}}The Kingdom of Helmsdeep was a Minecraftian Kingdom located in the continent of Westeria, founded shortly after the Kingdom of Kythira during the Second Era.
   
After coming out of the War of Two Kings victorious, Helmsdeep became the dominant force in Minecraftia until the end of the Second Era, when during the Great Grief King Whazajottom of Redstonia stabbed Helmsdeep in the back, destroying most of the kingdom and leading King Mercenary into a trap, killing him.
+
The King of Helmsdeep was originally from the Spawnlands. Helmsdeep was a great power for most of its existence. Existing during the chaotic times of the Second Era it eventually fell during the Great Grief due to betrayal by the Von Roterstein family, who ruled the Kingdom of Redstonia.
   
  +
==History==
Helmsdeep during its prosperous period was a nation with a extreme focus on military strength, prohibiting any signs of weakness in either themselves or their allies. This military tradition today still remains in in the Province of Valyria and the Province of the Reach, due to the influences of the former Helmsdeep colony of Marsadini - today known as Lannisport. It was known for massive expansion southwards, building at the time the biggest cities and buildings the world had ever seen, and displaying their wealth in the form of two giant diamond swords in front of the royal palace and throne room. Today this building is used as a headquarters for the Mercenary Bank, but the swords still remain.
 
  +
The Kingdom of Helmsdeep was established by Lord Mercenary of House Hurdræber. It originated as a castle build on top of the Helms Mountains, which would later become the Sverdpalass Castle. Crowning himself King, the new ruler would soon come into conflict with the Kingdom of Kythira, located north of the Valley Lands, a large valley in between the two kingdoms, with both sides claiming the Valley Lands as their sovereign territory.
   
  +
Helmsdeep soon became focused on raids as a means of income, first raiding the Kingdom of Kythira multiple times until they submitted after the War of Valley Lands, which saw the destruction of the Helmsdeep fleet and a blockade of their riverways into the Narrow Sea. However, secret tunnels under the Valley Lands ultimately allowed several Helmsdeep raiders to break into the Kythiran capital and destroy several buildings, including the world's first public library, which resulted in the Kythiran Kingdom capitulating.
To finance this expansion, the Kingdom during its founding used to trade with the Spawnlands - today known as the Riverlands. However, fearing that the influx of wealth would allow Helmsdeep to become the most powerful kingdom in Minecraftia, Kythira set up strict sanctions. This however backfired, leading to Helmsdeep holding raids on the Spawnlands that would only end after the Great Grief destroyed most of the known world.
 
   
  +
Afterwards the Helmsdeep raiders focused their attention on the heavily populated but unprotected Spawnlands. This would ultimately result in Lord Whazajottom Von Roterstein to emigrate east to escape the raids together with a small party, where upon discovering the Peninsula of Peril on the Narrow Sea they would establish the Kingdom of Redstonia.
Fleeing these raids were a small band of refugees under Whazajottom, who would eventually settle on the Peninsula of Peril, founding the Kingdom of Redstonia, crowning Whazajottom as their king.
 
   
  +
The Kingdom of Redstonia soon became trusted allies of the Kingdom of Helmsdeep. In order to allow contact between the two nations, the city of Marsadini was constructed by Helmsdeep to evade the Kythiran blockades, with Redstonia colonizing several smaller towns around Marsadini.
At the end of the Second Era, with Kythira at the verge of collapse and Redstonia as an ally producing weaponary, Helmsdeep decided to conquer the known world alltogether. However, after succesfully taking both Kythira and the Spawnlands, forcing the remaining Kythirans and their King to flee north into the dense forrests to a bunker they had construted earlier, Redstonia blew up most of the Helmsdeep capital, trapping King Mercenary in the destruction, killing him. Without his leadership nor the wealth of Helmsdeep which was raided by Redstonia whilst Helmsdeep was occupied in the Spawnlands, the Kingdom almost immediately collapsed.
 
   
  +
In order to form a unified front against the Spawnlands, the Redstone Alliance was founded, a military union between the Kythiran, Redstonian and Helmsdeep Kingdoms.
Instead of a Helmsdeep Empire under a blue crossed banner, only ashes remained until Kythira returned in the third era, taking over the ruins of the former kingdom and rebuilding it, uniting the old Helmsdeep capital with the former Kythiran capital, to form what is today the Imperial City of Helmira, the capital of the Kythiran Empire.

The Kingdom of Helmsdeep was a Minecraftian Kingdom located in the continent of Westeria, founded shortly after the Kingdom of Kythira during the Second Era.

The King of Helmsdeep was originally from the Spawnlands. Helmsdeep was a great power for most of its existence. Existing during the chaotic times of the Second Era it eventually fell during the Great Grief due to betrayal by the Von Roterstein family, who ruled the Kingdom of Redstonia.

History

The Kingdom of Helmsdeep was established by Lord Mercenary of House Hurdræber. It originated as a castle build on top of the Helms Mountains, which would later become the Sverdpalass Castle. Crowning himself King, the new ruler would soon come into conflict with the Kingdom of Kythira, located north of the Valley Lands, a large valley in between the two kingdoms, with both sides claiming the Valley Lands as their sovereign territory.

Helmsdeep soon became focused on raids as a means of income, first raiding the Kingdom of Kythira multiple times until they submitted after the War of Valley Lands, which saw the destruction of the Helmsdeep fleet and a blockade of their riverways into the Narrow Sea. However, secret tunnels under the Valley Lands ultimately allowed several Helmsdeep raiders to break into the Kythiran capital and destroy several buildings, including the world's first public library, which resulted in the Kythiran Kingdom capitulating.

Afterwards the Helmsdeep raiders focused their attention on the heavily populated but unprotected Spawnlands. This would ultimately result in Lord Whazajottom Von Roterstein to emigrate east to escape the raids together with a small party, where upon discovering the Peninsula of Peril on the Narrow Sea they would establish the Kingdom of Redstonia.

The Kingdom of Redstonia soon became trusted allies of the Kingdom of Helmsdeep. In order to allow contact between the two nations, the city of Marsadini was constructed by Helmsdeep to evade the Kythiran blockades, with Redstonia colonizing several smaller towns around Marsadini.

In order to form a unified front against the Spawnlands, the Redstone Alliance was founded, a military union between the Kythiran, Redstonian and Helmsdeep Kingdoms.
