The Kingdom of An Tir began as a Principality of the West in August of A.S. VIII when Frederic of the West Tower and Anne of the White Tower were invested as the first Prince and Princess of An Tir.

In January of A.S. XVI, Manfred Kriegstreiber and Morag Campbell of Glenbourne became the first to ascend to the Sable Lion Thrones as An Tir became the ninth sovereign Kingdom in the Known World.

In the 21 years since that time, An Tir has grown to include 3 full Principalities: The Summits, in March of A.S. XXX, Avacal, in August of A.S. XXXI, and most recently, Tir Righ, in June of A.S. XXXVIII.

Among the most celebrated An Tirians are 7 "triple peers": Duke James Greyhelm, Sir Edward Ross, Viscount Edward Zifran of Gendy, Sir Ludwig von Lemminghaus, Viscount Scellanus of Skye, Viscount Theodulf of Borogrove, and Sir Y Blackhand.

However, An Tir's most honored citizen is easily the Dowager Princess Vicountess Janeltis Karaine, Starfollower, who was awarded the title of Dowager Princess and the rank of permanent royalty by the BoD on October 10th, A.S. XIII. Her passing is remembered in courts throughout An Tir to this day.
