The history of the kingdom of Coryn and the Æðeleode peoples can be summarised into three major chapters. The first major chapter relates the progressive influx of the Æðeleode clans into the lands of Coryn that started in the year 296 AF, through to the formation of the Kingdom of Coryn in 1 AA.

This was followed by a period of consolidation, expansion, pacification and development, culumnating in the invasion of the southern kingdom of Provincáre and the formation of the Duchy of Bearne.

The most recent history relates to the Wars of Succession, and the accession to the throne of Coryn of the prince of Provincáre.

Chapter One - The migration of the Æðeleode clans into the lands of Coryn, and the formation of the Kingdom of Coryn.

Chapter Two - From the foundation of the Realm, to the conquest of the province of Bearne

Chapter Three - The Fall of Bearne and the Succession Wars
