Hyboria by Sapiento Hyboria by Sapiento
My version of Robert E. Howard's Hyboria.

REH left no world map of his Hyborian Age, so many places are based on descriptions in his books or outright speculations.
I studied several existing maps [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] for this project, some are very different from each other. But I found also a few very similar maps, so I used mainly these for place names and positions, but changed a few things so that they fit - in my opinion - now better the descriptions. So the locations are a combination of existing positions and my own interpretation.
For the artistic part, however, I used my own style and approach; in this respect I can say the map has no resemblance to other existing Hyboria maps.

As great and detailed as this is, There's one minor mistake with it(not with the map itself, it's flawless and beautifully detailed). Howard did draw a map of the Hyborian age, it was a crude map that, if I'm not mistaken, he drew on a napkin, but he still drew it. You can find it in the Del Rey published series of three books that contained all the original Conan stories.
