House Borealides is the current imperial family of the Palnorran Empire. Their claim to the throne is disputed by House Dukas, but few others can rival them. The Barangoi Guard are their own private household guard, recruited from among the fiercest warriors of the North.
Within the Palnorran Empire, it is commonly accepted theological belief that Dyovis has chosen House Borealides to rule, and that Leon VI the Wise is divinely appointed to rule. Challenging this appointment is not only treason, but sacrilege against the Hierarchy and Dyovis. Interestingly, the Hierarch in Norra may not share this view, since the teaching there is that it is the will of Dyovis that the Hierarch rule both the temporal and spiritual worlds. This may be the beginning of a schism between the Hierarchy in Norra and the Hierarchy in Palnorra.
