The Ascension of House Atreides can be traced to the marriage of Paul Atreides to Princess Irulan Corrino after the Fremen defeat of the Sardaukar on the Plains of Arrakeen. Irulan Corrino was the eldest daughter of Shaddam Corrino IV, who had been utterly defeated in the Arrakis Revolt.
Powerful House Harkonnen, who had been allied with House Corrino, were destroyed concurrently on the desert world. Another powerful House, House Vernius of Ix, was embittered towards House Atreides, but led by under-siege noble, Bronso of Ix; whose animosity towards Paul's rule did not openly surface until the early 10,200s. Alia Atreides, as Regent, captured Bronso, and had him executed in [[10,201 AG.
