Seneschal of the Citadel
From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
(Redirected from Seneschal)
Seneschal is a position within the order of the maesters, charged with the governance of the Citadel, the headquarters of the order, located in Oldtown. The post of Seneschal lasts a year and is chosen by lot among the archmaesters, the topmost members of the order. Most archmaesters consider it a thankless task that takes them away from their true calling.
Petitioners seeking audience with the Seneschal are greeted by an acolyte that acts as gatekeeper at the Seneschal's Court.
The current Seneschal is Archmaester Theobald, chosen after the senile Archmaester Walgrave drew the first lot. His predecessor was Archmaester Norren.
