Huntsilver was a noble house of Cormyr. An "old blood" family, it was considered one of the Royal Houses, owing to its close ties to the Obarskyr royal line.[1][2][3]

BaseEdit

The family lived in Huntsilver Palace,[4] situated beyond the Royal Gardens in Suzail.[5]

They had holdings in Dhedluk and Thunderstone.[6]

HistoryEdit

After the Silver family split, the Huntsilvers were formed from a union of the Huntyn and Silver families, and founded by Gavrund Huntyn, brother-in-law of the second king, and was third of the noble families.[citation needed] The Huntsilvers were established by 245 DR.[7]

The Huntsilvers chose not to take sides when civil war erupted between Regent Salember and Prince Rhigaerd II. Instead, they equivocated when Salember demanded soldiers and aid.[8]

Following King Azoun IV’s death in the abraxus incident, the Huntsilvers preferred replacing the monarchy with a ruling council, rather than a regency, in order to free Cormyr from what they saw as Obarskyr tyranny.[9]

PersonalityEdit

The Huntsilver family was seen as aloof in the mid–14th century.[10]

ActivitiesEdit

The Huntsilvers were historically focused on managing Cormyr's forests and their resources. In the early years of the kingdom, the family organized the systematic development of forests for farmland. In the 14th century, Huntsilvers had a prominent role in clearing the Hullack Forest.[3]

Members of the Huntsilver family rarely appeared at the Royal Court, except on important occasions or on issues regarding the forests of Cormyr.[3]
