The Dauphin of Carodia and Aurea (in High Sarovian: Dauphin eui Carodia y Aurea) as well as the title of Royo eui Carodia y Aurea, are some of the oldest on the Continent of Ostos. What is known about this title is very vague and part of its records were lost during the Sarovian invasion of the city of Valeroche during the Second Saro-Aurean War, in circa 295 AS.

History[edit | edit source]

Aurean Empire[edit | edit source]

The title of Dauphin of Aurea belonged to the Vaughn Dynasty since the First Aurean Empire led by His Imperial Excellency, Kevlar I Vaughn. The title of Dauphin was bestowed for the first time in the history of the Aurean Empire on Kevlar I's eldest son, Kevlar II. While the appointment of the Aurean Emperor was carried out in the Imperial Capital of Valeroche (currently the City of Escora), the appointment of the Dauphin of Aurea was carried out in the former province of Rivia (currently the City of St. Charles). Before the ceremony, the Aurean Emperor would draw up an Imperial document in the presence of the entire Aurean House of Lords with the aim of naming his heir to the rank of Dauphin of Aurea, receiving the Imperial inheritance. After this appointment, the Dauphin of Aurea marched with the Old Guard Corps (currently the Royal Militia of Carolusburg) to the province of Rivia. After this, the Dauphin donned the attire of the Colonel-in-chief of the OGC and during the ceremony, His Imperial Excellency, the Aurean Emperor, placed a scarlet sash on the Dauphin's uniform, representing the heir's entry into the Imperial Court as Crown Prince of the Aurean Empire. Furthermore, the title of Dauphin of Aurea was already used during the Auro-Loganite Empire, formed by the Grand Duchy of the Loganites, and the Principality of Aurea. Thus, the term "Dauphinate of Aurea" arose.

Dominion of Carolusburg[edit | edit source]

With the annexation of Aurea to the Dominion of Carolusburg, thus becoming the legitimate successor of the Aurean Empire, the Dominion has owned 2 Dauphins to the present day, the first being Michael Vasa-Vaughn, who ended up abdicating in a short time as a Dauphin. Therefore, the Prince of Kiev, John Vasa, assumed the titles of Dauphin eui Carodia y Aurea becoming the de facto Crown Prince of the Dominion of Carolusburg and Aurea. Although John did not have a traditional naming ceremony, he is seen by the Carodian population as: "The Good Dauphin" or "John the Good Dauphin" due to his good image towards the Dominion.
