The Godkings were a patrilineal line of male rulers in the nation of Khalidor. The position was held only by one bloodline: that of Roygaris Ursuul. A Godking would ascend to power usually through either high treason or claiming an empty throne (like Godking Wanhope did).

The Ursuul line was different from other Vürdmeisters in the ways that they were much more powerful than the average meister, and their Vir was concealable.
