Kerack was one of the minor Northern Kingdoms, having formed sometime around the late 12th century,[1] but by the 16th the kingdom had dwindled due to a combination of its inept rulers and the ruling line dying out to the point its lands were eventually annexed by its neighbors.

It was located between Cidaris to the north, Verden to the south, and Brokilon to the east.


After monopolizing sea trade in the area, former pirate and bandit leader Osmyk, declared himself king of this land. While the people didn't complain, as Osmyk was so rich and powerful that it was seen as just formalizing the status quo, the neighboring kingdoms of Verden and Cidaris, whose land the newly declared kingdom was now encroaching on, did have an issue and several small wars and fights broke out between them before borders were established for Kerack.

After Osmyk's passing, one of his sons, Belohun, succeeded him and ruled for well over 20 years. However after a coup d'etat, Belohun's firstborn son Viraxas became king. During his reign he shared a hatred for the dryads of Brokilon with Verden's king, Ervyll.

In the middle of the city there is a statue of Osmyk identifying him as the city's "founder," even though it existed long before he was born.

In the times of Encyclopaedia Maxima Mundi this small realm was already divided and conquered by its neighbors. The capital became part of Cidaris.

During the invasion of the Northern Realms by the Nilfgaardian Empire, Kerack sent most of its garrison to fight them on the front lines. However, this left their defenses weakened and prone to raids by clans of Skellige.
