[!] On the 23rd of the Grand Harvest 1750, following the loss of his heir Crown Prince Richard, King Edward I passed away due to heart failure in his study at Pembroke Palace at the age of 110 and the following letter was found in his chambers and presented to his family [!]
LAST WILL and TESTAMENT of KING EDWARD I of SUFFONIA
We art writing this letter as the last will and testament of Us Edward first of Our name, first King of Suffonia. Today we learned Our dearest firstborn son and heir to Our throne, Crown Prince Richard died because of an infernal heart attack, at the age of 82, during his self-imposed exile for solitude. Up until this day every act and decision of Our’s aimed to leave Our dear Richard a mighty and peaceful kingdom. It was Our intention to abdicate Our throne to him at the end of this war, so that he would reign over Our realms for years to come. Alas cruel fate took Our son long before his time and we find that we lost the joy and purpose of Our life and We can feel that with each breath We art exhaling Our life out of Our feeble body. Thus, We art writing this letter with haste, hoping to complete it before Our time comes. Curious though, after living for a century and a decade, when We try to gather Our thoughts, We find the days of Our youth comes to Us with ease, while even yesterday avoids Us like a shy maiden. We can vividly recall the first day We have stepped on to the lands of Atlas; the year was 1658, We were a young man of eighteen years, accompanied only by Our first wife Elizabeth, Our servant Galen Warwick and Our personal guard Henry Lodmund.
The first settlement We reached was the capital of the Principality of Curon, its name alludes Us after all this time. But We remember her Princess Regent, Linette I. We remember taking appointments from her for an audience concerning joining her civil service, thrice We were stood up. We wonder sometimes if ninety-two years ago We were allowed to join her principality, would We today still be besieging the Kingdom of Curonia with Our armies, would Curonia still bleed under Our blade? Anyhow, We remember that after failing to find a place for Ourself in Curon, We took the roads in search of a home. We found Our home with Darius DeNurem, then Prince of Hanseti, and served him first as an ambassador then as the Baron of Alnwick, whom in return granted Us a fief north of Renatus. He would be the one who introduced Us to his majesty King Aurelius of Renatus-Marna and his young and dashing Archchancellor Charles Elliot Horen in the year 1662. King Aurelius would then on the 21st of Grand Harvest 1663, recognize Us as a Baron and Peer of his kingdom, due to Our contributions to his forces in Atlas Coalition War and We consider that day to be the first day of Our ascension.
After being recognized as a Baron of Renatus-Marna, We commissioned a modest castle of Our own design on Our fief, Alnwick Keep and oversaw its completion by the end of 1664. We would watch with pride while people started settling into Our modest estate and form the people, whom would later be named as Suffonian people. Our community and estate grew slowly but surely and soon We were able rally Our true warriors to serve Our liege. Our life was not without hardship, by the year 1666 a nearby Turkin tribe ruled by a family called Osmanoglu begun looting and raiding our estate, disturbing commerce and growth. As we had no walls to keep all of our citizens safe, with the help of Henry Lodmund we levied all of our able-bodied men and met the Turkins on battlefield. We managed to slay all male members of Osmanoglu Family during the confrontation, thus achieved Our first personal victory and won over Our first vassal. As Henry Lodmund won the respect and hearts of the now leaderless tribe, Turkins accepted to pledge their loyalty to Henry Lodmund and through him to Our House of Suffolk. Osmanoglu tribe, as We called them out of respect to Our fallen opponent, would become Our first de facto vassal. The Tribe would later be re-organised into an armed unit following the Imperial Letters for Osmanoglu Barony issued by Emperor of Man, Augustus I in 1701.
