The Seven Kingdoms were the human city-states founded after the Troll Wars and the fracturing of the great empire of Arathor, approximately 1,200 years before the First War. Though most held a sphere of influence including only their original cities, some, notably Lordaeron and Azeroth/Stormwind, came to control vast territories in the Eastern Kingdoms.
The Nations of Arathor Edit
- Arathor, later known as Stromgarde
- Azeroth, later known as Stormwind
- Kul Tiras
Current status Edit
At the time of World of Warcraft's launch:
- Alterac and Lordaeron have fallen.
- Stromgarde is hard pressed keeping what small territory they haven't lost yet, but is effectively fallen.
- Dalaran is largely rebuilt from the Third War.
- Stormwind is flourishing
- Gilneas has been ravaged by the Worgen curse.
- The state of Kul Tiras is (still) unknown.
