Varying Types Edit
Powerful magisters in Pentos elect the Prince of Pentos and sometimes lend money. The title of the Prince bears almost no true power, operating largely as a titular position in charge of feasts and celebrations. When the city goes through hardship - such as after a lost battle, or during a famine - the current Prince is killed and a new one elected. Because of this, the title is often seen as a death sentence.
While Lorath is nominally ruled by three princes, the city is truly ruled by a council of magisters.
In Myr, the ruling council of magisters is called the Myriad, and together they make all decisions concerning the city. The title of High Magister, equatable with Sealord or Archon, was once used in Myr, but has been defunct for hundreds of years.
