The House of Compton, Wittelsbach, Habsburg, and Hohenzollern, colloquially called the House of Compton for short, is a noble family and one of the most important royal houses in human history. Its primary name derives from the American and Earth imperial house, which succeeded through intermarriage to the inherited titles of three German royal houses. The throne of the Terran Empire was held by the House of Compton for the entirety of its existence from 2600 to 3275. The House also produced Emperors of Jupiter, Emperors of America, and Archons of Earth prior to its inheritance of the Austrian, Bavarian, and Prussian titles in the 2300s and 2400s, as well as the flowering of several cadet branches of ducal rank.

Through these mergers, the House of Compton can claim descent and relation to historical Holy Roman Emperors, German Emperors, Austrian Emperors, Emperors of Mexico, Kings of Bavaria, Kings of Prussia, and Kings of Hungary, Croatia, and Bohemia.

Ancestry

The House's origins lay in a 21st century American politician, Charles Edward Compton, who served multiple terms as President of the United States from 2026 to 2049 and again from 2069 to his death. On his deathbed, he was declared Emperor of the United States; a title revived by his son Sebastian in 2081, who became the first hereditary Emperor of the country. Sebastian's son married the heiress of the claimed Empire of Mexico, merging the dynastic claims, while the United States fully annexed Mexico in 2098. The House of Compton reigned in America and Mexico from 2081 to the country's formal dissolution in 2347.

The dynasty of Habsburg-Lorraine had come into existence in the 18th century. The senior Spanish line of the illustrious Habsburg dynasty went extinct in 1700 and the junior Austrian line went extinct in the male line in 1740. The dynastic holdings passed, following a succession crisis and resulting international conflict, to Maria Theresa of Austria. Her children founded a dynastic fusion of her line, and that of their father Francis Stephen of Lorraine. The Habsburgs had originated in 11th century Germany, and gradually accumulated primacy in Germany as Holy Roman Emperors, as well as hereditary rule over Austria, Hungary, Bohemia, Croatia, Italy, and Spain during the Early Modern Period. Their primary holdings in the Danube river valley existed from the 1520s to 1918 in various state-forms, was revived in the 2030s, and was abolished in 2347.

The House of Wittelsbach existed since the 9th century in Germany, and ruled various feudal domains until settling into the Rhineland Palatinate and Bavaria in the 13th century. Several collateral lines went extinct in the 18th century, leading to the unification of all Wittelsbach lands in 1778. The formation in 1806 of the Kingdom of Bavaria consolidated these lands into one kingdom. The kingdom existed until 1918, was revived in the 2040s, and was dissolved in 2347.

The House of Hohenzollern originated in Swabia in the 11th century, as did the Habsburgs. The Hohenzollern dynasy's fame, however, came from gaining control of Prussia in the 16th century and creating a Protestant military-state in northern Germany. Over time, Prussian dominance in northern Germany reached its peak in the 19th century, when the House of Hohenzollern orchestrated German unification in 1871 and were declared German Emperors. A collateral line, arguably senior, as it held ancestral Swabian lands, became Kings of Romania in the 1880s. The chief house remained the German imperial dynasty, however. The monarchies of Prussia and Germany were abolished in 1918, were revived in the 2040s and 2050s, and were dissolved in 2347.

In 2166, the House of Habsburg inherited the lands and offices of the House of Wittelsbach, combining them under Empress Sophie of Austria. Her father had been Emperor Charles III of Austria and her mother had been Queen Sophie II of Bavaria, a political marriage likened by many to the marriage of Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile. The result brought the two southern German royal dynasties into one large house.

Intermarriage between the House of Habsburg-Wittelsbach and the House of Hohenzollern brought the German nobility together, but placed the houses on a track towards unification. In 2311, Emperor Albert I of Germany (2282-2360) inherited the Austro-Bavarian titles. The childless Emperor Louis I of Austria (2220-2310) was the brother of Albert's paternal grandfather, Archduke Ludwig George (2221-2303). The titles would have devolved to Albert's father, Prince-Consort Francis (2244-2310), had he not died in the same train derailment that killed Emperor Louis. The death of both men left the crown inheritance in Albert's hands, unifying the Austrian, Prussian, and Bavarian crowns, including Hungary, Bohemia, and Croatia. Albert revived the title of Holy Roman Emperor in 2312, not without controversy, as a symbolic elected position as a "titular head of our commonwealth of Central European nations". Like the Mediaeval and Early Modern title, it was elected by customary noble sovereigns from Bavaria, Bohemia, Brandenburg, Hanover, Hesse, Salzburg, Saxony, Württemberg, and Würzburg. However, Albert and his line had hereditary control over five of the nine electoral votes, so the election became a formality to recognise his Crown's primacy over Central Europe, which consisted almost entirely of states in the Habsburg-Hohenzollern personal union.

