Varrock is the capital city of Misthalin. After Falador, it is the most popular destination for new roleplayers looking for a place to get involved. This page should serve as an archive of in-character history and any major events that the city of Varrock has experienced, as well as a list of known rulers from Varrockian history.

Varrock's flag

Prince Path

  • No records were kept of this monarchy.

Princess Puppy

  • Tension rise between the Zamorakians in the city and the rest of Varrock.
  • The Guthixian church in northern Varrock is burned down by the Zamorakians. In retaliation, the Zamorakian church in southern Varrock is burned down.
  • Howdia Blakan, a priest at the Guthixian church, accidentally kills Alissa, a priestess at the Guthixian church.
  • Holly J. Blakan comes to Varrock to start the Varrock Academy.
  • Princess Puppy Roaldyn is killed by the Traven Kin, after Aztarwyn takes Varrock.

King Aztarwyn I

  • After a failed invasion, Aztarwyn is able to successfully take control of Varrock, hardly meeting any resistance.
  • Hardly anything interesting occurs during Aztarwyn's reign, thus making him the "Forgotten Ruler" of Varrock.
  • While Aztarwyn's army is absent from Varrock, the Traven enter the city and kill the supposed Princess Puppy, taking Varrock. He does not bother to invade it, however, plans for invasion and attacks did not go unattended.

Keeper John Traven

  • Taking the throne after the death of Princess Puppy, Keeper John Traven and family restored Varrock to it's former glory.
  • The Palace, under Keeper John's rule was given restricted access. No civilians or citizens were allowed entry without given consent. This caused an uproar with the citizens and others of Gielinor and the Palace would frequently be found with people attempting to breach it's defences.
  • The Traven eventually decided to retire from Varrock, in style, by the explosion of Varrock Palace.

King Zaox

  • After the destruction of Varrock Palace. King Zaox ordered its reconstruction using the original blue prints; with assistance from King Russia I of Ardougne, it was shortly rebuilt.
  • Nothing particularly interesting happens, and King Zaox shortly abdicates.

King Ikan Thayne

  • Ikan Thayne suceeded his father Lorience Thayne, days after the Thaynes managed to take the Varrock Throne, and Lorience stepped down due to his old age and poor health.
  • Ikan spent the early years of his reign repairing the citie's economy and ecostructure, leaving little time for anything else, such as military.
  • Ikan suffered attacks from the Sicarius family towards the twilight years of his reign, and turned to King Russia of Ardougne for aid.
  • The Sicarius were held off and Varrock lay in Thayne hands again, Ikan  hoping to create a close relationship with Russia.
  • However, Russia betrayed Ikan, sending Ardougnian troops to kill Ikan.
  • Ikan held off for several days, before eventually dying of a head injury.


King Plasma

  • Plasma, who was not known in Varrock beforehand, mysteriously appears and takes the throne.
  • Not long after having seized the throne, he is assassinated by Relius Grimdark and Lorelei Amaranth.

Queen Auda

  • Very few records were kept of this monarchy.
  • Auda is given the throne after Relius Grimdark and Lorelei Amaranth liberate the city from King Plasma.
  • Queen Auda marries Volet Vekon in the east church, the ceremony performed by Alexander Aerendyl, former King of Ardougne.

The Amaranth-Es'ir Concillum

  • No records were kept of this monarchy.

Queen Lorelei

  • Nothing particularly interesting happens, and Lorelei soon abdicates.

King Corvus

  • King Corvus spent his reign increasing the military ten fold and turned Varrock from a small city into a superpower.
  • Corvus was as a good king, but he was aged and not as young as the previous kings of Varrock. He had a reputation as a fairly kindhearted king who loved the city dearly.
  • King Corvus disappeared one day, leaving nothing but a blood covered note and a large, growing city.
  • It is unknown of what happened to King Corvus, but it is presumed that he is alive. (maybe it was the odd man who joined the city role-play a few days before he vanished) If that is the case, no one knows his whereabouts.

Prince Regent Darius

  • Darius refuses to take the title as King, in denial of the possibility of his father dying.
  • He oversees transition to a new King, deciding himself too young for the role.

King Zahrah

  • King Zahrah came into power, by the leaving of the last king, King Corvus. He was Kharidian, which made his claim and ascension to the throne all the more peculiar.
  • In his time, not many laws or important events took place.
  • Zahrah's reign was cut short when he was murdered at the hands of Zaox Le'Gaunt.

