Archduchy of Glansdryl
The Archduchy of Glansdryl is an old fuedal nation that in the last 50 years has seen the economic upheavals of war, the start of industrialization, the rise of the middle class, and a ruling elite that has started to distance itself from the Gods. Nearly 100 years ago the ruling Archduchess Masolia, mother of the current Archduke Gassanyl, was forced to sign a Charter of Limiting Authority after the turmoil of the War of Rights, but the Archduchy remains a monarchy.
Four years ago the Archduchy went to war with the Kingdoms of Corstrail after years of border disputes and raids. This war has seen the mobilization of tens of thousands of troops on both side and a recent loss at the Battle of Ro-Tan Bridge brought reports that nearly 12,000 of the Archduke’s soldiers were casualties or captured.
With the war occupying so much of the military might of the Archduke, defending the other borders of the kingdom has fallen to local lords, counts, and the regional barons.
