Houses

Patrilineal family name-based Houses began to see popularity among royalty and nobility starting in the early twenty-sixth century, particularly in Tynwë. Matrilineal Houses following a similar concept had been used in Svergurd for more than a thousand years earlier, however, beginning with the founding of House Sakiah by Zoënicia I in 1396; and before that, matrilineal and patrilineal Houses had both existed in the days of the Qinjin Empire.
