History

House Carling has its origins in the Kherzari Hordes that followed Rickard Gerrell. Following Sandoval's Miracle they became followers of the One Faith and guardians of Holymount and the founders of its shrine to Saint Martha. Today they are one of Normont's more powerful families and one of the few with a knightly tradition.

House Relations

Tracano Queen Alysande : Anton’s treachery left this family grasping the wrong branch of the royal tree and our political ties to the Tracano aren’t as strong as we hoped they’d be when we wed one of their daughters. Still, royal blood is royal blood and we’ll do our best to sing the Rose Queen’s praises and sweep our connection to the kingdom’s thorny past under the rug like our forefathers did with their heathen heritage.
