Andrik Lothar Barbanov, (8th of The Amber Cold, 1710 -Present) is the current King of Hanseti-Ruska as the oldest living son of Marius II of Haense and Klaudia of Vasiland. Upon his birth he was made the Grand Prince of Kusoraev, the honorary title given to all crown princes of the dual monarchy, and ascended to the throne after his father's assassination in 1719.

Early Life

Andrik Lothar Barbanov was born to King Marius and Klaudia of Vasiland in the Prikaz Palace in Reza in 1710. As the oldest living son of the King, he was designated as the crown prince and granted the title of 'Grand Prince of the Kusoraev'. Throughout his childhood in Reza, the young prince was known for his gregarious and rather reckless attitude. An active youth, the young prince would often be found climbing out through windows, climbing up trees and causing general mischief around the town, much to the dismay of his assigned guards.

The Prince would often be forced by his father and guardians to study, though he did not take his lessons kindly. Andrik was often commended for having an astute mind but, due to his general playfulness and issues with concentration, would only show this if he was bribed with sweets or the promise of playing. He was assumed to be left-handed as he'd often swap between both hands when writing or practicing swordplay, but due to the superstitions at the time surrounding left-handed people, he was forced to learn how to primarily use his right hand.

Reign

Andrik's reign began after his father was assassinated in the courtyard of the Prikaz by Hektor Barrow, a disgruntled Barbanov bastard who had served under King Marius directly. Andrik ascended the throne as Andrew III shortly after but, due to his young age, control of the Kingdom resided largely with the regency council headed by his uncle and Lord-Palatine Prince Georg Stannimar.

War of the Two Emperors

Main Article: War of the Two Emperors

During the early years of Andrik's reign, the War of the Two Emperors raged on and, despite his council's efforts to to withdraw Haeseni forces from the war, the Empire of Renatus continued their march towards Reza. Treaties signed by the Princedom of Fenn and Ves left Haense and their Reiver mercenaries to fend for themselves following the collapse of Joseph I's empire. Two disastrous defeats at the Silversea and Koengswald forced the Haeseni troops to retreat back to Reza and prepare for the coming siege. His reign was dealt another major blow when his regent Georg and uncle Godfric were both captured by Renatian forces and brought to Helena where they were executed.

The Palatine-Aspirant and Lord-Speaker Lerald, Count of Graiswald quickly assumed the role of regent and was made Lord-Palatine. The new Lord Palatine arranged a series of diplomatic missives and meetings with Renatian diplomats and the war was ended with the treaty of Reza [1], making Haense a vassal to the Holy Orenian Empire under Godfrey II.

Character and personality

As a child, Andrik was seen as a very gregarious and playful boy. He had no issues conversing with others and would often play with the other noble children however, the boy was cursed with a fiery temper and often make reckless and violent decisions. He also had a hard time concentrating and when forced to study would often wander off in thought. The boy did, however, show an early prowess in combat after learning how to fight with a sword at the age of eight.

After the death of his father, the now king's temper would be more apparent as he would hold vigorous speeches regarding the Haeseni war effort in the inherited War of the Two Emperors.
