Kaiser Sigismund I.jpg

The second emperor of the Galactic Empire in the Goldenbaum Dynasty, Sigismund I ascended to the throne at the age of 25. As Rudolph von Goldenbaum's only son, born to his mistress, was rumored to have suffered from a congenital birth defect, Sigismund, son of Rudolph's eldest daughter, was named emperor.

Sigismund I's father, Prince Joachim von Neue Stauffen, served as the second emperor's chief of staff.

History[]

At the begining of his reign, massive democratic rebellions errupted across imperial territory. The people saw Rudolph von Goldenbaum's death as a sign to reclaim the liberties they had lost when the Empire was created. But the powerful infrastructure of nobility, military and bureaucracy supporting the Goldenbaum Dynasty was more than a match for the rebels, and led by Joachim von Neue Stauffen, they brutally supressed the revolts, firmly establishing the Galactic Empire as a force that would not waver.