King Kato

  • After Zahrah's death at the hands of Zaox, he then approached Kato and his wife, Razia, at their bar offering them the throne; to which they accepted.
  • Kato meets with King Aztarwyn of Lionheart and the two form an alliance.
  • History goes here.
  • Bruce Clough forms the Vigilis Cruor in order to remove the "tyrannical" Kato from the throne.
  • The Cruor pushes Varrockian forces out of Edgeville.
  • Soon, Varrock is invaded, defended by archers from Yanille. The battle ends in Cruor retreat, with one loss.
  • Varrock is attacked again, with the slums being burned, by both the Kinshra and Cruor.
  • As it seems the Cruor is about to breach the castle, a Kinshra lord turns on Praetor Lamalock, who is teleported due to the attack. Remaining forces then retreat.
  • Dominus Bruce puts an end to the war at a cease-fire. No official treaty is signed, thus no official winner is declared.
  • King Kato continues to rule Varrock, and soon he abdicates. King Ehrick is chosen.

King Ehrick

  • Ehrick's rule came at a difficult time in Varrock; in which there was a growing threat from Morytania, food shortages, and the ever-present threat of wars from other, less stable nations.
  • Despite the attempted intervention of the Void Knights, Ehrick agreed to give residency within Varrock to the Sicarius. He would later remove them with the assistance of the Kinshra.
  • Ehrick made an alliance with the Kinshra which continued to last in one form or another until redefined under Queen Katrina.
  • The rule was plagued by several wars and rebellions, including one lead by Corvus Cross, former King of Varrock, who wished to reclaim the throne; the siege ending with the castle exploding, again.

Commonwealth Occupation

  • After Ehrick's betrayal of the Commonwealth in favour of the Kinshra, Corvus' forces tried to occupy Varrock. This did not last long.

The Restoration

  • The Commonwealth was overthrown and Ehrick was placed into power again.

The Flimsy Putsch

  • A coalition of groups succeed in overthrowing Ehrick, but fail to win over the public. They pass through several leaders before submitting to Ehrick's eventual victory.
  • An internal conflict arose within the Court of Varrock as several "shady" individuals, some whom were speculated to be less then human, were rumoured to exist; whispers of it heard amongst the populace. Zenthos Daemor, who was revealed to be a mahjarrat, was the ringleader of this.
  • Ehrick gathered up as many resources as possible; including an amulet that imbued him with some magical power, a pair of daggers of an unknown metal from Ardougne, and, most impressively, the shield of Arrav itself; which was lent to him by the Museum of Varrock at the behest of Ptolemy Dean. Ehrick managed to succeed at this duel, downing Zenthos; and, once more, a person decided to go out in style by exploding the palace. Luckily, the occupants, who were all in one room after the duel, were able to escape with the help of an unknown mage.
  • A statue was erected depicting the death of Zenthos, and many more profitable months of rule came from Ehrick.

Queen Johanna Del'Vair

  • Ehrick finally decides that enough is enough and hands Varrock over to his ally, Johanna Salvaint.
  • Johanna grants Joseph Adalhard the position of Governor, over Varrock while she focused on Burthorpe and Taverley. 
  • Only after a few short weeks, he's demoted and exiled from Varrock. 
  • Soon after, the Sicarius throw threats at the Queen. She evacuates Varrock to save herself. 

King Aldaren the Red

  • Aldaren threatens the City ruled by the moribund Queen Johanna and orders her surrender, which she agrees. Johanna flees the city, and Aldaren is announced the new ruler of Misthalin.
  • He builds alliances with Ardougne, the most powerful city in Gielinor at the time, and several different factions.
  • New defences of the city are established; this including ballistae built on platforms, and mounted along the walls at each entrance. Watchtowers are also established west, north, and south of the city.
  • Several groups of rebels are tracked down within the city, arrested, and executed. Their heads become mounted along the spear wall in front of the Palace.
  • The city's economy is stable, profiting from Aldaren's personal wealth (due to him selling Camelot a year ago), and various trade routes throughout the kingdom and neighboring kingdoms.
  • Two thrones are built in the throne room for future Kings and Queens.
  • A campaign to free the people left in Morytania is planned, but never carried out.
  • The people seem to enjoy Aldaren and Thea's rule. Many nights are spent in the Inns and Bars with loud singing filling the area as rejoicing and drinking become a daily activity.
  • -... And then, it was auctioned off; the buyers inheriting a castle with the coffers drained, the valubles dropped, and every single item that was not nailed down (and some that were) removed, including the doors, the windows, the pictures sans the frames, and Reldo's glasses. A singular book was left for the buyers of the city, titled "How to Furnish a Castle".

