The Kingdom of Weerhousen is a large Human/Vampire Kingdom that lies in the region above the mountains of Lucerne, and south of the Kingdoms of Alcase, and Lorraine. The Kingdom is ruled by Queen Neferata, and her commanders in the form of the Vampire Lords, who are in the position of Dukes of her cities and control their specific areas of Weerhousen however they see fit. Unknown to the rest of Europe, the Queen and her Dukes, along with many loyal to the Royalty are in fact Vampires, and this is a secret that is kept through the brutality of the state againsts its people and to betray the secret would be to encite instant death on everyone you knew.

The White Flower is the Emblem on most of the flags, banners, and herledry that exists inside the Kingdom of Weerhousen, and this is due to the fact tha the White Flower was an ancient and important flower of Lahmia, and signals the hope of their original founding of the land to rebuild Lahmia eliminating all that was wrong and only leaving the good.

The Kingdom of Weerhousen is a Vampire Kingdom ruled with absolute power by Queen Neferata . Queen Neferata holds every inch of power, but because she grows bored, and wished to reward her Dukes, she gave over rulership of the main towns of Weerhousen to her Dukes. As time has gone on a position within the top echolon of power has opened in the mistress of Weerhousen which was created by Queen Neferata's sister Katia Beckinlate in order to give herself more power, and wealth. Through this positon she is growing to be as powerful as Queen Neferata, and the Queen is too busy with her own affairs that she doesn't care enough to curtail this action. Each of these towns reflects the ownership of its Duke, and overall bloodline, so while some areas like Strigi are ruled fairly and kindly, others like the township of W'Soran are nightmarish places of constant fear and death.

Officially the Kingdom of Weerhousen is dominated by the Temple of Vampyr which is the Vampiric religion founded by Angelica Neferata which preaches that Vampires are the progenitors of the human race, and thus allows for the humans serving them to have a reason for their terrible existence. There is one off-shoot to the official religion in the Church of Lilith of which is a Vampire religion practiced by the Sanguin, and Strigi Bloodlines, and while on the surface is of the Vampyr religion it is under the surface a Christian based religion.

Weerhousen is first analyzed from the point of view of Meghanna when she is speaking to William Lovie III. and during this she explains the current state of Weerhousen. Weerhousen would be further centered in the story Blood Lillies where in the entire story of Blood Lillies is about the rise of the Vampires, and their expansion into the Kingdom of Weerhousen.

Weerhousen begin during the darkness that followed the destruction of Lahmia, and was born from the ashes of numerous failed Vampire attempts to gain control, and finally realizing that Angelica Neferata was close to watching the end of her relationship with Stefon Vashenesh she would push for the complete conquering of Weerhousen. With Lahmia's destruction the Vampiric rulers of Lahmia fled the land and went north where they travelled for some time throughout Croatia until finally they reached Weerhousen and stopped to found what would become the Kingdom of Weerhousen. The Vampire Court managed to defeat the humans using different tactics across Weerhousen of which all resulted in their ultimate defeat, but this led to the next stage of their fight when they were forced to fight against the forces of the Trolloc of whom rampaged into Weerhousen sensing there time for conquest was now. After engaging and defeating the massive Trolloc forces of the region the Kingdom of Weerhousen would be the only true power in their region and thus for the first time in a very long time the Lahmians were able to just do whatever they want to do, and no longer had to keep one eye constantly watching behind them. Following the defeat of the Trollocs peace would end when certain more violent elements of the Vampire Court begin instigating a fight with the forces of the Kingdom of Alcase, and not realizing the true scope of Alcase this war would end any ambition of the Vampire Court to expand northward leading to their first truly disasterous defeat since their arrival in Weerhousen.

Geography

The Kingdom of Weerhousen is housed within the area between the Bhrine river, and the Lucerne mountains. The south section of the KIngdom is cold due to its proximity to the mountains of Lucerne, but the northern sections are located closer to the more habitable regions of the Bhrine River meaning a more generous tempurature.

Political Geography

Kingdom of Weerhousen Internal Politics
To the east of Weerhousen lies the region of Trannian, which is most known for the mercantilism that is a common fixture amongst the cities there. Also east is the begginings of the large region of Westros with basically only Westbridge and Dresdan of any real importance to them.

To the west of Weerhousen lies the vast province of France, of which the only feasable way to reach France is through the Wetrian mountains where there are a series of small donkey trails which can be travelled by those who know the method of traversing them.

The entire south of Weerhousen is covered by the massive Mountain of Lucerne of which the northern edges are covered with forests which are filled with very high populations of Trolloc.

