The Coat of Arms of the Kingly City of Eliria
The mists of Mo'lluk cover the Kingly City of Eliria.

Eliria, which is also known as the Kingly City of Eliria, is the capital of Elwynn. A Royal City, it was the first city to be chartered in Elwynn during the reign of Scott of Alexander (1452–1470). It forms part of the City and County of Eliria, a Royal Precinct of Elwynn, and also is the captital of the City and County of Eliria. Its metropolitan area makes it the largest city in Elwynn.

Eliria is the only Royal City which has the style "Kingly" in lieu of "Royal", a special distinction granted by the White Orchid Throne to denote that Eliria is the seat of the Royal Government of Elwynn.


Eliria's name differs depending on which language used:

Each of the names come from old Elw enu elirioon, "the place of lyres". According to legend Tlygowa the Lyrist, en Elfinshi lady famous for her music, founded the city at what is today Eliria Castle.
