Free Cities

There are a number of independent city-states (or Free Cities) in the region as well. These cities have stood for ages and been possessed by various empires and kingdoms for ages. At present, they are essentially totally independent, and have quite distinct characters. Many kingdoms try to annex them as they are usually powerful trade centers. They are often the first dominions lost, however, as they tend to have a very independent spirit.
