Abdank was a not so mentally healthy king of Temeria who ruled after Dezmod and before Herman. His rule wasn't an easy period - during his "reign" the Six Years War broke out which resulted in the increasing importance of his court sorcerer advisor Raffard the White, who was secretly ruling the country.
Abdank, who ruled for some time after the killing of Raffard during the formation of the Brotherhood of Sorcerers, died without a male heir. This resulted in a long though intermittent war of succession between his relatives - dukes of Maribor and Ellander and other participants. These series of conflicts went down in history as the War of Daggers.
