Witcher Wiki

The legendary Dezmod (or Desmond[1]) was one of the first three human kings of Nordling culture who reigned on the Continent. He was the king of Temeria and an ancestor of King Geddes. Not much concrete information about him survives, but he does feature in a variety of jokes, proverbs, anecdotes and adages. He was also much revered by dwarves.

The other two known first kings were Sambuk (ruler of Novigrad, Pontar Delta and Arcsea, ancestor of Radovid the Great) and an unknown ancestor of Cerbin.

Indeed, as King Dezmod used to say when looking into his chamber pot after completing a motion, "The mind is unable to grasp it".
