Alterac

Alterac was one of the seven human nations to join the Lordaeron Alliance during the Second War. It was situated in foothills and mountains of the land now known as Alterac Mountains. Ruled by Lord Aiden Perenolde, Alterac was the weakest kingdom of the Alliance and a relatively small contributor of soldiers and supplies.

Fearing for his kingdom should the Alliance fail, Lord Perenolde collaborated with the Horde, supplying them with information in exchange for the survival of the kingdom. Perenolde arranged for a convoy of high elves passing through Tarren Mill to be ambushed by trolls, organized a peasant revolt in Tyr's Hand to cover mining operations there, and attempted to assassinate Sir Uther Lightbringer, employing pirates to tamper with the Order of the Silver Hand.

After Perenolde's treachery was uncovered, the mighty army of Stromgarde, led by Thoras Trollbaneturned its wrath upon the small kingdom, ruthlessly crushing it and imposing martial law.  Lord Daval Prestor of Alterac had remained loyal to the Alliance, and allowed Thoras and his forces to pass unharmed, ambushing orcs in the process. Following the end of the war, Thoras Trollbane demanded that the eastern portion of Alterac be annexed to Stromgarde in recognition of its efforts and sacrifices during the conflict.
