Amador is the capital city of Amadicia. It is also where the Children of the Light have their main fortress. Even though Amador is part of Amadicia the king is not the true ruler of the city. It is one of the large cities in the Westlands that was neither built by Ogier nor founded on an Ogier-built city. It is currently under Seanchan rule.
Amador was founded after the Trolloc Wars.
"Amador" is derived from the Latin word for "lover" or "someone who loves".
