Aglarond is an magocratic state in the southwestern-most part of the Unapproachable East with its capital at Veltalar. Most of its land is covered by the Yuirwood. Filled with magic and mystery, it was ruled by one of the most potent spellcasters of the Realms: the Simbul, also known as the Witch Queen of Aglarond.
Among the inhabitants of Aglarond are many Elves and Half-Elves, from whom many live in Yuirwood, the large fey-woods in central Aglarond. Aglarond has the largest Half-Elven population in all of Faerun, around 381,000 (30% of the inhabitants).
