The monarchy in Liberl co-exists alongside its practical democracy, meaning that a portion of the kingdom's resources have remained property of the crown and its government. Even after the constitution establishing the mayoralties of Liberl was written, the royal family retained significant amounts of land.
The monarch of Liberl is therefore responsible for authorising, and recording that authorisation, the mine chiefs for a given excavation site. The Malga Mine in Rolent, for example, is technically property of the crown. Local miners can only mine legally with commission from the monarch.
One of the treasures of the royal family is the sword Celestial, which is said to be forged by a famous blacksmith. It can be bought on-board the Arseille during the Finale of Trails in the Sky SC.
Collaboration with the Septian Church
The monarchy of Liberl has worked closely together with the Septian Church for over a thousand years. They consider each other partners in maintaining peace and order in the kingdom. The current Archbishop Currant wishes to continue this development and seeks friendship with Queen Alicia II rather than a political alliance, in which he wishes to remain neutral.
Liberl's technological developments have been made possible through the capital investment of the royal family. In particular King Edgar III, the 25th monarch, was keen to advance Liberl's technology. He donated a large amount of money to the Zeiss Engineering Factory (ZEF) to boost the development of orbal technology in S.1160.
Although he passed away two years later, the ZEF completed the construction of its first orbal-driven clocktower in the City of Zeiss that year and in S.1164, construction of the moveable Langland Bridge in the City of Ruan is completed. A successful flight with the first orbal-powered airship, the Calatrava, was achieved in S.1168.
- Main article: Aureole
In order to safeguard the Sept-Terrion of space, Aureole, as was once sealed away by Celeste von Auslese, the royal family has passed down the following legend to keep the seals for the treasure in place:
“The Shining Ring shall bring catastrophe, condemning the souls of men to eternal purgatory. It has been sealed within the interval of the blackest dark, that we might retain our humanity.”
