Natanatan, the Granite Kingdom, was one of the Silver Kingdoms in south-eastern Roshar. It fell sometime after the Day of Recreance.

One of Dalinar's visions takes place in Natanatan, during the Eighth Epoch, three thirty-seven.

HistoryEdit

Natanatan was founded prior to or during the Heraldic Epochs, yet was one of the Epoch Kingdoms, organized by the Heralds for divine purposes.[1] During the years after the Day of Recreance, when the Knights Radiant abandoned mankind, a strong alliance emerged among the kingdoms of eastern Roshar: Natanatan, Alethkar (formerly Alethela), Jah Keved (formerly Valhav), and Kharbranth (once part of Thalath). United by religion, they were known as the Vorin kingdoms.[2] Presumably the strength of the Vorin alliance led to the rise of the Ardentia and the Hierocracy, and thus to the second major failure of Vorinism. The kingdom fell sometime after.

Though the kingdom had fallen centuries ago, the land that had once been Natanatan is still often referred to by its original name.[3] Natanatan used to occupy the south-eastern area of Roshar. Today, the area known as New Natanan is built on a peninsula on the coast of the Ocean of Origins. Southern Natanatan is part of an area known as the Frostlands, and northern Natanatan covers the southern ranges of the Unclaimed Hills, and the Shattered Plains, where the Alethi wage a war of vengeance against the Parshendi. The native Natanatans are not involved in this conflict.[4]

People and CultureEdit

Natan people had pale bluish skin, wide noses, and wool-like white hair.[5] They followed the Vorin religion. Their men wore gloves.

After the fall of Natanatan, Alethi expeditions into the lands encountered natives speaking an unfamilar language and had to use translators to communicate. They would exchange gifts of food for directions toward the hunting grounds of greatshells. [5] Unlike the distant past of which legends speak of where untamed highstorms ruled supreme,[6] today the land is mostly uninhabited, unexplored and comprised by desolate plains and overgrown forests.
