Glasionad (pronounced Glass-ion-add') is a town of the Kingdom of Lytera and the home of the newest members of the Royal Family, the House of Houghton. The town is the most northern part of Lytera as of August 30th, 2021. To the west of the town is Binley Woods and to the south is Draycote Water.

Etymology

Glasionad is named after the Irish words for Green and Center.

History

There has been human habitation near Glasionad since at least the Neolithic period, as evidenced by finds of flint axes, but the town around it dates to the post-Roman period. The village formed part of the Viking Danelaw region, but later formed part of the royal estates of Harold, last Saxon king of England.

The area around Glasionad was a thriving centre of the woollen industry during the Middle Ages and was known for its worsted cloth and flannel. In the 18th century, the area gained a reputation of a different sort - as a centre for smuggling. Nearby is the Duel Stone, commemorating the last duel fought in Norfolk, in 1698. This illegal duel took place between Sir Henry Hobart, of Blickling Hall, and a lawyer named Oliver Le Neve. Hobart received a fatal wound, and Le Neve fled the country, only to return 2 years later when he was pardoned.

In 2019, Princess Siobhan and Prince Robert moved into the town, with HRH Princess Aofie born a year later. After her first birthday in 2021, the town was officially annexed, though the date was pushed back due to the writing of the constitution. .
