"I have visited Raladin many times (by invitation) & I can tell you that it is merely a peaceful, well ordered place of rounded earth-brick houses & halls set around a paved square with a central pool of water."

Raladin is the home of the Ralads and is the capital of the Ruby territory.

History Edit

Raladin was founded long before the Land of Dragons and Pirra were merged in the battle of fire and water. It has been the only home of the Ralads since its formation.

Tales of Deltora Edit

During the years before Adin's corination, the Ralad people kept to Raladin, even as their territory was colonised by people from all other tribes. To avoid attacks from other tribes, the Ralad people built a replica of their city underground, so they could hide from invaders and emerge when they had moved on.[2]

During the Shadow Lord's first invasion of the Land of Dragons, the Greers under the command of Wrass and Sheela sacked Raladin and spent the winter in the ruined city. However, they could not find the underground city, where the Ralad people were hiding. Adin was eventually brought to the underground city on his quest to add the great Ruby to his dream belt.[2]

Secrets of Deltora Edit

The Lake of Tears Edit

Manus was on his way back to Raladin after escaping fom Jin and Jod, when he was captured by a pod of Grey Guards. Lief, Barda, and Jasmine rescued him from the guards, and after a run in with Jin and Jod, Manus agreed to take them to Raladin.[3]

Upon arriving in Raladin, the companions found that the city was destroyed and branded with the Shadow Lord's mark. However, Manus played a discarded flute, which alerted the Ralads in their underground city. As thanks for returning Manus to them, the Ralads let the companions stay with them for a few days before venturing to the Lake of Tears. After the death of the sorceress Thaegan, Lief, Barda, and Jasmine returned to Raladin to partake in the festivities.[3]
