Emperors of the Flag: During the Civil
War period (604 to 622), the Imperium
was in the hands of a series of naval officers of flag (admiral) rank.
These eighteen 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
The succession of Emperors of the Flag began with the
seizure of the throne by Olav
hault-Plankwell in 604, which precipitated the Civil War.
It ended with the naming of Arbellatra
regent of the Imperium by the Moot in 622.
