* SheIsTheKing: Type 3. The sovereign of Branion is the Aristok, period, regardless of gender. Which makes sense since the first titleholder was a woman. Princes, Dukes, Knights, etc can all be female. So can the Essusiate [[ThePope Pontiff]].

* RequisiteRoyalRegalia: Plenty, but particularly the [=DeMarian=] [[ManInAKilt Plaide]], won from the deposed royal family of Heathland. The Heaths, once in rebellion, go to the extreme of sending a herald into the Aristok's camp and ''formally demanding it back''.

to:

* ReligionIsMagic: Triarchs believe the prophetic Sight to be a gift of the Flame, and Seers are usually priests or holy warriors. While Essusiates refuse to use the Sight, they do have rituals that can be used in battle to weaken the enemy or strengthen their own side.

Added DiffLines:

* PrincelingRivalry: A major plot element in every book - Quindara is jealous of her brother Demnor; Ellisander is an EvilUncle and rival of his cousin Terrilynne; half-brothers Rhys and Tristan are at war; and Alisha doesn't seem to care that her heresy, if successful, will result in the deaths of her siblings and father.

** Explained in-universe as a way of cutting down on the number of bastards. This is especially important since the Aristok's succession is determined by the Flame passing automatically to the next person in line, and there's only [[OffWithHisHead one way to skip someone]].
