The Kings Moot is a planned gathering of the thirteen sovereign leaders of the Free Kingdoms of Engelain, in order to elect a High King to govern over the entirety of Western Engelain should an external threat of significant force be found- in all cases, this has been war against the Tyrannian Empire, though the election of high king is not necessarily limited to this in future. There have been three kings moots since the founding of the Free Kingdoms, and thus three High Kings.

As the first high king, Dwail Shadwfoot, declared himself to the position long before there were any actual kings in the region, he held the first kings moot after his victory over the Tyrannian Empire and the successive secession of the Free Kingdoms. It was there that the individual kings drew up the boundaries of their lands, accepted the right to rule of each individual king, and ratified the rules and circumstances for when a kings moot could be called, and the role of the high king in the future of Engelain. The first kings moot was attended to by:

The bandit king, to whom Selathon was granted and whose symbol is the wolf

The pirate king, to whom Trigonia was granted and whose symbol is the albatross

The traitor king, to whom Rickslanding was granted and whose symbol is the siren

The witch king, to whom Gaules was granted and whose symbol is the fox

The priest king, to whom the Holy Sovereignty of Engelain was granted and whose symbol is the griffin

The beggar king, to whom Speria was granted and whose symbol is the deer

The barbarian king, to whom Rigdon was granted and whose symbol is the bull
