The Zarosian Empire was a vast ancient empire that covered the territories of where Misthalin, Asgarnia, the Wilderness, and northern Morytania now stand. It was a predominant force during the Second and Third Age. After attempts by Saradomin and Zamorak to remove all traces of the empire after its fall, only buried ruins remain as evidence of its existence.
The empire was ruled by the god Zaros himself at the capital city of Senntisten which was located east of where Varrock stands today. Archaeological discoveries by the end of the Fifth Age spurred interest in Zarosian history and culture.
