The nation of Jaramide was located in what is now known as Saldaea and Arad Doman. To the southeast lay Aramaelle and to the south Aridhol and Safer. To the north was the Blight. Because at this time the Blight had not extended past the Mountains of Dhoom, Jaramide was one of the two nations that had a border actually reaching them.

Cities, Towns, and Villages

The capital city of Jaramide was Deranbar, where Maradon is now located. Other cities included Allorallen (now Bandar Eban), Barsine, Canaire'somelle, and Nashebar. There was a Waygate in Deranbar (LoC, Ch. 20).

Formation, Government, and Nobility

Like the other nations in its time, Jaramide was formed sometime after the Breaking of the World.

The ruler of Jaramide who signed the Compact of Ten Nations was High Queen Egoridin.

Around 325 AB, Comaelle was High Queen.

Before the Trolloc Wars

High Queen Comaelle's Counsel-Sister, Sereine dar Shamelle Motara, wrote a Commentary on the Karaethon Cycle around 325 AB.

The Trolloc Wars

As is known, Jaramide stood against the Shadow during the Trolloc Wars.

The fall of Barsine marked the beginning of the Trolloc Wars (LoC, Ch. 5).

After the Trolloc Wars

Jaramide was one of the nations that survived the Trolloc Wars. However, it soon fell due to its fragility. According to the maps, Abayan, Basharande, and part of Indrahar, and later Saldaea and Arad Doman, grew from the ruins of Jaramide.
