Who's where....

As the summer continues I felt it might be useful to myself, and perhaps to others, to say the whereabouts of certain key individuals from the Duchy of Tradgardland. So here goes:

Von Bergmann- in the Scottish capital - Edinburgh awaiting the next battle for the True King.He divides his time between training his highlanders and reasearching the local flora and fauna.
Duc de Padirac - at sea off Leith harbour, Scotland, awaiting the disembarking of himself and members of the Legione Tradgardland prior to the next battle for the True King.Hopes to find palaeographic curiosities for his cabinet back home.

The Cardinal - enjoying the Gallian hospitality at Versailles. Currently dividing his time between quiet diplomatic activity with the Gallian Cardinal and writing a pamphlet upon the ordination rotes of the Melkite Church. Hopes the subject of betrothal may be raised once more.

Aeneas Todsheim - an 18 year old polymath and prodigy of Von Bergmann. On St Kilda ,having been recently rescued from a subterranean burial chamber after a landslide. Recovering in an island black house prior to planning the next part of his voyage. Hopes to find yet more facts regarding the voyages of his Tradgardlandian forebears.

Alisona- Daughter to the Duke and Duchess of Tradgardland. Currently disguised as a serving girl and engaged upon a mission of espionage in the woods betwixt Skogsmork and Tradgardland. Her task is coming to an end and the Court awaits her news.

Duke and Duchess of Tradgardland- Karl Frederick and Liv are currently enjoying some time away from the city- enjoying a heady mix ( with the Court ) of Tennis,banqueting,hunting, reading and discreet meetings with the Inner Council.Enjoying the Sun when he is here.

Duke Wolfgang of Skogsmork- currently taking up the reigns of day to day running of the Duchy and planning his next move ... A letter to his cronies within the Reichs-Executions-Armee might well serve in these dark days.

Generaloffizer Mackay - currently deployed in the Reichs Duchy of Beerstein, acting ( along with his staff) in the capacity as artillery, engineering and pyrotechnic advisor. Hoping to be allowed to celebrate a victory with a fireworks display and a portrait painted by a local artist.

Gen. Mckay was toasted often for his exploits during the Battle of Alesgarden. His well placed artillery rained death and destruction upon the Prussian infantry allowing Gen. Picklemny's Hungarians and Gen. Blutundedonner's Dragoons to rout the depleated enemy.
