The House of Troyden (Polish: Trojden) was a dynasty originated by Troyden, earl of Kovir. While it was expected that the House pay tribute to the king of Redania, they chose not to and passed all titles on to family members. As a result, they were not welcome in Tretogor nor were they invited to any official ceremonies.

Family Emblems

Earl Troyden's original coat of arms was a Redanian Eagle on green.[1] In the following generations, the shield color apparently changed back to red and after the marriage of Gedovius Troyden to Gemma, descendant of Kaedweni bastard "princess" Aideen, it was became quarteded with Kaedwenian Unicorn. Both the Eagle and the Unicorn were included in coat of arms of the Kingdom of Kovir and Poviss, and its flag.[2] Both the coat of arms and the flag fell out of use after the throne was inherited by the House of Thyssen.[3]
