The land of Magdala, with neighboring subject principalities in orange, corresponds roughly with the Magdalanate.

Magdala is the original name of what today constitutes the Magdalanate which is the core territory of the Empire of Magdala. Magdala is properly the historical land regardless of its government while the Magdalanate refers to the administrative territory under the imperial governorship. Magdala rests towards the eastern portion of the Pytharnian Highlands on the hilly lands between Lake Kasgo and Lake Thrundgally. Magdala is an ancient land and received its name in the early Middle Ages as it became the homeland of the College of Magdisuman Priestesses who have become part of the nucleus of the culture and government of the land. The name Magdala is sometimes used informally to refer to the Empire of Magdala.
