The House family is an ancient clan descended from a long line of noble European and Mediterranean families. Figuring heavily into Western history, the House family and its ancestors claim roles in many of the events that have shaped our world for more than 33 centuries. From ancient ancestors such as Pharoah of Egypt, Ramesses I and King of Persia Achaimenes to those in more recent times such as King of Scotland, David I and King of England, William I "the Conqueror", the House family ancestors have wreaked havoc, created beauty, destroyed nations, and built worlds.

Not all House ancestors have been so notorious nor had such an impact on the world, but each has contributed his or her knowledge, experience, and blood to the current generations of Houses giving this family its rich traditions, its proud history, and its promising future.

Much of the information that we have about the most recent ancestors of the House family comes from family stories, pictures, and books. Older information can be verified in history books and government archives. The data from the present until about the mid 1500's is quite reliable and is considered accurate. From the 1500's until the 10th or 11th centuries, the sources are still quite reliable, but their accuracy might not be as precise. From the 10th century until the 5th or 6th century, the data becomes more speculative and much of it lacks verifiable sources. Data earlier than the 5th century, while presumed accurate, mostly lacks verification.

Many pictures of House ancestors have been included here, whether photographs or paintings. Sometimes notable castles or other buildings are included as well. The hope is that these pictures and the descriptions that have been included will help to honor the contributions of the House family and bring these people to life in your mind.