Rise

The American House of Compton became predominant in Earth politics and in the Terran federal government in the 2100s onwards, often participating in the frequent reorganizations of Terran governments and constitutions. Several Secretaries-General of the Terran Confederacy and Presidents of the Terran Federation were from the House of Compton, often the first or second child of the incumbent American Emperor at the time of their term of office. The first and most prominent of them was Gaius Compton, a prominent Terran general who led UN forces to victory in the Interplanetary War, and was conferred the hereditary victory title Prince of Jupiter in 2199 prior to his accession to the American throne. This title was later raised to an emperordom upon the declaration of the Jupiter Trust Territory as a sovereign monarchy under the Compton dynasty.

The House of Compton was instrumental in forming the United Earth Nation, a union of all of Earth's states into a single member-state of the Terran Federation in 2347. As a consequence, the House of Compton became hereditary governors of Earth under the title Archon. This consolidated the delegates of previously separate Earth states into a single delegation, making Earth as a whole more powerful within the Federation. With the later development of the aristocratic Terran Dominion in the 2400s under the aegis of Archon Lucius Compton, the separate delegations within the upper assembly was abolished in favor of a nonpartisan upper house consisting of nobles and magnates from across Terran space. The Earth delegation still dominated the lower house, with its large population outweighing the populations of other member worlds and colonies. The head of state office, a Lord Protector serving for life and elected by a plenary assembly of the whole legislature, was often held by House Compton and its allies.

In the 2500s, the House of Compton intermarried with the House of Habsburg-Hohenzollern. The sons and daughters of Archon Archibald Compton (2479-2560) were married to the sons and daughters of Emperor Joseph IV (2488-2579) in the 2550s. Their dynastic union was completed with the two sons born of their eldest childrens' marriage: Tristan (born 2551) and William (born 2553), born to Empress Wilhelmina I (2521-2617) and Prince Andrew Compton (2520-2586). After Archibald' assassination in 2560, Andrew became Archon and steered Earth's delegation into advocating war with the Soviet Republic, whom were suspected of bankrolling Archibald's assassination. Andrew's policies led to a thirty-year war between the Dominion and the Soviets. Archibald personally led Earth's defence in the Battle of Sol, buoying his popularity. He died in 2586 and his eldest child, Tristan, became Archon of Earth and was elected First Lord of the Terran Dominion soon after. Popular opinion later surged against Tristan's mismanagement of the war, however, and mass protests broke out demanding his resignation. Tristan, for reasons still debated to this day, took his own life in January 2590. His brother acceded to the Archonate and was elected First Lord almost immediately.

Under William, the Dominion turned its war effort around and won spectacular victories. The war drew to a close within eight years of campaigning, and William voluntarily resigned the Lord Protectorate in early 2599. But the persistence of pro-Soviet insurrectionists, and the assassination of next two Lords Protectors in less than a year, led the Dominion parliament to consider making the Lord Protectorate hereditary to the House of Compton, to safeguard the succession of the head of state. William Daniel Francis Charles Compton was elected Lord Protector once more, and declared by Parliament to be the first Terran Emperor. In 2600, the Dominion was refashioned as the Terran Empire, hereditarily under the House of Compton.

