Nearly two centuries before the Spellplague, in the world of Abeir, a rebellious clan of dragonborn slaves managed to seize a province of the empire of Skelkor and free themselves from the rule of the Dragon Empress Gauwervyndhal. Renaming that province Tymanchebar, they fought bravely against flights of dragons to maintain their freedom. The dragonborn created many djeradi ("clanholds", in Draconic), settlements for each one of the clans. The most important of those was the one that eventually will be called Djerad Thymar, that became the capital of Tymanchebar. Among the rebel dragonborn clans of Abeir, Tymanchebar dragonborn were the most successful as they were able to create a state that ruled itself.
In the wake of the Spellplague, however, Skelkor, along with a great Abeiran landmass later known as Returned Abeir, was transported to Toril. During the process, a portion of Tymanchebar, in whose lands was located Djerad Thymar, was separated from Skelkor and fell in the Faerûnian land of Unther. With their capital city lost, the remaining dragonborn in Skelkor lost their fighting spirit and Gauwervyndhal was able to defeat them and reconquer what was left of the province.
