House Jeggare is an ancient noble house found across the entire extent of Avistan, although centered in Cheliax.[1] Extremely wealthy, it joined House Thrune and other allies in building the Qatada Nessudiddia in Westcrown between 4639 AR and 4677 AR.[2]

The branch of House Jeggare in the Varisian city of Korvosa descends from a nephew of the famous philanthropist Montlarion Jeggare. It controls the second-largest share of dock space in Korvosa, allowing the family to generate an enormous income through its brisk trade. Nearly a quarter of the city's privately held assets are controlled by the family, making it not only a powerful and influential noble house but also the wealthiest. House Jeggare survives the sometimes cut-throat politics of Korvosa by keeping a line of credit open for the monarch and other noble families, and by acting as the chief financial backer of both the Korvosan Guard and the Sable Company.[3]
