Is Hyboria and Hyperboria the same thing?
Thanks in advance!

:shock: :lol:rigante said:Of course, there is also a region in France called Saxony.
VincentDarlage said:There are Anglo-Saxons, but no land of Anglo-Sax. There are Vikings, but no land of Viking. Thus there are Hyborians, but no Hyboria - although some pastiche authors, such as Steven York, insist on referencing Hyboria as though it were a land).
Evil_Trevor said:In fact the term Anglo-Saxon is a modern one...
Likewise the Vikings were, in thier own time...
rigante said:There may not be a land called Anglo-Sax, but there is a region in England called East Anglia which is derived from the Angles (which were one of the two tribes that made up the Anglo-Saxons - The Angles and the Saxons).
Of course, there is also a region in France called Saxony.
VincentDarlage said:Perhaps I should have said that there are Apaches but no kingdom of Apache. It is just a tribal name. Would that have satisfied better?

Zul Daire said:René said:Any theories on Nemedia?
If you look in the "The Road of Kings" on pg 91 under Nemedian History it says "The Hyborians divided up the land and the Nemedi settled the eastern end of Acheron's holdings."
Other Hyborean entries will say similiar with the name of the tribe settling the land being the root word of the named kingdom.
No reason we can't make this thread a history lesson if its a Hyborian one (Hyborea being the dominant kingdom of the age). :wink:
René said:You're right, but I was obviously a little unprecise with my abbreviated question. Seeing "Brythunia is related to the Britons." in a former post I wondered where the term Nemedia may originate from.
