History

The city of Raggleneth, home of the Dukes of Rag of The Petty Kingdoms of Pretany was first recorded as a bustling hunting tribal village of nearly 3,000 people, named in 770AD, during the trade route migrations by Sathrian and Kalmish traders. It is one of the oldest cities in Pretany, with continuous documented history since the 4th century AD. The village was well known as a way-point in the Pretanic landscape when the Great works of Palast was written. The city continued to thrive after a hostile takeover by the Antigo tribe sometime in the mid 6th century, and then became part of the Inaran Nation in 840AD.
