The Mir Protectorate was located in the Duchy of Suretmarch, south of counties Alonmarch and Surkazar. It was the only region of Tethyr where humans were in control of large forests—at least in name.
During the Interregnum, however, the Mir Protectorate was ruled by Thenas Haddarm, former mayor of Kzelter, who captured Mistletoe Keep (then called Yuldar's Keep), soon after the Ten Black Days of Eleint. After Queen Zaranada came to power, he was beheaded, and control of Mirkazar was returned to Yuldar.
Since the time of Strohm II, this region had historically been a military holding, for the greater defense of Tethyr. The soldiers there kept the monsters and dangers of the Forest and the Marching Mountains at bay. With the fall of Kzelter in 1370 DR, this put a strain on the number of troops able to keep watch on the woods.
