The Senate of the Lakes, also known as the Senate of Hurmu and the Senate, is the legislature and sovereign of the Order of the Holy Lakes, and, by extension, Hurmu. The Senate is also the constitutional court of Hurmu, and it decides on rules governing the Order of the Holy Lakes.

The Senate consists of 18 senators. Senators hold permanent seats. Senators may gift or will away their seat. The Senate may also destroy seats or create new ones to be filled by internal election (i.e., the Senate elects a person to fill the seat) or external election (i.e., the adult members of the Order of the Holy Lakes elect someone to fill the seat).

The Senate was originally created by Prince Andelarion as the Electorate of Hurmu in 1514 AN. Quickly renamed to the Senate of the Lakes, it was in session from 1522 AN to 1536 AN (I), from 1542 AN to 1558 AN (II), and from 1570 AN to 1574 AN (III). Thereafter, it was in session from 1574 AN until 1599 AN (IV) as the merged Senate of Elwynn and Hurmu, and from 1599 AN as the Senate of an independent Hurmu once more, until 1603 AN (V), when it was effectively destroyed during the Hurmu genocide. After Hurmu's reunification in 1690 AN, the Senate has been in eight sessions: 1690 AN1695 AN (VI), 1695 AN1701 AN (VII), 1701 AN1707 AN (VIII), 1708 AN1712 AN (IX), 1713 AN1718 AN (X), 1719 AN1727 AN (XI), and from 1728 AN and onwards ((XII). The Eleventh Senate is expected to end in 1734 and be replaced by the Thirteenth Senate after the 1733 elections.

The First Senate began with 12 senators. The largest Senate occurred in 1598 AN with 25 senators (Fourth Senate), and the smallest Senate was also in the Fourth Senate, in its early years 1674 AN1681 AN with only four Senators.

Since the Senate's reestablishment in 1690 AN, the Senate first had 9 members until 1701 AN when it was doubled. Ever since, the Senate has had 18 members. On 1.I.1728, the Senate was expanded with two new members, giving the Senate 20 members. The Thirteenth Senate will expand the Senate with another 8 seats, giving it a total of 28 seats. However, 14 of them will be permanent seats, and only 14 of them will be elected.
