A Kingdom is an often seen form of government in the many regions on Gielinor, where a King or Queen, or similar title such as Pharaoh, rules the region. These regions are generally inhabited and ruled by one of the several races of RuneScape.


Human controlled kingdoms

Falador map

Falador, the capital of Asgarnia.

  • Kandarin - Kandarin is ruled from the city of Ardougne, which was divided between Lathas and Tyras upon the death of their father. West Ardougne, the domain of Tyras, is sealed shut on orders of Lathas, due to claims of plague infection being rife in the slums there. Other locations within Kandarin are the Seers' Village and Camelot, the fishing village of Catherby, the ogre-besieged city of Yanille, and the Mahjarrat-controlled Fight Arena and Port Khazard.
  • Menaphos - not much is known about Menaphos, as it has imposed quarantine on itself due to an outbreak of plague in neighbouring Sophanem. The other side of the River Elid from Sophanem, the only bridge connecting the two is blocked. It is ruled by an unnamed Pharaoh.
  • Miscellania & Etceteria - the islands of Miscellania and Etceteria are ruled by King Vargas, who suffered under a curse that turned him into a yeti for some time, and his wife, Queen Sigrid. The regent of Miscellania, appointed during Vargas' cursed time, is the same adventurer who helped end the curse.
  • Jatizso - King Gjuki Sorvott IV is the despotic ruler of the town and islands of Jatizso. He has imposed ever higher and more ridiculous taxes on his people, in order to raise money to fight against the neighbouring island of Neitiznot.

Kingdoms controlled by other species/races

Other Planes

  • Fisher Realm - the Fisher Realm is a human kingdom which was ruled by Fisher King, who was succeeded by Sir Percival following his death.
  • Zanaris - a bizarre kingdom on RuneScape's moon, Zanaris is home to the fairies, who control the weather of RuneScape, and said to be the nexus of all planes. It is the hub of the fairy ring network and largely disobeys the laws of physics and logic. After being deposed for a short time by the Fairy Godfather and his mafia, the Fairy Queen once again rules Zanaris.
  • Land of Sunlight and the Land of Holly - the Land of Sunlight is ruled by the Queen of Sun, inadvertently created by Guthix to ensure the balance of hot and cold weather. 
  • Land of Snow and the Land of Hawthorn - the Land of Snow is ruled by the Queen of Snow, inadvertently created by Guthix to ensure the balance of hot and cold weather. 
  • Britain - a location formerly ruled by King Arthur, until he travelled to RuneScape nearly two score years ago
