King Fundor the Magnificent was the first king of Sendaria. When the Tolnedran Empire decided that for the security of the Great North Road it was best for the region of Sendaria to become a separate kingdom, elections were held. After six years of voting and over seven hundred candidates, the winner was a rutabaga farmer.
