Which of them is the present-day King of Ishterebinth?

If you carefully go through the first trilogy, there's a couple references to the Nonmen of Ishterebinth being ruled by Nin'Cilijiras. From what I remember, we know nothing about him other than this - Aurang makes a comment to the effect that Ishterebinth is monitored and that Nin'Cilijiras can't take a dump without the Consult knowing about it.

In the second trilogy, he's not mentioned at all, and the Nonman messengers claim they're speaking for Nil'Giccas. Of course, there might have been a regime change in Ishterebinth, since Nil'Giccas turns out to be "Cleric" who's been in exile for god knows how long. But the Nonmen imply he's still the king, with no mention of the other guy.

Did the Nonmen lie? Or is this just a continuity error? 

Inquiring minds want to know.

You'll have to explore Ishterebinth to find out, I fear!
