A Clash of Kings is based on the series of books by author George R. R Martin, "A Song of Ice and Fire" and the modification is named after the second book in the series, during which time the modification takes place.

The story behind the universe, that this modification is set in, is simply too rich and detailed for me to give even a brief overview here, but I can only recommend diving into it. If you want to know more, take a look at this:http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Timeline_of_major_eventsTHE FACTIONS
"A Clash of Kings" features eighteen unique factions, each with their own troops, distinct cultures and custom settlements, as well as a "secret" emerging faction.

Encompassing all of Westeros and the western part of Essos, the map for "A Clash of Kings" might well be the most detailed map ever made for a Mount and Blade: Warband modification. In future versions, the map will be replaced with an even better one, currently a work in progress. This will not happen for quite some time though.
