Capital city

Vengerberg is the capital city of Aedirn and was one of the richest and most populous (numbering six thousands of inhabitants!) metropolies in the Northern Kingdoms. A long-distance trade center crossed by many routes and trails, it has a well-developed industry and education institutions. It is the home of famous sorceress Yennefer, Geralt's love.

According to some (not very reliable) sources, Vengerberg had been founded by prince Venger in 8th or 9th century. It became seat of power of Aedirnian monarchs, like famous Baldwin of Aedirn or currently ruling Demavend III.

During the invasion of Dol Angra, Vengerberg was ransacked, with the Nilfgaardians slaughtering almost all of its garrison and inhabitants. After peace settlement and the war's conclusion, the city slowly began to regain its former glory.

Landmarks[edit | edit source]

  • Castle
  • Vivaldi Bank (branch)
  • Yennefer's shop which sells magical beauty creams and oils
  • numerous dyeworks, manufactures of wool and textiles, malt mills and distilleries

In Wiedźmin: Gra Wyobraźni[edit | edit source]

There is a mention of founder of the city in the 3rd issue of Biały Wilk (The White Wolf) magazine.

In The Witcher computer game[edit | edit source]

Vengerberg is presented on world map as city built on elven ruins, but Andrzej Sapkowski never mentioned this in the novels. The city could also be built on dwarven foundation or simply by humans from scratch.

In The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings[edit | edit source]

The city is mentioned in Chapter II of the second game, and not only because of of Prince Stennis' intentions to be crowned king there.

Succession is the topic of choice in about every inn in the country. I don't know for sure, but I think the hangman of Vengerberg was the last to claim the throne.

In The Witcher: Adventure Game[edit | edit source]
