The House of Gyoku is a Jingdaoese noble family, which traces its ancestry back to the House of Erasmus. Its founder, Yuling bat Erasmus (since 1659 also known as Yuling bat Gyoku), was for a short while the Heavenly Light of Jingdao. She was replaced in favor of her nephew, who had a direct claim to the Heavenly Throne (and whose existence was unknown, until 1659).

Special privileges

It's the only family which is - as cadet branch - allowed to use the 'bet' (for boys) or 'bat' (for girls) between the first name and surname. This privilege was, originally only used by the direct line of descendants of the House of Erasmus, but granted to Yuling for her proven service to the Empire. All descendants of the House also wear the honorary title Heavenly Prince.

History of the House

  • 1659: Cadet branch established and recognised by the Heavenly Court as the House of Gyoku.
