Verden - The Witcher 2

Verden is one of the minor forces in the Northern Kingdoms, located at the very mouth of the river Yaruga, with Kerack and Brokilon on its northern borders, and Cintra in the south, just on the other side of the river.

Verden is ruled by king Ervyll at the beginning of the Witcher saga. He is later succeeded by his son Kistrin.

Heraldry Edit

COA Verden Hrb unof Verden Nlfgrd

The first coat of arms for Verden was described in the novels and was designed based on that description. The second COA, after the Nilfgaardian conquest, is not described in the novels. Both coats of arms were designed by our resident heraldry and Witcher expert Mboro.

Trivia Edit

  • "Verden" in Norwegian means "world".
  • In Lower Saxony there is a district of Verden.
  • The medieval King of the Franks Charlemagne infamously killed 4000 Saxons in what is now Verden
  • In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt there is chest armor called Verden archer's gambeson.
  • the non-canonical short story Something Ends, Something Begins mentions former king Herwig who abdicated twelve years ago in favour of his nephew Brennan, called the Good. It contradicts the canon books, where the country is ruled by kings Ervyll and Kistrin.
