"But, if a crop should fail or a war be lost, the Magisters will slit the Prince's throat and choose another."
Jorah Mormont[src]

The Prince of Pentos is the nominal ruler of the Free City of Pentos. He is chosen by the Magisters of the city from among the Pentoshi noble families.

The Prince supposedly holds the powers of trade, justice, and war, and on every new year he must deflower the Maid of the Field and the Maid of the Sea to bring good fortune to the city. However, the title is mostly ceremonial and should a crop fail or a war be lost, the Magisters slit the Prince's throat and choose a new Prince.[1]
