The Kingdom of Esperance Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside,
& San Bernardino Counties, California
In 1994, the Duchy of Calais combined with the Cantons of Aquitaine and Gaston to create a new duchy, Esperance. Seven months later, in April of 1995, the Duchy was created a Kingdom that extended from the Pacific Ocean to the Twentynine Palms/Indio areas of the California desert. Again in 1997, the borders changed. A bit of the southeast lands were given to the duchy of Sangrael at her birth, and in exchange, Esperance grew to the east and west. This kingdom now extends from Santa Barbara at the far west, eastward to the California/Nevada state line, including most of Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside Counties.
Service has been uppermost in Esperance’s history, with her subjects always ready to jump in where needed in the Empire. As a result, there is a hefty sprinkling of Princes and Princesses, as well as a wealth of Counts and Countesses Royal. In any given reign, there are a number of Imperial Ministers residing in Esperance.
But service is not this kingdom’s only point of pride. There are several 3rd-level knights in both combat and ministry, all of whom are willing to teach whatever they know. The arts are making a resurgence after a lull in activity. Target archery is not allowed most of the parks, so the archery competitions are always creative, inventive and a lot of fun! http://www.adrianempire.org/locations-esperance.php
