|Group Overview and Statistics|
Unknown (prior to the Great War)
The House of Acorn is a fictional royal family of anthropomorphic squirrels from the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-offs. They traditionally rule the Kingdom of Acorn from the capital city, Mobotropolis. Before the beginning of both series, they were usurped by the evil genius Doctor Robotnik.
In the Archie series, the royal family and its history has been greatly expanded on from the version seen in the SatAM cartoon. The Kingdom has been restored. Although Mobotropolis has been lost, Knothole has developed into a bustling city and has even become the new capital for the royal family. The new-named Kingdom of Knothole is no longer hidden from Dr. Robotnik, now in a state of open war against his Eggman Empire.

Kingdom of Acorn
As the royal family, the Acorns hold sway over the Kingdom of Acorn, which includes the former Mobotropolis (now a radioactive wasteland) and Knothole, as well as Great Forest. It is unknown how much territory the family controls, but it is considerable. The Kingdom is currently engaged in open war with the Eggman Empire, as opposed to the guerilla warfare previously utilized by the Freedom Fighters.
Following an attempt by Patch to seize the throne which left Maximilian Acorn unable to continue his duties as sovereign, Elias Acorn was forced to step forth and claim his birthright, and now serves as the Kingdom's head of state. The Kingdom suffered heavy damage from an attack by Eggman's Egg Fleet, with the entire royal family being among all but a few of Knothole's inhabitants taken prisoner by the invading forces. Thankfully, the quick actions of the survivors resulted in a successful rescue mission that liberated the Acorns and all the prisoners being held by Eggman, and their relocation to a new city; a picture-perfect recreation of Mobotropolis before Robotnik first came to power created by Nicole christened New Mobotropolis.
Council of Acorn
Not long after the relocation to New Mobotropolis, the Kingdom was faced with internal problems: Amadeus Prower staged a rebellion intent on removing the Acorns from power due to their past failures, a conflict that split the inhabitants of the city down the middle and pitted Acorn-loyal Sonic against Tails, his best friend and Amadeus' son. With neither King Elias nor Amadeus willing to budge on their stance regarding the kingdom, the two engaged each other in a fierce duel. Their battle ended abruptly, however, when Nicole intervened, bringing Sally in to mediate.
After a stern lecture from the princess, the two men agreed to compromise rather than demand one extreme over another, resulting in the creation of the Acorn Council: six elected citizens, with the king presiding as a seventh. While this reform was praised by the people, it was silently criticized by the former king, Max, who had initially demanded severe punishment for Amadeus and all co-conspirators after the original riot. Despite this, the elections were organized, with Rosemary Prower-Amadeus' wife and Tails' mother-putting her name up for nomination, obviously eager to bring about the reforms she feels are necessary. She won the post, together with three of the Substitute Freedom Fighters, Uncle Chuck, and Rotor the Walrus, only to have to deal with the threat of a reborn Enerjak.
Once Dimitri-once Enerjak himself-reported all that he could about the situation, the Council made a number of decisions. First, they determined that neither the Freedom Fighters nor the Chaotix would be sent against Enerjak or to Angel Island until more could be learned about the danger of the situation. The Chaotix, objecting to this decision and to the fact that the Council refused to hear their say, tried to force their way through by fighting through guards at the King Frederick Airfield. Sonic appeared to stop them, and Sally managed to convince them to remain in New Mobotropolis by offering them a compromise from the Council: if they stayed, Sonic and Tails would be sent to find the missing Knuckles.
