Powerful magisters in Pentos elect the Prince of Pentos and sometimes lend money. In Braavos, magisters participate in the election of the Sealord. While Lorath is nominally ruled by three princes, the city is truly ruled by a council of magisters. The magisterial council of Norvos is subservient to the bearded priests of that city. Conclaves of magisters rule Lys and Myr, and a similar group chooses the Archon of Tyrosh.
