Royaume des Morts
The Courts of Love
Matriarch Salianna has spent centuries grooming her vassals throughout France, building the Courts of Love from the emerging Frankish kingdom. Under her leadership, Frankish culture dominates Europe and Outreamer.
The Courts of Love are made up of many cities in western, central, and northern France and Belgium, and the kingdom is dominated by the Toreador. Cainites of the realm have taken advantage of mortal customs of chivalry and love, making etiquette a primary concern among those who wish to gain power. The kingdom is noted for its culture and emphasis on wealth and nobility, though it is not as strong militarily as it once was. For instance, the southern portion of Frankish lands became independent, and only a crusade could bring them back in line. The lands are still chaotic and outside the normal bonds of vassal and liege. This kingdom is firmly allied with both the Baronies of Avalon and the Fiefs of the Black Cross.
