Win or Die
The Small Council
The Small Council exists at the King’s sufferance in whatever size and capacity the King finds most suitable to assisting his rule. Any members of the Small Council may be appointed or removed at the King’s sole discretion.
The traditional positions include the Hand of the King, the Master of Coin, the Master of Ships, the Master of Whisperers, the Grand Maester, the Master of Laws, and the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard.
Each position is assumed to act on the authority and power of the King, and may onlybe countermanded or vetoed by the Hand of the King or the King himself.
