The Great Pendragon
The Fourty Families
The Forty Families are the last vestige of Roman style government here in Logres.
The head of each family sits on the council of the forty families and between them they decide all matters that fall within their power; which is largely limited to the city of London these days.
Each of them maintains at lest one Equitas (a knight), and some of them maintain more, making Londinium a force to be reckoned with… if only they would unite and fight for the interest of all rather than the few wealthy elites. indeed it has been said that if the families spent less time fighting between themselves, they could do a great deal of good for the entire country in the recent times of crises.
As things currently stand however, they seldom unite on any issue, unless it impacts directly on trade with London in a negative way.
