I’ve misplaced my reference copy of Oath of Fealty (there are copies around somewhere, but…it’s Lazy Day) and cannot remember the name of the functionary in the palace in Vérella who’s in charge of the treasury.    This would be when Dorrin delivers the regalia.    I think that’s the first instance of this person showing up, but I don’t have a name in the Names file, or a title.  And though I’ve tried to go through the novel’s own master file…my eyes are glazing over.    If someone’s got a reference from one of the other volumes, that’s  also great.

    The Master of Ceremonies takes Dorrin and the regalia to the Treasury, then summons the Seneschal to inventory the items. I don’t see a name, just the title.

    Oath US edition hardcover page 455 says the seneschal no name given.

    Yay! Thank you! Thank you both! Exactly what I needed to know. (Racing back to CROWN ms. to insert correct term *and put it in the Names file!)

    It is clearly stated in Oath that the Seneschal is in charge of the Treasury, in particular of taking inventory (the Master of Ceremonies is quickly shown the door, before being able to see the Regalia).

    I don’t have my copy of Limits to hand, but seem to remember that when Camwyn has a session in the Treasury about counterfeiting, one or more of the Treasury staff are mentioned by name. Possibly not the Seneschal, though.

    In LoP there is a steward mentioned.

    Besides him, you only have Cam’s tutor and a Master from the money-changer’s guild who is there to explain coin tests (with a nice pointer about a certain special ability of a certain someone, won’t say more, as this is not a spoiler thread)

    The only “official” was the steward, who had the keys to open the treasury and he wasn’t named.
