The Kingdom of Haense

The Dual Monarchy of Hanseti-Ruska, or more commonly refered to as just, The Kingdom of Haense, is a nation that lies within the northern most parts of Almaris. The nation is ruled by a king (of course). This king has always been of the Barbonov bloodline throughout the entirety of its existence. While the king rules with ultimate authority within Haense, it does have a somewhat constitutional monarchy in which he is advised by a council of Eight members that oversee their respective sects of the government. This Aulic Council is composed of people who have been chosen because of their ability to organize, lead, and cultivate community within the kingdom. The Royal City of Karosgrad serves as the current capital of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska and is the seat of the dual Crown.

Current Leader: Karl III of Haense
