Oath of Crows
The Duchy of Linden encompasses most of the south side of the fertile Trent River Valley, plus the lands from the sea in the east and the Pennines in the west. It is overseen by the Duke of Linden, responsible for guarding the northern border of Logres. Duke Corneus wards the northern part of Logres from Saxons and the wicked King of Malahaut. He fosters a tribe of Saxons on his coast and holds many foreign lands. Both these give him wealth and power, but also had the mistrust of Uther and the other warlords.
Eastern Lindsey is deep forest currently ruled by Saxons; western Lindsey has more farmland and is still ruled by the Duke.
