Salianna has been active in court for centuries. During the chaos after the fall of Rome, she helped organize a coalition among the Cainite courts of Gaul. These courts eventually became the Courts of Love, and Salianna ascended to matriarch. As the martial prowess of the Frankish kingdom waned, Salianna saw to it to ally with nearby Ventrue lords: Mithras of the Baronies of Avalon and Hardestadt of the Fiefs of the Black Cross. The alliance centered on a Ventrue prince of Paris, crown jewel of the Frankish kingdom, and Alexander, an ancient from the time of Rome, was chosen to lead this city.
Alexander, however, had no taste for an alliance, and his stubbornness eventually forced Salianna and her allies to oust the prince from power early in the 13th century. A new, more easily controlled Ventrue, Geoffrey du Temple is now prince, but Salianna must work to ensure Alexander does not return to reclaim his throne. Such a move could destroy the Courts of Love and would certainly destroy her alliances with the Ventrue.
