Marseilles is a very large town located on the Marseilles Peninsula, and standing as the capital of the Dutchy of Marseilles. Marseilles is dominated by the Samnites of whom are an Italic ethnic group of whom have held their position in the Region of Marseilles for their history, and the city remains their cultural capital as a people.

Marseilles has a healthy economy, which is mainly supported by trade, leather working and the financial support it receives from the Catholic Church in Rome for its continued defense of Christendom. The one major element of weakness for the economy of Marseilles is the basic lack of wood, due to the clear cutting of the forests of Marseilles following the coming of the Orcs, and while attempts are ongoing to reestablish the forests of Marseilles these are a long way off forcing the importing of nearly all wood required by the city and region.

Marseilles is nearly completely devout in their worship of the Roman Catholic Church and it was ironically through Marseilles that the first of the Roman missionaries would enter the region and spread into Bretonia itself.

Marseilles was first founded by the Samnites as they fled their homeland of Ravenna due to the migration and expansion of the Italians from Central Italy moving northward, and the city was founded inside a small bay and defended by two towers located on the two land strips allowing land access to the Marseilles Peninsula.
