The Empire of Brasingia is the dominant human polity in Dalriya, occupying a central position in the continent and controlling most of the Great Road. It is made up of seven duchies: Kelland, Rotelegen, Luderia, Atrabia, Gotbeck, Thesse and Barissia. Each has their own ruler, styled duke, except for Gotbeck which is ruled by an archbishop, and Atrabia, ruled by a prince. When the imperial throne becomes vacant, the seven dukes elect the successor from amongst their number.
The Brasingians won independence from the Persaleian Empire and some twenty years later four of the duchies united, electing Manfred the Great, Duke of Kelland, as the first emperor. Luderia joined soon afterwards and Gotbeck & Atrabia were incorporated more recently. Baldwin, Manfred’s great grandson, is the fourth emperor of Brasingia.
