Due to the strong local position of the House's branches, Talgar became a shelter to young than-prince Esterad Thyssen and a large number of exiles still loyal to him after the events of Secession of Poviss and the following events which led to the collapse of the Kovir and Poviss. The country was ruled then by Lady Bernika who took the power after escape from a mage tower in which she was imprisoned due to the suspicions of being afflicted with The Curse of the Black Sun. Her reign was rather strict - rumour has it that the most seen part of the Talgarian landscape were the gallows. Zuleyka, young lady whom Esterad married in the exile, could be presumably Bernika's relative.
This particular coat of arms was designed by our resident heraldry and Witcher expert Mboro.
- In The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings there is a monster trap called Talgar winter.
- It is jokingly said that the winter there lasts from September to May, the other seasons include spring and fall, and that summer begins on the first Tuesday after the August new moon ending the following Wednesday morning.
