Leonster (レンスター, Rensutā lit. Leinster in the Japanese version) is one of the four kingdoms of the Manster District, along with Manster, Alster, and Conote, as well as one of the five castles of the Manster District. It is also where the descendants of the Crusader Noba reside.

History

Originally part of the territory of Thracia, following its foundation by the Crusaders Dain and Noba, Leonster formally seceded from Thracia and became part of the independent Manster District, with Noba's son founding Leonster as the coalition's leader kingdom.

In the subsequent century of cold war between the Manster District and Thracia, Leonster's elite Lanceritter knight legion was the primary deterrent obstructing Thracia's wish to reclaim the lush northern lands of the peninsula; no matter what they tried, Thracia was incapable of advancing past them. The stalemate finally shifted in the Yied Massacre: While on an expedition in the Yied Desert, Leonster's Prince Quan, his wife Ethlyn and the Lanceritter were ambushed by a Thracian army spearheaded by its King Travant and were massacred, with the Gáe Bolg being stolen.

With Leonster's defenses weakened, Thracia launched an assault on the District with the support of Raydrik of Conote, causing the downfall of Leonster; the castle was set alight by Thracian forces, and the Leonster knight Finn was forced to flee with the infant prince Leif, his wife Lachesis and his daughter Nanna.

Thracia's hold on the District was short-lived, as soon afterward, the Kingdom of Grannvale (soon to be the Grannvale Empire) invades the Manster District, and forces the conquering Thracia into a peace treaty by turning into a servant state, which proceeds to annexing the Manster District, including Leonster Castle, and the country is renamed the Northern Kingdom of Thracia, with Duke Bloom of Freege installed as its King.

Fifteen years later, Leif led a liberation army through the Manster District, culminating with the reclamation of Leonster from the grip of the empire; however, his forces sustained heavy casualties from this endeavour and were trapped in a siege by the Friege army, who resists Leif's attempts to oust them, but were saved by the timely arrival of Seliph's army to provide support in freeing the Manster District.

After Seliph's army defeats the Grannvale Empire, Leonster is made the capital of the New Kingdom of Thracia, under the new King Leif's rule.
