Rulers

Little improvement was made as Calixtus had a “thing” for little boys and girls and routinely “deflowered” them with little caution.

The boy, only of the age of thirteen rammed a blade through Calixtus before he could commit the deed in the privacy of his chambers.

Miraxes I

Just four years into his reign he fell and suffered an injury that left him lame.

1551 - 1573

First Consul of Roseheim

Marius Colovian created the Republic of Rosehim following the collapse of the Second Empire. The Empire had fractured into fourteen nations and the Republic of Roseheim was the strongest but not the largest. The rule of Consul Marius Colovian was spent ensuring a surplus budget and securing the borders.

Lucius Varro

1573 - 1595

Second Consul of Roseheim.

Succeeding Marius, Lucius Varro gained the Consulship through his merit. He had spent the duration of his predecessor's reign as a Legate of the Republican Army securing the borders and managing the military's affairs.

1607 - 1614

Fourth Kaiser of Roseheim

Succeeding Consul Maxientius Cornelia to the Pinnacle of Roseheim's Political Power, Titus Numero declared war on the Kingdom of Donheim, who was responsible for his predecessor's death.

Seneca Vespasianus

1614 - 1627

Fifth Consul of Roseheim

Continuing the war with The Kingdom of Donheim, Consul Seneca Vespasianus was able to avenge his predecessor's death in battle against Donheim, when he sacked and razed their capital city effectively ending the war in 1619, though the war would not officially end in peace until 1623, at which point Donheim was annexed by Roseheim.

Gaius Lorien

1627 - 1658

Sixth Consul of Roseheim

The Rule of Consul Gaius Lorien was one of immense prosperity and peace in Roseheim as the small nations of Trinity, Calron, and Tythis joined the Republic of Roseheim willingly. This brought the number of Successor States down to Ten with Roseheim being the second largest but most prosperous. Only rivaled by the Kingdom of Night.

Primus Audens

1658 - 1681

Seventh Consul of Roseheim.

Like his predecessor, Consul Primus Audens oversaw the peaceful expansion of the Republic of Roseheim by the annexation of Myriad, Kintaris, Lumina, and Aurelia bringing the number of Successor states down more to Six now with Roseheim as the largest, most prosperous and populous Successor State to the Second Empire. The High Kingdom of Night and the other four states formed the Corona Pact to secure their nations and interests against that of Roseheim while avoiding direct confrontation.

Valens Jovius

1681 - 1693

Eighth Consul of Roseheim

Following two decades of a Cold War with the Corona Pact Nations, Roseheim suffered a massive military invasion by the Pact Nations who were attempting to stem the tide of growing Pro-Roseheim Sentiment among their populations, who were wishing to join Roseheim and the prosperity they enjoyed. This war dominated the rule of Valens Jovius, who while competent and capable was killed in the Siege of Avenheim the Capital of Roseheim.

Arcadian I

1693 - 1732

Ninth Consul, Fifty Third Kaiser of Roseheim.

Fighting the war against the Pact grew increasingly desperate for Arcadian Lyrias, the Bureaucracy grew increasingly difficult to navigate as he was fighting in the battles and engagements. It was in 1706 that he proclaimed the end of the Republic and the Rise of the Third Empire (and thus the Third Era) which was met with a renewed vigor from his Legions allowing him to push the Invading Pact nations out of Roseheim and sign a the Peace of Six in 1710. The remainder of his reign was spent securing against any further wars from the Pact and rebuilding all that had been lost in the war.

1771 - 1772

Fifty Seventh Kaiser of Roseheim

Assassinated by agents of the Order of Lunaria, the Moon Goddess as they believed him to be an ardent supporter of Solaris, the Sun God. It turned out he worshiped Lunaria and thus those in the Order purged themselves of those responsible for his murder.

Uriel IX

1772 - 1789

Fifty Eighth Kaiser of Roseheim

Co-Kaiser with his twin brother Praxis the Tenth as their father Antiochus wished for the pair to rule together.

