"The Valorum dynasty enjoys an influential presence there, and a political victory by me can hardly be assured."
Wilhuff Tarkin, to Sheev Palpatine[src]

House Valorum was a prestigious human family[3]native to the Core World Coruscant,[2] capital of the Galactic Republic[1]—of the galaxy, which notably had much influence on the planet of Eriadu and owned a shipping company.[3] Tarsus Valorum was a member of the family.[4]

Following the fall of the Old Republic,[5] about a millennium before the onslaught of the Clone Wars,[6] Tarsus[4] became the first Supreme Chancellor of the modern Galactic Republic. Finis Valorum, a direct descendant of Tarsus Valorum,[4] served as the penultimate Chancellor.[3] His second term was truncated as a result of the Invasion of Naboo, and Sheev Palpatine was elected as Finis' successor.[1]
