Castaire Navy

The Marine Impériale is Empires principal naval warfare force. Naval forces are used in Castaire since Castorian I's grandfather, Charles, in the 10th century and from the early reign of Castorian himself, the Marine was engaged in maritime warfare.

The maritime supremacy of Castaire is ensured by over 300 warships and several thousands of smaller ships for supplement duties and similar things.

The Marine's professional head is the Amiral d'Empire, an admiral and member of the Privy Council of His Majesty The Empereur.
