House al-Malik is an extended family of nobles within the Interplanetary Neo-British Kingdom. They have a large number of hereditary and appointed seats within the House of Lords on Neo-Britain. They also own a large amount of the economy of certain worlds within the Kingdom, including Istakr, Shaprut, Criticorum, Aylon, and Kordeth, although the planetary and local governments on these worlds lack any hereditary position, and their representatives in the House of Commons are by direct popular vote.
House al-Malik is large composed of Humans, but a large number of members are non-Human.
Many al-Malik nobles are involved with the Trade Federation.
It's likely that their economic interests have kept the al-Malik above the status of the Minor houses.
