The Baron of the Cleftlands is His Excellency Crispin al-Rumi.

Definition

A Landed Baron is a leader of the Barony and is referred to as the Baron of the Cleftlands or by the title Your Excellency.

The difference between the Baron and His Seneschal can be confusing to some, think of the Baron as the owner of the company and the Seneschal as the Chief Operating Officer. The Seneschal holds the keys to the castle, but the castle belongs to the Baron!

They ultimately receive this title from the hands of the Crown of the Middle Kingdom after a careful polling process of barony members. Per Kingdom mandate, the tenure of a Baron is no more than five years. As Baron, he may speak for the Crown including by presenting awards that have already been read in to Royal courts in a Baronial court. He may also make Baronial Awards as he sees fit and wear the coat of arms of the Barony as his own. You can also refer to the Baron of Cleftlands as "Cleftlands" or "Lord Cleftlands"

A Landed Baroness wears a gold coronet with six pearls, usually adorned with the arms of the Barony she represents.

By custom Baronies have both a Baron and a Baroness, this has not always been the case and some groups have had a single Baron or Baroness. Also the Baron and Baroness do not have to be an actual couple.
