“A free city, paying no taxes and owing no homage to the Nobility was groundbreaking and a threat to the society wheel.”
As such, it was the wealth Menni Jes gained in 1207 that laid the foundation for the city to escape the grasp of the nobility. But it was a long and dangerous process.
In 1220, the city elected Menni Jes as Mayor Tri-M. and with tremendeous effort and careful balance, he began unfolding his plan. But even though they, as such, were ready to break off from the King in 1225, It was not before 1230 that they announced the break, both to their local king and from the grasp of king Nefius who had plans for all Markeoy.
Not only did Menni Jes, prior to and in his time as mayor, buy property, He also created a network of informants, agents, spies, and a security force that, in time, merged with the town militia and a few landless nobles, forming the Bulls Order. We know now that they were also backed by at least one of the Hordes. and the future High King.
The city was governed by a council led by Mayor Tri-M, and their independence was secured by the Bulls Order. Who is now holding the reins and protecting the rebuilding is somewhat uncertain.

Paying no nobility for protection, they uphold their own justice system, far more liberal but also harsh than anywhere in The Realm. .
