Throneholders are citizens of Thrane who consider themselves Galifar Loyalists and wish to restore the nation to its original monarchical form of government, returning Diani ir'Wynarn to the throne as queen. Often these monarchists are nobles or former nobles who wish to restore their own power alongside the queen's. The nobles are very wealthy and have served the Thrane Wynaran line for generations, but low level nobles are very hesitant to join this group, fearing that they would be exiled like many others before them. They must, however, be discreet lest the theocrats of the Silver Flame who run the country charge them with treason. The Throneholders use subterfuge, espionage and political opposition to the theocracy government.
