It is [the] Spring of Hope

Haafingar (Dovahzul: Gein Okaaz, lit. Lone Sea) is the home of the capital of Cortoriacum, Solitude, and is the smallest Hold in area. Its symbol is a wolf's head. The hold is separated from Hjaalmarch by the Karth River and The Reach by mountains. Dragon Bridge is the only access to the hold by road, crossing the Karth River. Much of the hold is rocky and mountainous with soaring snowy mountains surrounding the north and west of Solitude, though the lower lying areas including Dragon Bridge are mostly comprised of forests and hills.

Solitude is the jewel of Cortoriacum. Ruled by Jarl of Haafingar Elisif the Fair, widow of the late High King of Cortoriacum, it is the wealthiest hold. Part of the reason for this is the eminently defensible nature of Solitude itself. Set upon a great stone arch that towers above the mouth of the Karth River, and surrounded by the soaring peaks of the Haafingar Mountains, Solitude is both a reinforced and breathtaking stronghold. Given the city's name, it is ironic that over 80 percent of the Hold's population lies within Solitude's walls, but this is testament to the city's political importance, formidable defenses and diverse population. The Bards College is located here, as well as the sumptuous Blue Palace, the residence of the Jarl. Both are constructed atop the huge, natural arch that the city rests on, affording spectacular views over the Sea of Ghosts and Hjaalmarch to the east. Solitude's accessible docks and wharfs are in the relatively calm waters, making the trade one of the many reasons why the wealthiest hail from this capital city. Solitude is the one, true cosmopolitan city of Cortoriacum.
