Line of Succession

Unfortunately, earlier records were lost in the Great Fire of Der Alte Schloss in 1507, however the family claims to have held the title since the 13th Century, also claiming that the lost records prove descent from one of Charlemagne's Paladins. Whether the reader prefers to believe or disbelieve this claim is entirely up to the individual, however doubts aired as to the veracity of the family's claim could lead to a long walk and a short drop.
