingly) more and more viable plans of Cregennan were interrupted by his love affair with Lara Dorren aep Shiadhal, elven sorceress from the group of so-called "Sages". This relationship, what is interesting, infuriated humans more than elves. Furthermore, when it turned out that Lara Dorren is expectant, Cregennan was accused of the treason, cahoots with elves and scheming a plot against his own race. When he refused to break up with her and the elves, the treacherous attack on both lovers was done. Cregennan died, Lara managed to escape.
The legend has it that "Cregennan's Grave" is located in the enormous glacial erratic near Rinde. In fact he had to be buried closer to the place where he had been murdered, i.e. in hamlet Foam by the river Pontar.
