Morsgrad was a previous capital of the Kingdom of Norland, replacing Dunharrow briefly after it died. It was constructed in 1725, by Edvard II Edvardsson Ruric. The city was the capital of the Kingdom in Arcas during that time it was home to primarily by humans, though there was a sizable elf population as well.
After Edvard II, Earl of Morsgrad ordered for the destruction of Dunharrow, Norlanders briefly inhabited a settlement named Pinemarch just north of the Kingdom of Haense where High Keeper Tyr had placed his hearth fire for the Red Faith. Pinemarch held strong for a couple months leading up to the disappearance of Edvard II, after a pilgrimage around Arcas Edvard II would go on to call a Chiefsmoot in Pinemarch for the establishment of Morsgrad. In the early winter of 1725, Edvard alongside his close friend Lorien would set out for an expedition to find proper land to build the city. After a year of searching, they discovered a snowy isle near the now-former city of Curon. Alongside his son Godric, the three designed the city of Morsgrad, and built most of it by hand alongside a few conscripted builders. In the span of four years, the city would be erected. Morsgrad would rival that of the Krag, being both siege proof and appealing to the blind eye. The construction of the city began with numerous builders traveling towards the city ground, after merely a few months the construction had already begun and a move which shocked many of the Heartlanders assisting in overseeing this tedious task, they saw the Lord himself carrying and laying bricks, and overall assisting in the construction of the city, and act which was common amongst the Norlanders but not as well known. After many sleepless nights, the few men constructed the city of Morsgrad, after looking at the city from afar he noticed that no man could penetrate its walls.
