Today's update is a bit more on the Empire of the Platinum Lion
Nineteenth Emperor of the Empire of the Platinum Lion (638 - 671)
Barrr III, born Krenduil on Osendul 14th, 589, was the second son of Emperor Xemdir and Princess Printila. Krenduil’s brother, Imperial Crown Prince Orsentul, died in 626 when his vessel was lost at sea, thus marking Krenduil as the Imperial Crown Prince, and heir.
Krenduil assumed the Imperial Seat on Brekdul 11, in 638 as Emperor Barr III – nine days after his father’s death. Emperor Barr III’s reign can be characterized as one of economic prosperity for the Empire. It was during his reign that Freehold was established as an independent city-state within the Empire (after the Spice Conflict of 652). It was also Barrr III who granted his subjects authority to enter into direct trade relations with other empires (previously all trade with non-empire citizens had to be sanctioned by the Imperial Chancellor of Commerce.) [See IDs 972 and ID1422]
When Barrr III assumed the Imperial Seat in 638, he had a son and five daughters, all with his wife Dranealia. In 642, his only son, Imperial Crown Prince Simmin was poisoned (note, it has always been assumed that Imperial Prince Asgent, son of Imperial Crown Prince Orsentul, grandson of Emperor Xemdir, and cousin to Simmin, orchestrated the assassination to clear his path to the Imperial Seat – though no proof has ever been cited.). In 643 Emperor Barr III and his wife Dranealia had a second son, Equil who became Imperial Crown prince and heir.
In 652, during the Spice Conflict in the east, Tristal, the Emperor’s fourth-daughter was killed while visiting Freehold in a show of Imperial authority. It was this event that brought the Emperor’s full attention to the Spice Conflict and facilitated a speedy conclusion to the affair.
It was on Kon 14th, 671 that Emperor Barr III was killed in a fall from his horse.
