King Terenas Menethil II
Terenas Menethil II was born in court of the Kingdom of Lordaeron, one of the strongest human nations, as member of the royal Menethil family which had ruled the kingdom for generations. Terenas grew up to become a wise and just ruler, who was greatly loved by his people and was an old friend of Thoras Trollbane . His long years of reign saw peace and brought prosperity for Lordaeron, but all this changed with the outset of the Second War.
After the First War, refugees from the Kingdom of Stormwind arrived on the shores of Lordaeron, giving warnings of the orcs and the invasion that was to come. Terenas called delegates from neighboring nations, and, after hearing the horror stories from Lord Anduin Lothar and his people, they agreed to forge the Alliance of Lordaeron.
Terenas led the forces of Lordaeron in valiant battle against the onslaught of Horde. The Second War was taxing upon the Alliance and all in it. In the end, their sacrifices were not in vain, and the Alliance won through, decimating the Horde and rounding up the surviving orcs into internment camps. The orc Warchief Ogrim Doomhammer was kept as the personal prisoner of Terenas.
