Peace once more. Wedding bells end the war.
In an act of reconciliation and political expediency the opposing alliances have sealed a peace treaty following the marriage of Baron Bomburst's nephew Dietrich (a hare-lipped dullard previously used by his family as a hat stand) and the Dowager Countess of Groan's grand niece, Lucretia (proud possessor of an unfeasibly high forehead and a double squint). Following the four day wedding service, during which there were thankfully no fatalities, treaties were signed and new trade agreements negotiated. Should the loving couple be blessed with any healthy, if inevitably hideous offspring, it is to be hoped that these too will serve to strengthen the peace between all of the nations so long embittered in war.