With the vassalisation of Osmanoglu Tribe and due to an influx of migration to Our estate, we ordered the commission of Pembroke City around our Alnwick Keep in the year 1667. But as faith had a cruel plan for Us, it would take years before we could see it completed. In the year 1668 we married for the second time to Loreli Rosewell, as Our first wife and mother of Our three sons passed away the year before. We failed to find happiness in Our marriage, as shortly after the wedding We suffered a seizure and fell into a coma. As We were comatose for the following twelve years, Our knowledge of the events that took place comes from different but friendly sources. With the hope of finding a cure and curiously concerned for Our safety, Henry Lodmund would gather his Turkin soldiers and tour the realm with his comatose liege for the years to come. Our servant Galen Warwick also removed Our sons from our estates and took care of them abroad until We were fully recovered. Our wife Baroness Loreli became regent in Our place but for reasons beyond Us now, she was blamed for Our illness and her young heart failed under the pressure of her new responsibility and those ridiculous allegations and she passed away in the year 1669. Now We art sure the real reason her heart failed was the prospect of living a life without Us. As no member of Our House remained in Our estates, following the advisory letters sent by Henry Osmanoglu, Mister Kagura Balisari, Captain of the Crimson Guard back then, was appointed as Regent of Pembroke. When Henry Lodmund brought Our comatose body back to Pembroke City, after years of searching for a cure and admitting defeat, what he faced was nothing short of a disaster. Selfless efforts of Regent Balisari failed to keep Our city alive, handful of citizens were left in the city, which was resembling a worksite, treasury was empty and in debt. Even bandits and raiders would avoid Pembroke for the fear of finding no compensation for their efforts. We now name this period Dark Age of Suffolk. We have been told, in order to save Our estate, removing Us from power and summoning and declaring Our eldest son, then twenty-one years of age, Richard as the new Lord was being discussed as the only solution. But as every night has a morning after, goods news from the capital swept away the dark clouds over Our estate. Aurelius I, who then recently became the Emperor of Man, rewarded Our loyalty and showed his faith in Us by declaring us, regardless of our health condition, as the Count of Pembroke with his Imperial letters dated 22nd of Horens Calling, 1680. Henry Lodmund recounted that upon hearing the faith of the Emperor in Us, We were able to shed off the accursed coma and open Our eyes and said; “Dress me Henry, for we have much work to do”.
We were fourty years old and healthy but had a County to save. We dedicated all of Our time day and night to the reconstruction of Our Pembroke City. On such a day, soon after Our recovery, We were approached by the Leader of the Order of Ursus, Wilhelm Devereux. Learning that this young twenty six years old man was the son of Linette I formed a prejudice in Our mind against him, but soon after we were able to meet in common points and form a friendship, which was then officialised under the “Treaty of Pembrokeshire and Order of Ursus” dated 22nd first seed 1680. By granting access to Our lands for the homeless Curonians, We were able to forge a relationship that would last for decades. When Order of Ursus was reorganized as the Duchy of Curon in 1683, We retained our alliance with Wilhelm Devereux and Suffonian and Curonian people began to form bonds with the help of mutual goals, events and festivals. By 1683 We manage to complete the reconstruction of Our Pembroke City and with the help of Our new alliances and establishment of new commerce routes, We were able to achieve the level of prosperity We enjoyed before our illness. We conquered nearby caves and citadels infested by unholy creatures and cleansed and expanded Our borders in this prosperous period. Our alliance with Curon was first tested in the year 1690, following the outbreak of the Third Atlas Coalition War. We rallied our troops with Curon and delivered a victory for the Empire of Man. Following this victory We started entertaining the idea of becoming a Curon vassal with Wilhelm Devereux and started having monthly meetings. We privately approached the Emperor of Man with this idea, but it was not accepted, but still we continued to keep this possibility on table with Wilhelm. Our alliance with Wilhelm Devereux became most crucial for him when Emperor of Man Augustus I declared that Duchies of Curon and Adria were to face each other on battlefield to resolve their differences. Curon outnumbered Adria by fielding 6,000 troops, of which 1,600 were Suffonians, and defeated Adria with ease in 1702, the conflict would later be called Gentlemen’s War. Thanks to this victory and our cooperation in the war, Emperor Augustus I relented and confirmed our wishes of vassalage. On the 9th of the Grand Harvest 1703, the “Vassalage Agreement of Suffolk and Devereux” was executed and with this agreement, County of Pembrokeshire became a vassal to the Duchy of Curon and shortly after our friend Wilhelm Devereux was crowned as Wilhelm I of Curonia in 1703.
