Kingdom of Bėltse

The 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 certainty.
