This old northern Kytheran noble family has the distinction of having held the Dukedom of Tiramon in fief from both the Fairblood High Kings and the Empire of Nerath. Thus the Ingerlinns’ claim to the title is perhaps the strongest of the crop of contenders, yet they seem least apt to pursue it, instead focusing on their family banking business, the Ingerlinn Trust. This has arguably won them more influence and prestige among the oligarchy than a disputed noble title might have.
The patriarch, Lord Karl-Eynz Ingerlinn, has largely retired from public life, spending nearly all his time administering the family’s ancestral lands in the northern frontiers of the Hill Baronies. The Ingerlinn Trust is currently administered by the eldest daughter of the family, Allabec, who is also the current Director General of the Combine’s leadership board, making her one of the Meridian Lords. Her younger brother Stefan is a gifted military leader who has served as the lord commander of all state and mercenary troops for the northern stronghold of New Winterhaven for the past seven years.
