The Julian dynasty, also known as the House of Urcea, is a dynasty of Great Levantine origin. It is among the oldest royal houses in Levantia and the world, and includes Saint Julius I, the first Archduke of Urceopolis. The dynasty has had a crucial role in the formation of the Urcean state. Originating as an obscure patrician family of Urceopolis during the period of Great Levantia, the House of the Julii survived the fall of Great Levantia and eventually saw Saint Julius I elected the last Duke of Urceopolis. Following the formation of the Holy Levantine Empire, the Saint was invested with the new Archduchy of Urceopolis while his brother was given the new Grand Duchy of Yustona. These two realms were united during the 10th century when the direct line died out, forming the key constituent parts of what would later become Urcea with the Golden Bull of 1098.

Members of the dynasty were traditionally Catholic, and the early reigning Julians had an alliance with the Church. The most notable exception was the House of Angloise, a cadet branch of partial Ænglish descent which ruled Urcea during the mid-16th century. The Angloise, who adopted Protestantism, were deposed by House de Weluta during the Great Confessional War. House de Weluta, which has ruled Urcea since, remains a staunchly Catholic house.
