I. Foreword from the Editor

Unlike most other Human Kingdoms with the exception of Dalaran, Kul Tiras never developed into a hereditary monarchy with a King and Queen. Instead, Kul Tiras is ruled by Noble Houses, each of which controls a certain aspect of Kul Tiran society and together form the governing rule of Kul Tiras. In this tome we shall cover the various Noble Houses, their areas of influence and their place within the power structures of Kul Tiras.

II. House Proudmoore

House Proudmoore is the most powerful of the four noble houses of Kul tiras, and splits power with House Ashvane in the capital city of Boralus along the shores of Tiragarde Sound.

The Proudmoores run the military. The Navy, City Guard and Marines all answer to Lady Admiral Katherine Proudmoore. Technically, she runs the entire nation from Proudmoore Keep in Boralus.

Lady Jaina Proudmoore has lived in exile from Kul Tiras after her direct involvement in the death of her father, Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore, at the hands of the Horde during the first Siege of Theramore in Durotar at the end of the Third War.

III. House Ashvane

House Ashvane shares control of Tiragarde Sound and Boralus with House Proudmoore, and controls the wealth of Kul Tiras. The Ashvane Trading Company holds almost all of the official state contracts for trade and manufacturing. They have steadily amassed power since Grand Admiral Daelin Proudmoore's passing. Practically everybody works for them in one way or another. Most believe they are corrupt, but without concrete evidence, they cannot be brought to Justice.

Though officially based out of Boralus, House Ashvane bought the prison of Tol Dagor and utilizes it as Lady Ashvane's personal fortress.

Lady Priscilla Ashvane is the ruler of House Ashvane. Her husband, Lord Ashvane, died in Theramore alongside Grand Admiral Daelin Proudmoore during the Horde's first siege of Theramore at the end of the Third War.

IV. House Waycrest

House Waycrest controls the lands of Drustvar to the west of Tiragarde Sound, a mountainous region providing most of the nation's ore, livestock, and many of Kul Tiras' mightiest warriors.

The Waycrest family have been strong supporters of Proudmoore rule for centuries, running their affairs from Waycrest Manor in Drustvar. House Waycrest led the war against the indigenous Drust when humans from Gilneas first arrived on the shores of Kul Tiras thousands of years ago.

V. House Stormsong

House Stormsong controls the fertile lands of Stormsong Valley to the north of Tiragarde Sound, home to numerous farms and shipyards. All seaworthy Kul Tiran vessels are blessed by their ancient order of Tidesages who commune with the sea to guide our legendary fleet.
