The Fremennik Grunnloven was a document written by Haakon Steinsson, which was announced following the Polemistic victory at the Siege of Rellekka. It acts as a written constitution for the new Polemistic Fremennik Dominion, conferring power on the Jarl and his Thanes as a unit called the Radet. It also set up a set of rights of the Fremennik people under the new Dominion, legitimising it as a fully functioning nation state. It was, in part, inspired by Steinsson's earlier Declaration of Independence.
