The Principalities

Rather than border directly on the Paervlassid Empire, the Marches share a Southern border with another successor state of sorts, the Principalities. In the Marches, post-Imperial authority was pre-consolidated over existing polities with non-Imperial political legitimacy, while in the Principalities the political structure of the province collapsed without Saerd backing, and the area fell into chaos. No political order persists in the Principalities above the level of Barony, though many claim titles like Prince, King, Praetor, or even Emperor. Armies here top out in the low hundreds, and warfare is more or less perpetual, with a constantly shifting web of alliances, blocs, feuds, betrayals and marriages.
