Patricians (patricius: "descended from the founding fathers") were native-born aristocracy in the ancient Rome, descended from the earliest inhabitants of the city. In Nova Roma patricians are members of the founding gentes.

The Constitution of Nova Roma states that there are three orders equal under the eyes of the law, the plebeian, equestrian and patrician, and says about the patrician order:

1. Ordo Patricius (patrician order)
a. The Ordo Patricius shall consist of a minimum of 30 families.
b. Should there be fewer than 30 patrician families the Senate shall have the power to nominate a plebeian family to the Comitia Curiata for elevation to patrician status.
c. The Senate shall have the power to nominate additional families to the Comitia Curiata for elevation to patrician status if this elevation does not cause the Ordo Patricius to exceed 5% of the population of Nova Roma.
d. A patrician family may allow its members to form new patrician families.
