The House of Walden was a noble house within the Gilnean Peerage that had been known to serve the Kingdom of Gilneas faithfully. Earls of the Wald, which is where they gained their name, watched over the southern reaches of the Blackwald and the various lords and towns within. Making their seat in a manse not far from Stormglen Village, the Waldens were known to be affiliated well with the House of Godfrey. It was not until the Invasion of Gilneas that the House attempted to betray the House of Greymane in order to ward off the Forsaken from advancing alonside the House of Ashbury and House of Godfrey. Upon their plans being foiled, the last known lord, Lord Walden, was slain by the king's liberators. Though he was later raised as an undead under the Forsaken, whom he too later betrayed, he was slain. Accounts vary whether or not it was the Bloodfang Pack that slew him, or the forces of the Forsaken. It is unknown if Lord Walden had any next-of-kin or heirs, though none have come forward and the House was likely disenfranchised due to high treason.
