Elven Duchies

The Elven Duchies are situated near the border of the Sands of Daud and the Slaughter Swamp, within Fitzleon. Trade is vibrant between it and the capitol city of Fitzleon, utilizing the Rusted Road. Before its destruction, the Duchies heavily relied upon trade with Morning on Crescent for various crops and exquisite wine. The Elven Duchies are considered part of the Fitzleon Empire, following the aftermath of the Draconic Revolution and Pax Draconic establishing the five main kingdoms. The elven leaders did not want to rule an entire country, and so decided to maintain a semblance of sovereignty, but are still under Fitzleon rule. The Duchies consist of many smaller city-states, clustered together. Each one is ruled by a Duke or Duchess (or both), and often combine or split due to arranged inter-marriage between ruling nobles of the city-states to increase their individual influence. (The nobles' network of intermarriages is quite complex, and difficult to follow for any of the shorter lived races.) Dulin's father, Elrick of Astley, serves on the Duchies' Ruling Council, and is one of the more influential figures. The Duchies have never had a King or Queen, since there is only one true King and Queen (the High King and Queen of the Feywild.)
