King's Bench
Description The Court that handles especially heinous and treasonous crimes, that would otherwise be dealt with by the king himself. Clerks of the Court of the King's Bench investigate and persecute such crimes so the king will not be forced to spend all of his time dealing with such matters. Clerks of the King's Bench represent his justice in every duchy in Baranur. Formed into a regular court of justice with its own experts and judicial commissions by King Caeron Tallirhan. Under earlier kings, it had been a more nebulous affair.
