Lencia came to be when a small band of mercenary adventurers were tasked with conquering and unifying the West frontier in exchange of land grants for the king of Todare about 300 years ago. The adventurers set off with a Letter of Marque and minimal support from the crown, campaigned for years to defeat the monsters and nomad tribes inhabiting the region while colonists from Todare settled new conquered lands.
After the surviving adventurers finished their task they presented their accomplishments to the new king of Todare, only to see their covenant and promised rewards being turned aside by the crown.
Quickly returning to the conquered region, the adventuring band rose an army and waged a successful guerrilla war against their former liege lord and the invading royal army. After victory the city of Lencia was founded and the eight victorious adventurers set themselves as an ruling oligarchy of eight families over the new Duchy of Lencia.
