Lanayru Province is a playable faction in Hyrule Conquest.

History

The Lanayru Coast was first settled by Ocean Zora circa 5500 BG. These Zora would largely migrate to the Spool Swamp within the following 500 years, but some remained in the region, eventually coming under the rule of the Zora Dominion founded by their cousins who had migrated inland. Roughly 1000 years later, between 4000 and 3000 BG, the first Akkalans migrated into the region from Arcadia, forming the five Houses of Akkala. By 3200 and 3100 BG, one family, the Daltuns had settled roots down in eastern Lanayru, particularly the area around Seshei. The Daltuns became immensely wealthy as Bankers and Traders, financing the construction of Akkala Citadel. Against the traditions of both Akkalan and High Zoran culture, those living on the Lanayru Coast began to interbreed, resulting in the first Zora Hybrids. These Hybrids, despite persecution by their mother countries, continued to grow in population until they absorbed largely absorbed House Daltus and its bannermen. Over the centuries Lanayru would eventually become an independent Province under the shared jurisdiction of the Kingdom of Hyrule and Zora Dominion, developing their own unique culture and ethnicity distinct from Hylians and High Zoran.

Politics

Noble Houses

Lanayru Province has traditionally been dominated by a number of ancient family lines dating back to the time of Akkala. Of these, none was greater than the Akkalan House Daltus. Over the centuries, House Daltus and its bannermen were largely assimilated into the Zora Hybrid population, becoming Zora Houses. While the influence of the Noble Houses of Lanayru is much less prominent than the days of Akkalan rule, they nonetheless remain a major political force and retain blood ties to both the Hylian and High Zoran nobility.
