Fifty Years of Terry Pratchett

Lord Vetinari

Lord Havelock Vetinari, He is the most recent of a line of unelected heads, he is the patrician and supreme ruler of the city of Ankh-Morpork, to which he is totally devoted.

Tall, thin, bearded and generally seen to be wearing black, he is a devious and cunning tyrant. Politics is the ocean in which he swims and it is true that he has banned street theatre and hangs mime artists upside down in a scorpion pit, opposite a sign that says ‘Learn The Words’

Lord Vetinari lives in what was once the royal family’s Winter Palace in Morpork, and manages the city either from a wooden seat at the foot of the steps on which is the ancient golden throne of the city, or more usually the Oblong Office, high in the palace.