Hildegarde I

1924 - 1936

Sixteenth Kaiserin, Sixty Sixth Kaiser of Roseheim.

Ascended after leading House Trost to secure the throne during the Second Interregnum. Her reign was rather brief as most of her prime was spent in the Interregnum Wars.

Hildegarde the Second led the Fourth Empire in it's successful conquest of the High Kingdom of Night when she was just thirty one and in her fourteenth year upon the throne. The High Kingdom of Night put up stiff resistance but with the solid military foundations of the Fourth Empire she was able to overcome that resistance and finally incorporate the High Kingdom back into Roseheim which hadn't been done since the Second Empire's collapse.

Over the course of her Reign the Fourth Empire entered a Golden Age under her careful and meticulous rule. The Kaiserin suffered a blow to her emotional state when her son and heir, along with his wife were killed in a car crash. She moved quickly and nominated her infant grandson as her heir and fortunately he survived and would go on to succeed her when she abdicated at the age of Ninety Four. She passed away peacefully eight years later at the age of One Hundred and Two, in the year 2101.

Dynasties

House Durrox

73 BCE - 3 BCE

House Durrox starts off as nothing more than blacksmiths in the City of Avenheim, the City State at the forefront of Hyphesion Politics and Power. House Durrox gained noteworthiness in the second century BF (Before Founding) when they forged the Great Sword "Moonsinger" from a fallen star (meteor). Wielding this blade and supposedly blessed by the Gods, House Durrox slowly built a power base among the City's Crafting Guilds until they had enough muscle and power to seize the Archonate and proclaim themselves Doge Eternal. For the next Century each successive Durrox to hold the post was more power crazed and war hungry than the last until finally Praxis set off and conquered all his foes reforming the lands under him into the Empire of Roseheim (Konnigreich Roseheim). For his thirty three year rule, constant political assassinations, kidnappings and wars brought the Empire to its knees upon his death. His eldest nephew Calixtus succeeded him. Little improvement was made as Calixtus had a "thing" for little boys and girls and routinely "deflowered" them with little caution. Soon his craving grew too intense for the Aristocracy to bear as he demanded the eldest son of a Noblemen be "deflowered" by him. The boy, only of the age of thirteen rammed a blade through Calixtus before he could commit the deed in the privacy of his chambers. Calixtus was quickly succeeded by his grandson Miraxes, who was remarkably better and well liked. However just four years into his reign he fell and suffered an injury that left him lame. Upon his death years later he earned the name Miraxes the Lame, though if he had not been of House Durrox he likely would have achieved the nickname "The Great" for the blissful rule and prosperity the Empire had beneath him. The nobility not desiring another tyrant or even the chance for such moved to secure a new House to rule. Thus the Imperial Torch passed to House Ebenhardt.

Only three rulers come from House Durrox:
Praxis the First (The Dragon)
Calixtus the First (The Mad)
Miraxes the First (The Lame)

House Ebenhardt

3 BCE - 128 CE

House Ebenhardt succeed House Durrox as the Imperial Family of the Konnigreich Roseheim or the First Empire. House Ebenhardt contains few notable historical rulers though they numbered only seven before House Ebenhardt's line ended due to a slew of assassinations. One thing of significant note is that this era is commonly known as the Golden Age of Classical Literature as it is under the patronage of House Ebenhardt that many great historians, satirists, playwrights and many others in the arts gained great prominence and refined their skills. The Capital of Avenheim was also heavily renovated during this time becoming a City of White Marble and two more tiers of walls were added to the already formidable one tier.

In 1924 Cephorus died, and Lepidus bent the knee to House Trost signaling his recognition of their rise to the Imperial Throne and his fall from grace.

Wars and Conflicts

War of Unification

73 BCE - 68 BCE

The War of Unification is when Kaiser Praxis I of House Durrox united the City States into the First Empire of Roseheim. The war itself was rather simple and straight forward as Praxis convinced eighteen cities to join him, and the city of Rosenwald in a war to end the infighting.
