Hesse-Engelburg to Voivde: Prove It

In an official letter from the Hesse-Engelburg government today, Their Graces are reported to have offered the Voivde Max an opportunity to present documentation of his claim to Tradgarland's throne, inviting an emissary to present such documents before Their Graces and a session of the Fürstentumrat, the Principality Council that advises the Fürst.

It is reported that the letter warned the Voivde against any attempt to move troops across Hesse-Engelburg lands pending ruling by Their Graces on the legitimacy of his claims. Given the close relationship between Hesse-Engelburg and the Duchy of Tradgardland, it remains uncertain whether Their Graces will accept the Voivde's claim. Even if Hesse-Engelburg were to accept the claim of Voivde to the throne, most of those in position to know seem inclined to believe the government will still honor its non-aggression pact with the Duke.
