-The **Powyvest** dynasty were a family of nobles who ruled [[Aesedra]] for nearly 2500 years. The first [[Emperor]] of the name was **[[Belantine]] I Powyvest** who came to power after **[[Yandim]] V [[Torra]]** died in 8511. The Torra dynasty were a short-reigning family that came from [[Polatia]] and their line lasted a mere 150 years. The Powyvests were to rule Aesedra continuously for the next 2500 years until the reign of **[[Colsis]] XXII Powyvest**, who died in 10970. Colsis had no close relatives who could claim the [[Throne]] (after his father **Venone** murdered most of them) and the [[Council of Prefects]] elected [[Taian]] of [[Iron Gates]] to become [[Emperor]],​ hence starting the [[Rolle]] [[Imperial timeline|dynasty]] which has lasted to this day.+The **Powyvest** dynasty were a family of nobles who ruled [[Aesedra]] for nearly 2500 years.

 The family were renowned scholars and artists, and their rule reflected this fact. Rather than expansion and consolidation,​ the Empire instead looked inward during their long hold on power and slipped into decay and decadence many times. The size of the Empire and its constituent [[province]]s fluctuated over this period too. The Powyvests gave the Empire her greatest ever leader in **[[Belantine XVI Powyvest]] the Magnificent** who conquered the [[Wind Kingdom]] and brought Aesedra back into the forefront of world power. Their other significant contribution is the emblem of Aesedra, a black sun on a crimson field, which was the colours of the Powyvests. For reasons unrecorded, the Rolles never changed the flag when they came to power. ​ The family were renowned scholars and artists, and their rule reflected this fact.
