Baronkhan is the greatest country of the Misty Mountains and until the discovery of the true heir to the throne, it was also a country of slavery and tyranny.

History

Baronkhan seems to have been founded around 500 years ago. Like most of the countries in the Misty Mountains, it was for a very long time a place of tyranny and slavery. Finally, its old ruler became father of a daughter, Lisandra, his only child. Lisandra went to a school in Europe, fell in love with a fellow student, and married him in secret. The old ruler was outraged and tried to annull the marriage, but too late; Lisandra was pregnant. At the time of birth, Lisandra died, but her son survived. The day after, Lisandra's husband died mysteriously. The old Prince of Baronkhan then ordered Lisandra's son to be taken away for adoption and forbade anyone to ever mention Lisandra's name again in the whole country. However, his evil cousin Badur tried to kill the baby, only by the brave acts of the boy's nurse, Norada, did the boy survive and was finally found and adopted by the Phantom who named him Rex.

Twelve years later, the old ruler found out about the plot. Slavery was then abolished as an honor to Rex. The evil Badur was sentenced to be drawn and quartered, however, Rex made the old ruler change the punishment so that Badur was let to live, thereby signaling a new course in punishments.

Later, another attempt on Rex, and the old Prince's life was made, and count Semon, the mastermind behind it, was, together with his two supporters, informed that the normal punishment would have been drawn and quartered but that Rex had changed it hard labor. Visit to Baronkhan

When count Veronk, made an attempt on Rex' life, the old Prince of Baronkhan died of a heart attack. This time there was never any talk about any breaking on the wheel, but count Veronk and his supporter were deported to the Tirangi tribe. Ruler of Baronkhan

When sergeant John made an attempt on Prince Rex' life, he was sentenced to hanging (though later pardoned), thereby indicating that drawn and quartered had been abolished as a capital punishment. Rex: Prince of Baronkhan

There have also been some problems with their neighbor country Shambad concerning the border line. Though this has been eased up.
