Tordanal is a great shipping power due to its position on the river Mwyridion, so the duke is economically and militarily strong. It is ruled by Kieran ap Tordan, Lord of Tordanal and Duke of Morgannwg.
Before the Great War, the population was believed to be above 100,000 people including those within and without the city walls. During the war itself most of the buildings beyond the walls were razed by the invaders. The exception to this destruction was the sprawl of slums to the west of the city that link Tordanal to the harbor. Post-war population is thought to be no more than 60,000 due both to deaths during the siege and emigration to Esturiak.
