The Kingdom of Lorraine is a client state of The Empire that borders Alcase to its west, Weerhousen to its south, Hogwarts to its east, and the Empire to its North. Once a large independant Kingdom called Alcase Lorraine the region grew fabulously rich during this time, and the future looked truly bright for Alcase Lorraine. it became greedy, and sold itself to The Empire. Any nationalist movements that come to exist are very quickly destroyed in this very strict Emperian society.

The Lorrainian king redistributed conquered wealth among his followers, both material wealth and the land including its indentured peasantry, though these powers were not absolute. "When he died his property was divided equally among his heirs as though it were private property: "the kingdom was a form of patrimony". The current House Beieberwoosen is a Teutonic House that was basically given the Kingship of Lorraine after the previous House Capet was believed to be conspiring to lead Lorraine away from The Empire and thus was removed from power in a coup.

The Kingdom of Lorraine contains a small Magi Order in the form of the Order of Maal of whom are centered out of Stockgarden where there Temple of Maal is a vast underground complex of which their scale and power is known by few, and entrance to the Temple of Maal is a very private and secretive act.

The Kingdom of Lorraine is largly Frankish in its population, but within its borders are a large number of different tribes of Germans including sizeable number of Teutonics. These Teutonics hold a disproportiant amount of power within the Kingdom of Lorraine due to the fact that they are basically supplied and supported by The Empire and this has led to them obtatining a number of high ranking positions throughout. The Tuetons have come in more and more numbers into the area, and have come to dominate specific areas such as the capital of Stockgarden, and the northern region of Metz, while basically everywhere else the Franks are the majority.

The Kingdom of Lorraine is religiously divided between several elements in the form of the worship of Dragonoph, Atlantian Pantheon, Cult of Sigmar and Christianity with no religion holding a majority and until the rise of House Beiberwoosen the religions were quite peaceful together.

The region of Lorraine was largely absent from the bloodbath that became the Downfall of the Numeron, but due to the massive withdrawl of soilders from the army the region became a sinder box for conflict between the different tribes.With the fall of the Empire of Numeron the regions Teutons found that there mastery of the region was about to be questioned. During the time of the Numenorians they were able to ofset the huge population differences by the excistence of the massive armies of the Numenorians but as the armies left so to did their wild card. With the Frankish now in charge of the region, they founded their first kingdom in the form of the Allemeni. The Allemeni was a vast kingdom that spread through much of central west Europe, and through this they dominated the region for many generations. Eventually the domination shown by the Frankish of Lorraine begin to enrage the Burgundians of Alcase, and the two sides became bitter towards eachother.

The region of Lorraine was largely absent from the bloodbath that became the Downfall of the Numeron, but due to the massive withdrawl of soilders from the army the region became a sinder box for conflict between the different tribes.With the fall of the Empire of Numeron the regions Teutons found that there mastery of the region was about to be questioned. During the time of the Numenorians they were able to ofset the huge population differences by the excistence of the massive armies of the Numenorians but as the armies left so to did their wild card. The Teutons were not oblivious to this though, and they found support financially from their cousins in the growing regions of Germany, who were even more imperialistic back then if that seems possible. With this financial backing the Teutons of the region attempted to heavily finance a fight between the two largest groups of the region in the Frankish, and the Burgundians. The Teutons once again attempted to side with the smaller of the two in the Burgundians, and this led to the extreme fighting between the two forces. The Burgundians even though they were smaller were able to use their financial and physical support from the Teutons to slowly push the Frankish westward out of the region, but this momentum would stall when the Teutons believing they had won commited several atrosicities against Burgundians, and this caused the Burgundians to begin to turn against the Teutons.

With the Teutons and the Burgundians now fighting amongst themselves the Frankish were able to regroup and organize, which led them to over the course of a generation to push the Burgundians and Teutons completely out of Lorraine. The Burgundians would continue to move west and dominate the regions of France, and Alcase, while the Teutons would simply migrate into the regions of the growing Germany.

Allemeni

The Allemeni Empire

Allemeni

With the Frankish now in charge of the region, they founded their first kingdom in the form of the Allemeni. The Allemeni was a vast kingdom that spread through much of central west Europe, and through this they dominated the region for many generations. Eventually the domination shown by the Frankish of Lorraine begin to enrage the Burgundians of Alcase, and the two sides became bitter towards eachother. As the two halves of the kingdom became farther and farther apart all it took was a single action to lead the kingdom to war.

