Year 806 of the Second Age

The Year of the Looking-Glass

(474th Year of the 6th Unknown King of Duinnor)

The growing discontent with the King's Tenth results in a reduction of the trade and tax rates and other tributes to 1/100th and is thereafter called the "King's Own Penny," or kingspenny. Enforcement and collection of these taxes will continue to vex Duinnor due to the complexities of trade agreements, special favors granted by the Crown, and the logistics of transporting the collectors and the collected sums across vast distances (which requires armies of protection).
