Fjǫrleif Hallbjörnsdóttir (born 1606) is a former member of the Royal Family of Elwynn and a former Prætor from 1625 until her exile from Shireroth due to the Auspicious Occasion in 1651, making her the longest serving prætor in Shirerithian history. Also, she served in several imperial governments as Minister of the Interior 1629–1639, Minister of the Exterior 1639–1642, 1648–1650, and Minister of Military Affairs, 1650–1651.

She also was the Kaiseress Companion of Shireroth during the reign of her father Kaiser Hjalmar.


Fjǫrleif was born on the Isle of Finistère, a district of the Storish jarldom of the Sólareyjar, from the common-law marriage between the Storjarl Hallbjörn Haraldsson and Lady Mallymkun de Béthune.

The Lady Esther Ayreon-Kalirion was quite briefly, until her death, Fjǫrleif's stepmother after the former had married the latter's father.


Aside from her deceased step-brother the Prince Jonathan of Elwynn, Fjǫrleif has two younger half-brothers: Noah and his younger twin the late Audun Joel.

Since the year 1642 the Fjǫrleif also has a younger sister as a consequence of her father the Storjarl Hallbjörn Haraldsson, Jarl of the Seven Ports, adopting the Lady Inga Njállsdóttir‎ of the House of Kaupsted through the decree of her brother King Noah of Elwynn, the Lady Inga upon the aforesaid adoption becoming Inga Hallbjörnsdóttir and a Princess of Elwynn. The adoption took place at the supplication of the Princess Fjǫrleif and the Lady Inga, between whom had grown such strong bonds of affection that wanted to spend the rest of zir lives as sisters, and the subsequent successful Petition for Adoption to the White Orchid Throne by the Storjarl Hallbjörn Haraldsson.

Public Service

By her Froyalanish peers, Fjǫrleif was widely considered a very competent administrator with a strong grasp of culture, business and politics, who possessed considerable insight into what made a country run. She had served the Imperial Republic of Shireroth as well as the Elwynnese royal government in various capacities. Outside of these circles, she was mostly known for her extravagance and fondness of pageantry (the Prætor's fourteen-deck yacht being an infamous example).

In Elwynn, Fjǫrleif's highest position was that of Princess of Anun, the title for the Royal Governor of the Amokolia. She was also member of the Council of Eliria, the council of advisors of the King of Elwynn. She also served as Steward of Elwynn and as Dean of Rhetoric in the Board of Governance of the People's Academy of Elwynn.

At the Imperial level of government Fjǫrleif served as Minister of State, Minister of the Interior, and Minister of the Exterior, as well as Prætor of the Landsraad, President of the Elwynnese senate, and member of the Imperial Advisory Council.


At the time of the Auspicious Occasion, Fjǫrleif's full titles were: Imperial Chieftainess of Eidsivarike, Arvjarla of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms, Storjarla of Stormark, Lady Imperial on All Continents, Crown Princess of Ravaria, Princess of Elwynn, Princess of Anun, Princess of the Storish Bilander of Anglethyr, Bondegard, Bosworth, Gascogne, Gascony, Guernsey, High Queen Asa Land, High Queen Hervör Isle, Humlebæk Island, Lady Gudrun Isle, Los Bananos, Lyngelan, Marthunia, Merlaide, the Old Sea Fortress, Østfold, Sicilia, the Suðreyjar, and Thydtwinnster, Duchess of Vattnaland, Llængjarla of Elwynn, Earla of Lyonesse, Countess of Northshire, Countess of Arietta, Countess of the Lady Esther Isles, Lady of the Holy Lakes.
