Old Valyrian

Old Valyrian is the name given to the Latin language in the reality of Valyrian lore. This is drawn from Valyria’s design concept as a feudal kingdom in an era succeeding a golden era of classical civilization. The feudal administrations pale in comparison to their imperial predecessors, but they try to maintain some semblance of the old systems.

The practical, out of game purpose for adopting Latin for such things as ranks and social classes is that it can serve as a “generic” terminology for a kingdom made of different racial backgrounds and different duchies with their own lore variations.
