The Kingdom of Taraban is a large kingdom located in western Croatia, and inside the Empire of Mordor. The Kingdom of Taraban was originally founded by Atlantians coming northward from Dol Amroth, and thus it stands alongside the Kingdom of Conarch as the only Numenorian kingdoms located east of Mordor. The Kingdom of Taraban capital is the vast port city of Armenelos of which has a population well above two thousand people and with several thousand Numenorians this is one of the most concentrated popuilations of the Numenorians. The Kingdom of Taraban was taken by Mordor early in Mordor's history, and fell only a few years after Conarch fell to Mordor and its fall would signil the first moment the Empire of Numeron took the growth of Mordor seriously.

The Kingdom of Taraban contains the largest population of Numenorians of any Kingdom in the entire world, and for this reason alone it is very influencial. The Kingdom of Taraban behind the Numenorians stands a vast majority of the population that is Atlantian, and they travelled into the Kingdom in massive numbers with the fall of the Empire of Numeron. 

The Kingdom of Taraban worships their official state religion of the One Eye of Sauron of which is also followed by the Kingdom of Conarch, and the Kingdom of Harad in the north. On the surface the entire kingdom appears devoted worshippers of the One Eye of Sauron but under the surface most still adhere to the Atlantian Pantheon, and because of this alongside only a few other kingdoms they worship one of the oldest human religions in excistence.

The Kingdom of Taraban is ruled over centrally by the King of Taraban of whom is the overall ruler of the Kingdom of Taraban, and like the King of Umbar he is quite independent with only minimal control held by Mordor, although at any point he knows Mordor could remove him if he steps out of line. Under the King stands two major orders in the form of the Church of the One Eye of which is the order that controls the worship of the One Eye of Sauron and its leader known as the Emrehil of Armenelos and his power is quite significant and tied to the goverment. The Second Order underneath the monarchy stands as the Black Army of Taraban of which is the standing army of sorts for the Kingdom of Taraban and it is controlled by a group of four men known as the Black Generals of which each leads one of the four sections of the Black Army.

The Kingdom of Taraban was founded following the Taraban province of the Empire of Numeron falling to the forces of Mordor, and during this time the traitorous Black Numenorian family of House Illeria would become the hereditary controlling family of the kingdom, but were forced to construct the fortress of Dul Dearin of which stood as the center of the Mordor control of the kingdom. The Kingdom of Taraban would become embroiled in the Jungle War with Kandor, and would suffer terrible casualties which forced the Orcs of Mordor to intervene or elce the Arakhora would have destroyed the entire front. Recouping their losses they would be sent alongside a large Orcish and Yaungol force being sent into the Dreadfort Penensila in order to defeat the Lucernian advance and establish a foothold into Westros.

Taraban Civil War

Main Article : Taraban Civil War

The Coup of Taraban
I killed my entire family daughter. Only you and your brothers were left when my vengeance was done.
Faw-Liazh Theirin Wide
What I did wasn't personal. My faith drove me.
Faw-Liazh Theirin

Following his return from Gondor his beloved Ol-Selise Theirin would die during childbirth and this emotionally devestated Loghair to the point that he was easy picking for his wife Liazh of whom by this point was a staunch believer in the One Eye of Sauron and this led to him joining the Mordor movement in Taraban as its figurehead and leader. Loghair would eventually discover that no matter what he did his father's culling of the Mordor influences in Taraban had led to the One Eye movement being severely weakened and thus he changed their plans and instead decided to simply remove his family of whom by this point his wife had convinced him had poisoned Selise while he had been away, and thus with his new plan in place he begin sneaking agents of Mordor into Taraban for what would become a very blood coup.

Persuasion

Fuh-Anora Theirin
You were tricked my neice. Your mother was beloved by my father. Look to my journal. That journal dictates my attempt under the order of my father to find out what happened to your mother. Do you know what I discovered. It was Liazh. All of this has been Liazh.
Har-Lohthan Theirin II.

