About Queen Curogana
Queen Curogana
urogana (527 b.S.-457 b.S.) is remembered as the last Centoraurian Anactara and the first Tharanian Queen. She retired from the throne after her husbandís death in 459 b.S. paving the road for her son prince Tharagane. Curogana is remembered for her firm leadership in times of danger, for her class when in court and her courage when in battle. She is considered to be the last of the Menegulan rulers of the Centoraurians.

She sheltered Thar and encouraged him to be the great king he became. When Thar was facing the dilemma, whether he should remain a Centoraurian king or seize the throne of Erpheronia, Curogana encouraged him to seize the Erpheronian throne and provided him with all the resources of her nation. When Thar decided to go alone and claim the Erpheronian throne, Curogana had secret contacts with the Fratric Council and ensured that the Fratragetae were informed of Thar's plans. This way she ensured that Thar would not go alone in Erpheronia, where he probably would have been killed.

The Helcrani Anactar Artahir
The Helcrani Anactar Artahir
Accam falls in 666 and in the next year Voldar is besieged. Artahir of Milkengrad dreams of becoming king of Erpheronia, conquering Centorauria and thus being the only human sovereign. However, his dreams are futile. He makes a fatal mistake. In his hurry, he overlooks Westhron and as he is besieging Voldar he is encircled by Erpheronian forces. Artahir is killed in his attempt to break the Erpheronian lines.

Nevertheless, the Helcrani under Ogygor, Artahirís son, manage to retreat in the southwest. They are trapped in the coasts, a location where they can see the eastern shores of Efirhal. The Erpheronian Warlord, Ileor the Kind, feels mercy for the brave men who defied an empire and offers a peace treaty. According to this treaty the Helcrani would not attack Erpheronia for as long Ogygor lived and a regiment of them would be dispatched to Voldar where it would train Erpheronian cavalrymen and assist the king in his campaigns. Ogygor sees the kindness in Ileorís heart and foretells that the Helcrani will surrender their most precious gift to the next Erpheronian who'd have a heart like Ileorís. This Erpheronian will be Thar about a hundred years later, who isn't only given princess Curogana but also the Helcran independence.
