The Old World - an old style map of the world probably hundreds of years old

I started this world-building/10 questions series , a semi-regular thing where i post 10 (technically 11 but it sounds better as 10) about certain topics in January 2021, but it wasn’t until the next post in early Feb of that year that I started the “10 questions” format officially. So, in honor of that (and because I have a LOT of work to do on the current project), I’m going to be reposting the early ones for a short while until i’m back on track with things. So todays is the re-run of the first – Settlements!

  1. What is the settlements name?
  2. When was it founded?
  3. Why was it founded?
  4. Who/What established it?
  5. Where is it located?
  6. What is the breakdown of the population?
  7. Where does the city obtain its resources?
  8. Are there any wards/subdivisions/boroughs and what are their names?
  9. What, if any, defences does the location have?
  10. What major events have occurred since the location was founded?

Bonus Question

What is a secret or fact known only to a few people about this place?
