Matteus van Hoogmans was the Baron of Marienburg in the 21st Centruy IC who signed a unique treaty with the High Elves. [1a]

History

When a strange ship was sighted near his home city, Matteus dispatched four of his own ships to investiagte the vessel which they discovered was manned by High Elves. They escorted the Lughsoll-Siaisullainn (Jewel-gleam of Sunlight on Wavefoam) into the harbour and Matteus entered into negotiations with its master, the Sea Elf Wavemaster, Sullandiel Fartrader. [1a]

To his delight, the Elves seemed happy to talk and together with the heads of the cities Merchant Houses and the High Priest of Haendryk Matteus forged a exclusive treaty over the next two weeks. [1a]
