Is there any indication that these Noble Houses were inspired by the Houses of Frank Herbert's Dune universe? They're the first thing I thought of reading about the Tapani Sector.
Emperors' Houses Edit
Um, it says here that Leocald and Gorgano's houses are unknown, but it says everywhere else that the position of Emperor is hereditary. Wouldn't that mean that they're all descended from Shey Tapani and are thus all members of House Melantha? Grendelstiltzkin 14:04, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
