On several occasions Tortall has been attacked by robbers and thugs from other lands, namely Carthak, Scanra and the Copper Islands.
The Tortall is home to a number of land forms and waters. The Olorun River, the second of Tortall's biggest streams. Tortall's present dynasty is House Conté. The Tortall is a constitutionally based fiefdom and is governed by a sovereign and/or royalty, although there are no known Conté queens who have governed themselves.
At present, it is governed by Jonathan IV of Conté and Queen Thayet, who are the common leaders of Tortall. He has a premier and several counsels, the Lords' Counsel, the Counsel of Commons and the King's Priv.sel.sel. Sir Gareth served as Premier and Principal Advisor to the Queen during the rule of Jonathan IV.
Organised criminality exists in and around Tortall, namely the rogue's court. Tortall's laws are respected by the judges and the provostry established in the second cent. of the human era. Slaveism was banned in the third quarter by King Roger III's decrees after his boy was abducted and enslaved.
This prohibition states that all slavers must have left Tortall by 1 October 249, and all slavery sales and the sale of people is unlawful, except for family reunification - this case must be sanctioned by a Crown Judge.
While there was still a high level of hostility and sexualism, it was possible for working in professions that were later dominant of men. In the fifth-century women had no longer these privileges. Wherever they were, in many places they were regarded as the true possession of masculine members of the household.
By the middle of the 5th centuary, King Jonathan and Queen Thayet did what they could to improve the lives of their wives. There was much activity in the 450', especially from the temple of the Great Mother Goddess, to end the abuse against them. A number of issues remained in cases concerning nobles and ordinary wives, as the judiciary moved in favour of the noble.
Citizen's right campaigning was intimately connected to women's right campaigning in the fifth centuries of the HU, as many female citizens were suffering from both classicist and anti-woman legislation and suspicions. Ordinary females seldom won sexually assaults when the offender was an ordinary man, let alone a gentleman. Great Mother Goddess Temple were fighting for ordinary woman who had been sexually assaulted.
Most temple rulers became quite militarist in terms of fairness for ordinary wives, even if the perpetrator was a noble. As Keladry asked King Jonathan and Queen Thayet of Mindelan to amend a bill that measures ministers in coins and deprives them of their own agencies, King Jon said they would receive assistance from the Great Mother Goddess's sanctuaries as they would see it as a step forward for women's liberties.
In addition to the overlapping of womens and civil liberties, there have been changes that would help all citizens. Her Majesty Queen worked to give citizens, especially the poorest lessees of a aristocratic country, free education. This is a listing of the famous sovereigns of Tortall: Conté's Roger III reigned during Rebakah Cooper's reign.
End of the Tortall slave trade. The Gareth III of Conté, reigns after Roger II, his sire. Other than Queen Lianne, Thayet was referred to because she is co-ruler of Tortall with her man and has the same powers as the woman of the sovereign of the country. Tortall had been governed by the Conté dynasty for hundreds of years, starting with Jonathan I. No Conté Queen who reigned in her own right (suo jure) were ever referred to or depicted in any book.
Tortall's relations with its neighbours have changed considerably over the course of the ages. In the 300s many battles took place during the rule of King Jasson III, who was known as a conqueror. King Roald's rule is even tainted by battle, although he was known as "The Peacemaker" - although this nickname was mainly due to his peace-building in his father's captured land.
During the 200s HE, a conjugal union was tried between Galla and Tortall when Roger III marries a Gallan princess, Alysy. Being queen of Tortall, she was severely miserable and depressive as her husbands were involved with womanizing. Following the death of Queen Alysy, Roger II marries a Barzunni queen, Jessamine. They were more prosperous in their relationship and formed a powerful coalition with Barzun, especially as Queen Jessamine was encouraging King Roger II to assume a greater political influence as Tortall's ruler, and she gave him an inheritor, Prince Gareth, who would later become "Gareth the Strong", a notable leader in Tortallan affairs.
Barzunni's league did not last very long, as it was captured almost a hundred years later by King Jasson III, despite his Barzunni heir. Perhaps Jasson felt even better able to govern Barzun because of his kingly will. Yasson also captured the land outside Tortall and extended the boundaries from Tortall to Scanra and Tusaine.
Tortall's relation to Tusaine began in the early 400s when the Tusaine war erupted in a battle for the Drell River basin. Tortallans were the winners and they drew up a contract that would compel Tusaine never again to make a right to this area. The Great Southern Desert was invaded by King Jasson III without regard to the already existing humans, the Bazhir, and at first the Tortallans were extremely against them.
They were at pacifist terms when Jonathan became the voice of the tribe, when he was still the throne of Tortall. At one time he was the Emperor's queen, allowing the Bazhire men to begin their education as a knight of the empire. It was the first time that the Tortallans and the Bazhire clans, who were still enemies of the North, had built a link.
Though the Yamani Islands and Tortall were initially rather antagonistic, they formed a marriage union between their two states. A second-ranking Shinkokami was sent by the Islands King to wed Crown Prince Roald, King Jonathan and Queen Thayet's oldest heirs. In the immortal war, the Tortallans also obtained armed assistance from the islands.
It has a historical poor relation to the Copper Islands and Carthak, as state-sanctioned slave traders and freebooters would catch the Tortallans and resell them in their states. They were Ozorne Tasikhe and his Stormwinde, Copper Isles, Scanra and some rebels Carthakis, against Tortall and the Yamani Islands. Galla, Tusaine or Maren did not help Tortall.
It' s not known if any contracts were concluded, but Tamora Pierce said that King Jonathan was looking for a Scanran Princess for his second boy Prince Liam, and that would mean that he is interested in a marriage between Tortall and Scanra. It has several streets stretching across Tortall, as well as smaller streets in various towns.
Trotall has many different armies to defend the country: King's Own-Used is a rather pointless twig until Raoul of Goldenlake formed it and enlisted it from the Bazhir and the joint fractions of Tortall. Queen's Riders - Established by Queen Thayet, the riders are able to access less easily accesible places of Tortall, such as in the hills or in densely forested areas, as opposed to the stationary armies.

Immortal wars took place during the rule of Jonathan IV, heir to and follower of Roald I. Great wars between Tortall and Carthak, Scanra and the Copper Islands.
These last three lands teamed up with Uusoae, the Queen of Chaos and some other unsavoury species of immortal, giving the name to the conflict. The victorious team was Tortall and his associates. The first Scanran was held in the early 460' between Tortall and Scanra. Rathhausak wanted to penetrate far into the north of Tortala and used metallic marauders, known as killers, to achieve this objective.

In spite of the intervention of the deities in the life of many mortal people, religious life is not an unbelievably important issue for the Tortallans, unless they themselves are priests or priestesses of a deity. The Tortallan can go to a church and occasionally say a prayer, but visiting such church ceremonies on a daily or daily base does not seem obligatory for many Tortallans.
Outside a place of adoration is customary for Tortallans, and regular ity of prayers integrates the faith into our community, as distinct from obligatory one.
