Kingdom of Bėltse is one of the seven successor states of the
Republic of Bowdani. Mentioned in Bowdani history as the people of
the Bullocks, defeated by the Kencari in 643 BP after the last
leader of the Bullocks Hahnts V betrayed his people, the Bėltse
remained under Kencari and Ingallish rule for almost one thousand
years. The current king Krethn III of the Terirn-Ėkmol dynasty
claims to be a direct descendant of the last ruling family of the
Bullocks, but since the Bullocks were illiterate and Kencari records
from that era aren't quite reliable, nothing can be said with
