The Thelarike Kingdom was an ancient kingdom located in the geographical Buranian region of northern Europa on Eurth.


The name "Thelarike" comes from Thelar + rik (suffix: "king", "ruler"). It is related to the Buran tribe of Thelar. This tribe inhabited the northwest corner of Burania, including the Parnu peninsula. Out of this region formed the kingdom of Thelarike ("realm of Thelar").


  • Thelarania ("tribe of Thelar") includes the peninsula of what is now Deltannia.
  • Thelasur is the southern part. The name comes from Thelar + Sur / Syd (south). Present-day Tal Shiar.
  • Thelamark along the border with Volsci form of the name was Þelamörk or Þilamörk. The first element; Þilir was the name of the inhabitants, and is assumed to be connected with Þelli (pine). The last element mörk means forest or march.
