The House of Baden is a human noble family from the parent House of Staunton. While it is of Courlandic origin, the House is mostly viewed as an Orenian House.



House Baden was first formed in Axios, when Frederick Staunton was granted the County of Trier and thereafter took the Baden name. The House was very influential in Courlandic politics, especially as Frederick served as Arch-Chancellor and left much of ruling Trier to his eldest son. Later on when Aleksandria was couped by the de Savins and de Castros, Frederick would be publicly beheaded. All of his children, bar Ariana who had already married, fled to the court of Peter II. Some blame Frederick for the downfall of Courland.

It was at the court of Peter II that Thomas Baden would find himself appointed High Magistrate of the Holy Orenian Empire. Thomas would also arrange the marriage of his sister, Philippa, to the Emperor's younger brother, Prince Philip, during this time. Ariana would die in 1624 after a spell of illness. Prince Philip, Duke of Corazon, would be killed in 1623, whereafter Philippa would move into solitude until her death in 1666. And Astrid died in 1650. Thomas and Richard, the only surviving members of the family would move to Aeldin, where they remained until their deaths in 1705 and 1678 respectively.


The Baden family would be seen for the first time since 1666 in 1690 when Frederick Alexander Baden arrived at the age of four, having been sent by his father, Thomas, to serve the new Empire of Man under Emperor Aurelius. Frederick would become a squire for his efforts in Third Atlas Coalition War and would continue to squire and serve as a Knight Errant throughout the rest of Atlas.


Frederick would finally be knighted in Arcas. House Baden stayed loyal to Godfrey III during the War of Two Emperors. Frederick would be captured by Holy Orenian troops in 1718 and was executed. The House Baden was then left in the hands of his two year old son, Seth Aurelius Baden and his younger siblings, Thomas Aldis and Adriana Nicole.
