Political InformationAt the head of the great fuedal system of the Universe, with rulership over all lesser houses, was the Padishah Emperor. The Emperor's duties involved the maintenance of his Empire, the commandment of his Sardaukar legions, whose martial prowess kept the Emperor at the top, and the sucession of his bloodline. The term Padishah (پادشاه) means great king, or king of kings in Persian. Originally, the Emperor's seat of power was on Salusa Secundus. However, after the planet was rendered near unihabitable by atomics, the Imperium Center was moved to Kaitain. The Padishah Emperor was a descendant of a royal bloodline, two of which are known of, and ruled over the Imperial House, one and the same as the Imperium, which in turn ruled over all other houses. Padishah Emperor's have so far have descended from only two bloodlines, House Corrino and House Atreides.
