9 Centuries Ago
[Lilara enters the library and begins searching. Quickly getting impatient she asks the librarian a few questions]
'Are there any records of any creatures in the area - such as a dragon, who was alive 900 years ago?'
'Are there any records with any mention of '9 kings' or even any records of any 'king' 900 years ago?'
[She would thank the librarian for his time after his response].

The chief librarian explains casually, as one would to a small school child that roughly nine hundred years ago, some time between 376 DR and 432 DR, Cormyr was invaded by many dragons, including Thauglor, laying waste to virtually all of the settlements in the country. It was then raided by orcs from the Stonelands, who occupied the King's Forest until they were finally driven out in 429 DR by King Duar Obarskyr. By 432 DR however, many noble families had left Cormyr for the Dalelands or Waterdeep, or split into small factional bands. The city of Suzail was sold to Magrath the Minotaur and his pirates by a traitor to the crown around this time, and it was after Magrath's death that the Purple Dragon was adopted as the nation's official symbol. The librarians explain there was only king Obarskyr ruling Cormyr in those years. He ruled from until 480 DR and was born in 385 DR and was proceeded by Azoun I b. 358, d. 425. and succeeded by Galaghard Obarskyr b. 434, d. 514.
