Adrian de Sarkozy (10th of the First Seed, 1702 – present), is an Imperial military and political leader. He has served as Lord Protector of the Holy Orenian Empire since the demise of Emperor Alexander II in the year 1731, acting simultaneously as head of state and government in a time of unrest and interregnum.

Early Life

Born under the name of Adrian Leopold var Josip Sarkozic in the city of Ves, as the son of Joseph of Adria and his wife, Victoria Valic, Sarkozy's childhood was punctuated mostly by the long absences of his father, leaving him to be raised primarily under the tutelage of his great uncle Edgar. With the breakout of the War of the Two Emperors, he entered into the retinue of Joseph of Marna along with the majority of the able-bodied Adrian nobility resident in Ves. At the age of 13 when the war commenced, he was one of the youngest volunteers, being placed under the direct authority of Conrad of Leuven. When the Josephite army was repelled at Helena, Leuven would become the main battleground of the civil war. Showing great promise at such a tender age, on the day he turned 16 the Count of Leuven gave him full military command of the garrison there, with which he engaged the Pertinaxi loyalists in several pitched battles.

After months of fighting, he would later be captured and brought to the Emperor of Renatus himself. The emperor demanded his allegiance, bidding that he forswear all loyalty to the Josephites, which he refused, being promptly imprisoned into a dungeon for ransom. Languishing for a few months in the Renatian dungeons, Sarkozy's ransom was later paid by a Curonian merchant sympathetic to the Josephite cause. Shortly after his release and arrival in the Curonian capital city of Avalain, Curon switched its allegiance to the Pertinaxi side of the civil war, sending the young Sarkozy into hiding to regroup with what loyal retainers he had left. Sarkozy's actions throughout the remainder of the war are unknown, however, upon the conclusion of the conflict, he returned to Ves and resided in relative obscurity. At some point subsequent to this in the year 1724, he was summoned to Helena for an audience with the new emperor, John VII, who offered to entitle him Baron of Renzfeld in exchange for his loyalty. Sarkozy obliged and swore himself to the service of the newly-minted Holy Orenian Empire.
