The capitol would be Elgilad. That aside, I would say it's not within
its borders. Way back in time it would have been, but now the elvish
realm doesn't stretch that far to the east. You could say it lies in the
no-man's-land between elvish and dwarvish territory.

Certainly to no Elf, mainly because high-born Elves will tend to ignore
humans and their affairs completely.

I would imagine that elvish and human realms co-exist, often sharing the
same land. While the elvish magistration is higly sophisticated (with
the Council on top and various nobles taking care of the different
districts), the humans have a very heterogenous organisation. A
patchwork of smaller and larger kingdoms, sprinkled with 'free' cities,
etc. Some of them might be (losely) connected through marriage, etc.
while others would war against each other. Pretty chaotic.

Given the remote location of Erinsford, I would imagine that the
Wyvernesses were always pretty much on their own. Of course, I guess
Albrecht would like to gain more influence in more prospering regions
like the Elminscourt area.
