No, they are The merchant alliance.
Go back to ep 3. they control 60% of all wheat trade (pretty much anything that isn't local) and if so desired are powerful enough to dethrone nearly any of centrals kings and according to Maou human life rests on "this monster's back". They are centrals suply lines. You also assume they will have the needed money to pay people to do anything. They have a nasty inflation spiral going and reniging on contracts doesn't set much trust with the mercenary armies the central lords use.
