Social Structure[edit | edit source]

Anyone from Leon is bron as either a noble (someone who can prove that all of their ancestors for 5 generations were of noble blood) or pesants (anyone else) and it is almost legaly impossible to switch between the two.

The king is the ultimate owner of everything in Leon and he then grants land to dukes and marquesses (the key diffrence between the two is that a duke can only be decended from one of Briskos's original 12 apointed dukes and must be given one of the original 12 dukedoms to rule, where as a marquess is given such a status as a reward for his actions for the king rather then because the king needs to apoint someone). land owning nobles not dirrectly loyal to the king are collectively called lords while ones that do not own lands are know as Lions.
