Duladel is a region of Opelon along the southern border of Arelon on Sel. Its people are mostly of mixed-blood, half Aonic and half JinDo and are known as the "most light-hearted, easygoing people in Opelon".[1][2]

History[edit]

Duladel Republic[edit]

The Duladel Republic was one of the major nations on Opelon during the time before the Reod. It was ruled by a group of citizens known as the Republican class. The members of the Republican class were elected by the Dula people.[3] The aristocratic segment of the population was fond of garish clothing.[4] The state religion of the Republic was Jesker which worshiped the Dor as a sort of overspirit.

Occupation by the Fjordell Empire[edit]

About six months prior to the restoration of Elantris the Duladel Republic collapsed. During a chaotic period a contingent of Derethi priests, led by the gyorn Hrathen[5], fomented a revolution. The Duladel Revolution was described as being even more violent than the Arelish Revolution following the Fall of Elantris; the Republican Class was killed in its entirety. A monarchy was then instituted and Shu-Dereth replaced Jesker as the state religion. Its collapse prompted the marriage of Prince Raoden of Arelon and Princess Sarene of Teod,[3] as those two nations were the only two non-Derethi nations left.

Language[edit]

Duladen was the language spoken by the Dula people. It reflected the "laid back, loose culture" of Duladel.[6]
