According to some (not very reliable) sources, Vengerberg had been founded by prince Venger in 8th or 9th century, it became seat of power of Aedirnian monarchs, like famous Baldwin of Aedirn or currently ruling Demavend III. During Invasion of Dol Angra Vengerberg had been ransacked and almost all of inhabitants and garrison were slaughtered by Nilfgaardians. After the war, city slowly began to regain its position.
Known Vengerbergers Edit
- Vivaldi Bank (branch)

Vengerberg is presented on world map as city built on elven ruins, but Andrzej Sapkowski never such thing in his books. City could also be built on dwarven foundation or simply by humans from scratch.
The city is mentioned during Chapter II of the second installment of trilogy, and not only because of of Prince Stennis' intentions to be crowned king there.
- Succession is the topic of choice in about every inn in the country. I don't know for sure, but I think the hangman of Vengerberg was the last to claim the throne.
