L'Agnace is one of the seven provinces of Terre d'Ange. It is located in the south central part of the country, not far from the southern coastline. It was founded by Anael, who taught the people animal husbandry and farming. L'Agnacites are characterized by their love of the land. The City of Elua, the capital of Terre d'Ange, is located in L'Agnace.
L'Agnace is very fertile, and is primarily an agricultural region. The climate there is mild and temperate. The City of Elua lies in the southern part of the province. The Aviline River runs through the city before emptying into the ocean. Many noble families from outside the province, such as the L'Envers and the Shahrizai, maintain estates and hunting lodges outside the City. Imriel's estate of Heuze is located in L'Agnace, as is Lombelon which he cedes to Maslin.
Noble Houses Edit
Prior to Kushiel's Chosen, the ruling house of L'Agnace was Chalasse. In gratitude for House Somerville's service during the Skaldi invasion, Ysandre grants them the status of ruling house. It is unknown if this remained in place after Percy de Somerville's treason and Ghislain de Somerville's disowning of his family.
Another L'Agnacite house is Bretel.

Real Life Counterparts Edit
L'Agnace roughly corresponds to the real life provinces of Limousin, Auvergne and Rhônes-Alpes in France.
- ↑ Kushiel's Dart, "Chapter 61" — Of the Companions, Anael's gift was husbandry, and he taught much to mortals of the growing of good things and the care of the land. It made for a peaceful province, although L'Agnacites are fierce as lions when roused to defend their land,
