The Border Wars are a series of conflicts between Ravka and its bordering nations, Shu Han and Fjerda that have supposedly been going on for over a hundred years.

Borders, territories, and alliances shift over time with various gains and losses. By the beginning of Shadow and Bone in particular, Ravka is in a vulnerable situation due to a combination of obsolete strategy and a failure to innovate, the Shadow Fold weakening the economy, and Ravka's enemies keen to take advantage. The conflicts have left many children orphaned and spouses widowed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There is some question about the legitimacy of these wars.
