Tower and Tomb
After the Christians swept over the countryside, Navarre did not attract substantial attention from either the Ventrue or the Lasombra, both of whom were more concerned with affairs elsewhere, until well into the Reconquista across the peninsula. Consequently, Navarre became home to some other clans without a significant presence elsewhere in the peninsula. Chief among these were the Malkavians, thanks to the Madman Roque, who became Prince of Pamplona shortly after the Frankish conquest of 812. He quickly established a sizable domain within Navarre, one that has attracted others of his clan in the centuries since. The rugged terrain of the region also attracted the attention of the Nosferatu. By the year 1000 or so, these Cainites were particularly numerous thanks to the leadership of Ezkerra, a Basque patriot who claimed the countryside as his personal demesne.
