1. A Tochlandish term for any noble title attached to enfeifed land. 2. A Tochlandish political organization made up of most of the noblitiy of Tochland and one representative from the city of Holding that organizes the defense of Tochland and votes on the creation or amendment of laws in the Volksraat.
Originally formed as an advisory council of war leaders under Wilmer Babingen I in 7984, it grew to encompass the dispensation of justice and management of the royal treasury as Tochland solidified its culture and political solvency. In recent Tochlandish history the Landsknecht has worked to give more power to its members in exchange for passing taxes to fund the Crown, and became quite unpopular with the peasantry. King Balric III used this to his advantage as part of a multi-pronged effort to rebuild some of the monarchy’s power by turning popular support towards a series of reforms weakening the nobles by stripping some judicial powers from them and officially giving them to the Church of Atrian.
