This is a collection of my notes about the Xanth series I have gathered. There are many major families and places. If some of this looks familiar, I started a lot of Xanth related articles on Wikipedia. This page is very incomplete as I am nine novels behind in the series and have not been able to kept up with it.

Kings of Human Xanth

Ivy is the current King of Xanth. There are no ruling queens; so no matter gender, the ruler of Xanth is King. The power of Sorceresses is equal to the power of Magicians; so when a woman becomes King, she is referred to as Magician.

I want to thank Douglas Harter for all of his work putting together the list of characters on HiPiers. I could not have completed the family trees without him.
