The Archduchy of Ban Ard is duchy and fief of Kaedwen. The Archdukes of Ban Ard have nearly always been members of the Kaedweni royal family. It is bounded by Lixela to the northwest, the Pontar to the south and the Blue Mountains to the east. During the time of the so-called Winter War, the Nilfgaardian army conquered the principality.
