History[edit | edit source]
In the 1360s DR, the Bleth family was one of the more powerful and wealthier noble families of Cormyr, thanks to its control of the Seven Suns Trading Coster, one of the largest merchant groups in the kingdom. The family was headed by Lord Gruen Bleth.
Activities[edit | edit source]
In the 1360s, the Bleth family had little involvement in the affairs of Cormyr's Royal Court. Instead, the mercantile Bleths focused on expanding their business and dominating the Cormyrean finances. They were successful and wielded great economic power.

Relationships[edit | edit source]
The main rival to the Bleths was the Rowanmantle family. There was a long-lasting but minor feud between them, still ongoing in the 1360s DR. The Bleths were also held in poor regard by the Roaringhorn family. It had been this way for centuries by the 14th century, and nobody remembered why.
