Olau (pronounced oh-LAU) was a barony in the northern regions of Tortall. It was situated near the Great Road North south of Trebond and north of Port Caynn, not far away from the port. Arenaver may be a city in Barony Olau.

History

In the past, silver had been mined in the Coastal Hills of Olau. The mines were abandoned, however, and Hansevor Remy, who was born and raised in a town of Olau, discovered a new silver mine there near Arenaver. He supplied Pearl Skinner with the silver and she produced false coins out of it, greatly damaging Tortallan's economy.[1]

Members

Known members of the House Olau included Myles of Olau, who was the baron and had no children of his own, although he later married Eleni Cooper. That's why he adopted Alanna of Trebond to be his heiress.[2] Her oldest son, Thom of Pirate's Swoop won't only inherit Pirate's Swoop but also Olau, thus becoming the baron after his mother's death, with the younger son Alan of Pirate's Swoop being allowed to live on either lands.[3]
