History

Originally the southern corner of the Republic of Garonia, the region was variously owned by Eesdeheito, Great Kesh and several other nations. The Garonians are distant relatives of the Keshian tribes that inhabit much of the grasslands beyond the Glacei Mountains. Over the centuries the name gradually changed to Caronia, most likely due to language influences from Lac Glacei. The modern Caronians, like their Keshian cousins, are a pastoral people who were traditionally nomadic but have, due to outside cultural influences, since formed static settlements. Nonetheless they maintain a strong agrarian society, and Caronia is one of the top producers of wheat and other grains for the grand duchy.