In the year 1705, when We were sixty-five years of age, We oversaw the migration of Our people to Arcas with the rest of humanity. Reaching a certain age, We would tire with ease now but we knew Our path was only beginning. We first settled our people in Avalain City, which was built with a miraculous speed and used there as Our headquarters while seeking suitable land for Our people. After discussing with Our dear friend Wilhelm I, We decided to settle to the plains north of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska and established a camp and begun construction of a worksite in the year 1706. The settlement We were planning to construct was going to be named Warwick Castle, after our servant Galen Warwick, whom We discovered to have natural talent for architecture and thereafter became Our Head Architect. Surprisingly while hoping to have a friendly relationship with our southern neighbour Haense, We had to endure raids from Haeseni. Both Haense and Curonia brought the issue before Emperor Antonius I and King Wilhelm I insisted Our people should stay in those plains, while King Marius II of Haense wanted Our people gone as soon as possible. Emperor Antonius I favoured Haense and ordered Us to halt all construction while a midway could be reached for our relocation. As the subject brought the distribution of lands between Curonia and Haense into question, a settlement could not be reached before the passing of six long years. During those six long years, Our people stayed at this incomplete and comfortless camp, while We were assisting King Wilhelm I with his diplomatic affairs concerning this matter. In this period, which We now name as the Stagnation Era, We lost more than half of Our people to due various reasons and lost considerable amount of valuables to Haeseni bandits and cut throat sustenance merchants. Even with these setbacks, Our dear friend King Wilhelm I, knew the great potential of the Suffonian people and in the year 1710 We were granted the Duchy of Warwick (letters would be issued 4 years later). Regardless of the apathy of Emperor Antonius I to Our plight, We unquestioningly fulfilled Our obligations as a vassal, even if We did not always agree with them. Such an order was received in 1711, when Emperor Antonius I together with King Marius II of Hanseti-Ruska orchestrated the sacking of the Golden City of Ves. Following imperial orders, Our grandsons dispatched a cavalry force and involuntarily and regretfully butchered and burned citizens and property of the Golden City of Ves. Seeing that Antonius I and Marius II, whom were the reason that Our people were homeless, were eager to unhouse as many imperial citizens as possible would be an unforgettable lesson for Us concerning imperial and Haeseni morality. In the same year, Emperor Antonius I, King Marius II, Jarrack I of Curonia (as regretablly our dear friend Wilhelm I abdicated prior to the agreement) and We as the Duke of Warwick have executed the Ironaxe Initiative (faultily dated 1706 on the original document) and by this agreement Suffolk Woods were granted to Curonia. Curonia later granted the Woods to Us with their letters dated 1712 (faultily dated 1714 on the original document) and thus We relocated Our people to the Suffolk Woods and ordered the construction of the Warwick Castle in 1713, which would be completed in 1718.
After decades of enjoying cooperation, trust and friendship, our relations with Curonia were first rocked in the year 1715. That year King Jarrack I, approached Us and informed Us in confidence that he was not confident of the loyalty of his council and was expecting an attempt against his life. We informed the King that We as the Duke of Warwick was and would remain loyal to him and would support him with 1,500 troops if need be. Woefully, for reasons still unknown to Us to this day, King Jarrack I attempted to arrest his treasonous council members without asking for Our assistance and he was outnumbered, defeated and dethroned by his younger brother Ecbert on the 15th of Horen's Calling, 1715. Ecbert banished Jarrack I and put his young son Alfred II Edgar on the throne as his puppet while he aimed to reign as Regent. When Our troops commanded by Our sons reached Avalain City to rescue Jarrack I, they were told Jarrack I was gone and Suffonians were not allowed in because of their treasonous acts. As We believed back then and still do stand behind, as long as King Jarrack I was alive, the new king and his regent were simply usurpers. We found Ourself in a predicament, on one side was the true king and on the other side the government of Curonia. We confess now We were indecisive and decided to cut all of Our diplomatic ties with Avalain City until the dust settled and a clear succession was established.
As We art constantly reminded, dust never settles in Curonia. In the year 1715, Our spies in Avalain City informed Us that lords of Haense and the Duchy of Adria had planted seeds of rebellion in Nenzing and they were conspiring to put Joseph de Marna on the imperial throne. Emperor Antonius I died and curiously released all of his vassals, including us from imperial oaths and his successor Godfrey, succeeded him as Godfrey III and reformed his empire as Empire of Renatus. Recalling those days We art amused to see disorder is not only a Curonian value. In response Haeseni conspirators crowned Joseph de Marna as Joseph I, the Holy Orenian Emperor and their Pontiff Everard V excommunicated Godfrey III and his line. The Church never fails to produce corrupt priests who shamelessly uses their spiritual masks for their temporal masters. And as a Curonian never skips a chance of treason, Regent Ecbert sided with Joseph I against Emperor Godfrey III. Once again We found Ourself in a difficult position for while We supported Godfrey III as Our Emperor, Our Our royal liege, or at least his questionable representative, was demanding Us to rebel against him. As above all else We believe in the precedence of written contracts, We obliged with the wishes of Curonia in accordance with Our vassalage agreement, but We kept Our contributions as few as legally possible and rallied 100 soldiers for the rebellion. However We did not merely sit idly while Our liege was committing treason, We dispatched envoys to fellow peers and to Our powerful friends in Curonia, presenting Our arguments for supporting Godfrey III. Thankfully with the spectacular victory of Godfrey III over Joseph I in the Siege of Helena, Regent Ecbert was undone and a relative of Our late friend Wilhelm I, Arthos Devereux assumed power in Curonia in 1717 and in return for Curonian independence, swore to side with Godfrey III against Joseph I.
