Québec is the further most Northeasterly of the Duchies of Coleraine. It is the home to the largest French speaking population within the realm. Québec is home to one of the largest percentages of Catholics in one area in North America. The seat of the Grand Duke is in the Québec City.

Origins of the Grand Duchy

The land within the Duchy comprises the majority of the heavily populated lands of the Canadian Province of Québec. Originally created as a colony of the Kingdom of France in the 17th century, it was conquered by the British in 1763. In 2009 the Kingdom of Coleraine annexed the lands which make up the Grand Duchy after being invited by a number of local residents. It was directly ruled by the Crown until May of 2009 when Seán III named a distant cousin Jean de Blois as Grand Duke of Québec along with his title of Viscount of Blois.

Governance

The Duchy is subdivided into a number of Baronies. The Grand Duchy is co-governed by the Catholic Archbishop of Québec, Primate of Canada, with certain authority given to the Archbishop of Montréal. The Grand Duchy is the only constituency within the realm where French is the common language. The linguistic status of the Grand Duchy states that French and Irish are to be the two Official languages of state, with Latin as the language of the Church.
