Valusia was a kingdom of Thuria during the Pre-Cataclysmic Era,[citation needed] ruled by King Kull circa 18,500 BC.[citation needed]

Prior to human rule, it belonged to the serpent-folk.[1]

It was considered one of the Seven Empires.[4][5][6][7]



The Serpent-Men ruled over Valusia.[1]

Human conquest

True men, ancestors of the Valusians, came from the East, crossing the Camoonian Desert and the Hills of Zalgara, and conquered Valusia from the serpent-folk. A few of those survived, went into hiding, plotting their way to reclaim their power.[1]

Unnamed king's rule

A legend among the Sea-Mountain Tribe mentioned a Valusian king, ambushed by Atlanteans, slain by Gandaro of the Spear and who turned into a Serpent-Man upon his death.[8]

Borna's rule

King Borna was a tyrant. Ridondo, Kaanuub, Enaros and Ducalon conspired against him, Ridondo having approached Kull (an Atlantean barbarian that had ascended as commander of the Black Legion), and made him favor Kaanuub as king.

Ridondo then pretended to Kull that he had heard Borna planning to abolish the Black Legion due to the threat it could pose to his power. Kull bought it and went to confront his king. Kull managed to slay Borna, and before Kaanuub could do it, claimed the crown for himself.[10]

Siege of the City of Wonders


After Kull used the amulet of Ka to restore Gallus' life and accidentally summoned the death in the orchards of Valusia, the king decided to throw off into the sea the magic item, thinking it was never meant for mortal keeping.[11]

Maxmelle, a Valusian knight, was attacked by a horde of savages and inadvertently saved by a shepherd-boy named Sedrick: the grateful knight then took him to the City of Wonders as his new squire.[12]