Instability and the loose sense of honour and loyalty of Curonia was too much for Us to stomach. Although the underage King Alfred Edgar I was still the sole power in the realm, Curonian policy was shifting with each new appointment to the council and while a councillor could brand Us a traitor a day before, next day another councillor would deem Us a hero. We approached Arthos Devereux and the young Alfred Edgar I, about Our concerns for the future of Suffonian people and they acknowledged and shared Our concerns. Thus, on 2nd day of Malin’s Welcome 1718 Our House of Suffolk and the House of Devereux executed "Pact of Crimson and Green", releasing us from our feudal obligations to Curonia and acknowledging Us as the independent Archduke of Suffonia and an ally of Curonia. We then executed an alliance named "Of Dragons and Eagles" on the 8th of Harren's Folly, 1718 with the Empire of Renatus, which also acknowledged Us as a sovereign independent Archduke. Thus, Suffonia was born and We were now a belligerent of the War of the Two Emperors. By the year 1719, Joseph I’s support and Empire was dissolving like sugar thrown into water and in 1721 war has ended with Renatian victory. Empire of Renatus then again reformed herself as the Holy Orenian Empire in mockery of the enemy she so easily destroyed.
On the 11th of Owyn’s Light 1722, Pax Orenia was agreed and executed by Us, Emperor Godfrey III, Pierce I of Curonia, Prince of Ves and Duchess of Cresonia. Thus, by signing this agreement, at Our 82th age, borders of Our realm and Our status as an independent and sovereign Archduke was ratified by all major human factions. Tired of war and conflict We hoped and assumed Pax Orenia would bring joy and stability to humanity, We were wrong. Godfrey III was succeeded by his brother Achilius, who would be crowned as Emperor John VII in 1724. Series of crises occurred in the year 1725 and We admit at our current age We art not able to fully recall the details; but We can surely say the events resulted with a three month war with Urguan and the dissolution of Pax Orenia and abdication of Emperor John VII. The throne was contested between Adrian Sarkozic and Charles Alstion but eventually won by Alexander Stephen who was crowned as Alexander II in 1725. In that same year, We executed the “Treaty of Suffonia” with Emperor Alexander II, under which Our Archduchy of Suffonia became an Imperial vassal and was granted a few privileges. To this day, We see Our vassalisation under the Holy Orenian Empire that day, as Our gravest mistake. Although Emperor Alexander II was a fair and competent liege, we still hold his statue in Our palace garden which we also named after him, as We will mention below, Our people suffered under his successors. Furthermore the knighthood system We were working on for our independent realm had to be halted under new Imperial Law and to this day, even as a King, We failed to find the time needed to finish Our design and We probably will not find it in this lifetime, We hope our heirs will finish what we have started.
Years between 1725 and 1731 were peaceful and uneventful, We finally had time to focus on domestic matters and commerce and Our realm prospered, in the year 1728, Sir Valentín of the House of Castelo vassalized under Us as the Viscount of Halburg and his military experience helped with Our planned reforms, by 1731 Our Archduchy was capable of fielding 3,000 troops whom were all eager to be tested with blood. Uneventfulness would be short as in 1731, Duke of Adria, Adrian de Sarkozy was elected as the Lord Protector by the great houses of the realm. We confess while many great lords abstained their vote, We were one of the yay sayers and thus Adrian won the election. Prior to the election, Adrian promised Us the formation of a parliament consisting of the electors which would act as a legislative and supervisory body until such a time the Emperorship could be restored. As on the day of his confirmation he cauterised the face of Alexander Merentel, Duke of Vintas, We knew Adrian would not keep any of his prior promises. We admit We enjoyed the branding of Duke Merentel as he was a fool and his actions (toe sucking) were ultra vires and shameful but him being punished without any due process was setting a dangerous precedent which Adrian would jauntily follow.
