The Barrayaran Privy Council had been a governmental body, which was at least disestablished by Emperor Yuri Vorbarra, who performed a "Defenestration of the Privy Council" . The Privy Council wasn't re-established by following rulers of Barrayar.
Behind the scenesEdit
- On October 16, 2000, as part of a collection of answers to questions of Russian fans (see www.lavkamirov.com/bujold/enfaqlet.htm), these statements were made:
- [The Defenestration] was literally throwing people out of the window, of course. Why do you think he’s called Mad? Messy, that. Although the actual hands-on pitching of bodies may have been by his thuggish bodyguards or other assistants at his order, I’m pretty sure Yuri was physically present in the room at the time.
