Managed by the European Aristocrats project

Following is the current list of European Noble Houses. There is a separate list of Swedish Houses here.

These are all under the supervision of the European Aristocrats project. For discussion, post to G2G with the tag euroaristo.

Food for thought
There is a distinction between a Noble Family (a House) and Rulers of a certain region or country. For instance, the House of Plantagenet ruled England for many generations and the kings they have produced were called "of England" (like Richard III of England). But they sometimes also ruled other territories (eg. France or Ireland). But members of other noble families have also held the title "King of England".

In other cases a noble family can have ruled over a region or country, but are not identifiable by a distinct family name, but are simply named after the region they ruled over (eg. Champagne, Bourgogne, etc.). This creates the problem with naming the category, because we also have a main-category for Regions. For example [[Category:Bretagne]] refers to the region in France and not to those who ruled over the area.

For now this last group is listed here (incorrectly) as "House" until we have a suitable category to put these in. Wikipedia resolves this problem by enlisting 'Titles' as a separate category, eg. "King of England", "Lord of Ireland" (Richard III had both). This is also seen as a link in the Succession Box. The House is then used as a link in the Project box.
