In the areas that were part of Greater Antharia (Antharia, Iviron, Montemassena, Niscavo, Glagol, West Chara, the North Demirhan Empire and the oversea territories/colonies Koutsovlakhia, South Cape, Phereiras and Tupom), a noble house is an aristocratic family, usually local or Central Ulethan, either currently or historically of national or international significance, and usually associated with one or more hereditary titles, the highest of which will usually be held by the Patriarch/Matriarch.

The noble house which the current reigning/retired monarch is part of is called Royal House (Casă Regală). Due to Margaretha I of Montabaur being the current de facto head of the Greater Antharian Empire, the current royal house is the Royal House of Montabaur. A few noble houses (such as Dabija, Mărmăruș, Marancuza, Drăculea etc.) have been royal houses in the past, but have lost their status when their dynasty has ended or their familial relationship with the position of power has been superseded.

The noble house which is in charge of the White Temple in Montemassena is also called Supreme House (Casă Supremă). For the last 6 centuries, this status has been held by the Supreme House of Massena, which also gave the name to Montemassena (The Mountain of Massenas) ever since. Noble houses which include a series of Grand Masters of Greater Antharian orders usually have the status of Great Houses (Mare Casă), such as the Great House of Valakh (as Grand Masters of the Order of Valakh), the Great House of Rotkreuz (Order of the Red Cross) or the Great House of Daraždi (Order of the Pantocrator). The Supreme House of Massena, for example, which is also the Grand Master of the Order of the Cartographer, has chosen to not include the status of Great House in their name.
