Houses of Note

Houses of note in Tyria can generally be divided into two types, merchant houses and noble houses. Noble houses are houses that have been granted title and lands by the crown. Merchant houses, however, are simply houses that have gained great prominence through wealth from trade and purchased holdings. While commoners frequently refer to members of merchant houses by the same honorifics properly used to address nobles, it is technically incorrect to do so, as merchant houses hold no titles.
