House Trachtenberg

House Trachtenberg is a large Vandal House that is located within the Kingdom Of Lucerne, and making their home within their seat of Whitehaven Castle from where they have control over the province of Eastern Lucerne. House Trachtenberg is the vassal of House Lovie, and their relationship has become extremely close following the patriarch marrying a female Lovie and building their line from Lovie stock as well as their own stock, and from this point on they were handed the province of Eastern Lucerne. House Trachtenburg controls the province of Eastern Lucerne from their seat of Trachten Hold of which is the least populated of the Grand State of the Crownlands, but does have several powerful houses, and enough population that the Trachtenburgs can field some four thousand men at arms and three hundred Knights.

House Trachtenburg was given control of the province of Eastern Lucerne after the ending of House Targrove following the death of their last male heir due to sickness, and at the time the male leader of House Trachtenburg married one of the old Targrove's daughters thus giving logitimicy to the claim. House Trachtenberg would be led by Frank Trachtenberg when they joined the Invasion of Westbridge, and he and his small personal forces fought bravely alongside the king. House Trachtenburg became more wealthy following the expansion of their mining operations in the northern part of the mountains, and also the expansion of Brill increased the transporting goods that went between Brill, and Lucerne and the main route was through Eastern Lucerne.

The Seven Knights Rebellion of 5123

Main Article : The Seven Knights Rebellion of 5123

The Seven Knights Rebellion
It was those seven knights that showed me just how imperfect the Kingdom was. I had always understood to a certain degree that there was bad feelings among the people of our kingdom but seeing the support the seven got showed me the reality of this feeling. I had do do something. They were the final straw in showing me that.
Catherine Bell
Things are a foot in the land. Those who moved against Tree Hill are once again stirring. It is time we struck back.
Brandon Floren

The Seven Knights of Aerene would first be formed as an idea by James Nighting of whom as a member of the Circle of Magi wanted to assist his only family above all things and saw opportunity for his family to expand into the lands of Eastern Lucerne and specifically the lands of House Ongrill, and in this way he begin planning the idea of starting a banditry conflict in Eastern Lucerne to extend this plan. James Nighting would conspire with Circle of Magi operatives in the area to find individuals who they knew would work alongside them, and in this way they planned to have the leadership of the Seven Knights believe that they were doing this in order to end coruption and greed in the area, but while the leadership was doing this the Circle of Magi would commit attrocities in the area sparking the coming of the Kingdom of Lucerne and through this they hoped the land would be ravaged leaving it more open for invasion. As the Circle of Magi sent correspondence back to King Bill Lovie it would be Catherine Bell that would intercept one of these letters and discovered that the rebellion would be happening but also to her horror she discovered through reading the writing that Bill was not simply aware but was in fact orchestrating these movements.

In Castle Ongrill the Seven Knights of Aerene would send Robert Snow of whom as the bastard of the former heir to Castle Ongrill and House Ongrill was extremely bitter over his treatment following the death of his father Robert Ongrill at the Battle of Lyons. Robert Snow's desire to rise within the realm and his loyalty to the crown were manipulated against him by James Nighting of whom begin using the seals of House Clegane, House Morgill, and House Lovie to make Robert Snow believe that the crown wanted him to gather a force and take control of Castle Ongrill, and that once this was done to hold it no matter what happened and then wait for the arrival of more orders. At the time of the rise of the Seven Knights of Aerene it would be the wedding between Candice Anthor, and Morgon Ongrill that would lead to the Knights having there opening in the town, as having spent nearly three months and significant gold gathering to him nearly two hundred men at arms Robert Snow would begin infiltrating Castle Ongrill using the wedding as shield to his movements. Robert Snow would begin to have a relationship of sorts with Candice Anthor at this time as she was growing quite frustrated with her husband over his lack of physical time with her, and in this way Robert Snow was able to menipulate Candice Anthor into joining the Seven Knights of Aerene and using her only assisted him more.

The forces of House Clegane, and House Morgill would arrive at the outskirts of Castle Ongrill, and realizing that he had been betrayed Robert Snow would prepare the castle for a siege, but now realized that the letters he had been receiving all along had been a lie and he was now effectively a traitor to the realm.

At the start we were told we were fighting to take these lands from the corupt nobles who controlled them. I honestly believed we were doing good.
Brandon Floren

It would be Eddara Floren that would be within the walls of Brightwater when her brother and uncle took control of the town in the name of the Seven Knights of Aerene and she would be the only person who Brandon would admit to his involvement as the entire time the members of the knights of Aerene would wear masks covering their identity.

I don't care what the reason. I don't care right or wrong. Just or unjust. She was still my cousin.
