Carolus XIII



The Imperial Vasa Dynasty, also called as House of Zor-Mako-Vasa, is the ruling home of the New Sarovian Empire and Her Colonies and Dominions. Since it was founded in 2016, initially as Zoar, all Sarovian monarchs are part of the Dynasty, being considered the most solid family in the entire world. The monarch is head of state of sovereign states. They are: New Sarovia, Carolusburg (Carodia-Aurea), Philippia, Metternau, the State, Oxeria, Nassau (Hanor). In addition to these separate monarchies, there is the Remerra Saroviano being a colony under Crown control, and an Overseas territory in Boreas.

The Dynasty has its origins from Tristan I, the Caesaropope, the first King of the Graal and unified people, being crowned by Stefan himself. Tristan would found the House of Zoar with the goal of starting a dynasty of rulers blessed by Stefan and preserving peace in the Graal. Later, the Dynasty would follow the separatist Zor branch initially created by Carolus I, and resumed by Carolus VIII. The Dynasty would expand to several other kingdoms, and, in the future, would come to be known as Zor-Mako-Vasa. However, throughout history, many Sarovian monarchs bearing the name Vasa ruled other nations, namely: Oxeria and Sacro (Hanor), creating branches such as Zor-Mako-Vasa-Oxeria and Zor-Mako-Vasa-Nassau. Currently, the dynasty preserves its original name: Zor-Mako-Vasa, but maintains its claims on the Oxerians and Nassau (Hanor) peoples.

History[edit | edit source]

The History of Sarovian Antiquity[edit | edit source]

The Separation of the House of Zoar[edit | edit source]

Tel Majis, do Royo eui Septentrionis Carolus I of the Zor Separatist Branch. The Second monarch of the Graal Empire.

Everything would start from the House of Zoar. It was founded by Caesaropope Tristan I, the King of the Graal and Unified People, who served as the first and only Royal Family to control all Graalian peoples. However, the unified kingdom would be disbanded after Tristan's death, so Carolus' older brother, known as Xor, would betray the Stefanic Faith, thus disbanding the Unified Graal Empire due to the law of inheritance of the hammer - where the south was taken by Cordias and the North taken by Carolus I, who would later declare himself Royo eui Septentrionis (also mentioned as Rex Septentrionis), that is, the king of the people of the north. The border was at the Nafets River, with several raiding parties going back and forth. With Tristan's death, the western domains were lost in the uprising, and the Graal looked much darker than it ever had. In turn, Caros felt robbed of the entire Graal, believing that his brother did not have the diplomatic touch to bring Cordias back to Stefan's side, and thus began planning his brother's murder. Later, the plan was released to the public, and in response, Carolus I renamed the royal house of Zoar to Zor in defiance, causing the house to split into two main branches, namely: The Zoar Legitimist Branch, and, the Zor Separatist Branch. Shortly after this came to light, Carolus I would be seen throwing Caros into prison.

The Supposed "End" of the Zor Branch[edit | edit source]
Tel Majis, do Royo eui Septentrionis Carolus II of the Zoar Legimist Branch. The Third monarch of the Graal Empire.

Caros Zoar, while he was still in prison, he met a prisoner called Maria from the Kiev family, this being a noblewoman devoted to Stefanism. He would later marry her and have a son. The Stefanic years passed, and, Caros Zoar would later be released with the aim of becoming the new Royo eui Septentrionis, due to the disappearance of his brother, Carolus I in combat. Rumor has it that Carolus I organized a campaign to retake properties in the West, where he spent two Stefanic years planning the campaign. However, according to the Historia Sarovianorum, he was never seen again. Two legends became popular immediately after the disappearance of the Royo eui Lauterra. The first says that the king and his bodyguard found a new land, unknown to the Graalians before, and established a huge kingdom there and was never heard from again. The second suggests that the king and his men landed at Ol'West and eventually converted to the native population.

Caros Zoar after ascending the throne, would become Carolus II Zoar. Upon assuming the throne, Carolus II immediately reversed some of the old policies his brother had established, including returning the family name to Zoar and beginning formal negotiations with Cordias. The negotiations almost reached a decision – to heal the Stephane/Stefan schism that shook the world the previous year. However, according to assumptions made by the Liber Stefanicus and the Historia Sarovianorum, as they never directly touched on the subject, Cordias died of poisoning and his son, Auel, reformed everything south of the river Nafets under the name Imperia, and was no longer inclined to enter into negotiations. Six months later, Carolus II died of unknown complications, unable to fulfill his diplomatic dreams and leaving the throne to his son, Carolus Zoar Fax, who would be born during a storm, and would become Carolus III.

The Battle of York[edit | edit source]

Carolus Zoar Fax did not have a childhood, he would assume the role of monarch at a very young age, which would deprive him of development in a traditional way, forcing him to learn governance practices at a very young age. Furthermore, he sought to improve his combat practices due to the period of tension that the Graal would be going through. Thus, in the future, he would be considered one of the great warrior kings of the Sarovian people, which can also be taken into consideration because Carolus XII was a warrior king, and would probably have been inspired by Carolus III.

