The Duchies of Estalon
Archbishop of Estal
The Archbishop of Estal is the head of the Sharist Faith, and as such is one of the most powerful people in the duchies. The position is given to the longest serving bishop in Estal, and thus they tend to have short reigns as most bishops stay in their positions until death. This system was implemented by the First emperor Estalon, and while some cynics have stated that it was done to limit the threat posed by the church, the official church cannon Has Emperor Lorinus the First spending days fasting and praying before being granted a vision of an unbreakable line of succession where only the most worthy are allowed to lead the church.
