Westgate Dynasties

Unlike Tethyr, Cormyr, or Procampur, all of which have been ruled for centuries by the same royal family, Westgate has been ruled by no less than seven royal houses, each of which included at least two kings of the same bloodline. Moreover, including the Pirate Kings, more monarchs have ruled Westgate whose kin never inherited the throne and who never established any sort of dynasty than those who are numbered among one of the seven acknowledged dynasties.
