|First Appearance:||Chapter 7|
Midland is a monarchy under the influence of the Papacy and the setting for much of Golden Age Saga of Berserk. As its name implies, Midland is geographically central to the continent, having been established by Emperor Gaiseric, 1000 years ago. After the One Hundred Year War with Chuder, Midland enjoyed a brief hegemony among its rival nations. But since the Kushan invasion and the death of its King, Midland has begun to fade away.
Midland was originally selected as the site of the capitol of Emperor Gaiseric's continent-spanning empire. The royal family of Midland are said to be the only living descendants of Gaiseric, although their descent is indirect, via peripheral bloodlines.
