Somewhere in the world, somewhere in the dark...
Sorry, I couldn't resist.

You claim that Viscount Kraeger - a former friend and compatriot of yours - did not act of his own will in this uprising, but was held under the magical influence of the necromancers. Be that as it may, he has been seen by the people of our lands to raise arms against the Empire. Such an act cannot go unpunished. You may rejoice however, for the Emperor has chosen to grant you all lands and titles that Kraeger possessed, in return for your great service and obedience.
Such is the price of loyalty.
I'm pretty sure that he was executed for his "crimes".

"Same" person like in H2 or H3 - unnamed general. And I don't think that we ever will knows their names.

I'm pretty sure that no, Padish wasn't in "lore" at that days. Besides IIRC he was overthrowed by rebels 12 years after Silence and first necromacer showed many years after Silence.

Maybe Protection from Water spell?

I agree... but on the other hand:
Harondale - Harmondale and Herondale's lost shield (MM8)
Ethania - Erathia
Lord Alberon and his kingdom raided by pirates - lord Alber
and Mist raided by Regnans
