Teddy Verstraet, Count of Lübeck. Nicknamed “The Merchant Prince” or “The Sea Lion” by his contemporaries, Teddy Verstraet is both the head of House Von Verstraet and the current Count of Lübeck. One of the great lords of The Kingdom of Aquitaine, Teddy Verstraet and his family are the wealthiest house in the kingdom after The House of Maher, or their overlords and the ruling family of Aquitaine. Although the Von Verstraets of Lübeck have always been the richest family after the royal family themselves, thanks to their ancient rights to a trade fleet outside the jurisdiction of the royal family, the fortune of the Von Verstraets under the reign of Teddy Verstraet grew exponentially with a colonial charter to establish trade posts in overseas territories in the name of House Maher and The Kingdom of Aquitaine. Apart from the fabulous wealth of his family and he and his highly lucrative colonial charter made with the permission of his overlords, Teddy Verstraet is one of the finest admirals amongst the great lords of Aquitaine. He is second only to Kelian Gerbolino, the current count of the isle of Poitiers. This illustration was made as a late birthday present for Teddy Verstraet, a friend in France.
