Really? Who called it something before that? I guess that my point is that they probably didn't call it anything. We have to remember that the area that we are talking about is several thousand miles on a side.

This loose collection of Feudal Fiefs in the northwestern portion of Ansium comprises the larger Realm of Skolvendun.
But in reality, it is a moot point . We will, as we should, go with the collective wisdom as indicated by the poll
