The Kingdom of Valeria was a medieval kingdom in what makes up South Staynes that existed from the 7th through to 13th century. It was a dominion of elf and man, and which began as a union of Valerian city states and later a kingdom which was nearly as large as its modern counterpart. At the end of the 9th century Valeria took over many of the princedoms that made up South Ethalria in the subsequent Ethalried Empire collapse vacuum. The nation was later itself conquered by the Kingdom of Staynes in two successive waves; one in 1216 where Valeria lost its western capital Aegis and one in 1256 where Valeron was conquered. Valeria was formed into Staynish territory except for the southern coast broken countries that its successor kingdom has no interest in, this later formed into Valerica and Rosalica.
