The lords freeholder,[1] or simply freeholders,[2] were the nobility of the Valyrian Freehold.

The lords freeholder sometimes elected archons from their own number, to help lead Valyria for a limited time. While the freeholding families were usually of equal status, it was not entirely unheard of for Valyria to be swayed by one family alone.[1] The freeholders benefited greatly from the mining of gold and silver by slaves beneath the Fourteen Flames.[2]
