Epernica was founded four hundred years ago by King Hemeroon the Second. He found the rich country land when he was out riding with his wife, Queen Epernica, and his two daughters, Princesses Litia and Lanyan. Hemeroon went out to explore the land with three of his nobles leaving seven armed men and two noblemen behind at the end of the massive forest that surrounds the valley. Hemeroon found that the valley was well fit for protection against enemies. The high mountain walls that surrounded it on two sides were covered in caves in which the women and children could take shelter from any attack.
The forest that grew on the other two sides was thick and hard to see threw though if the armies knew the forest well enough they could out manuver less experienced men. By the time King Hameroon returned to his family he found them dead, shot through with arrows. The King rode back to his homeland where he held a funeral service for his wife and children. Later Hameroon returned to the land and named it after his wife. Hameroon tried with all his power to eliminate the natives that had killed his family though a few managed to slip past his rage.
Hameroon set up a kingdom in the valley and brought many families to it. Epernica grew fast and soon people from other nations where traveling to Epernica for rumors of its success had reached far and wide. Sadly King Hameroon died ten years after Epernica was founded without any more children.