By the year 1735, Our spies from the imperial capital of Helena brought before Us concerning intelligence, suggesting Lord Protector Adrian was preparing to form a senate which would give all legislative power that should rightfully belong to the lords of the realm as promised, to elected commoners. With this concerning information We have approached to King Andrew III of Hanseti-Ruska and King Pierce I of Curonia. They too had concerns about the imperial government and thus We have met in Our Warwick castle on 3rd of Horen’s Calling 1735 and executed the “Humanitarian Cooperation Agreement” aiming to form a permanent diplomatic bond between our three nations and especially to assist Curonia, whom suffered back then from an unnatural disaster. Thus we hoped to be able to maintain the economic and social growth of our regions while the imperial policy was rapidly shifting into a pro-centralist one. Our spies disclosed that the cooperation agreement was faced with mockery and hostility in the capital and the imperial council was getting ready to go as far as disbanding and banning our charity organisations and its operations. In 1736, to deepen the bond formed between Haense, Curonia and Suffonia we formed The Northern Association for Free Trade & Administration, as abbreviated as NAFTA. Formation of NAFTA was deemed as treasonous by the imperial government but no official declaration targeting the organisation was made initially, however Our spies continued to inform us of imperial hostility behind the scenes. A political body aiming to strengthen the bonds between imperial vassals was directly harming the centralist interests of the imperial government. We told King Pierce I and King Andrew III in 1736 that the empire was after their crowns, fourteen years later today the Emperor holds the title of king for all of his royal vassals save the Kingdom of Haense, We wonder how long King Andrew IV can keep his crown safe from the treacherous hands of the Empire.
Soon after the formation of NAFTA, Lord Protector Adrian and his council issued the “Edict of Establishment 1736” and formed the Imperial Senate and the House of Lords. As per this Edict, Suffonian citizens were not allowed to run for the Senate or vote for Senators and none of the Suffonian Lords were appointed to the House of Lords. We brought this injustice before the imperial government but We were not offered any explanation or solution. In the year 1737, Lord Protector Adrian declared war against The Federation of Mokh-Urak to avenge the humiliating defeat of Duke Alexander Merentel and called all of his vassals to arms. Believing in the unity of mankind, setting aside Our differences and disagreements with the imperial government, We obliged and rallied 3,300 troops for Lord Protector Adrian’s war. Following the victory over the orcs, Antonius Sigismund, a man with questionable claims to the throne, was declared as Emperor Peter III. In good faith, We once again approached to the imperial government through Our grandsons and grand-grandsons to discuss Our representation in the Imperial Senate and the House of Lords. We explained while Suffonians were fighting imperial wars (and We might add we had and could outrally some of the royal vassals at that point) Suffonians were the only faction in the imperial state who were not represented in the Senate. And even if imperial law dictated lords who could evidence their letters patent would be appointed to the House of Lords, our Lords Lodmund and Castelo were denied seats. While We were not provided official explanation for this denial, Our spies informed Us that imperial government did not wish to see Suffonians whom were known to have decentralists views, represented in the imperial government in any capacity. Some imperial officers even went as far as to suggest Suffonians were not allowed on the Senate because they did not fill the imperial census, while the census was only issued for Helena, Kaedrin, Haense and Curonia.
But Emperor Peter III did not stop at preventing our representation, he summoned the members of NAFTA, an organisation which We founded for the betterment of the realm, and threatened his own vassals with war if we did not disband NAFTA. We and King Pierce I of Curonia wished to remain defiant but King Andrew III of Haense, ever the romantic, believed Peter III had the good of the realm in his heart and obliged with his orders and thus NAFTA was disbanded in 1738. We must confess, to this day We believe if King Andrew III had chosen a sterner standing, many of the horrors that would follow could be prevented. Peter III was not done with his vassals, he asked representatives from his vassals to sit on legislative and judicial committees for regulating those respective fields. A common ground was resolved on the relative topics with the imperial government and We were inclined to believe Peter III was at last showing good faith, once again Our faith was misplaced. Soon after Peter III issued judicial regulations that were opposite to what was decided and he placed the judicial authority of his lord vassals under appointed commoners. In addition to this mockery, when We reminded Peter III’s ministers of Our right to ennoble Our vassals as granted under Our vassalage agreement with Emperor Alexander II, they elegantly expressed that; “things have changed”.
