Megenfrit (Vierz: Meginfrid or Meginfried, Deoran: Mēgenfritus), known in the Molvic world as Padovold and by Granzerians as Liüntika, was the ruler of a confederation of Grozyar, Molvic, and Veisic tribes in eastern Patyria. In 537 CE, he led his armies into the declining Deoran Empire, ultimately laying siege to and sacking Deora; his invasion led directly to the final collapse of the Deoran Empire. His tribal ethnicity is unknown; Grozyars, Molves and Veisics each claim heritage to him. Megenfrit, Padovold and Liüntika were long believed to have been separate figures, before historical consensus determined that these were in fact the same figure.
