Talas was the first king of Cambria, uniting the area under rule of law. His descendants ruled Cambria for hundreds of years before dying out during a plague. The throne sat vacant for 10 years, with the parliament making major decisions by vote. Finally, the peerage elected one of their own, Tharsis Phor, to take up the crown. Phor’s line descends to the present day, where Haikon the Second (formerly Hansing Phor) is the reigning monarch.
