Why would you want to modify the realm ID?

The realm ID is the wiki's link to the game data. So long as the correct ID has been used, it should automatically gather all the relevant data for the realm.

You need to add the correct semantic tag to the region which is your capital. The wiki will then be able to automatically find it and use it where appropriate. I believe the correct tag is [[capital of::Fallangard]].

The problem here the realm is listed as lost, and the region is listed as belonging to Caligus. If this is not the case I can update the wiki but like I said, I don't play on the continent so I know nothing about its current state.

Fallangard owns Hamadan, and the realm page looks right now. The realm name was recycled from a previous realm of the same name from long ago.

That is because Sir Dreslin has hard coded that info now, though looking at the infobox used, I think it is the old one where that was the only way to update it anyway. Should the wiki now have two pages? One for the lost realm and one for the re-founded?

There should be a page for both versions of the realm. I think that the policy was to move the old realm page to something like Fallangard/Old or something like that.

As the current page seems to mostly deal with the current realm, I shall remove it from the Lost Category. I will look at the page history and see if a suitable old edit can be used for the lost realm page, and I have updated the page of Hamadan to have the correct semantic tag and remove the Caligus region box.

Much obliged
I learned today that Fallangard were two things, a defunct kingdom and  the current (resurrected maybe)
I started playing yesterday and as a way to contribute, wanted to upgrade a little according to current information the wiki of the kingdom that support, and I heard the story sniffing around

i changed and updated the info using another official infobox
Thank you very much :)