As one article of Our vassalage agreement could be disregarded in such a way, We decided We were ready to disregard rest of the articles where We pledged Our loyalty. In the year 1740, We met with Angelo de Alba, Lord Regent of Curonia and Prince William Devereux, Heir of Curonia, whom were both supporters of the disbanded NAFTA. We entertained the idea of freeing our nations from imperial tyranny and forming a new form of independent administration to ensure a safe and prosperous future for our people. Coincidently, while We were discussing our independence, Alliance of Independent States, which was consisting of Morsgrad, Rubern, Elven Tripartite, Krugmar and their allies, declared war on the Empire. Representatives of Morsgrad approached Us about a possible alliance, We promised to entertain this idea but We informed them that We had to consult with our friend and ally Curonia before making any moves. Tragically, while these discussions were going on, an event which no one could foresee transpired within Our castle walls. Pontiff John I, uninvitedly attended to the wedding of Lord Castelo and bandits following him tried to murder him in Our Castle. As he was unexpected, there were not enough guards to stop the attackers thus We and Our family personally defended Pontiff John I. While we made sure John I was unharmed, We lost Our grand-grandson and Our right eye while defending the canonist pontiff. Our injuries Were too much for Our old and fragile body and failing to recover from Our wounds, once again second time in Our lifetime We had fallen into coma in 1741. While We would remain comatose until 1746, Our legally appointed regent has executed Our will. In accordance with the information We art provided by Our family and ministers after Our recovery, in the same year of Our injury, Suffonia, Morsgrad, Curonia and Rubern had executed the “Pact of Independence” and Suffonia joined the war against the evil orenian empire. While the period between 1741 and 1746 saw no major battles, AIS and Suffonia managed to win countless raids against imperial forces. We have renewed Our everlasting alliance with Our Kharadeen friends and we made an alliance with Radaghastians. Houses of Aliquam, Gladridge and Petrovya swore their loyalty to us. By the year 1746, Suffonia was capable of rallying 7,100 troops for the war against the empire, the largest army of its time.
When We recovered in 1746, We were 106 years old. We were finally getting old but still We had many obligations to fulfil for Our people. We acknowledged and approved the acts of Our regent and further insisted We should share Our prosperity with Our Curonian friends, one way or another. As the growth and prosperity of Our people and estates became uncontainable under the archducal administrative structure, on the 21st of the Sun's Smile, 1746, We were crowned as the first King of Suffonia. We must add We also happen to be the youngest King of Suffonia, but We assume We will not be holding that title for long. With our ascension, We ennobled our loyal vassals, the House of Gladridge and Petrovya as baronial houses and we saw fit to ennoble the House of Aliquam as a comital house.
We had an eventful life, but sadly We still had many things We wanted to do before Our time comes to an end. As this is our Will and Testament, We art sure Our kin, the House of Suffolk can hardly wait to learn about their inheritance. We would say, the story of a man who was born a commoner and dies a king, the experience offered, is the greatest inheritance One can hand down to his family, but sadly We know Our kin and that would be never enough for them, thus for the ones who art not satisfied with the gift of experience and lacks the taste for spiritual, Our distribution of Our temporal assets art as follows:
Our Deed of Will in accordance with Article VI of Suffonian Code on Inheritance and Succession, No: I;
1) To the grandson of Our late son Henry Suffolk, Prince Edmund Ralph Suffolk, Justiciar of Suffonia, whom We always liked because his hair reminded Us of Our favourite son Richard, WE bequeath 20,000 minas from Our personal coffers, so that he can use the funding for his judicial obligations and betterment of Suffonain justice system.
2) To the grandson of Our late son Henry Suffolk, Prince James Percival Suffolk, Treasurer of Suffonia, as he is clearly more interested in hunting Our enemies than filling our coffers WE relent and bequeath him Our personal armours and arms.
3) To the son of Our late son Charles Suffolk, Prince John Nicholas Suffolk, Chamberlain of Suffonia, as our heir Richard passed away and he is to inherit Our Crown in accordance with Suffonian Code on Inheritance and Succession, No: I, WE bequeath him the responsibility of taking care of the Suffonian people and abiding by the Suffonian Law.
4) To the blood born female kin of our House of Suffolk WE bequeath each one of them 1,000 minas from Our personal coffers.
5) WE task Prince James Percival Suffolk with establishing a foundation for maintenance of the Warwick Cathedral and WE bequeath 20,000 minas from Our personal coffers for this purpose.
6) WE bequeath our remaining personal wealth to the Royal Exchequer.
DIEU MON DROIT,
HIS ROYAL MAJESTY Edward I of the House of Suffolk, King of Suffonia,
Duke of Warwick, Count of Pembroke and Baron of Alnwick
