Dynasty (Eurth)

A dynasty is a sequence of leaders from the same family, usually in the context of a feudal or monarchical system, but sometimes also appearing in elective republics and business. Alternative terms for "dynasty" may include "house", "family" and "clan", among others. The dynastic family or lineage may be known as a "noble house", which may be styled as "imperial", "royal", "princely", "ducal", "comital", "baronial" etc., depending upon the chief or present title borne by its members.

A ruler from a dynasty is sometimes referred to as a "dynast", but this term is also used to describe any member of a reigning family who retains a right to succeed to a throne. In historical and monarchist references to formerly reigning families, a "dynast" is a family member who would have had succession rights, were the monarchy's rules still in force.


Dynasties have sometimes been used by historians as a framework through which historical states have been understood, including periodising the histories of many civilisations, using a framework of successive dynasties.

The Thafonological term 'rote dynasty' is used in respect to Ancient Thafon to describe confirmed familial relations between ruling monarchs. Historians have identified at least seven possible dynasties that ruled over Thafon, especially during the Early and Late Patriarchy eras.
