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.
Presently, the House is just completing a time of transition as yet another new figure within the family has received the mantle of leadership; the 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.
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.
After Guild (AG) 283 Duke Senshisai Ginaz succeeded in forming a minor fief on
the southern continents of Grumman. As a result, relations between House Moritani and House Ginaz deteriorated.
337 The Great Convention is ratified. One of the delegates was
Mateo I, who worked to give the Emperor more power over the Houses. He was greatly derided by his fellow delegates, and was soon afterwards assassinated. His son, Valentinian, was granted to have the hand of the Emperor's daughter, Victoriae. Moreover, the Moritani's fief was elevated to the status of a County. This not only helped to introduce the Moritani into the Imperial bloodline; it also paved the way for the Moritani finally being accepted as a House Major.

largely due to the support of Emperor Saluso III.
