Erathia is a kingdom on the continent of Antagarich. It is ruled by Gryphonheart dynasty, and it is inhabited mostly by the humans. Most of the campaigns in Heroes of Might and Magic III - Restoration of Erathia and its expansions Armageddon's Blade and Shadow of Death take place in Erathia.

History[edit]

The nation was founded by Rion Gryphonheart during his uprising against the Barbarian King Tarnum. The throne remained in the hands of the Gryphonheart dynasty until Queen Catherine married Roland Ironfist of Enroth (nation).

In 1164 AS, the Erathian King, Nicolas Gryphonheart was poisoned by Lord Haart. The commander Morgan Kendal took control of the country in absence of the former king's daughter and heir to the throne, Catherine Gryphonheart, who was living on the continent Enroth with her husband, Roland Ironfist, King of Enroth. Erathia's neighbours chose to take advantage of this situation. The west part of Erathia was invaded by Tatalia and Krewlod forces, the east and south were taken under the control of the united Eeofol and Nighon armies, and the north fell to Deyja. After the initial attack, Queen Catherine finally arrived from Enroth and landed on the shores of Southern Erathia. With the help of general Sir Christian, she was able to regain control of this part of country, and began her march for the Erathian capital, Steadwick. To accomplish this task, she sought help from the forces of Bracada and AvLee.

Meanwhile, Steadwick fell to the hands of Kreegans and Nighon. The Deyjan necromancers used their magic to resurrect king Nicolas, who then led the undead armies against his former nation. But with help from Bracada, Catherine managed to recapture Steadwick. Together with Mages and Elves, the Erathian military drove out all of the invaders.

Queen Catherine Ironfist (née Gryphonheart) stepped down as the Queen of Erathia, during the final events of Armageddon's Blade, and she no longer had authority to command her father's kingdom. The throne fell to Gen. Morgan Kendal, the highest General in Erathia and the commander of the Royal Erathian Military Command, who had previously ruled the kingdom after the murder of King Nicolas Gryphonheart. General Kendal was the last ruler of the kingdom of Erathia before its destruction in The Reckoning.
