The Private Council (Dundorfian: Geheimer Rat) is the Dorvish equivalent of a privy council. It is sometimes known as the Secret Council or the Confidential Council by non-Dundorfian translators. Members of the Geheimer Rat are known as Geheimrat or Private Councilors. In January 3970 the Dorvish Social Nationalist Party proposed the "Law on the Dorvish Nobility" which granted the Geheimer Rat the ability to grant and maintain the tables of Dorvish nobility. This was seen as a token policy for members of the Lorman Cultural Organization who sought to restore recognition of the Lorman dominated nobility.
