The Midlands Histories
For ages the eladrin have lived in the realm of Faerie. Though they are nominally recognized as the rulers of that land, they hold that position only because among the fey, they are the most organized. All of eladrin society is divided into Courts. Their kings and queens change with the passing of the seasons; they and their corteges comprise the Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter Courts.
Other, lesser Courts also exist to fulfill certain roles in eladrin society, for example: The Court of Stars, and the Court of Misrule. Most people who are not eladrin have only heard of the Court of Seasons, if they know anything for certain about these fae. The eladrin do not live in the middle world in any significant numbers. Those who do rarely discuss the intricate workings of the Courts for reasons of honor and pride.
