The House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha, or House of Ruthenia originated from the marriage in 1988 of Duke Ari of Ruthenia and Countess Denise von Goëtzën, later successively Kings of Ruthenia and Archdukes of Karnia. Their descendent, Emperor Oscar I represent the legitimate surviving line of the House of Thomaz-Rocha and the House of Goëtzën, inheriting their patrimonial possessions and vocation to the Empire from the female descendants of the House of Goëtzën and the male line of the House of Thomaz-Rocha.

The House gathered dynastic momentum during 11th century, when Rudolf of Rheinfelden, thirty-second-generation ancestor of Oscar I was elected German Anti-king and again during 21th century, the the ascension of Oscar I to the Karno-Ruthenian Throne.

One of the most prominent royal houses of micronationalism, the throne of Ruthenia, and then the Karno-Ruthenian Empire is continuously occupied by the house since 2014, and also produced emperors and kings of North American Confederation, Occidia, Acrin, Bessabia, Badakistan, Gaussland, Carpathia, Cardonia, Horvatia, Tsechia, Eslavija and Taslavia, as well as holders of several other minor titles at various micronations.

The family split once into a parallel branch, although it was per se a cadet branch of the House of Thomaz-Rocha and the House of Goëtzën. Even ruling distinct territories, the different branches nevertheless maintained close relations. In 2021, the family sealed a pact around the House Law of the Karno-Ruthenian Imperial Family, to regulate inheritance, titles and rights of succession for the members of the family, while claiming ancestral titles.

History

The House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha originated from the marriage in 1980's of Archduke Ari of Karnia, and Archduchess Denise of Karnia, later King and Queen of Ruthenia. Its members are the legitimate surviving line of the House of Thomaz-Rocha and the House of Goëtzën, inheriting their patrimonial possessions and vocation to the Empire from the female descendants of the House of Goëtzën.

After the House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha established itself as a ruling house in 2014, they grew in power, and along Ruthenia, various other domains were added to their influence, producing monarchs of Acrin, Gaussland, Carpathia, Bessabia and Badakistan by 2015, Karnia, Tsechia and Horvatia by 2016, Eslavija by 2018, the North American Confederation and Occidia, Cardonia and Taslavia in 2020. Some other thrones were offered, but the house choose to follow a more strict line of cohesion in the domains they included in their domains.

Neverthless, they became relevant figures in foreign micronations as well, and collected several titles and honors abroad. This increasingly status reflected in their rank, from the royal style of 2014 to the imperial rank in 2016, later recognized by the Emperor of the North American Confederation and the Pavlovian Emperor in 2020 through the Treaty of Theodosia, and when Oscar I ascended to the North American Throne, once again recognized by the Pavlovian Emperor as suitable to imperial rank through the Treaty of Osokorky. In the same year, the Micronational Catholic Church, a group of Brazilian micronationalists who, in canonical terms, founded a lay apostolate founded in 1997, with authorization from the Catholic Church guaranteed to Oscar I the micronational use of the style of Apostolic Majesty[1].

The current head of the house is Archduke Ari (born 1961), who was the first King of Ruthenia as Ari I. As King, he was succeded by his ony son, Oscar I in 2014, and although the acting head of the family since 2014, he effectively succeded his father, Arcdhuke Anton, as head of the family in November 2020. In April 2021, a family pact was signed and the members of the family created the House Law of the Karno-Ruthenian Imperial Family, that finally confirmed the titles of the members of the dynasty, their duties and their place in the line of succession to the Karno-Ruthenian and to the Taslavian Throne. Of the thirteen children of Archduke Anton and Archduchess Denise, ten renounced their position in the line of succession, with just two of them, Archduke Pedro and her sister, Archduchess Celia, with children with archducal titles, although with no right to succession.

Another interesting subject is the sucession to the Occidian Throne. Despite being an hereditary monarchy, if Oscar I don't bear a natural heir, the crown will be reverted to the House of Hartmann-Peters due the Act of Abdication and Viceroyalty[2], don't being affected by the House Law.
