The Grand Duchy of Spring Flower was a Harchongese patent of nobility..
While initially only a minor barony before the serf rebellion in the Year of God 903, Pyangzhow was able to subsequently elevate Spring Flower to an earldom, then a duchy, and finally a grand duchy by professing loyalty to Emperor Zhyou-Zhwo. In reality, Pyangzhow was one of the many warlords that took advantage of the post rebellion chaos in North Harchong to establish a personal fiefdom in Central Harchong. Spring Flower began its expansion by murdering two of his neighboring barons and annexing their estates before seizing a free town.
In October of the Year of God 907, the Grand Duchy stretched across almost a hundred thousand square miles, stretching as far south as Kaisun and further than two hundred miles east of Fangkau. (TFT)
