The leader and ruler of the D'ni people. The King had authority to pass laws and to order construction and building works around the Cavern, although not always without opposition from the Guilds, the official Church, or religious sects.

The first King was Ri'neref, the writer of the Age of D'ni and leader of those who shared his ideals and followed him there.

After the construction of the King's Arch, all Kings sailed through the Arch as part of their coronation ceremony. The King sat on a gold throne, which was originally in the Regeltovokum, and later was moved to the Temple of the Great King.[1]

Kings under the age of 125 who didn't achieve the Age of Wisdom were required to have official advisors. The Great King Ahlsendar, even though he reached 125 near the end of his reign, was the only King who had not an official advisor.[2]

The King could appoint a heir either from his descendants or his associates. During long periods of absence it was customary to appoint his heir as regent.[3] After the controversy sparked with King Lemashal's heirs, a new law required that a King had to be of pure D'ni blood.[4]

As Ahlsendar was buried with his crown, at his coronation ceremony Solath was given a newly designed crown, and it was common opinion among the D'ni that such a crown should not be worn again.[5]

The last King was Kerath, who believed that Kingship was no longer the correct way to lead the D'ni. Seeing that the destiny of D'ni lay on the Guilds, he made the necessary reformations, leaving the authority of the Kings to a Council of Elders he appointed and abdicated.[6]
