Detail of the The Witcher map
One of the major Northern Kingdoms, Redania is a wealthy realm that profits greatly from agriculture and trade. Its capital city is Tretogor. Oxenfurt, with the largest university in the North, and the free city of Novigrad are also located in Redania. The kingdom's neighbours are Kovir, Caingorn, Kaedwen, Aedirn and Temeria.
With its government heavily influenced by sorceresses, it also possesses the strongest intelligence network in the world. For ages, Redania has fought a customs war with Temeria, its southern neighbour and primary rival in the North.
King Vizimir II was assassinated during the second Nilfgaardian War. During the interregnum, the country was ruled by a Regency Council headed by Sigismund Dijkstra, the head of Redanian Intelligence.
