Issue: Two Societies
Caratacus Strongarm, Elaphius’s son and heir, has continued as his father did. He takes inspiration from Theoderic, who divided Italy into effectively two societies. In Belgia, there is a civilian British class, marked by Christian religion, Latin, and Roman law and traditions, and a military Saxon class, marked by pagan religion, Germanic language, and Saxon law and traditions. Caratacus believes this will create a stable and prosperous society, but many other Britons see him as a traitor for this.
Allegiance: Loyal to Camulod
After Badon Hill, Camulod was unpopular only amongst the rich landowners who believed they could seize more for themselves without its meddling, and the Saxon warlords who believed in Hengest’s old vision, but in the years since those factions have gained greater wealth and power in Belgia. Whiel holding court at Venta Belgarum, Arthur Pendragon passed judgments against men from both of those camps in cases that highlighted their manipulation and exploitation of the people. That helped quiet much of their rabble-rousing in the kingdom, and reinforced once again the ideals of Camulod.
