Council of Four, the
The Council of Four is the governing body of Baldur’s Gate.
Its members, the Grand Dukes, had sole authority over the city’s laws and decrees.
The council is advised by the Parliament of Peers, and though they are not obliged to listen to its advice, the parliament is also in charge of electing new dukes if one of them passes away or resigns.
After the death of Grand Duke Abdel Adrian, duke Torlin Silvershield has delayed the election of a new duke, preventing Ulder Ravengard’s traditional selection as the marshal of the Flaming Fist. However, when Holdran Blazespear arrived, he was sworn into the council in a private, modest ceremony.
