Fhirdiad, the Kingdom Capital is the capital city of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus and the seat of its ruling family, House Blaiddyd.
Fhirdiad was founded in frigid northern Fódlan and ruled by the descendants of the hero Blaiddyd, one of the Ten Elites who fought in the War of Heroes. After Loog, the King of Lions, led a successful rebellion against the Adrestian Empire and secured independence for the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus in Imperial Year 751, Fhirdiad became the new nation's capital.
In modern times, Fhirdiad is home to a prestigious school of sorcery attended by nobles from across Fódlan. The study of magic is popular in the city, and the people have a reputation for being skilled at crafts. Due to the climate, the lands encircling the city are completely barren.
House Blaiddyd resides in Fhirdiad and claims all of the surrounding territory as its domain, and a number of northern fiefdoms as its vassals. With the demise of King Lambert and Queen Consort Patricia in the Tragedy of Duscur of 1176, Lambert's elder brother, Grand Duke Rufus of Itha, assumed regency over the Kingdom.
