[EU/Al-Khezam] The Duchy of Falzame
+14

The Duchy of Falzame is one of the duchies of the Kingdom of Al-Khezam, ruled from the city of Falcon’s Nest.

Guiding principle: In Diversity there is unity, strength, prosperity and beauty.
Reigning Family: Banu-Usifan
Current Duke: Saw’ahya
Personal Motto: Learn, improve, teach! (You must learn from your ancestors, improve yourself in the present and teach the youngs to establish their future!)

The Banu-Usifan family is a leading family of the nomads, who have united Al-Qaum, ending years of strife and turmoil, heralding a new era of peace and prosperity. They have risen to prominence amongst the nomads, founded a dynasty of Emirs which became known as Banu-Usifan, who decided on finding a land flowing with milk and honey, for their people to settle.

History of Falzame

Before there was a Duke, there was a Slave, then a Champion, now Family, swore his fealty to the then Duke, Now King Usifan Banu-Usifan.

The story of Falzame started with a slave boy. If you haven’t heard it, you can ask anyone from Cherrug county, they will be glad to tell their favorite tale. In short he almost died, but was saved by Sam’uel, the blind storyteller. With the help of his commendation Saw’ahya became the member of the Order of the Grand Flock. He drew the attention of Duke Usifan, who sponsored him on the Grand Feast Game, which he won. He was rewarded with the barony of Falcon’s Nest. After the Battle of Owl’s Watch Saw’ahya was taken into the Banu-Usifan family and gained some of the new territories as his dukedom. Essentially I named the duchy, at least I told him the prophecy of Falzame earlier. His proper title from now: “His Grace Duke of Falzame, Grandmaster of the Flock, the northern shield, blessed by all the Qins”.It is not uncommon to see his grace walking the streets of Falcon’s Nest dressed modestly, one might even mistake him for a well mannered commoner. He's known to be unpretentious, and humble, and prefers to be addressed as "my friend" between his casual acquaintances.

We are proud to announce that the ducal seats of the Duchy of Kaga and the Duchy of Falzame will be sister settlements from now on.

We hope this will bring our people closer together and it will facilitate the exchange of trade goods and knowledge between the Demalion Empire and Al'Khezam. It is the first of many steps towards close cooperation.
We are looking forward to welcoming the first ships to the harbor of each other.

From Kaga to Falzame... that could be an intersting shortcut for my first tour into the south, further to the new home of Rhaegys and then to Lichendale and Dae.
