Dynasty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1009 words)
A dynasty is a succession of rulers who belong to the same family for generations.
Until the nineteenth century, it was taken for granted that a legitimate function of a monarch was to aggrandize his dynasty, that is, to increase the territory, wealth and power of family members.
A ruler in a dynasty is sometimes referred to as a dynast, but this term is also used to describe any member of a reigning family who retains succession rights to a throne.
