The Council of Lords is one of the two governing councils of Tortall besides the Council of Commons. Both councils vote on the funds of the realm. The council usually adjourns for summer months, but the king can delay this when important matters need a decision.[1]

The name suggests that Tortall's noblemen—most probably the holder of the fiefs—make up the Council of Lords, although it is unknown if all the realm's lords are represented there or only a selected number. Furthermore its other obligations are unknown.

During the reign of King Jonathan, Duke Gareth of Naxen and Lord Martin of Meron were part of the Council of Lords; Duke Gareth also led the council.[2]
