The Dominion of Levant was founded about three hundred years before current events – i e, roughly 1000 a.D. in the Praesi calendar – by the first Grey Pilgrim and his band of five. After they had driven out the Principate of Procer they each came to rule one part of the country. The Pilgrim, being their leader, was granted the title of Seljun, and it has been held by his descendants since then. It is, however, not inherited but only granted by the consensus of the Majilis – the heads of the five families – and from a technical viewpoint it has always been mostly ceremonial.
