Alyrum (pronounced /əˈlɪərʌm/), officially the Duchy of Alyrum (Trellinese: Berend Alyrumoi), is a province of the Trellinese Empire. It is the tenth smallest province in Trellin and Hysera by total area, at roughly 25,182 square kilometres (9,723 sq mi).

The province borders Idisamo and the Straits of Jajich to the south, Pelna to the east and Saheri and Trelum to the north. Kahalkë, its largest city, is the provincial capital. With 7,313,859 inhabitants as of the 2013 census, Alyrum is the fourteenth-most populous province in the empire. Western Pelna, particularly its second and third cities, Rusetik and Leforn, as well as the city of Deleras, have grown substantially since the late twentieth century as the southern extreme of a network of satellite cities around Martheqa, the imperial capital.

The province has long been considered part of Trellin's heartland, its coasts having been settled by the Trellinese within the first century of the kingdom. Its importance to the growing empire was twofold: its dense forests first provided the wood for warships to ferry men across the Serëtanz and for the merchant vessels plying their trade on the Sea of Velar, and the land thus cleared was then used to grow crops to feed those armies or be sold at Velaran markets.
