The Age of Dynasty
The Fourth Age – the Age of Dynasty – is also known as the Halzhaan Age, named after the Halzhaan Dynasty, who ruled from the city of Kasa. It is seen as an Age of strength.
During this Age, the groundwork for the Councils and unions was laid out, and a more conscious historical documentation of events started to take form. Therefore, the rulers of the Halzhaan Dynasty are well-documented: First Monarch Issa Halzhaan, Monarch Ilmana Halzaan II, Monarch Sylla Halzhaan III, and Monarch Manas Halzhaan IV, also known as the Boat King.
Historical documentation is not a flawless way to ensure cultural memory, however. Much knowledge of the Halzhaan rulers was almost lost to the violence erupting around the end of the Fourth Age. Unions rose up against the Boat King in anger, wishing to tear down the Halzhaan family tomb for good and destroy the remains of his ancestors. According to legend, what stopped the violent mobs in the end was their unwillingness to hurt the unarmed elders protecting the tomb.
