Origin of the house

Recommended Posts


"Ayreon" is the Praeta spelling of the Elw proper noun Aireoon, which in turn is derived from the adjective/genitive aireoon, meaning "of the lions" (from aire, plural of ire, "lion").

It was chosen as the regal name in Shireroth of the former Shah of Babkha, Rashid Arsalani (also known as Richard Lyon), as a translation of his Babkhan dynastic name. However, given the deity Ayreon in Cedrist mythology, the name was deemed acceptable in the then-traditional parts of the Imperial Court. Names were supposed to reflect Cedrist gods, despite the non-Cedrist belief of the Elwynnese nation.

It is unknown whether there is a connexion in etymology between the Elwynnese 'Ayreon' and the Cedrist god 'Ayreon' (god of music). Given though that lions are seen as musical creatures in Elw mythology, it is not unlikely.

Kalirion is derived from the Hyperborean name of Princess Isa of Brookshire, Tuuler Kalirion, and means "of Kalir", Kalir being an archaic Hyperborean dynasty. The etymology of Kalir is believed to be related to the Hyperborean word for polar bear.

Jarl Jonathan,


A High Priestess may assume that there is not a supreme head of the House of of Ayreon-Kalirion and all branches are legally separate and independent of each other? Her High Holiness also thanks you for sharing this information with us. :)

My Lady


The question of whether branches are legally separate or not has not quite been settled, but good faith and general alignment and alliance are expected, as is tradition among the branches (save for the Simranis). There is no head of the house of Ayreon-Kalirion (which is different from the line of Ayreon-Kalirion), though perhaps their ought to be one. The line is defined to consist of all descendants of the marital union between Princess Isa of Brookshire (Tuuler Kalirion) and Eskender Arsalani of Babkha, as well as one adopted person, the late Kaiseress Isa Cassandrae. The house is defined to include the line, as well as all those ever marrying into it.
