History

Brythunia is one the Hyborian kingdoms, though not a really unified one. A single monarch maintains nominal authority over a large number of autonomous cities and noble domains. The nobility in fact prides itself in being able to restrict royal authority. [1] Bruthunians have long tried to establish their country as a regional power, but their lack of unity leaves them overshadowed by the better-organized Aquilonia and Nemedia. [1]

For some reason, the Bruthunians are frequent subjects of Hyborian jokes. Their men have been stereotyped as "thickwitted oafs". On the other hand, their women have a reputation for beauty and sensuality. The women are prized items for slave traders, since this reputation ensures that there are always customers willing to pay high prices for them. [1]

Badly wounded from a sword-toothed leopard's attack in the snow-clogged mountain pass to Zamora, Conan was cured and healed by Ahirn and his family, in their humble abode at the foot of the Brythunian mountains. The Cimmerian spent some time helping the farmers, until they were all killed by a band of Zamoran slavers. After killing the slavers, Conan continued on into Zamora[2].
He tried once again to navigate the difficult mountain pass between Brythunia and Zamora, but was pushed back by a flash flood of melted snow. Conan then met Skalla, a Chooser of the Slain who wished to stay among the mortals, but eventually returned to Father Borri, the Grey God. After she left, the Cimmerian tried to climb the pass for the third time[3].