King Tyrinar (Pre-Invasion)

  • The city of Varrock is auctioned off to the shady shipping and trade company, Celestial Industries.
  • Celestial Industries elevates a lesser noble, now known as King Tyrinar I, to the throne.
  • King Tyrinar disbands all branches of the Varrock military, guard force, and militia. He replaces them with an elite, invitation only, multi-role military police force known as the Praetorian Guard. Brutus Vespillo becomes the Head of the Praetorian Guard.
  • Reports begin to come in of "savages" lurking outside of the city walls, harassing guard patrols. The government did not recognize them as a credible threat and did not take any official action against them.

Occupation of the Worshippers of the Dragonkin

King Tyrinar

  • The Worshippers of the Dragonkin infiltrate the city and gather in large numbers in Varrock square, inciting a riot which many armed civilians, mercenaries, and Praetorians were included in. Despite superior numbers, the Praetorian Guard and the sudden militias were driven from the square. The Worshippers then moved into the Palace, securing it, though not finding General or the King anywhere. Without strong leadership or coordination, the remaining Praetorian Guard were forced from the city after only light casualties, eventually regrouping in Edgeville.
  • With King Tyrinar in hiding at a "secure location," General Vespillo would meet with the leader of the Worshippers of the Dragonkin and a number of edicts designed to repress the practice of other religions and consolidate Worshipper control of the city are signed into affect. King Tyrinar and his government, however, are permitted to stay in power.
  • This wouldn't last long. Shortly after, King Tyrinar would abandon the throne and return to his status as a leser noble within Varrock. General Vespillo, along with the entire Praetorian Guard, would disappear after that, leaving Varrock in the hands of the Worshippers entirely. For a while, the throne remained empty, until someone else came to claim it as their own.

King Severin

  • Gains ownership of Varrock under the counsel of the Worshippers.
  • The Varrock sewers are renovated, as is the plumbing of the headquarters for the law enforcment officials and Wolfbane jail where the pipes are fed underneath the floor boards.

  • Nicolas Lavelle, the Grand Chancellor's son, is summarily expelled and banished from Kandarin for life, on the penalty of death were he to return, after he was arrested and accused of conspiracy to overthrow the monarchy in Kandarin. This event causes a deterioration of relations between Kandarin and Varrock, leading to a secretive defensive pact between the latter and neighboring Peasant Republic of Draynor.
  • Following a failed attempt to persuade Lumbridge to join a Misthalite defensive alliance, the Kingdom of Kandarin deploys its navy and initiates a blockade of Misthalite ports, as well as putting garrisons in Al Kharid and Lumbridge, to hinder trade with Varrock. Despite this blockade, the Grand Republic continues to fare well.
  • Rising sentiment in favor of a monarchy yields a dissolution of the republican government and the eighteen-year-old son of the Grand Chancellor, Nicolas Lavelle, is crowned King of Varrock in a private ceremony.

The Lavelle Monarchy

The House of Lavelle rose, once more, to the Golden Throne of Varrock when the Grand Republic of Varrock was dissolved. Led by Nicolas Lavelle, the son of the Grand Republic's first and only leader Joanna Lavelle, the young king's diplomatic approach would oversee the reunification of Misthalin and the reaffirmation of firm neutrality.

