Princehold, formerly known as Queensgrace, is a comital[2][3] fief in Tortall.

History

The lands were originally known as Queensgrace and were owned by the Queensgrace family. In the 200s HE, they belonged to Count Dewin of Queensgrace and his lady. After the pair's high treason, King Roger stripped them and their progeny of the title and lands and gave them to Sabine of Macayhill for her valor in rescuing Crown Prince Gareth, the king's heir apparent. The lands were renamed "Princehold" in reference to the lady's rescue of a prince[4].

Family Members

The mention of members of the house of Princehold in George Cooper's guide suggest that Princehold was a heritable peerage given to Lady Sabine, and not a life peerage.

200s HE

  • Sabine of Macayhill, Lady of Princehold—head of household

400s HE

  • Remic of Princehold[1], is an advocate of some kind, as Wyldon of Cavall wrote to him about possibly reversing the decree made so women could enter page training. Ironic as Remic's likely ancestor was one of the most famous knights of the 200s HE.

As Remic is not the Lord of Princehold, it is likely there are other members of the family who are living.
