| ||A vassal duchy of Nilfgaard, widely considered a beautiful, fable-like land where everyone is eternally tipsy.|| |
|- Game map description|
The Duchy of Toussaint is a small duchy within the Empire of Nilfgaard, famous for its wines, enabled by the volcanic soil. This mountainous place is ruled by Anna Henrietta during the events of the games and novels. Toussaint has no military or an army of its own, nor a police force, just a few regiments of knights-errant watching the borders and roads, though their attention is said to be keen.
Tradition is a holy thing in Toussaint, meaning holidays, the most important of them being Wine Vat, are keenly observed.Interestingly, although considered a province of Nilfgaard, the Nilfgaardian Empire does not tend to impose imperial authority on the affairs of Toussaint and for the most part does not violate its borders.
National emblems Edit
The coat of arms for Toussaint is not actually described in the novels. This particular coat of arms was designed by our resident heraldry and Witcher expert Mboro. The second was inspired by a Czech concept and redesigned by Juraj103.
Flag of Toussaint by SMiki55 is based on the icon of the Duchy present on the in-game map from The Witcher 3 with the second expansion installed.
Known Toussaintois Edit
Cities, keeps and castlesEdit
Most often located in the small castles.
Toussaint is the main setting of the second and final expansion for The Witcher 3. In the expansion, the Toussaint map is divided into a number of regions:
- Toussaint is the French name for the "real world" Catholic holiday celebrated on November 1st, All Saints' Day. It is also the name of a commune in Upper Normandy in the northern part of France.
- In the Witcher 3 expansion Blood and Wine, many of its inhabitants will speak French at times. This includes grammar; one letter mockingly calls the Italian wine Est est (Latin for "is is") "Était Était," French for "was was" or "used to be used to be."
