The Mercian Parliament House is the primary legislature of the Kingdoms and Lands Represented in the Council of the Diarchal Crowns of the Disciples, also known as Mercia. The Mercian Parliament House votes on motions that will affect the people of Mercia, which then require the Lord Temporal's ratification to come into law. The House is formed out of elected nobles from both the Region of Clyro and the Archduchy of Loringia.

The Parliament House

The Mercian Parliament House is elected from the nobility from both Clyro and Loringia, so that both administrative regions will be represented in the House meetings.
