The Line of John and Vespira

<-------------><-------------><------------->

 

A Princess of the Holy Orenian Empire, and sister to Emperor Peter III, her marriage to John has been both lengthy and tumultuous. An unlikely union that brings the imperial lines of Joseph of Marna and Antonius I together. Despite often not agreeing, their undying love for their children drives them to create a united front, and a safer world for their future generations.

Well tempered and jovial. A capable warrior, and heir to Selm.

<-------------><-------------><------------->

The Duchy of Sunholdt

<-------------><-------------><------------->

 

A titular title gifted to John d’Arkent by the Emperor Peter III for his undying service and lengthy tenures to the Empire. It has little historical significance besides the name being barely mentioned in Courlandic titles in some historical records.

 

<-------------><-------------><------------->

The Barony of Selm

<-------------><-------------><------------->

 

A landed title, created for and given to John d’Arkent by the Emperor Alexander I during John’s tenure as Archchancellor. It rests on the riverbanks of the River Ari, just across the river from the walls of Helena. 

 

It boasts Selm Palace, designed by Daniel Louis d’Arkent with assistance from his sister, Mary Philippa, and nominal assistance from the rest of the family. Selm also boasts expansive gardens, artwork, facilities,and is very much one of the finest pieces of architecture in recent memory.

The House Words, “queti tempus,” translated to “no time to rest,” were chosen by John d’Arkent in his youth. Ironically, the flexio words can also be translated to “time to quit,” a veiled jab at the less successful. The House appreciates extravagance and eccentrics, finding them excellent mediums to display success.

 

 The House d’Arkent pride themselves on their industriousness, and respect merit and success above old noble names and blood. It is common to hear a d’Arkent disregard traditional noble etiquettes and marriage practices in favor of pragmatism. This is likely spawned of John d’Arkent’s personal disdain for such etiquettes, being born a bastard and unloved son of Joseph of Marna.

 

It is common that the children and wards of House d’Arkent make competitions out of their goals. This fire of ambition and constant need to outdo each other come second only to an absolute respect for the family, and the desire to keep it safe and healthy. They consider their successes a gift, both from their family, and to it.

 

 

-=- Wards -=-

 

The House d’Arkent often takes in wards from distant relatives and other nobility and gentry throughout the Empire. These wards are raised as d’Arkents, on the principles of merit, competition, pragmatism, strong work ethic and pride in success.

 

Aleksandr Vladov, son of Aleksandr Vladov

Daniel scribbles three faint letters after this phrase, marking “AIS”.
