The Insane Tyrant
- Feb 3, 2015
Let me alleviate one of the concerns towards my proposal - that there would be no regional governors. In fact, the act envisions small regions, not 'Italy', 'Castille' etc., but regions such as 'Barcelona', 'Naples' etc.. The nobility in these regions is often limited to one active at court, who would immediately fill the position. In the other regions, the nobles will surely know who amongst them is best suited as leader. As there is often a difficulty finding an able Steward, this would guarantee that there is someone else than the crown improving the provinces.
I suppose what you say is true, but we must be prepared for all eventualities. Should a region prove itself unable to function independently, the Crown, or rather the Steward, should be able to restore order and proper operation to that region. I will not see areas of the Empire fall to anarchy and ruin simply because they could not decide on what action to take. My grandfather worked far too long and far too hard for this Empire's benefit for me to see our prosperity reversed so soon after his death.
