Dragon Age: Requiem
The Orlesian Empire or simply Orlais is currently the largest and the most powerful nation in Thedas. It was founded by Kordillus Drakon I and its capital is Val Royeaux, as well as the Chantry’s seat of power and home to the Divine. Orlais is ruled by an Emperor or Empress.
Orlais is famed for its culture and extravagance. The current Empress, Celene I shares the expansionist dream of Orlais’s founder, Kordillus Drakon, that the nation’s borders should stretch to the edges of the continent. Furthermore, Drakon’s legacy continues to heavily influence Orlesian laws and social customs.
