Notes

  • The continent is named after the Hyborians, the ancestral tribal group which founded several of its kingdoms. In the essay The Hyborian Age (1936), Robert E. Howard gave a detailed history of the setting. According to Howard, the Hyborians named themselves after their patron god, Bori.[citation needed]
