The Old Dynasties of the Age of Settlement
During the Age of Settlement, many small kingdoms formed in Braided Shore. Most of them were ruled by a single person and those individuals became the founders of the Old Dynasties. There were many important and interesting Old Dynasties, but one was impactful beyond the rest, and is the one often called the Old Dynasty.
The founders of the Old Dynasty are unknown, but the earliest known members of it are King Mathidas and his wife Thela Thenn, who ruled from Kasa. It is believed that the Dynasty lasted three or four generations after Mathidas. When Issa Halzhaan founded an entirely new ruling dynasty in Kasa, the Third Age ended and with it most of the Old Dynasties.
