On this Day, the second born of House Vansen, Elder Vansen was wed to the Duke Intidus Beris, eldest brother to the King of Berid, and assumed heir to the throne at his brothers passing.
The arraignment was met between the Kingdom of Berid and the high court of Helios as a means to ease the growing tension between the two nations, and give some stability to trade and peace in the region. The Vansen historically had not been as involved in the conflict with Berid as they were one of the two realms that were the furthest from them, the other being Cereletir. Elder was the only unwed and was viewed as the perfect choice.
Her Blood Touched heritage was kept away from the Berid and while teh rumor of all of Vansen's nobles being blood touched was well known, it was not something easily proven and Elder was one of the few Vansen children who kept off the social radar of the realm so she was widely unknown.
The Wedding was done in Berid, and was attended with representatives from all of the great noble houses as well as many of the Helian Trade Families and organizations as they stood to gain the most from the union .
The Union was announced with the two having shared title.
Duchess Elder Vansen, Helvarin of House Vansen
Helvarin Intidus Beris, Duke of Berid
