Nemedia is a country of the Hyborian Age.
Geography[edit | edit source]
We have very little in this section just yet. You can help Conan Wiki by adding something. Nemedia is a country to the east of Aquilonia and west of Brythunia. Nemedia is a fertile land that has heavily-wooded mountains, known as the Border Range, and hills forming the western border with Aquilonia. Great grasslands lie to the east of these mountains, where few farms and villages exist in fear of any raiding Aquilonians. To the east, the Yellow River forms the border with Brythunia, which joins the Red River as a natural start to both rivers in the Karpash Mountains. In the north are the barren lands that meet the Border Kingdom. These lands contain the Varakiel Marshes in the northeast corner of the country. Copper, silver, and gold are all mined from the Karpash Mountains that run along the borders in the south meeting Ophir and Corinthia.
The Darkwood Forests comprise of mostly shadowed pines in the east of Nemedia. The faint trails hold much wildlife, especially wolves and bears. Rumors persist of satyrs, vampires, and ogres. The forest contains many brooding ruined stone castles.
Its capital is the city of Belverus.
History and politics[edit | edit source]
The origins of Nemedia are obscure. It is possibly a non-Hyborian kingdom.
For centuries, Nemedia had successfully resisted the advances of Aquilonia. It drew Brythunia and Zamora, and secretly Aquilonia's tributary, Koth, into an alliance aiming to crush the rising empire. The alliance was broken because of the Hyrkanian invasion. Nemedia took the defensive in future wars, aided occasionally by Brythunia and Hyperborea, and, secretly, as usual, by Koth.
During the fall of the Hyborian civilization by the westward Picts and the eastward Hyrkanians, Nemedia reeled between them. A tribe from Asgard came to the south, and contributed as mercenaries, halting and beating off the advance of the conquerors. The Nordics adopted the Nemedian civilization and customs and after generations it became a Nordic kingdom. The descendants of the mercenaries ruled a mixed, virile Nordic Nemedian kingdom modified by their original culture.
The Nordic-Nemedians were defeated by the Cimmerians who were driven by the Nordics during the glacier age. Some of their cities were sacked before the Cimmerians moved towards the borders of Brythunia. These were followed by the wild Nordics who fled the ice fields and the half-civilized Nordic Nemedians fled, leaving their ruined cities behind. We have very little in this section just yet.
