- "For generations, the name Tagge has been synonymous with that of the Republic, as the blood of one of the original Founders continues to flow through our veins. We would be remiss not to broadcast to the galaxy at large our undying devotion to the union, our faith in the Supreme Chancellor, and our dedication to serving the people of the Republic."
- ―Baroness Sanya Tagge
The head of the family held the rank either of baron or baroness, depending on gender. An official complete list of the heads of House Tagge did not exist, but three had been established: Sanya Tagge was head of the house in the period leading up to the Clone Wars, but there is no indication as to when she ascended to this position. Her oldest son, Orman Tagge, became baron and head of the family early in 20 BBY, at the age of seventeen. Orman became incapacitated in 0 ABY and died later that same year, so the position was passed to the youngest son, Ulric Tagge. No information exists as to how long Ulric held the position after that.
The House of Tagge owned and operated the Tagge Company—one of the most powerful megacorporations in the galaxy—as well as a private military of 5,000 armed scout starships and a million soldiers. They supported the Galactic Republic throughout the Separatist Crisis and Clone Wars—although they did not offer the Republic the use of their paramilitary forces—and following the Declaration of a New Order, were firm supporters of the Galactic Empire. In 0 ABY, the House of Tagge supported the Imperial Navy with a flotilla of private battlecruisers during the Yavin blockade, as Baron Orman Tagge was trying to usurp Darth Vader's position as Emperor Palpatine's right hand man.
The House of Tagge framed and disgraced the rival House of Balfed.