While it was Rurzh-Loghair Theirin that had first suffered the manipulation of Liazh Theirin it would be Selise's daughter that would became the most important target, as Anora would alongside her father remain devastated by the death of her mother and in this depression she also became the target of Faw-Liazh Theirin of whom would come to treat Anora as a daughter for the first time. Using Anora's sadness she became the influence of the extremely dangerous Anora who was then tricked by her step mother into believing the death of her mother was the action of the royal family and she would support her father in his coup against their own family. During this time it was the Gondorian loyalists that were also attempting to discover who had murdered the dire hard Gondor loyalist in Selise, and in this action they would make a major mistake when they trusted Cailin Theirin. Rur-Cailin Theirin would take part in the Coup of Taraban when he was trusted by his half brother Deleyr and told important information about the movements of the loyalist forces, and despite loving his brother he betrayed him turning over this information to his mother leading to the massive speeding up of the Taraban Coup.

Your brother here is a part of the Gondor assasins that murdered your mother. Do you understand what that means? Your brother had betrayed you.
Faw-Liazh Theirin

As the coup reached the point where it was going to be launched certain elements within the family begin to catch on that something was afoot and most notable of these people was Rur-Deleyr Theirin of whom overheard his mother talking about the coming coup, and then made the mistake in confiding in Fuh-Anora Theirin about what he heard. Anora was so much in the throws of vengeance, and also knew about the coup so would lie to her brother and told him that she would tell their grandfather the king, but instead took this information and gave it over to Liazh of whom manipulated Anora into believing that Deleyr was a major conspirator in the Gondorian loyalist movement. Coming to believe this Anora would be ordered to kill Deleyrn but going to kill him she would be unable to kill the closest remaining member of her family and instead had her men drug him and then put him into the dungeon of Armenelos but told Liazh that he was dead.

Bloody Coup

Lohthan Theirin would be murdered by his son Lohgain of whom had been manipulated into believing that Lohthan had murdered his mistress, and despite attempting to talk his son down during their confrontation the emotionally shattered Lohgain would not listen to reason and killed Lohthan as well as much of House Theirin.

The Truth

During the coup of Taraban Anora would be sent with a force of twenty men to the fortress of Dur-Armentol where she was to assassinate her uncle Lohthan Theirin II. and his family and upon arriving she would fatally wound him but he revealed before his death the truth of what was going on and believing his story she assisted her aunt Delissa in keeping her cousin alive of whom she would sneak from the massacre and hide. Also realizing at this time that she had allowed her step mothers manipulation to allow her to betray her brother Deleyrn her hatred brimmed and she immediately begin plotting to also assist in getting Deleyrn out of his imprisonment.

Goverment

The Kingdom of Taraban is ruled over centrally by the King of Taraban of whom is the overall ruler of the Kingdom of Taraban, and like the King of Umbar he is quite independent with only minimal control held by Mordor, although at any point he knows Mordor could remove him if he steps out of line. Under the King stands two major orders in the form of the Church of the One Eye of which is the order that controls the worship of the One Eye of Sauron and its leader known as the Emrehil of Armenelos and his power is quite significant and tied to the government. The Second Order underneath the monarchy stands as the Black Army of Taraban of which is the standing army of sorts for the Kingdom of Taraban and it is controlled by a group of four men known as the Black Generals of which each leads one of the four sections of the Black Army.

Loghair Theirin was born the heir to House Theirin and the Kingdom of Taraban, and he was sent immediatly to Umbar as a young boy by agents of Mordor of whom wanted to keep him away from his father who was straying frrom the Mordor line in recent years. Growing up in Umbar he would take part in the Gondor Civil War where he fought in the final battle of Narvine Field where he was taken prisoner by Gondor. A prisoner of Gondor for many years he watched several of his friends die in captivity and became fanatically angry towards the Gondor people, and thus after years as a prisoner he was finally ransomed off and returned to Umbar briefly. Back in Umbar he conspired with Taraban Mordor loyalists to turn against his father and staged a bloody coup alongside his first born son Teyrn which ended with the murder of his father and his two younger brothers and one of his sisters. Now king of Taraban he became very intreverted as he feared for assassinations and secluded himself more and more into the capital while he left ruling the kingdom to his daughter Anora of whom was extremely brilliant.
