 Daventry - KQ Omnipedia
The name can also refer to Castle Daventry, the great keep and seat of power for the Kingdom of Daventry, and Daventry Town (which is not far from from the castle), and in some cases it is an alternate title for the continent of Serenia.
Daventry is (at least in the view of noted Daventry writer Derek Karlvaegen) the greatest kingdom on the continent, and there is a great deal of evidence to support his belief.
Daventry at the time was surrounded by many stone walls built by other kingdoms to prevent the dragon from leaving daventry and ravaging their lands, and the Great Tear ripped Castle Davantry from its foundations and settled it back on the ground unscathe(though the tear left the moat drained).

Daventy became a market town in medieval times, and the town was incorporated under a royal charter in 1606, and a new royal charter was granted in 1674.
