History of Mondstadt

Mondstadt is a German-inspired region. The name Mondstadt itself is taken from the German "Mond" which means month and "Stadt" or city so that it has the name of the city of the month.

The name of the city of freedom that Mondstadt has is not without reason. The Mondstadt that players now know is not the old Monsstadt city.

The original city of Mondstadt was located in Stormterror's Lair as Decarabian City. Once upon a time there was a war between the Gods to gain territory which was called the Archon War.

The war between Andrius who wanted to take the Decarabian territory caused a very severe blizzard.

Decarabia who wanted to protect their people in the end made a wall made up of windstorms in hopes of protecting the people from the blizzards.

This caused Decarabian City to have closed access to the outside world and some people considered protection from Decarabia a form of tyranny.

The Gunnhildr clan made an expedition out of Decarabian City. However, they ended up having to survive the blizzard outside Decarabian City.

The people's prayer for freedom and prosperity was granted by the God of Time by sending the spirit of the wind that became Barbatos, Anemo Archon that players have known all this time. 

It was only after Barbatos, Gunnhildr, Amos (Decarabian's ex-lover), and the red-haired soldier who was allegedly Ragnvindr put up a fight against Decarabia died that the city of Mondstadt was now built.

Mondstadt's freedom was also disrupted due to tyranny by the Mondstadt nobility, especially the Lawrence clan. 

Barbatos, who was afraid of becoming a tyrant, left Mondstadt which caused an imbalance of power. 

Finally Barbatos formed the Four Winds to protect Mondstadt for pure freedom.

Although the name of this city, if interpreted, means City of the Moon. Not yet known with certainty the relationship between the name of this city and the moon. 

Considering that the moon is one of the important aspects in Genshin Impact games, such as the legend of Moon Sisters and the fake moon (false sky) in Teyvat, the city of Mondstadt is expected to be an important place in the main story. Genshin Impact.

There is speculation among players that Mondstadt will be the last region of the Genshin Impact game. This is because of Mondstadt's close relationship with Khaenri'ah as well Celestia.

Khaenri'ah was a region beyond Celestia and Heavenly Principle that was destroyed by cataclysm 500 years ago. 

This disaster is thought to be the main cause of the many changes that took place in Teyvat.

For example, Raiden Shogun blocked Inazuma's access and gathered Vision to maintain immortality due to Raiden Makoto's death in the destruction of Khaenriah.

Morax who lost his fellow Adepts especially Guizhong as a result of making sacrifices during the disaster.

Reason Tsaritsa, Cryo Archon, gathering all the other Gnosis Archons also presumably wished to resolve something that happened as a result of the cataclysm.

Allegedly the city of Mondstadt that stands today is right above Khaenriah. The most compelling evidence is that it exists Spirals Abyss what is thought to be the stairway to the Khaenri'ah is in the Mondstadt area.

In addition, the many signs and legacies that access to Celestia is in Mondstadt also cause Mondstadt to be suspected of being Traveler's last destination.
