Hornburg was a kingdom in the Highlands, founded by Beowulf, the second prince of the kingdom of Ferien, as a reward for leading its armies and conquering new lands. It is the site of The Gate of Finis, behind which the dark deity Galdera is imprisoned.
King Alfred was the last king of Hornburg, under whom Olberic Eisenberg and Erhardt served. Little did King Alfred know that Erhardt had entered his service with the sole intention of revenge. When Erhardt eventually killed King Alfred, Hornburg fell.
