This question has been bothering me for quite some time. Sylvania was apparently independent from Stirland before the great Battle of Helfen. This can be shown by the seemingly autonomous nature of the Von Drak rule in the region and the fact that after Helfen, the Elector Count of Stirling claimed sovereignty over the area, implying that he did not have it before. Now it was certainly not one of the original provinces because there was never a Sylvanian Runefang. The only provinces that have disapeared since the founding of the Empire were Solland and Drakwald (or something of that nature). So what was the political nature of Sylvania before the arrival of the vampire counts? Is it just an inconsistency?

I don't know, there's really nothing about the lands until Vlad appears; I'd say GW just couldn't be bothered to go that far. Maybe it was part of one of the larger states but due to its nature the claiments decided it was otherwise best to leave it be.
Im not sure either, maby it wasnt acctualy part of the empire untill then?? or maby it was Dived between its 2 flanking Counts??? not sure, i guess GW made a mistake there.

In VampireSLayer (the gotrekÂ´s novel) it is said that Silvania in fact is divided up between low range nobles, each one have a little part but there is an aliance to defend each other.

Read this article:
It is very interesting, and details the history of Sylvania from before Sigmar. I'm not sure if it is official stuff, but its still a good read.
