House Sophian Vandamere

Descendant of Sophia Vandamere

– The Sophian VandamereS
the ruling family of Throne. Their bloodlines
can be traced to Sophia Vandamere, the first
Queen Mother of the Third Great Kingdom of
Throne. All king fathers and queen mothers come
from this branch of the royal families.

  • The ruling family has always been the
    Sophian Vandamere’s because they’ve always had
    an eldest daughter wear the crown. Some people
    has spread rumors that if the queen mothers of this
    line has a one or more sons before they birth a
    daughter, they kill the son and tell the empire
    it died in still birth. This rumor is not too
    far fetched, as over the 100 years of sophian rule,
    there has been a total of 6 reported stillborn
    deaths from the ruling family.
    The reason why this is important is because if the
    ruling class had king father who married a woman,
    that womans family now is the ruling family. And
    if the king father died, since all of his children
    would have the last name of their queen mother,
    the next in line would no longer be a vandamere.
    this could be one of the reasons why the empire
    is about to collapse.

Also, the Sophians are devout Reohmites and have
continued the long traditions that Reohmites perform
on a daily basis. It’s not bad, actually, it has
helped bring a certain kind of order to Throne. But
it is not look upon favorably if one isn’t as devout
as the Sophians. A gap is becoming noticable between
the practicing and non-practicing which may or may not
become an issue.
