Does anyone know if anything has ever been written on Arancia kingdom?

From my understanding, only the very brief stuff in the Theran Empire book - in the Talea chapter. As it is not one of the conquered Theran provinces it only gets very little detail, couple of paragraphs...

I suppose it's a start...

From Theran Empire;
'Arcancia is a large kingdom to the west of Talea, across the Selestrean Sea. It resembles Talea in many ways; it has its own dukes and signori, and some of its people venerate Prima as their Talean neighbours do. Others pay homage to the wilder Passions of Arancia's deep forests. Arancia is not yet an Imperial province, but Theran business interests are as influential in its cities as they are in Talea. The King of Arancia; Ellieux IV, maintains an uneasy alliance with Thera.
Overgoverner Bewdew oversees this alliance, and has diplomats permanently stationed in Ellieux's court.
Ellieux IV is a hearty, back-slapping dwarf who prefers the company of common huntsmen and soldiers to his well bred family members or Arancia's propriety-obsessed dukes. Despite his bluff, egalitarian manner, he is every bit as given to intrigue as any Talean king in his dealings with Talea's dukes and the pomp ate'
So not much, apart from comparisons to Talea and some information on King Ellieux IV.
The only other source of information on Arancia comes from the Makers of Legend: Wanderer's Way for Earthdawn 2nd edition and the Arcancian Discipline of Montebanc that is detailed within.
The only pieces of information mentioned about Arancia specifically are that there are no Troll Moots in Arancia, and that it is not uncommon for Trolls to be Montebancs and Thieves (this is before 4th edition making Discipline racial restrictions an option) and it mentions that the Montebanc character was scarred by a knight in service to a minor lord.
To my knowledge, this is the only reference to a knight in all of Earthdawn.
