          All health and glory to her Grace, the gentle Melisande from 
          According to Vissevald (who during his second reign, enacted 
          the East Kingdom law limiting fighting to 18s-and-over) there 
          was one last one after us.  
          He made a loophole in the law that in effect said that 
          fighters who had participated in previous Crowns as under-18s 
          were exempt and could continue to fight before their 18th 
          He calls this the "Hanno Law", so I assume it was Hanno who 
          went on to win a Crown before his 20th birthday.  
          All this happened during the 12 years I was away in Mundania, 
          so I'm not too sure about it all.
          As an aside, I think the youngest Eastern King was Akbar, who 
          I seem to recall hearing was 16 when he won his first Crown.  
          Asbjorn was 19 at his first.  Akbar, Asbjorn, Fernando, Hanno 
          - I don't think there were any others.
