Many years in the past the wife of King Cyard of Ryland, bore him triplet sons. King Cyard loved them equally. Wanting each of them to have their own kingdom, Cyard and his wife divided the Kingdom of Ryland, and gave one part to each son. The major portion of the Kingdom was given to the first-born son and continued to be called the Kingdom Ryland. The two younger sons were given smaller parcels of land bordering the ocean. These were named Fynd and Kier.
