The Lesser Lords of Ansgar
While the upper nobility of Ansgar control the major power within the political, financial, and military structure, it is the rank of Lesser Lord that these nobles rely on. The Lesser Lords of Ansgar are, usually, descended from offshoots of noble houses: the children of younger brothers and cousins. They rule over small regions of the greater territory that they serve, usually a city or village. They see to the day-to-day activities of their lands and collect taxes and goods for their liege.
