The House of Gant
The House of Baruch-Gant is a cadet branch of the House of Baruch, stemming from the line of Carolus, Baron of Gant. The current head is Joren, Baron of Gant, who resides within the land of his liege lord and cousin, Sigmar Baruch, Count of Ayr. They are stalwart vassals of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska and the House of Barbanov.
(Joren Gant, c. 1734)
The decision to create a cadet branch arose after Joren’s admittance into the Royal Duma of Haense. It was believed having two Lord Baruchs in one small congregation — and in the Kingdom alone — would be too confusing and inconvenient. Typically, a single noble family does not have two patriarchs, or two title-holders at any one time.
Thus, any Baruch descending from Carolus or Joren will thus take on the name Baruch-Gant, or Gant for short. Any claim by the House of Baruch to the Barony of Gant or Baruch-Gant to the County of Ayr is hereby nullified, with all titles returning to the Crown should either line die out.
His Lordship, Joren Baruch-Gant, Baron of Gant
His Excellency, Sigmar Baruch, Count of Ayr, Baron of Laval, Riveryn, and Voron, Lord Speaker of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska
Just a short post, not meant to be anything hefty, more of a quick announcement to officiate it
