Vassal of The Crown
Words: "No one may harm us unpunished"
Sigil:A fox on a purple field.
The city-states of the Lyceum are far more fractious and treacherous than any other vassals in the whole of Arvum and could never be expected to follow a leader that is not clever, powerful and capable. House Velenosa has spent centuries ensuring they fulfill every requirement and more. While not every Grand Duke of the Lyceum has been from House Velenosa, the vast majority of the leaders of the Lyceum have come from the sly southern foxes. It is a credit to the talent and skill of House Velenosa's nobles that despite the Lyceum has a whole being an ending intrigue of manipulation, far more other nobles are willing to trust Velenosa than other Lycene houses. Their word, once given, is very rarely broken- they have honor, even if it is of an exceptionally dangerous variety.

Description: The city-state of Lenosia is famed throughout all the Realm for its vineyards and its gardens, the prosperous trading hub producing much of the most sought after vintages for all of Arvum. While the lovely public gardens cultivated by House Velenosa are a popular sight for most travelers, perhaps even more stunning is the palatial seat of House Velenosa, the lords paramount over all of the Lyceum. So beautiful is the palace that many fail to notice the imposing and effective defenses of its central keep, a guarantee that even if a force was able to breach the defenses of the city it would take an extended and determined siege to have any hope of attacking House Velenosa itself.
Trends: Founding member of the Empyrean Trade Route.
Landmarks: The massive Princess Jaenelle Velenosa's Library of Lenosia has been built, a sprawling structure only second in size to the Great Archive of Vellichor in Arx.
The Great Road was built connecting to Lenosia in 1010 AR.
