Detail of the The Witcher map

The kingdom of Lyria and Rivia is a northern realm, located north of the river Yaruga, ruled by Queen Meve. The kingdom's neighbors are Mahakam, Aedirn and Dol Angra.

Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.

One July, during the Second Nilfgaardian War, the Empire invaded and conquered Lyria and Rivia without any formal declaration of war. It was, however, liberated during later phases of the war.

It should also be noted, though the witcher Geralt originally used the title 'of Rivia' because it amused him, he was formally knighted by Meve and given the title 'of Rivia' after the Battle for the Bridge on the Yaruga.

National emblems[]

The most recent coat of arms of the Kingdom was composed of Rivian lozenges, Lyrian eagle and Cintran lions. Coat of arms of the earlier union consisted of Lyrian eagle to the right and a Rivian lozenge to the left.

Original arms: Per pale, dexter Or an eagle Sable; sinister Argent a lozenge Gules.

Recent arms: Quarterly, I and IV Azure three lions passant Or; II and III Argent three lozenges Gules; overall an inescutcheon Or an eagle Sable.