King Nicholas

  • Rising sentiment in favor of monarchy yields a dissolution of the republican government and the eighteen-year-old son of the Grand Chancellor, Nicolas Lavelle, is crowned King of Varrock in a private ceremony seen only by a handful of people, including members of clergy, the royal family and his advisors.
  • A new gang rises to dominance in Varrock, undertaking a series of kidnappings of important and notable persons in the government, as well as bank and caravan robberies. However, all kidnapped would eventually be rescued or released following the King's campaign to uproot the gang and end its criminal activities. It would see moderate success.
  • Following the collapse of the Republic of Sarimia, a successive state to the formerly-existing Peasant Republic of Draynor, its provinces were absorbed under the protection of the Kingdom of Varrock, however Nicholas returned the province of Sarim back to the Asgarnian realm and only annexed Draynor into his own.
  • King Nicholas marries the former assistant to the Steward of Misthalin, Jessa, after a brief courting period. Jessa is made the queen consort of Misthalin, although is given certain powers over the household.
  • The blockade Kandarin had put on the ports of Draynor and Lumbridge, as well as any other military presence in the area surrounding Varrock and Misthalin is lifted.
  • King Nicholas and Queen Jessa have their first child, a baby boy whom they name Nicolas after his father.
  • The Duchy of Lumbridge is finally restored as a vassal of the King of Varrock, after the Duchess' retirement from politics, thus reunifying the Kingdom of Misthalin under Nicholas and Jessa. At this point, the House of Lavelle was at its greatest height.
  • Goblins manage to overrun the defenses at Gunnarsgrunn, a settlement under the protection of the Crown of Misthalin, and occupy the barbarian village, causing refugees to pour into Varrock from the affected area.
  • An attack in Draynor, seemingly at the fault of the magi-terrorist group, Ordo Magi leads to the occupation of the abandoned Draynor Manor; first, by members of this group but eventually they would leave animated skeletons to guard the Manor.
  • King Nicholas and Queen Jessa have their second child, a baby girl whom they name Vanessa.
  • At least two republican revolutionary movements are founded at separate times during Nicholas' reign, but neither seem to gain much traction.
  • Following a challenge by Miranda, of House Lansing, and her rise in rebellion against their reign, Nicholas and Jessa abdicated the throne of Misthalin after a long reign, ending the Lavelle monarchy in Misthalin once again.

The Second Lansing Restoration

Upon the surrender of King Nicholas during a short lived rebellion, Miranda of House Lansing, former Queen Essiandar of Misthalin, retook the Golden Throne and restored House Lansings back as the Royal House of Misthalin.

Queen Essiandar (II)

  • Enjoying a strong power base in Lumbridge, Miranda Lansing rose in rebellion against what she viewed as a weak and inefficient monarchy. A mostly levied army was raised and marched untested through the Kingdom, able to force King Nicholas' abdication without a fight.
  • Miranda is crowned in Varrock and once more takes her regal name of Essiander.
  • Queen Essiandar first policies see to dismantling the nationalized army funded directly by the Crown and restore the rights to the wealthy nobility. Both in which were created by King Nicholas in an attempt to centralized power underneath the government.
  • Returning the ancient rights of the nobility see her popularity rise among the higher class, seeing Queen Essiandar as upholding the status quo.
  • Her 'Big Stick Policy' makes a return in the Kingdom's foreign policy, making fast enemies with Al-Kharid and taking a harsh stance on Misthalin's right in the world.
  • Empowering the nobility and wealthy merchants see a return in the form of a booming trade industry that enjoyed special benefits from the Queen's government.
  • The Queen calls together the military minds of the Kingdom in private to start drafting war plans for an invasion of Al-Kharid and later the whole of the desert. Delays and arguments would see this planned campaign rewritten numerous times through her reign and never saw the light of day.
  • Rumors swirl of many suitors that hold the Queen's attention at varying times. When the source of those rumors kept disappearing, the Court in Varrock begun to see Queen Essiandar as equally dangerous.
  • Queen Essiandar rules for a mainly quiet 10 years where Misthalin enjoys a splendid neutrality and trade boom. Unmarried and without any offical heir, the Queen announces her plans for an early retirement and begins the process of overseeing the shift of the throne to the next highest ranking noble house.
  • Once the politics end, Miranda withdraws back to her private estates in southern Lumbridge.

The Vandalar Monarchy

Aeran of House Vandalar stood as the least likely to achieve the throne upon the announcement of Queen Essiandar's abdication without a heir. Upon a violent show of power that saw his rival Lord Hastings killed in public, Aeran stood unchallenged to be the Queen's successor, beginning the rule of House Vandalar over Misthalin.

King Aeran

  • Well traveled and a dangerous foe, King Aeran rose to power with cleverness, charm and the smallest amount of brutality. Prior to being offically crowned King, Aeran took control of Varrock City Guard and all but took control of the City. Leaving only his rival Lord of House Hastings that he shortly killed.
  • Now unchallenged, Aeran crowned himself as King of Misthalin, starting a new chapter of Misthalin rule that would see the quiet Kingdom brought into the center of world politics.
  • With strong ties to the Kinshra Order, King Aeran formed an alliance with the Black Knights and begun planning for an Invasion of his southern neighbors; Al Kharid.
  • Supported by the Kinshra Order and his own army, King Aeran invaded Al Kharid with the complete element of surprise, falling upon the city without much challenge. Over the following week, the once grand city was looted and burnt.
