Houses Major by Rolf Traber

House Major or Great House refers to one of the main houses or communities of the Landsraad from the Dune franchise. Typically, a House Major was a familial dynasty that ruled a planet or a planetary system. During the time of the Padishah Emperors, this usually took the form of a fiefdom handed down by the Emperor himself.

A House Major that ruled a planet was ruler of that world, and charged by the Emperor to uphold the laws of the Imperium, and the galactic order of the Faufreluches. A House Major would usually have its own standing army, flag, symbol, coat-of-arms, and representative colors. It was said that only the combined military power of all the Houses Major in the Imperium would have been enough to defeat the Sardaukar armies of the Corrino Emperors. Thus, a delicate balance was struck between the Houses Major and the Imperial House, since all the Houses Major were never expected to ally themselves together against the Emperor, or anyone else. Indeed, during the time of the Corrino Empire, the majority of the Houses Major seemed to be preoccupied with petty squabbles.

Each House Major maintained trade and business interests, and some Houses Minor could, over time, be granted House Major status through amassed wealth from enterpreneurial endeavors.
