Journal entry[edit | edit source]
- Caingorn lies west of the Kestrel Mountains and has a silver griffon on a red field as its emblem. The kingdom has allied with Creyden and Malleore, forming the Hengfors League.
- The laws of Caingorn allow for female succession. The eldest children, be they men or women, inherit aristocratic titles and estates. Some nobly born younger sons fixate on the laws of neighboring lands and attempt to subvert this principle, but the law is the law and determines the factual state of things.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Caingorn is portrayed inaccurately in the world map for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - as a protectorate of Kaedwen and a separate kingdom from Malleore.
