The Founding Fathers were the political founders of Lovia and Noble City. In its strictest sense, the term applies to eleven men and women who arrived on Peace Island on the first journey of the Francis II to the Lovia Archipelago, led by Arthur Nobel. These men and women built the first settlement, now known as Noble City, founded the ancestors of many present-day institutions and organizations, and determined Lovia's course for many decades.
In a broader sense, the term applies to all people who arrived on the archipelago during the first years of Lovia's existence, i.e. people who arrived on the first journeys of the Francis II and other boats. This broader sense is however not used by historians; it is merely used by Lovians to narrate their family history.
Among the unofficial or later 'founding fathers' are Sir John Lashawn, Edward A. Ramsley and Alexander Bennett. These people are not founding fathers in the original sense but are well known early settlers.
Although the founders of Lovia are called "Fathers", it must be noted that there were two women among the original founders, and many others on later journeys. Also many of the early settlers where accompanied by their spouses known as Pioneer Mothers.
