Elensefar is a coastal city-state among the realm of Wesnoth, situated along the Great River Delta. It is believed to have been founded soon after humans came to the Great Continent. Its name, Elensefar, also shows some connections to the elves, as the elvish capital of Lintanir forest is named Elensia. In addition, Delfador even once referred to it as the "Elense city-state", further showing connections to the elves.
The main city-state is a part of the broader province of Elensefar, including the surrounding lands. Its Eastern border is the city Carcyn, a point sometimes disputed by Wesnoth. Along the north lies the Great River, while the south stretches to the Bay of Pearls. The Western end of the province is the shore of the Great Ocean. Though it often allies with Wesnoth (and is considered by many to be entirely subject to Weldyn), it is not always under complete control of the Wesnothian Crown. Indeed, on more than one occasion the diverse rulers of the city have taken pains to distance themselves from Weldyn, such as in 501 YW (under Lord Maddock), when Elenesfar directly announced itself an independent power from Wesnoth, being somewhat at odds with that great country.
