The House of Martok is one of the Klingon Empire's most powerful and respected Great Houses, led by Martok and his wife Sirella. Martok himself had not been high-born, as he came from the Ketha lowlands on Qo'noS, although his house gained significant influence and power thanks to his brilliant military career. In 2373, Martok formally invited Worf to join the House of Martok, after Worf played a critical role in the success of his first mission commanding the IKS Rotarran. (DS9: "Soldiers of the Empire")

The following year, during the Dominion War, Alexander Rozhenko also joined the House of Martok after he reconciled with his father. (DS9: "Sons and Daughters")

However, when Worf and Jadzia Dax decided to wed the same year, Sirella, Mistress of the House, opposed Jadzia's joining the House of Martok. Sirella believed that by allowing aliens into her house, it would threaten their identity as Klingons. She went as far as canceling the wedding after an altercation with Jadzia, although she changed her mind after Jadzia apologized and begged forgiveness. (DS9: "You Are Cordially Invited")

After Jadzia's death in late 2374, Martok and Worf decided that Ezri Dax was a fitting successor to her and would continue to be a member of the House of Martok. (DS9: "Tacking Into the Wind")