To the north is the region of Alcase-Lorraine which contains the Kingdom of Alcase, as well as having a small border with the Kingdom of Lorraine.

History

As shocking as their current state is, at one point Weerhousen (or Lahmia as it was known then) was a very honorable Kingdom. Ruled by the kind and generous Queen Neferata its people were in love with their lot in life. This all came to an abrubt end when Queen Neferata was offered a sip from the Eternal Drink. After taking this she eventually was menipulated into capturing and killing Jesus which led to the massive Nehekhara Empire invading and destroying the Lahmian civilization.

Did you think there would never be any consequences. It was always coming for you sister. This moment was always coming. The only thing I regret is that it took me this long to finally do what I should have done centuries ago.

The true start of the Weerhousen Civil War would begin with the return of Davina Denn who would return home alongside her knight guardian Hanzal of House Strom to Ravensburg. Davina Denn had spent years in the Kingdom of Gilneas as a lady in waiting and while there she meets with the King and he reveals that things are changing in Ravensburg as the agents he has sent into Weerhousen are having success in growing the rebellious movement and that soon he will send her back to Ravensburg to pave the way for the eventual Gilneas invasion of Weerhousen. Weeks following this she receives a letter from her brother stating that things are changing rapidly in Ravensburg and she must return home immediately of which she listens to immediately travelling by boat from Gilneas back to Ravensburg. Arriving back at Ravensburg where she is greeted at the gates of the city by several councilors of the city but no members of her family, but among the group is several Vampires of which when she sees them she is attracted to one of the group in the form of Fadil Heretee but clutches her necklace of Glaurung and follows the human Councillors to Ravens Castle. Moving towards the castle she is approached by one of the vampires of whom reveals herself to be Anai Heretee the wife of Fadil Heretee and tells Davina that when she is done seeing her family and meeting with her Councillors the three vampires require a meeting as well, and they do not wish to be waiting long. After a long confrontation with the three vampires Fadil reveals to her that a sickness has wracked the city killing many including several in her family, and without another word she storms off eventually running to the keep of her family. Arriving at the keep she is met by her uncle Marcel and her cousin Marcel of whom try to slow her but she continues running throughout the keep going off instinct and eventually reaching her fathers room where she finds her mother sitting on a chair overlooking her father of whom looks as pale as a ghost. Overcome with emotions she ignores the advise of her uncle and heeds the words of Ser Vincent Lephane, and the councillers and commands the raising of the army of Ravensburg in order to find the vampires in their midst and lock them away until she can make her decision on them. Following the imprisonment of Fadil, Anai, and Circe she would ignore the cries of her brother to stop what she was doing, and looking to the sky she realized that it was high noon and with the sun out at its near peak she would command the entire town to the streets with their hands out to show they were not wearing the day ring, and after finding several Vampires among the townfolk she imprisoned them as well before command the city guard go house to house leading to the capture of two more Vampires of whom she imprisoned all within the dungeons of Ravensburg. Davina Denn finishes writing a letter to her former family in the Kingdom of Gilneas detailing the changes in Weerhousen and that the time has come to intervene, and then following this her uncle knocks on the door and the two speak for some time about the happenings. Alongside her uncle she travels with her guards to visit Fadil, Circe, and Anai in the dungeons beneath the castle where she has a long conversation with them. While talking to them she is told by her guards of the arrival of several Vampires into Ravensburg in the form of Publius Tiferis, Zalika Merneith, Turgut Nur, and Lena Rehner of whom are in the city to reinforce Fadil's original party and Davina lies to Publius there leader about Fadil never arriving and this begins a confrontation when Lena doesn't believe the story and only the quick talking of Davina stops bloodshed, and seeing they are horribly outnumbered the three Vampires leave the city threatening to return with a larger group and wipe out Ravensburg. Before leaving Lena Rehner reveals that she was the one responsible for the murder of Davina's parents and overwhelmed with rage over this Davina pulls her wand out and fires a killing spell at Lena but Lena blocks the spell with her sword striking Zalika Merneith directly killing her instantly and causing the rest of the vampires to flee leaving behind Lena of whom tries to flee as well but Davina strikes her with a second spell leaving her unable to move. Following her conversation with Fadil she makes the decision to heed his words and hands the regency to her uncle while she travels by horse with a company of a hundred knights and men at arms towards the lands of the Strigi.

Each Duke is responsible for one of the major cities in Weerhousen. This policy has led to an extreme divergance in the way each city appears in the kingdom. Whether it is the harsh warrior culture of the Blood Dragons city of Krieger, or the nightmare city of Ushoran where the citizens are taken from the street and used in experiments.
