Template:Kingdom infoboxTemplate:BigQuote The Duchy of Toussaint is a small principality within the Empire of Nilfgaard, famous for its wines, enabled by the volcanic soil. This mountainous place is ruled by Anna Henrietta during the events of the games and novels. Toussaint has no military or an army of its own, nor a police force, just a few regiments of knights-errant watching the borders and roads, though their attention is said to be keen.

Interestingly, although considered a province of Nilfgaard, the Nilfgaardian Empire does not tend to impose imperial authority on the affairs of Toussaint and for the most part does not violate its borders.Template:Toccenter

The coat of arms for Toussaint is not actually described in the novels. This particular coat of arms was designed by our resident heraldry and Witcher expert Mboro. About that second, it was inspired by Czech concept and redesigned by Juraj103.

Flag

Flag of Toussaint by SMiki55 is based on icon of the Duchy present on the in-game map from The Witcher 3 with second expansion installed.

Trivia

  • The name is the French name for the "real world" Catholic holiday celebrated on November 1st, All Saints' Day.
  • In the Witcher 3 expansion Blood and Wine, many of its inhabitants will simply speak French at times. This includes grammar; one letter mockingly calls the italian wine Est est (French for "is is") Était était (French for "was was").
