While there is a nascent middle class in Bretonnia, it lacks the strength and vibrancy of the Imperial burgher class. The noble houses control every facet of Bretonnian life and that includes trade. House Agnew, which is famous across the Old World for its wines and spirits, is a noble household whose accomplishments in trade have far eclipsed those of the battlefield. Wealthy and influential from their brisk trade in exporting fine wines from the Morceaux Valley, they helped fund Marienburg's secession from the Empire for their own economic advantage and (so they say) the defence of Bretonnia. While some noble families disparage the Agnews for engaging in such unknightly pursuits, House Agnew has become key to the economic prosperity of Bretonnia.[1a]
