- The Great Clans of Tharda Introduction
- Power in Politics. A general explanation of the Senate as a whole and its various factions within. Includes links to the Register of the Senate in 720TR.
- Clan Jerdosta
Crest: Motto: Conquer the Unconquerable Registry: Palace of Gules, 662 Holdings: 24, 140 aces in Shiran District
Clan Jeredosta currently holds the most land held by any one clan in all of Tharda. The land they hold is relatively new and unsettled. The Jeredosta clan was founded around the year 658, during the reign of Colura of Coranan, the fifth Autarch (661-68) of the Thardic League. In return for mustering 500 men for Coluras armies, they were granted clan registry at the palace of Gules in 662.
- Clan Nordaka
Crest: Pale per fess gold and argent counter charged, a swan close proper. Motto: Prosper Registry: Palace of Gules, 603TR Holdings: Telen, Ramala, Coranan 21, 500 Acres
Clan Nordaka is the second largest landholder in the Thardic Republic. They are a relatively old clan who acquired the majority of its lands through marriages and inheritances. Only about 12% of their lands were ever actually purchased. While the clan existed at the Republics foundation, there is little written record of the clans existence before this time. Their crest was registered at the Palace of Gules in Coranan in 603TR. A few members of the clan's past are celebrated in local feasts, but no such celebrations are common outside of the clan seat of Telen.
- Clan Weijik
Crest: Per Bend Sinister Azure and Barry Sable and Gules Motto: Audaces fortuna juvat Registry: Palace of Gules 680TR Holdings: Coranan, Kuseme and Noru
Clan Weijik is a relative new comer to the political scene of Tharda; many believe they have Kaldoric roots. A wealthy, young merchant founded the clan two generations ago when, in return for his services to the country of Tharda, he received both land and title. Since then his progeny have tripled his initial land holdings. While the clan's name is not well known currently things have begun to change.
- Clan Asarn
Crest: Vert, Two Horses Rampent, Ors, Langued Gules Motto: Who Catches the Wind Registry: Place of Gules, 712TR Holdings: Coranan Province, Coranan district. Eidel Province, Kuseme district
Clan Asarn is older than its registry. For a long time the clan suffered under the idea that they were Autarchists. The clan is the remainder of two older clans who lost almost all their holdings when the Thardic League fell. These clans, the Transhar and the Atrian, intermarried to form Clan Asarn. They were fortunate during the wars with Kaldor and managed to survive the fall of the Thardic League, but only barely.
