The Argent Crusade Historical Society is a group that was established following the end of the War against the Lich King. They are both civilian and military personel within the Crusade who work towards preserving the culture and history of Lordaeron.


The mission statement of the Argent Crusade Historical Society is the following:

"The Argent Crusade Historical Society for the Preservation of Lordaeronian History and Culture, works towards saving the culture and history of Lordaeron through the documentation, preservation and eventual reproduction of Lordaeronian historical texts, art, music, and other pieces of culture. The Society works so that Lordaeron's long and expansive history can be preserved so future generations can engage with their heritage, and learn about the land that the Crusade now works to retake, rebuild and heal."


The Crusade's Historical Society was founded during the Siege of Icecrown. As victory looked innevitable, those at home needed to prepare for the future of the Crusade and Lordaeron. To that end, Argent Historian Martin Anward suggested forming the Historical Society. Getting approval from the Crusade's High Command, Martin went forward with forming the society. Initially he brought together around fifty historians, these varied from presently serving Argents, to historians that had escaped the Scourging of Lordaeron and fled south to Stormwind. These fifty historians gathered in Hearthglen during the last month of the Siege of Icecrown and officially formed the society, creating it with the above mission statement.

As time went on, the society grew as archeologists, historians, political scientists, and more joined the rank to continue preserving the history of Lordaeron and publishing it into new works.
