The garden of the Upper City (concept art)

King Roderick is said to have built (or ordered the building of) the garden within The Upper City in Divinity's Reach around 1265 AE.[1] Little else is known about him, but he is very likely to have been King Baede's eldest son, and possibly the grandfather of Queen Jennah.


  • Rurik is an Old East Norse derived form of Roderick, which is a Germanic name.
    • Probably not just a coincidence, Rurik was the last prince of Ascalon. He tried to save some of his people from the charr by leading them through the Shiverpeak Mountains to Kryta, but died on the mountains to save his folk.
