Elector Count of Averland

From Warhammer - Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Elector Count of Averland was the ruler of Averland, a southern province of The Empire. This noble title was usually passed on in a hereditary fashion. Being one of the 15 Electors, the counts of Averland cast one of the votes in the election of a new Emperor. They held their court in the town of Averheim, Averland's capital.

The last Count of Averland, the eccentric Marius Leitdorf, was slain by the Orc Warlord Vorgaz Ironjaw in 2520.[1][2][3]

Notes

*: It must be noted that the canonicity of this information is very unclear, as this name does not appear anywhere else.

**: It's not clear when Von Karlsbach was an Elector Count, but Colleges of Magic were created after the Great War Against Chaos. An imperial wizard appears during the comic and this places the story after 2304 IC.
