(604 to 622): The Emperors of the Flag were a series of petty despots that ruled in the early days of the Third Imperium.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

During the Civil War period (604 to 622), the Imperium was in the hands of a succession of naval officers of flag (admiral) rank.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

These seventeen emperors achieved the throne through assassination, fleet action, political maneuvers, and general mayhem. The year 619 particularly saw six emperors serve on the throne, none of them for more than three months. The succession of Emperors of the Flag began with the seizure of the throne by Olav hault-Plankwell in 604, which action precipitated the Civil War. It ended with the naming of Arbellatra as regent of the Imperium in 622.
