John Achilles also known as John VII and born Achilius (High Imperial: Johannes Achilius), is the second Emperor of the Eighth Empire, reigning since the abdication of his older brother Godfrey II in 1724.

Biography

Early Life

Achilius was born just before the start of the War of the Two Emperors and would spend most of his childhood within the safe walls of Helena. He primarily spent time with his twin-sister Laurentina Julia, as well as other kids that lived in Helena. He would occasionally take the place of his brother, Godfrey III, at formal events that he nor the Empress Adeline could not attend. He would later be tutored by a high elven woman named Nemir Iyliar. On the 11th of Owyn's Flame, 1720, he along with his sister, were baptised by Frederick Guillen, the Bishop of Pembroke.

Crown Prince-Regency and Horen Dissolution

At the start of 1721, his brother travelled to Aeldin and dissolved the Kingdom of Renatus and reformed the Holy Orenian Empire, thrusting Achilius into the position of Regent as Godfrey wished to take a pilgrimage around Aeldin. After the House of Horen was dissolved, he became known as Achilius Cascadia rather than Achilius Horen. He would oversee the Court of 1721, where when the Host from Haense approached, he demanded to have his toe sucked as a request for forgiveness for Haenseni crimes. All of the Haenseni officials refused, leaving a Knight, Ser Bernhard, to do it for them. Ser Bernhard would later return, where he was granted the Baronetcy of Toslurph for his bravery. During the year of 1721, Achilius would visit many Haenseni castles, most notably those of Ayr and Nenzing. Later during the regency, relations with the dwarves would become tense, due to dwarves claiming that the Burgraviate of High Peak was built upon a dwarven ruin. Achilius would later sign the Pax Orenia would be signed in 1722, an alliance between the Holy Orenian Empire, the Kingdom of Curon, the Republic of Ves, the Archduchy of Suffonia and the Duchy of Cressonia.

Reign

Achilius was proclaimed Emperor on the 7th of Tobias’ Bounty of 1724, during a speech made by himself during the Festival of Unity. His coronation would occur a few days later, where he was coronated by the High Pontiff, Daniel VI, in a grand ceremony. He took the regnal name John, becoming John VII.
