Sangre azul

Post  Pishkirlin on Sun Aug 31, 2008 8:31 am

Blue blood is an English idiom recorded since 1834 for noble birth or descent; it is a translation of the Spanish phrase sangre azul, which described the Spanish royal family and other high nobility who claimed to be of Visigothic descent, while their subjects were largely of mixed descent (Iberian, Celtic, and Roman). There is no connection between the phrase and the actual blood color of nobility; however, in the ancient and medieval societies of Europe, much of the upper class may have had superficial veins that appeared blue through their untanned skin, in contrast with the working class of the time, mainly agricultural peasants.

The Sangreazul is the basic unit of nobility in the Kingdom of Ascalon.

Missions, quest and stories award to the brave knights a certain amount of sangreazuls that the College of Arms measures in order to grant a title.

The table below shows how many sangreazuls are needed for each title:

Prince 1000
Duke 500
Marquis 400
Count 300
Viscount 200
Baron 100

Blue blood in your profiles

Starting from today, forum profiles of blue-blooded people will show their amount of sangreazul.

An easier way to show off check how noble one is.
