The royal emblem of Wintershold.

Wintershold, formerly known as the Castle of Wintershold, now known as Mochold is a town as well as a royal dynasty encompassing the mountainous peaks of Pingualuit National Park in Northern Canada. Wintershold is today a part of the new nation of Acadia, and formerly a part of Nunavik and Coats (Aurora). Wintershold borders in the west to the town of Königsberg. Wintershold was established in October of 2022 by Agraem, followed shortly after by Jamzery, later claiming the position as Treasurer. Founded upon what is believed to be one of the highest elevated peaks of Aurora, Wintershold as of early December, consist only of the citadel, towers and subsequent halls and chambers, a part of the castle grounds. Plans for the urbanization of Wintershold are underway but has not yet been conceptualized. Wintershold is connected by a underground ice-highway link, connecting the town of Konigsberg, New Amsterdam and Scalford.

The town was sold in March 2023 when its owner Agraem moved to create the shortly-lived town of New Venice south of Detroit.

The Citadel consists currently of the Citadel Tower, the Castle West Wing, Castle East Wing, Citadel Hall, Castle Garden, Council's Chambers and the Council Room.
