The Firewood Kingdom (ファイヤーウッド王国) is a location from the Golden Axe series.
Firewood was a peaceful kingdom that lasted over 600 years, until it was destroyed by Death Adder. Tyris Flare was the daughter of the king and queen of the kingdom. Although the kingdom was uneasy with Death Adder's army being close to their border, the whole country was celebrating the birthday of Princess Tyris. While their guard was down, Death Adder and his army attacked the castle, destroying the kingdom in one day.
Only three people in the whole kingdom survived: Tyris Flare, who the queen had hidden from Death Adder's forces, Gilius Thunderhead, who was knocked uncounscious during battle and was protected by his brother, and Ax Battler, who was out hunting when his village was attacked.
