Arpad was the Ekrekek (king) of Gyongyos during the Derlavaian War. His country and Unkerlant were fighting border skirmishes in the Elsung Mountains well before Algarve annexed Bari.[1] In addition, Gyongyos was also fighting the island nation of Kuusamo for control of Obuda.[2] However, Swemmel of Unkerlant decided to turn his attention to Zuwayza, and entered into a truce with Arpad,[3] leaving Kuusamo the only consistent enemy of Gyongyos for the rest of the war.

Arpad doggedly pushed his country throughout the war, continually insisting that Gyongyos was winning, even as the tide was obviously turning and the country was constantly being ravaged.[4] Arpad and his entire clan were killed when Kuusamo destroyed Gyorvar, the Gyongyosian capital, in the closing days of the war.[5] The country surrendered shortly after.
