Maecht maintains a pretense of autonomy where the citizens elect their king, but this king is a subject of Metinna's king, and both are subject to Nilfgaard's imperator.
King Akerspaark continued to rule after it was subjugated until 1258 when he died of acute pneumonia after being stabbed by hit men. An election took place and was won by Hoët, though Codringher suggested that Imperator Emhyr, who took back the Nilfgaardian throne just one year prior, have a deciding vote.
Sensing instability, Maechtian nobles, like Duke Rudiger, formed insurrection forces in Thurn but were soon put down by the Gemmerian Pacifiers in a punitive expedition. By 1267 Maecht was firmly bound to the Empire and its mercenaries partook in the Northern Wars.
The current coat of arms is the one described in the books (which the current flag is based on) while the one above is seen in the games.

- Duny claimed the people of Maecht were very superstitious, though this could have been a ruse to explain why he didn't want to go back home immediately after marrying Pavetta.
