Ahn'kahet: The Old Kingdom (also referred to simply as Ahn'kahet or The Old Kingdom) is an instance located in the Dragonblight on the icy continent of Northrend. The huge underground city serves as home to remnants of the once magnificent Nerubian Empire. The entrance can be found in the Pit of Narjun at the end of a grand hall; from Kilix the Unraveler, go left and head downward.

Ahn'kahet is one of the sections of Azjol-Nerub, the others being the Inner Kingdom and the Upper Kingdom. The city is controlled by Undead nerubians and Yogg-Saron's faceless ones, with a presence of the Twilight's Hammer clan.

The Old Kingdom was represented in Warcraft III:The Frozen Throne by the Old Kingdom Door, which had at least part of the Inner Kingdom and the whole of the Upper Kingdom behind it. Anub'arak confirms that the Old Kingdom begins behind the gate, but where the Old Kingdom ends is up for debate. The quest to kill the Forgotten One implies that the Old Kingdom ends right after the creature, but the quest to escape Azjol-Nerub in the following mission implies that the collapsing section of Azjol-Nerub that the mission is set in is still the Old Kingdom.

Azjol-Nerub can be divided into two sections: the Old Kingdom and the Upper Kingdom.

The area known as the Old Kingdom is deep below the surface and is the original location of Azjol-Nerub. The nerubians preferred to stay well below surface level. This area has not been well maintained because the Scourge never descended this far. By the same token, that means they have not looted as much here, and it is also easier to avoid them by staying to these lower levels. Most of the nerubian rebels live down here.[1]

In the Upper Kingdom, undead nerubians patrol the ruins of their homeland, guarding clutches of eggs that will one day bring forth a new generation of Scourge warriors. Meanwhile, in the depths of the Old Kingdom, Ahn'kahet, another enemy stirs: the faceless ones. Little is known of these horrifying creatures, but rumor has it that they answer to an evil power lurking beneath Northrend. Destroying the undead nerubians and their tainted eggs will deal a great blow to the Lich King, but eliminating the mysterious faceless ones is also crucial to reclaiming the fallen empire.[2]

Dungeon Journal

Azjol-Nerub was an empire of great strength when the Lich King arrived in Northrend. Despite ferocious resistance, however, Scourge forces managed to overtake the subterranean kingdom and slaughter its inhabitants, the nerubians. Scarred by years of war and abandonment, this vast domain is now occupied on two fronts.
