Description[edit | edit source]
House Vizsla was a Mandalorian house, or political faction that was part of Mandalorian society and was led by Clan Vizsla. House Vizsla also contained other Mandalorian clans such as Clan Saxon and Clan Wren. One member of House Vizsla, Tarre Vizsla, created the Darksaber, which became an important symbol of the house and respected by all others.
History[edit | edit source]
During the fall of the Old Republic, members of House Vizsla stole Tarre Vizsla's Darksaber from the Jedi Temple. With the Darksaber as a symbol of power, House Vizsla managed to conquer and unify all of Mandalore for a period of time.
Following the Mandalorian Civil War, the head of House and Clan Vizsla, Pre Vizsla became Governor of Concordia. While publicly supporting the New Mandalorians' pacifist government under Duchess Satine Kryze, Vizsla secretly led Death Watch in a secret alliance with Count Dooku's Confederacy of Independent Systems.
During the reign of the Galactic Empire, House Vizsla sided with the Empire in hopes of gaining more power under the leadership of Imperial Viceroy Gar Saxon of Clan Saxon. House Vizsla would see internal conflict following a skirmish on Krownest, between the Clans Saxon and Wren, with Clan Saxon having Imperial support.
