Her Grace the Duchess von Glitz, Knight of Ankh-Morpork, CME, Ambassador to Uberwald, MA

The Duke Arnulf von Glitz, having lay claim to Glitz after a battle with the former Duke von Glitz during the War of 1974, became corrupted by the constant threat of vampires attacking his Duchy. Come to be known locally as the “Mad Duke”, Arnulf von Glitz sent both his children Aell and Ilidus away to live with his wife’s family shortly before the town became overrun by vampires once more.

Though the history has been lost to time, the Duke’s daughter found her way to Ankh-Morpork, where she studied with the School of Assassins until her eventual return to Glitz in 2023 where she reclaimed the town from the undead. Though unconfirmed, rumours that the late Duke von Glitz was still alive on Aell’s return to Glitz continue to circulate, though of course the Duchess refutes these.

Since the Duchess returned to Glitz, the economy has flourished, with regular trade happening between Glitz and Ankh-Morpork.
