The fourteen Dukedoms of Bretonnia.

Bretonnian Dukes are the highest ranking nobles within Bretonnian society, second only to the Royarch himself.

History

In the long distant past, the lands of the Bretonni were secured by Gilles le Breton, and the Kingdom of Bretonnia was formed. Each of the Bretonni lords, the mighty Grail Companions, swore oaths of fealty to Gilles, who they proclaimed as their ruler. The lords themselves were each given the title of Duke, and the traditional borders of their lands were formalised, creating the fourteen dukedoms. Gilles became the Royarch of all Bretonnia, though he also fulfilled the role of Duke of Bastonne.[1]

A Duke of Bretonnia has royal power within his dukedom, but he is still subject to the King. This means that a Duke acting within his own dukedom cannot break the law, unless he disobeys a direct order from the King himself. The Dukes are also each a Bretonnian Lord, powerful and renowned warriors, for they could not retain their station were they not.[1][2]
