How do I say this.  Atenveldt was a principality for a year before it became a
kingdom.  Ansteorra was a principality for two years be for it became a
kingdom.  Calontir was a principality for three years be for it became a

Calontir acted like a principality and talked like a principality before it
became a principality.

So for my money making the north a principality means they want to be a free and
independent state.  This may or may not actually be the case. I for one would
hate to see this happen but that is the historical precedent in the area.   If
the area could 'just' be a principality I might be in favor  of it but even that
would mean that it would probably become more insular.  Fewer people would
travel south fewer would travel north.  It could well become an invisible
dividing line separating us from our brothers and sisters to the south.  We
would become much poorer for that and I like to think the south would too.

All in all I have no vote in this and it cannot effect me directly, so I
probably should have stayed out of this matter and you are welcome to write me
personally and tell me so.  But my heart still remembers the home of my youth
and my good wishes go with it no matter where I roam.