Assasination of King Englend

The act that led to war would be the murder of King England who was a Frankish king that was heading to Alcase in order to attempt to sign pacts that would lead the two groups closer together. With his murder the Frankish were up in arms about the murderous behavior of the Burgundians, and when England II. came to power he attempted to subvert the rebellious movements amongst the Burgundians by massacring large numbers of them in reprisals. This had the effect of furthering the rebellions in the region, and as the brush war continued the Frankish found they couldn't even enter Alcase without nearly a full army, and thus begin the movement to the full civil war. Towards the end of the reign of Englend II's reign he grew close to the Emperor of The Empire at the time and thus the alliance between the two started to form.

Goverment

"When he died his property was divided equally among his heirs as though it were private property: "the kingdom was a form of patrimony". The current House Beieberwoosen is a Teutonic House that was basically given the Kingship of Lorraine after the previous House Capet was believed to be conspiring to lead Lorraine away from The Empire and thus was removed from power in a coup.

Monarchy

The King

The puppet king is from the House Beiberwoosen, and have ruled the client Kingdom since the Empire transplanted them in Lorraine almost 150 years ago. The Current King is a kind and wise man named Richard Beiberwoosen, of whom has become dominated by his failure to resist the Elector Count of Hannover in the form of Liam Odrell. Before becoming a puppet the King of Lorraine was seen as the god of the state as he was the communicater between the people and Sigmar in much the way that the Cult of Sigmar has supplemented this belief now. In its present form the King of Lorraine is most influencial in the creation, and destruction of Magnates of which even in this task will he have difficulty due to the mistrust the people have of the position.

Richard I of England

Richard Beiberwoosen is the current Client King of Lorraine, and Patriarch of House Beiberwoosen. He is very uncomfortable in this position and longs to return to the Empire. Richard has one sibling in the form of John Beiberwoosen of which his brother John leads the southern army of Lorraine centered out of the large city of Ramstein. Richard is married to Tanja Beibeerwoosen with whome he has two children with in the form of Justin, and Lauri Beiberwoosen of which Justin is the heir to the Kingdom of Lorraine, while his daughter Lauri is being prepared for an eventual marriage to a promising young noble.

Richard Beiberwoosen was born into the Emperian province of Hannover where he was a rich and influencial leader on the lower level of Hannover politics. He grew extremely close to Liam Odrell of whom he would assist when Hannover launched a coup against House Capet, and following the Coup it was Richard that was made the new king of Loraine. Richard Beiberwoosen wants desperatly for Lorraine to join the Empire completely or at the very least be allowed to return to his control over the small hamlet that he controlled before. A man with no experiance for such large scale lordship, has made very poor decisions that have stalled the growth of Lorraine, and forced The Emperor to become involved in appointing qualified commanders and administrators. So unskilled in leading a nation is Richard that during his reign the Kingdom of Alcase while being completely surrounded by enemies, and constantly invaded has grown to become nearly as powerful as the Kingdom of Lorraine. His failures are seen as acceptable by The Empire in the short term as they wish for Lorraine to fail so that the region can be more easily converted to their cause. The main success he has had is in his conversion of the land of Lorraine to the worship of Sigmar. He took a nearly completely pagan society and brought Sigmar to them which was a great feat on its own. On top of this his heavy racism towards non-Teutons has led him to cause the migration of large number of Vandals out of Lorraine, and this has caused Teutons to become a sizeable minority group. He places Teutons in basically all positions of power, and it is all but known that to rise you had better be a Teuton.

Magnates

House Beiberwoosen remains the Royal family of Lorraine but there exist still the second tier of command in the Kingdom in the form of the Counts. The kings appointed magnates to be comites (counts), charging them with defense, administration, and the judgment of disputes. This happened against the backdrop of a newly isolated Europe without its Roman systems of taxation and bureaucracy, the Franks having taken over administration as they gradually penetrated into the thoroughly Romanised west and south of Gaul. The counts had to provide armies, enlisting their milites and endowing them with land in return. These armies were subject to the king's call for military support. Annual national assemblies of the nobles and their armed retainers decided major policies of war making. The army also acclaimed new kings by raising them on its shields continuing an ancient practice that made the king leader of the warrior-band. Furthermore, the king was expected to support himself with the products of his private domain (royal demesne), which was called the fisc.

The Kingdom of Lorraine is heavily dominated by the Frankish as it has been since the days following the fall of the Empire of Numeron.
