Oath of Crows
King Uther Pendragon
The third son of Constantine, King of Logres
“Never before had the realm such rest and peace as in the days of Uther the king.” -Roman de Brut, Wace¨
King Uther is the prototypical feudal monarch. He doesn’t model himself after any ideal — he is making the ideal for others to follow. He is a warrior-king, but a warrior first. He orders his troops into battle, and leads from the front. In non-warlike matters he listens to his favorites and courtiers, and delegates everything he doesn’t enjoy to his trusted companions. He often makes snap judgments, followed by commands to see that his will is carried out quickly.
King Uther is an absolute king. He sits atop the pyramid of society, admired by his lords, approved (reluctantly) by the clergy, and acclaimed by the commoners. Britain is his personal possession.Uther, king of warlords, has unique privileges of duty, command, and obedience. He alone is at the top, the peak, the pinnacle of all men. The time of his reign is difficult and beset with troubles within and without. Some would take advantage of the situation and increase their fortunes while the less fortunate find themselves diminished. As warriors and lords solidify their hold on the land, the power of the elite grows at the expense of others.
