Eastern VolanteEdit

In Eastern Volante, the collective area is known as the GVA; or the Greater Volante Area. Out of all the divisions in Volante, the East is largest, hence the title. This area of Volante was also historically called Val Haleth. Two of the Five Great Kingdoms exist in the Greater Area. These kingdoms and their surrounding neighbors are as follows:

ElytrisEdit

Elytris is a Kingdom in the Greater Volante Area. It is ruled by King Archyn Graydel and has been ruled by the Graydel Royal Family since 1548. It neighbors the kingdom of Elvinia.

KingsburyEdit

KIngsbury is a small duchy neighboring the more immense Elytris. It is the smallest nation that is completely within Alavolante borders. This duchy is ruled by Duchess Valeria L'Altair.
Though being a Royal Nation, Kingsbury does not have a place in the Royal Union of Volante. The reason it is not counted in the list of Kingdoms is because: 1) it is only a duchy and not a kingdom; 2) it was established almost two millennia after the other Kingdoms. Nevertheless, surrounding Kingdoms are expected to treat it Kingsbury as if it were a Kingdom, if only within Alavolante borders.
