'''Darn Rowan''' is a fortress in the duchy of [[Rowan]] in the hinterlands of [[Nilfgaardian Empire|Nilfgaard]]
. The keep was sometimes used to house political prisoners. When "[[ False Ciri| Cirilla of Cintra]] " came to Nilfgaard, she was given the title of Princess of Darn Rowan and sent there by [[Emhyr var Emreis]] 's order.
In ''[[Time of Contempt]]'', Imperator
[[Emhyr var Emreis]] endowed "[[False Ciri|Cirilla]]" with the title of "Duchess of Rowan and Ymlac" and lady of the castle of Darn Rowan.
The castle is
also the site of several scenes in ''[[Baptism of Fire]]'', ''[[The Swallow 's Tower]]'' and ''[[ Lady of the Lake (novel)|Lady of the Lake]]''.
