This article is about the historical city before it was divided. For the two modern cities often called "Ardougne", see East Ardougne and West Ardougne

Ardougne was a city in the realm of Kandarin under the rule of King Ulthas Ardignas until he died in the Year 107 in the Fifth Age (according to display case 47, north-east top floor, Varrock Museum). His sons, Tyras and Lathas, divided it into the two cities of East Ardougne and West Ardougne due to the rivalry between them.[1] King Tyras eventually left on a crusade into the Elven lands in the west, abandoning West Ardougne to a terrible plague.

Ardougne was made the capital of Kandarin in Year 1964 of the Fourth Age. East Ardougne and West Ardougne is the modern capital of Kandarin. East Ardougne currently ruled by King Lathas. West Ardougne is governed by King Tyras and is accessible only by members who have started the Plague City quest. Both cities are members-only.
