  • Primogeniture is the term for succession passing from father to first-born son. Dynasty denotes rule by one family; monarchy denotes King or Queen status upon said dynasty. Dynasty can refer to Monarchy or Imperial succession, or to less legalistic structures like socially prominent families, by way of industry or finance or commerce, or even crime families... or sometimes politically-prominent families will have this term used to describe them. – GerardFalla Mar 26 '18 at 19:05

  • To the moderators: Sorry, I wasn't aware of length requirements. It does include a citation, but if it is that bad, please remove it. I'll somehow get over it. – m_a_s Mar 28 '18 at 17:53
