Dai Shan is a title from lost Malkier and known throughout the Borderlands.

In the Old Tongue, "dai shan" means "battle lord." In the Borderlands, Lan Mandragoran is often called Dai Shan.[1] Lord Agelmar Jagad explains that when Lan was a baby, his parents anointed his head with oil and named him Dai Shan, a Diademed Battle Lord.[2] It is not known if all kings of Malkier are named Dai Shan.
