Trapani was the capital of the Kingdom of Algarve. It was the seat of power for King Mezentio of Algarve. In the Six Years' War, Trapani was the target of Algarve's opponents and in the end of the Derlavaian War, was virtually destroyed by fierce fighting.

Captain Sabrino heard news of the war with Jelgava, Valmiera, and Forthweg from the square in front of King Mezentios's palace.
