  1. Ladies and Gentlemen, The Lady Sigrdrífa the Priestess, Yfirstormarksgythia and High Priestess of the Thingeyri Temple, has created a coat of arms of the Kingdom of Eesdeheito. The coat of arms features a winged snow leopard on a blue shield. The blue is colour associated with the Storish Monarchy and the snow leopard was to the Tatars of old a deity of fertility and the patron of children. On the left side of the snow leopard there is a round gold shield to portray the legal, economic, and military security of the country. A white aster with an even number of petals symbolises purity, an eternal source of life, and the desire for longevity. The raised right forepaw of the snow leopard is a traditional heraldic gesture underlining the greatness of the supreme authority. The sharp teeth and claws of the snow leopard demonstrate his ability to defend himself. The wings of the snow leopard contain seven feathers to symbolise the influence of the snow leopard's patronising force, both on the earth and beyond the stratospheres. The position of the snow leopard's tail indicates his good mood and friendliness. The crown is the crown of King Johanns I, the founder of Cranda.
  2. Les Jumeaux

    Lady Aoife, Château la Bongourse at present serves as accomodation for guests of the Ducal Government of Normandie.
  3. Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur The Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur is a castle which is situated on the posh island in the sacred river called Fulltrui Flow which is known since time immemorial as Embassy Isle. It is named after the patron saint of the Empire of the Alexandrians and since quite recently houses the Imperial Alexandrian Embassy. Very ironically the Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur was built by the famous Storish Lady Architect Lady Ingibjörg de Béthune of the House of Ydermure for the Alexandrian Count Benedict Carvajal who is the late father of Henry Carvajal, the current Henryist pretender to the Alexandrian Throne. Count Benedict had it built as his pied à terre in the Imperial City of Haraldsborg, the capital of the Lands of the Longships Throne. Shortly after the failed Henryist coup attempt - viscious terrorist attacks which led to a bloodbath in in the Alexandrian cities of Geneva, Markion and Wesloderia - the Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur was seized as a terrorist asset by the Imperial Storish Government. The castle's keep also holds a number of Henryist prisoners who are currently being interrogated and who will subsequently be dispatched to Old Gaol Isle, Stormark's prison island. Following its confiscation by the Imperial Conference at the Vanadísarhall the Palais de Saint Louis le Protecteur was handed to the Imperial Government of Alexandria by the aforementioned Storish Ruling Council. The latter subsequently designated the aforesaid castle its embassy in the High Realm of Stormark.
  4. Haute Cour de Normandie The Haute Cour de Normandie is since ancient times the legislature of the Duchy of Normandie. The aforesaid legislature only sits once a year for a period of not exceeding three months, unless granted an extension by or convened for an extraordinary session by the Jarl of Normandie or the High King of Stormark in His capacity of Duke of Normandie. It traditionally meets in the age-old fortification which is known as Les Jumeaux which is situated just outside the Royal City of Quimper, the capital of the Twin Peninsula Jarldom. This legislative body is alsmost as old as the Duchy of Normandie itself. It was established by the Leopard Brothers in the early days of zir reign as as Counts of Quercy as the Þing of the island they held as fief from the King of Franciana. Hailing from Valtia, Horik and Hyngwar Rognvaldsson found it weird that the Isle of Quercy did not have a Þing or similar institution, so shortly after the War of the Hands of Hallvarður had ended, they called the first assembly in the isle's history. This first Norman Þing was not a deliberative body, and had only an advisory function and confirmation of the count(s), especially in taxation, economics and wars. Members were initially chosen from the more powerful nobles. In subsequent times members of the clergy, and representatives of the towns, peasantry and non-noble knights were added to its ranks. After the collapse of the Kingdom of Franciana the Haute Cour de Normandie assumed its current name. Over time the assembly grew in power and prestige. Especially during Normandie's days as an autonomous colony of Valtia its powers were greatly expanded by various Charters issued by the Chieftains of Valtia who saw the Haute Cour as a check on, and a counter-balance to, the also growing power of the Dukes of Normandie. Nowadays the Haute Cour de Normandie is composed of: the comtes of the comtés of the Duchy of Normandie, who are the governors of the Traditional Districts of the Twin Peninsula Jarldom; prominent Knights of Normandie, including the semi-finalists of the latest edition of the Grand Tournoi du Camp du Drap d'Or; ranking members of the foremost Noble Houses of the Knightly Jarldom; representatives selected by the populations of the Traditional Districts of Normandie; senior clergy of the Église de Normandie and the Église Vanille. The legislature is known for its splendor and pomp and circumstance, which attracts even several members of the Imperial House of Ettlingar Freyu who are most willing to take part in its ceremonies like its State Opening and State Closure, but is also known for its unruliness and gridlock. This is one of the reasons why the Dukes of Normandie have always held onto their power of decree.
