Maecht was a kingdom in the southern part of the continent, bordered by Metinna to the north, Geso to the east, and Ebbing to the south. However, in the 1250s it eventually fell to Nilfgaard and became part of the Province of Metinna during the Usurper's reign.[1]

Maecht maintains a pretense of autonomy where the citizens elect their king, even if the elections depend in fact rather on the Emperor's decision.[2]

History Edit

King Akerspaark continued to rule after it was subjugated until 1258 when he died of acute pneumonia after being stabbed by hit men. An election took place and was won by Hoët, though Codringher suggested that Imperator Emhyr, who took back the Nilfgaardian throne just one year prior, have a deciding vote.

Sensing instability, Maechtian nobles, like Duke Rudiger, formed insurrection forces in Thurn but were soon put down by the Gemmerian Pacifiers in a punitive expedition. By 1267 Maecht was firmly bound to the Empire and its mercenaries partook in the Second Northern War.[3]

Notes Edit

  • Duny claimed the people of Maecht were very superstitious, though this could have been a ruse to explain why he didn't want to go back home immediately after marrying Pavetta.
