House Moritani became as a recognized political entity at the time of the
  +
Battle of Corrin (88 BG), when, after they threw their entire support and
  +
resources behind Shesuet Corrino, the Landsraad forces were defeated and
  +
Shesuet ascended to the Lion Throne as the first Padishah Emperor. Shesuet
  +
recognized the Moritani contribution and granted the family the planetary
  +
fief of Grumman and the baronial title, which went along with it. Since that
  +
time, House Moritani has continued to prosper through its service to the
  +
Imperium, and is noted as one of the staunchest advocates of Pro-Imperial
  +
actions.

turbulence beginning with the assassination of Galeazzo V, the civil strife

of his son Cesare with the contender Vittorio, the abdication of the former,

and then finally the untimely death of the na-Count Agon Moritani.
   
'''House Moritani''' was a [[House]] Major during the time of the [[Faufreluches]]. Their ancestral home was the planet [[Grumman]]. House Moritani had a long-standing feud with [[House Ginaz]], which eventually saw the latter defeated in a [[War of Assassins]].House Atreides involvement in this war possibly was [[Duncan Idaho]]'s first real experience in mortal combat as he stated that his "sword was first blooded on Grumman".

TIMELINE
   
[[The Dune Encyclopedia]] mentions the house's ancestor [[Yukio Moritani]] on whose support an the campaign against rising [[House Ginaz]] to the status of [[House Major]] rooted the old enmity which finally led between open [[War of Assassins]] between the two.[[Keshas Zhorzh]] was said to have been an [[Assassin]] in service of the Moritanis.
+
Before Guild (BG)
  +
88 Battle of Corrin brought the Corrinos to primacy over the
  +
other houses of the Landsraad and brought about the
  +
formation of the Padishah Imperium. House Moritani
  +
supported the Corrinos wholeheartedly, at an enormous
  +
cost to resources and lives, and was rewarded by the
  +
Governorship of Grumman to Lorenzo XXV, making Moritani a
  +
House Minor.
  +
0 Spacing Guild and CHOAM combine with the Lion Throne to
  +
form the societal basis for the next ten thousand years.
  +
House Moritani is instrumental in the formation of the
  +
Spacing Guild, by selling off most of its spaceship
  +
research and development to the Guild and being allowed
  +
to continue to manufacture parts for the Guild
  +
Heighliners and developments in personal frigates. House
  +
Moritani also helps in the formation of CHOAM, and
  +
Bernabo III was the architect behind the idea for CHOAM
  +
Directorships, with the Imperium duly represented, and
  +
thus endeared the Moritani to the Imperium further as
  +
well as gained them one of the first Directorships.
   
The [[Prelude to Dune]] gives a differing account on the events which led to the war of assassins and eventual destructions of both houses.In this the Ginaz had originally been a neutral school of Swordmasters who almost by default became victims of the Moritani whose [[Viscount]] [[Hundro Moritani|Hundro]] was originally only involved in a feud with [[House Ecaz]].When House Moritani attacked the Ecaz heir on the neutral Ginaz training-world the Swordmasters expelled all Moritani students and officially accused and insulted Hundro Moritani who answered with an attack on the military not prepaired Ginaz world which killed more than a hundred Swordmasters.The alliances of the Moritani with [[House Harkonnen]] and of [[House Atreides]] with [[Ecaz]] also drew both houses into the war in which Hundro Moritani, after the death of his heir [[Wolfram Moritani|Wolfram]], suicidally drove his house to a violent end.

After Guild (AG)
