Looking just at Rome-organic families, the most likely contenders for string-pullers are the Colonna Family, Orsini Family, and Massimo Family.

The first two have been historical rivals but both hail from the Julio-Claudian Dynasty. The Massimo Family hails from Gens Fabia.
Along with Claudii, Gens Fabii were considered one of the gentes maiores (Noblest Patrician families of Rome). We know this is a good place to look, because records of the gentes maiores are extremely hard to find.

Gens Fabii may also be the etymology of the Fabian Society.
The Julio-Claudian Dynasty hails from the Claudii and Julii families. The Julii bloodline is said to hail from Alba Longa, before the Roman Kingdom around 700 BC.
Romulus, first King of Rome is said to have hailed from the Royal dynasty in Alba Longa. Namely Romulus was said to be the grandson of King Numitor of Alba Longa. This was known as the Silvian Dynasty.
Ultimately, the Silvian Dynasty of Alba Longa is said to have originated from the Latium Kings. [P]icus is considered the first of these Kings and was believed to be the SON OF SATURN.
