Chronicles of the Dawnblade
The Land of Lynnn is a feudal, traditional society where the peasants serve the knights in return for protection, while the knights are bound to militarily serve their lords in return for certain rights and titles. At the top of this feudal hierarchy is the Queen. Beneath the Queen the Dukes. Beneath them is another layer of nobility. The Queen, Dukes, Earls and Barons are also each the lord of a number of Knights, who are the lesser nobles.
Each Knight has his own force of Men-at-Arms chosen from the most physically-abled peasants. In return for serving his knightly lord, each peasant is given a small tract of land for his family and can be expected to be called upon for service in times of war.
The lands of Lynn are also ruled by their spiritual and mystical Queen Madeleine d’Artois. The great castle of the Queen is in the fortified city of Couronne, traditionally the capital.
