  3. THE FIEF MANAGEMENT EDICT, 1736 By order of his Excellency, Peter Faust de Vitus, The Secretary of the Interior, 16th of Horen’s Calling, 1736. Wary of future misinterpretations of their respective roles, it has come to the Office of Interior’s attention that the duties of the realm’s enfeoffed are scarcely recorded and underpublicized. In lieu of this, the Office of Interior has opted to fulfill the duties entrusted to it in the Council of State Establishment Edict, 1732 as highest administrator by enforcing this Edict’s mandate on the sub-Ducal landed classes of the realm. Whilst fully applicable to the enfeoffed of the Orenian Crownlands, it must be stated that the vassal territories of our Holy Empire beyond the Crownlands are granted exemption from the Fief Management Edict, 1736 by the Office of Interior. This goes without saying then that vassal leaders such as the Kings of Haenseni-Ruska, Curonia and Kaedrin as well as Dukes and so on have no obligation to enforce this Edict upon the lower ranking enfeoffed of their own respective territories, though may opt to follow the Crownlands’ example and add this edict to their own property laws if they so please. Henceforth, the following terms are to be recognised as legal definitions and requirements of the landed sub-Ducal nobility in the Crownlands (and further territories opting to follow its example): A ‘Fief’ in the context of this Edict is defined as a plot of land granted legally by letter of enfeoffment to an individual Knight or Dame, Baron or Baroness, Viscount or Viscountess, Count or Countess or Margrave or Margravine. The rights of ownership bestowed upon the enfeoffed stated in their letter of enfeoffment, regardless of wording, must be recognised as secondary to the Visconti Principle as recorded in Lex Imperialis. All duties relating to tax, levvies, peacekeeping and so on afforded by respective letters of enfeoffment must be prioritised above this Edict. All privileges relating to the aforementioned must be prioritised as secondary to this Edict. It is the privilege of the enfeoffed to construct for themselves or their house a reasonably sized manor or estate accompanied by any farms, stables, mines, workshops, factories or other sites for the purpose of said Fief’s trades as well as appropriate housing for the Fief’s labour force as outlined in the Fief Management Edict VI. The construction of any towns, villages, fortresses, castles, keeps, military camps, inns, hotels, hostels, groves, abbeys, monasteries and other settlement intended to house a mass group larger than permitted in the Fief Management Edict VI are strictly prohibited. It is the enfeoffed’ duty to request permission for and abide by orders involving the construction of military buildings for the Secretary of War. It is the privilege of the enfeoffed’ to house no more than three serfs, household staff, bannermen or other forms of labourer upon their lands along with their legal spouses and children aged below five years. Legal or blood relatives of the enfeoffed may also populate a Fief infinitely. Exemptions in hosting more serfs workers or household staff than specified must be approved of by the Secretary of the Interior. Exemptions in hosting more bannermen than specified must be approved of by the Secretary of War. It is the privilege of the enfeoffed to utilise their land as they please for means of generating revenue in service of their house and the Crown, however proposing the land for otherwise illicit use is strictly prohibited. Illicit use is defined as housing, producing or encouraging any and all forms elsewhere defined criminal activity. It is the duty of the enfeoffed to outline the borders of their Fief with the growth of a hedgerow in the absence of natural borders such as bodies of water cliffs higher than five meters. These hedgerows must be consciously planted and managed in accordance with the size and location of one’s Fief as predetermined by the Crown. Signed and Approved HIS EXCELLENCY, Peter Faust de Vitus, the Secretary of the Interior, Lord of Vitzburg, Admiral of the Fleet and First Sea Lord of the Holy Orenian Empire

  6. Flyers are posted across the Holy Orenian Empire, advertising as follows: THE NEW HELENA TAVERN A PUBLIC WORKS PROJECT SPEARHEADED BY THE IMPERIAL OFFICE OF THE INTERIOR Citizens of the Empire, it has come to the attention of the Office of the Interior that, following its reconstruction, our illustrious capital of Helena finds itself without a properly staffed tavern. So begins auctions, so that one might earn not only the duty to keep the tavern well staffed and running at all times, but also the privilege of running what the Office of the Interior estimates to be the most popular drinking establishment in all of Holy Oren, wherein a proper business is expected to be ran completely exempt from future rents or taxes. By bidding, those offering coin do hereby agree to: -Keep the bar staffed as often as possible. -Keep the tavern stocked with food and drink for the Helena citizenry. -Keep the Emperor’s peace and quell rabble rousing. -Entertain the city of Helena by making bi-annual use of the tavern’s stage.

  8. THE VICTORIA CANAL EDICT, 1734 A PUBLIC WORKS PROJECT MAPPED APPROVED BY THE OFFICE OF THE INTERIOR Artistic designs for the Renzfeld portion of the Canal, accredited to one Godfrey de Leumont c.1733 It is with great pride and satisfaction that the Office of the Interior unveils its current public works project, the Viktorya (Johannianised - Victoria) Canal. After tireless efforts from both the Office of the First Sea Lord and the Office of the Interior beneath His Imperial Excellency Peter Faust de Vitus since the reign of his Imperial Majesty Alexander II to present day, and the collaboration of His Imperial Excellency Peter ‘The Poor’, His Excellency Terrence May and His Majesty King Andrik of Haense (as well as various others throughout Renzfeld and Haenseni-Ruska), construction is finally set to begin for the Victoria Canal, set to run by Aqueduct from the newly reconstructed city of Helena to briefly through the County of Renzfeld before primarily cutting through the territory of Haenseni-Ruska and ending at the newly reconstructed city of Reza, in accordance with the The Royal Proclamation of 1733 and the Northern Ferry Agreement of 1732 put forth by the Kingdom of Haenseni-Ruska. The main length of the Canal between new Helena and the heart of Haenseni-Ruska is set to be completed soon after the completion of Helena’s reconstruction, whilst its final portion (linking it to Lake Milena) will be completed soon after the completion of Reza’s reconstruction some time later, as approved by the Office of the Interior by the grace of GOD and His Imperial Excellency the Lord Protector, Adrian de Sarkozy. Construction shall be carried out by labourers contracted by the Secretary of the Interior, in accordance with The Council of State Establishment Edict, 1732. This is estimated to half present travel times between Haense and the Crownlands, and further unite our glorious Empire, all at costs a fraction of (and speeds consistent with) railway alternatives posed in the past. Issued and Confirmed by His Imperial Excellency, the Secretary of the Interior, Peter Faust de Vitus, Admiral of the Fleet and First Sea Lord of the Empire