Emperor of America

Charles Compton, who held the office of President of the United States from 2026 to 2049, and again from 2069 to his death in 2074, was declared on his deathbed President for Life. His son, Sebastian, President from 2077 to 2085, buoyed off the popularity of his father and his own wartime leadership to have himself vested with Presidential power for life, and was elected by the Senate to be the first of the new office of Life President. He took the title Emperor of the United States in 2087. His grandson added to the office the title Emperor of Mexico. From 2081 to 2347, the head of the House of Compton reigned as sovereign Emperor of America. These sovereigns were:

  • Sebastian I, Emperor of the United States (2014-2094), reigned 2087-2094
  • son, Edward I, Emperor of America (2057-2127), reigned 2094-2127
  • son, Charles II, Emperor of America and Mexico (2077-2158), reigned 2127-2158

  • nephew, Sebastian II (Gaius Sebastian), 2225-2325), reigned 2306-2325
  • grandson, Charles V (2276-2361), reigned 2325-2347

Prince/Emperor of Jupiter

George Gaius Compton held the hereditary title Prince of Jupiter from 2199, which became held by the head of the House in 2205 after he acceded the American throne. This title, however, was a peerage and did not entitle the holder to sovereignty over Jupiter. The third holder of the title uprated it to Emperor after the UN Trust Territory for Jupiter declared independence. The holders of the title to the establishment of the Earth Archonate were:

  • Gaius I (2140-2222), incumbent 2199-2222
  • son, Charles I (2169-2280), incumbent 2222-2280
    • third son, Prince Andrew (2197-2300)
  • son, Lucius I (2194-2302), incumbent 2280-2302
  • brother, Gaius II (2196-2306), incumbent 2302-2306
  • nephew, Gaius III (2225-2325), incumbent 2306-2325
    • son, Prince Lucius (2250-2320)
  • grandson, Charles II (2276-2361), incumbent 2325-2361

Archon of Earth

From 2347 onwards, the head of the House of Compton were hereditary Archons of Earth. These were:

  • Charles Lucius (2276-2361), reigned 2347-2361
  • son, Charles Victor (2301-2399), reigned 2361-2399
  • son, Charles William (2326-2440), reigned 2399-2440

  • son, Andrew I (2431-2511), reigned 2479-2511
    • son, Prince William (2460-2500)
  • grandson, Archibald I (2479-2560), reigned 2511-2560
  • son, Andrew II (2420-2586), reigned 2570-2586
  • son, Tristan I (2551-2590), reigned 2586-2590
  • brother, William I (2553-2632), reigned 2590-2632

Terran Emperor

The Terran Empire was, as first established, a constitutional and executive monarchy. The Emperor, embodied in William I and his heirs, were the "first servant of the people", an ideal hearkening back to French ruler Napoleon Bonaparte in the early 19th century. Despite this, the Emperor had to contend with feudalism and political disturbances, which reached their peak in the 2700s and 2800s. Constitutional and structural issues led to political gridlock that prevented the Emperor from exercising their domestic authority. Under the reign of Francis Charles VI, the Empire was reformed as a stronger parliamentary monarchy with the Emperor wielding supreme executive power and a parliament elected by proportional representation. This model lasted until the end of the Empire in 3275. The Empire was abolished in 3275 and its territories formed the core of the new Republic. The holder of the title, Maximilian Charles I, retained it--and all other hereditary titles of his house--as a peerage within the Republic's system of honours until abdicating them in 3292 in favour of his daughter.

Collateral lines

The House of Compton has produced numerous collateral lines throughout its long history. The earliest of these are the American royal dukedoms, descended from the children of Emperor Sebastian I and his wife, Princess Charlotte of Britain. Their eldest son, Edward Charles George William Compton, was created Duke of New England and Prince of Columbia as heir to the Empire. He ascended the throne in 2094 as Emperor Edward I of America, and bequeathed his dukedom to his second son, Prince Samuel, while the title Prince(ess) of Columbia became a courtesy title for the heir apparent to the American throne. A second principality was created to be tied into the dukedom, Prince of Massachusetts.

The other lines of Sebastian's children have continued their respective dukedoms. Their lines are:

Other titles

Sons and daughters of the Terran Emperors were generally granted dukedoms of their own upon marriage or, sometimes, upon birth. These titles were revived several times as often the holders of the titles died childless or lasted only a few generations. The eldest son or daughter of the Terran Emperor, who was heir apparent by birth, was always created Duke or Duchess of Saturn. The title Crown Prince(ess) was conferred by Act of Parliament at a subsequent date to the incumbent Duke of Saturn. Other dukedoms, typically relating to the planets of the Solar System, were created as needed.

Aside from the Dukedom of Saturn, these dukedoms were:

  • Duke of Neptune
  • Duke of Uranus
  • Duke of Pluto
  • Duke of Venus
  • Duke of Mercury
