Seneschal of the Citadel
Seneschal is a position within the Order of the maesters, charged with the governance of the Citadel, the headquarters of the order, located in Oldtown. The post of Seneschal lasts a year and is chosen by lot among the Archmaesters, the topmost members of the order. Most Archmaesters consider it a thankless task that takes them away from their true calling.
Petitioners seeking audience with the Seneschal are greeted by an acolyte that acts as gatekeeper at the Seneschal's Court.
