Somewhere in the former First French Empire
The house of Julia. Brought fourth some amazing characters (although not all by birt, but all adopted into this dynasty):

- Gaius Julius Caesar
- Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus Augustus
- Tiberius Julius Caesar

I like the Claudians. From the many Appius Claudius's to the first dynasty of emperors, the Claudians were constantly at the forefront of Roman politics. From the birth of the Republic to the imperial bloodline via the decemvirs the Claudians were everywhere. And of course, they have a quite famous road named after them.
