Navy Treasure Fleet Emblem.jpg

The Royal Navy of Great Britain & Ireland is the navy of the British Empire. It is the largest and strongest navy in the world, with the next following (Spanish) unable to match the size and prowess of the navy. The Royal Navy has been a conquering force, a peace-keeping tool, and a path-finder to many strange new lands. Always serving the Empire, the Royal Navy has rarely tasted defeat in it's long-lasting life. If you should ever find yourself aboard a vessel that is enemy to the British Empire, you would do best to pray to whatever god you have.

The First Lord of the Admiralty is the high-commanding-officer of the Board of Admiralty. Every battle, skirmish, refueling, or otherwise military process performed by the Navy is ran through him. The First Lord of the Admiralty is currently Lord Nathaniel Joseph Garland I, more commonly known as Sven Daggersteel.
