Abrad Old Oak was a descendant of Sambuk and an ancestor of Radovid I the Great. One of the first rulers of Redania. His coat of arms was the first emblem of the kingdom of Redania and has remained until today.
Search back through your memories to the past, to the days of Dezmod, Radovid and Sambuk, to the days of Abrad, the Old Oak!
