Jarrow is the royal clan of Jarrland and consequently the Kingdom of the Carmine Sea. While the Jarrow clan proper is very extensive, the royal House of Jarrow is limited to a few individuals. All members of the clan are however proud of their royal connection.

BranchesEdit

The Jarrow trace their history back to the old kingdom they call Zhaira and their line of kings. The modern family traces its descent from Eldin, Lord Jarrow, who first began the attempt to unify the kingdom in the 350s. There are two principal branches, descended from each of Eldin's sons.

House of AthelmarkEdit

Athelmark was Eldin's elder son and the first King of the Jarrs. He had two sons and a daughter, although only the eldest, Athelmere, provided any male heirs. The House of Athelmark are a diverse group, though they are foreign-minded diplomats and often powerful warriors. The senior descendants of this line (via Athelmere) are all also members of the Grant family, via Athelmere's wife Tempest.

The current head of this line is Alwyk Jarrow.

House of AlfwyrEdit

Alfwyr was the second King of the Jarrs, following his brother. He too had two sons and a daughter, though his first son and his descendants were barred from the succession for religious reasons. His second son Alfmark became king after Athelmere, though, since Alfwyr had Alfmark so late in life, he was raised alongside Athelmere's children.

Where the house of Athelmark have intermarried with many other royal families both human and demihuman, the house of Alfwyr have tended to marry only other Jarrs or fae. Descendants of King Alfmark will therefore have a much higher proportion of elven blood than is usual for Jarrs. After 516 the succession was reserved to this branch of the family.

The current head of this line is King Elwyn.

Succession LawEdit

The succession was originally confirmed by the Great Charter of 387 and followed the ancient practices of the Jarrow clan. The kingship alternated between the eldest male descendant of Athelmark and of Alfwyr. Male-line descendants were preferred. If a male line became extinct, males from the female line were eligible, then females from any line. If the lines of Athelmark or Alfwyr became extinct their claim passed to the descendants of their sister, and then to other members of the Jarrow clan and their relatives (most notably the Isling clan). The king must be a follower of the Lord of Fire or convert upon coronation. [1]

In 516 the succession was reformed, to account for the apparently imminent failure of the house of Athelmark and the absence of a clear successor thereafter. From 516 the crown is reserved to the male-line descendants of Elwyn, to succeed in order of seniority and thereafter to further descendants of King Alfmark. The king must be a follower of Panshén or convert upon coronation. They must also carry the Lord of Fire's blessing, as passed on by King Elwyr.

If the rightful heir is a foreigner, the Royal Council must approve their succession.

Only members of the family descended from that pair are members of this cadet branch, although it included the Emperor of Dawn Girard Serendel and was thus for a time the senior Serendel line. The imperial crown has now passed out of this branch. By Jarrow succession law the current head of this branch is Rayne, born in 432.

Jatten-SunderEdit
