The Ithal Crag was a large hill in the Royal Quarter of Darromar where the queen's royal palace of Faerntarn was built.[1]

GeographyEdit

The Ithal Crag was a rocky headland overlooking the River Ith to the south.[1]

SitesEdit

The lower portion of the hill was surrounded by the Garden of Rhinda.[1] A winding path from led up the hill and through the garden to the buildings at the top.[2]

On the top of the hill rested the two main buildings of the palace complex, the main keep and the garrison building, along with other buildings, all surrounded by a granite wall.[2] One of the city's four Watchtowers sat on the hill as well.[1]

HistoryEdit

In -221 DR, sixteen-year-old Darrom Ithal[3] defeated the Calishites at this location, bringing freedom to Ithmong—and ultimately Tethyr—again. The hill was named after him.[1]

The first royal palace was built on the site in 843 DR, after the coronation of Queen Alisande, and the palace of Faerntarn made use of the same structure.[2]
