Leonster (レンスター Lenster in the Japanese version) is one of the four kingdoms of the Manster District, along with Manster, Alster, and Conote, as well as one of the five castles of the Manster District. It is also where the descendants of the Crusader Noba reside.
Its Lance Ritter brigade, dubbed the "Wall of Leonster", is where most of the Manster District's military strength comes from, and it is thanks to it that the Manster District has resisted Thracia's consecutive invasions. However, after the Yied Massacre, half of Leonster's lance knight brigade is decimated, Prince Quan and his wife Ethlyn are killed, and the Gáe Bolg is lost, so Thracia is able to successfully conquer the Manster District following the Battle of River Thracia, and perhaps as a symbolic measure, Thracia burns Leonster Castle.
Soon afterward, the Kingdom of Grannvale (soon to be the Grannvale Empire) invades the Manster District, and forces the conquering Thracians into a peace treaty, in which Grannvale annexes the Manster District, including Leonster Castle, and the country is renamed the Northern Kingdom of Thracia, with Duke Bloom of Freege installed as its King.
Prince Leif eventually manages to free Leonster Castle from the grip of the empire, but King Bloom, who is in Alster Castle, resists Leif's attempts to oust him, and most of Leif's fighting force is decimated, thus Leif has to hold out in Leonster Castle until Seliph's army is able to attack Alster Castle.
After Seliph's army defeats the Grannvale Empire, Leonster is made the capital of the New Kingdom of Thracia, under the new King Leif.
