The Lhedwinic archipelago, commonly referred to as Lhedwin, is a geo-political region located in the northwest of the continent of Asura. It is made up of five sovereign states: Glanodel, Navack, Crylante, and Vrnallia.

Etymology

The term Lhedwin originates in the Mân Lhaeraidd language as Lledwin or Gwlad Ledwin. The word Lledwin is itself a compound of lled- "foreign" and win, the soft mutation of gwin "wine", originally meaning "mead" or referring to a specific variety of mead which was introduced to Tir Lhaeraidd by people from Lhedwin (the usual word for "mead" being med or medd). The name Gwlad Ledwin "land of mead" was sometimes applied to the region of Lhedwin, but later the word Lledwin itself supplanted this phrase. As the distinct groups of Lhedwin lacked a common name for their region, this word was borrowed from the Lhaeraidd and is the origin of the name used in the various varieties of the Lhedwinic language as well as in Ostric.

The Vrnallian name Tambiu and Nausikaan Tappu originate in the Old Vrnallian word t'ábbu "east", as mainland Lhedwin lies to the east of the Vrnallian archipelago.
