Gontal was an isolated kingdom in southwestern Returned Abeir that had only been settled for one hundred years by 1479 DR.[1]


Gontal was ruled by Queen Imreera Hethkantan, who lived in the capital city. The Queen was a hands-off ruler who appeared to be more interested in sending expeditions to the Glaur Barrens than in actively ruling the land. The Twelvefold noble families held a large amount of power and some considered the families to be the true rulers of Gontal.[1]


Prior to the Spellplague, a huge metallic fortress erected by a dawn titan (primordial) stood in northern Gontal, which caused both dragons and humanoids to avoid the area. When the Spellplague sent Returned Abeir to Toril, the fortress exploded creating an area known as the Glaur Barrens.[2]
