Eliria, which is also known as the Kingly City of Eliria and the City of Lyres, is the capital of the Elwynnese Union and of the Bailiwick of the same name. A Royal City, it was the first city to be chartered in Elwynn during the Ducal 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 capital of the aforesaid 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.
