Houses of the Royal Family
As of September 2019, Five Houses make up the Lyteran Imperial Family. Of these five, three have claims to the throne, and the two without claims have no heirs, and are predicted to be extinct in the future.
- House of Banks - The Main House, comprises the largest part of the family. Two of the monarchs of Lytera have been of this house.
- House of Reynolds - The Secondary House. Has the most potential successors to the Throne.
- House of Houghton - The Newest Royal House, took the House of Bayliss's claim to the throne on September 20th 2019 after the Royal Wedding.
- House of Bayliss - The only house aside from the House of Banks to have a monarch on the throne. Had a claim to the throne until 2019.
- House of Forrest - The smallest house, and the only one with no claims to the throne.
Lytera's monarchy is a confusing tale. Until 2017, Amelia I was technically Queen, and was addressed as such, however, High Regent Marion, Regent of Lytera was officially in charge. The monarchy of the Kingdom of Lytera as it currently runs was established on the 19th of August, 2017 with the declaration of right by King Matthew. King Matthew attempted to clamp down on any dissident thinking, and led a two day reign of terror. After a argument with Grand Duke Amelia, he attempted to capture the Duke, but the Duke escaped, and rounded up his cousins, who were visiting. On the 21st of June, King Matthew was ousted from power after a day long battle. Amelia was crowned in the ruins of what would later become Koi Lake.
The terms of the treaty made Matthew be demoted to Duke, and lose his right to the throne. Until 2018, distrust still existed between the two, though improved relations have begun to shine through. After the Octoberist Coup Plot, Duke Matthew was stripped of his titles once again. The King's cousins are the current expected successors, and are well trusted by the king.
