After many peaceful and joyous years of rule, King Sonilus fell ill, and knew that his time was near. He called upon his eldest daughter Kulambria, expressed his love for her, and designated her to rule the kingdom of Nolava in his stead. Since Queen Melodia had forfeited her immortality to marry the king, her life was linked to his, and they would pass together in the same instant.
After King Sonilus and Queen Melodia had exhaled their final breath, the entire kingdom mourned for 40 days and 40 nights. The greatest bards in the land were assembled and constructed the ballad that would play throughout the kingdom without ceasing until the 40th night had passed. It is said that the soundwaves from this song carried the bodies of the King and Queen across the land and out to the sea.
