Strephon (1049-)

(UPP 768ABF)

Forty-third emperor of the Imperium; oldest surviving issue of Paulo III.  Born in 1049, proclaimed emperor by the Moot in 1071.

During Strephon's reign, the Fourth Frontier War (1082 to 1084) erupted; his delegation of war powers to Norris, Duke of Regina, is credited with bringing a speedy end to a conflict that otherwise would have been hampered by the long delays in communication between Capital and the front.  Norris later averted a Fifth Frontier War and enabled peace with the Zhodani; and in partial recognition of this, Strephon appointed Norris as Archduke of the Domain of Deneb.
