The Duchy of Silchester is probably the most powerfull part of Logres. It is a prosperous Romanized land with a strong army. It has a lot of influence over its former vassal, the County of Hantonne. It is ruled by Duke Ulfius, one of the few survivors of the Infamous Feast.

Duke Ulfius is known to have MANY children, and some of them are even known to be legitimate. His eldest son Uffo, is an arrogant and spoiled young boy. The former marschal of Logres commands a large army of loyal and skilled knights and military commanders. But the Duke is a man usually focused on defense, but had he gone on the offensive few would be able to stand against him. Or so he says.
