"Behold, Blackgard. The King's Landing of the east."
―Dyron Blackgard
Blackgard, (Wastelandic: VEDHIiM Ved-Hiim, "Black-City") (Valyrian: se Zōbrie Oktion, "the Black City"), also known as the Black City is the second largest city in the Seven Kingdoms, and by far one of the oldest major cities on the continent, dating back to the time of the First Men. It serves as the Borderlands' capital. Blackgard is ruled by House Blackgard. Blackgard is home to Ebonheart, the seat of House Blackgard.

History

Blackgard was originally built by the Children of the Forest, approximately 10,000 years ago. During their war with the First Men, they lost Blackgard to the humans who began occupying the Borderlands.

Blackgard was originally built as a small fortress located on an island in the Borderlands. After the First Men conquered the castle, Blackgard was expanded over the centuries into a thriving city.

Blackgard became the seat of the rulers of The Borderlands, House Blackgard, for millennia. Blackgard has known at least eight wars since the Blackgards were in control; The First Border Wars, the Second Border Wars, the Third Border Wars, the War of Succession, the Fourth Border Wars, the Fifth Border Wars, the Sixth Border Wars (the Borderlands Conflict) and the War of the Three Banners.
