| This is Cintra. Is that right?
— page 269, Blood of Elves (UK edition)
Cintra was very powerful in the times of queen Calanthe, but was conquered by Nilfgaard during the First Nilfgaard War. After the Second Nilfgaard War, the kingdom is nominally an independent state, but is actually ruled by Emperor Emhyr var Emreis of Nilfgaard because of his marriage to Empress Cirilla.
Cintra's neighbours are Sodden, Brugge and the Nilfgaard province of Nazair. When Emhyr var Emreis proclaimed Cirilla queen, he also named her princess of Brugge, duchess of Sodden, heir of Skellige and sovereign of Attre and Abb Yarra.
The coat of arms of Cintra is described as three golden lions passants guardants on an azure field. From the reign of Coram II onward, the lions were crowned. The speculative provincial coat of arms is never actually described in the books. All three coats of arms were designed by our resident heraldry and Witcher expert Mboro.
