Shornhelm was ruled by King Hurlbert from 2E 522 to 2E 546 along with the North. During his lifetime, he was apart of House Branquette and married Countess Iphilia of House Montclair. When he died, Prince Phylgeon (his legitimate son) took up the throne at age of fourteen, championed by House Montclair. However, House Branquette and House Tamrith supported his older step-brother Prince Ranser, who was born out of wedlock form a poor Tamrith cousin.
Advisers of Phylgeon were contended that the legitimate son was the proper heir to the throne. King Phylgeon then proclaimed that "Howse Mount Clayre" was the royal house of Sharnhelm. When the Council of the North gathered to discuss the current situation, Ranser brought in a long lost Direnni decree that named House Branquette their "Breton Royal Delegates".
Sometime later Ranser became king of Shornhelm. After problems with High King Emeric, King Ranser's War had begun with the help of House Dorell, Montclair, and Tamrith on Ranser's side. Eventually the houses decided to leave the army knowing it's demise. Ranser's last effort was at a tor east of Shornhelm. Ranser was defeated and killed by one of his own generals at what was now known as Traitor's Tor.
House Montclair has annexed part of the city leaving Shornhelm divided. The Vestige visits the town when a Covenant informant told them to go to the city. They've ventured into the Fevered Mews and dealt with the threat.
