Ballads of the Bay
|Liege:||Robert Baratheon, King of the Seven Kingdoms|
The very place where Aegon the Conqueror began his campaign to conquer the Seven Kingdoms, King’s Landing has become the seat of power and center of trade throughout the Seven Kingdoms. King’s Landing is the cultural and political heart of Westeros. It is from here that King Robert, sometimes called the Usurper, rules the entirety of the Seven Kingdoms from his mighty castle, the Red Keep.
While King’s Landing is but a city, a number of noble houses swear fealty directly to the crown and the capital of the land. Houses sworn to King’s Landing benefit from a slightly higher population, improved law, and defenses due to their proximity to the Iron Throne. However, they are almost all smaller, weaker, and less influential than other houses.
