The Princely House of the Northern Forests was founded by Princess Cedrus I of the Northern Forests in 2020 upon the proclomation of independence of the Principality of the Northern Forests. It comprises the Princess and her close relations. There is no strict legal or formal definition of who is or is not a member of the Northerner Princely Family so the Princess can make anyone she feels is close to the Princely Family a member of it, even those who have absolutely no blood relation to the Princely Family.


Through many lineages the Princess of the Northern Forests is related to various European Royalty with the most recent being that of the Hohenzollern Princes, who ruled the Margraviate of Brandenburg, through the marriage of her great-grandmother Margaret Brandenburg (1836-1920) to an American. This lineage also traces back to Denmark through the marriage of Frederick Wilhelm Brandenburg, Grand Elector of Brandenburg (1620-1688) and Sophia Dorothea Schleswig-Holstein-Glücksburg, Duchess of Brunswick-Lüneburg (1636-1689).

The Princess was adopted by a old poor non-reigning Royal Family in Eastern Europe recognized by the House of Bourbon, House of Savoy, House of Rurikovich, and many others. Her biological family also comes from various Nobility and Knights from England, Scotland, Ireland, Norway, France and Denmark stretching back to before the Norman Conquest in 1066. Today the Royal Family has four members with two heirs respectively.

The Royal Family

The Princely House of Cedrus is synonymous with the Royal Family of the Northern Forests, the Princely House of the Northern Forests, the Northerner Royal Family and the Royal House of the Northern Forests. They are all one and the same and refer to the same people. The most common is the Royal Family of the Northern Forests. A Royal Family is the immediate family of a King or Queen or, in the case of a Principality, a Princess or a Prince, and sometimes her or his extended family. However, in common parlance members of any family which reigns by hereditary right are often referred to as Royalty or "Royals." It is also customary in some circles to refer to the extended relations of a deposed monarch and his or her descendants as a Royal Family.

A dynasty is sometimes referred to as "the House of ..." as in: the House of Cedrus. Interestingly, the wife or partner of the Princess is not a Princess or a Prince, but a Grand Duchess. If the Princess was married or in a relationship with a male he would be called theGrand Duke Consort and hold no legitimate or legal authority without Royal Warrants or Letters Patent. Those who at the time are entitled to the style His or Her Royal Highness (HRH) are normally considered members, including those so styled before the beginning of the any given Prince or Princess's reign. By this criterion, a list of the current Royal Family will usually include the current reigning monarch, the children and grandchildren of the monarch and previous monarchs, the children of the eldest son of the Prince of Amabilis, and all of their current or widowed spouses. Some members of the Royal Family have official residences named as the places from which announcements are made in the Court Circular about official engagements they have carried out.

Public Role

The Princely Family of the Northern Forests support HRH Princess Cedrus in her state and national duties. Each year the family "carries out various official engagements throughout the Principalities lands and worldwide". Engagements include state funerals, national festivities, garden parties, receptions, and visits to the Armed Forces as well as receiving foreign diplomats. Members of the Royal Family sometimes have their own individual charities. HRH Princess Cedrus regularly helps African Traditional Kingdoms with monetary assistance, especially for those Kingdom's children and educational needs.
