The Persican nobility are the Noble Houses and Peers of the Star Kingdom. The nobility has played a major role in shaping the history of the star nation since the Technomantic War. Scions of noble Houses may stand for appointment to the legislative Circle of Archons or House of Barons, dining rights in the House of Lords, position in the formal order of precedence, the right to certain titles, and the right to an audience with the monarch. About a third of privately-owned Persican land is owned by the noble Houses. House Corvida has solely reigned as monarchs of the Star Kingdom since its Unification in 2953, ten monarchs over 465 years (seven kings and three queens).