About many Stefanic years passed, and Carolus III would marry a noblewoman named Christinia Fax, who modern historians of New Sarovia now believe to have been the first vestige of the Fairfax Family. After their marriage, about two Stefanic years later, they would have three sons: Gustavus Zoar (who disappeared before taking the throne), Carolus IV and Adolf Zoar. Three months later, war was inevitable, as the Kingdom of Imperia (now known as the State) crossed the River Nafets and besieged the city of York. There the king led his army into battle and undertook a sortie - marching all night through the back door to meet the Statees on an advantageous hill. According to the Historia Sarovianorum, when the two sides faced each other, the Statees were defeated. However, the Liber Stefanicus reads that magic was used by the Stefanic and Stephanist forces to warp their respective sides away, with Carolus III in the northern Graal hills and the Statees on the river Nafets, who then besieged the castle there. and eventually to Sar, who was devastated and lost forever.

In the north of the Graal, Carolus began marching his army south, but lost many supporters due to the harsh lifestyle in the north. When the capital was taken, he turned around and established a small settlement, and two months later he was killed during a hunt by a Stefanist rebel soldier. The throne then passed to his middle son, Carolus IV.

Tel Majis, do Royo eui Septentrionis Carolus IV of the Zoar Legimist Branch. The Fourth monarch of the Graal Empire.

Sarovianization and the Reign of Carolus IV[edit | edit source]

Carolus IV, a member of the Legitimist Zoar branch, would be the first Sarovian monarch of antiquity to begin preparations for "Sarovianization" (a concept that harks back to the modern period of Sarovian history which would be essential to the contemporary Sarovian period, referred to as Pax Sarovica). .

Carolus IV was middle-aged when he inherited his throne and is one of the shortest-reigning monarchs. This moment is known in the history of Sarovia as the Stefanic Succession Crisis, when a whole argument arose over whether or not Carolus IV was the legitimate monarch or his nephew, the future Carolus V. At first, the nobles rallied in support of Carolus IV, as he was a skilled fighter. According to the Historia Sarovianorum, the king led a cavalry charge at the battle of York, which broke the Statees before divine intervention caused the battle to end.

The king is also the first to slowly begin the transition to Sarovianization, renaming his office from Royo eui Septentrionis to Royo eui Roisa, an ancient version of the word Reuss, named after the mountain range that surrounded the ancient vanished city of Sars and the northern Graal. The support, however, did not last long. Some policies regarding reform of the army and social structure led the nobility to overthrow the king in favor of his nephew, Carolus V.

Carolus IV and his guards were ambushed by nobles and the mob, and were murdered - thrown into the North Sea and never given a proper funeral.

The first vestiges of a golden age[edit | edit source]

Carolus IV, became very unpopular. Some policies regarding reform of the army and social structure led the nobility to overthrow the king in favor of his nephew. Carolus V was forced to become the next Royo eui Roisa against his will and was crowned in the spring, according to the Historia Sarovianorum. He began to usher in a golden age of Sarovian literature at the wrong time - the people in the temporary settlement in the north wished to reclaim their former state lands, and Carolus V refused to go to war.

After four months of refusing to fight, he was publicly challenged by his cousin - son of Adolf Zor and Mary of Atlas (brother and sister-in-law of Carolus IV) - Iohannes Carolus Zoar. After only a few days of debate, Carolus V abdicated in favor of Iohannes, who became Carolus VI.

Carolus V died of old age without any heir, the cause of death being unknown.

The "Royo Playboy"[edit | edit source]

In his youth, Carolus VI was a playboy in the kingdom. He did not attend meetings with the guardian his father had appointed for him and, as an obscure member of the royal family who never intended to become king, he was never given a title of nobility. He stayed out of politics and state affairs - preferring to party and socialize with the rest of the Kingdom. According to the Historia Sarovianorum, the king was often drunk, so much so that before the reign of the Arcadian king Peter Blackfyre, the derogatory term for drunk was “to be drunk like Carolus Six”.

Immediately, after the abdication of Carolus V, Iohannes Carolus Zoar, as Royo eui Roisa declared war on the State and won four successful battles in the north of the Graal - although none of them were decisive. After a battle on the outskirts of the ancient city of Sar, the faithful of Stefan and Carolus VI finally discovered that their ancestral home was missing - and they were never able to find its archaeological roots.

Carolus VI pushed his army close to the river Nafets and faced a state army in a pitched battle. According to the Historia Sarovianorum, state skirmishers fired a volley of arrows that were captured by Stefan's hands, saving the king from death, but when a Roisan archer was persuaded by Xor's Stefanist influence and fired at Carolus VI, the arrow lodged under his arm and he was dragged from the battlefield and died the next day.

The Last Reign of the Legitimist Zoar Branch[edit | edit source]

Carolus VII (birth: Caros Tristram Carolus Zoar.) was the only son of Carolus VI Zoar and Sophie Civatateo and a distant descendant of King Tristram. Carolus VII was vaguely young when he ascended the throne according to the Historia Sarovianorum.

Carolus VII was a very devout Stefanist and lived his life in an incredibly simple way. He was educated alongside his father as he studied to take the throne, and was betrothed to the daughter of a local tribe chief, Michelle of Aurelia. According to the Historia Sarovianorum, Carolus VII knew he was destined to lead as king, even though he didn't want to - preferring to be a family man. Once married to Michelle, he had three daughters - Johanna, Jens and Milla Zoar, who married influential military commanders and nobles of Roisa. Johanna was married to the Comes of Lochland, Michael Mako (Comes being the old form of Viscount, in High Sarovian: Visärle). This marriage was unique in that during the marriage negotiations, the two parties agreed to form a new branch of the Zoar family, the Zor-Mako dynasty.

Carolus VII accompanied his father on his campaigns and was a great morale boost to the noble recruits on the march - giving speeches in favor of his father. At the Battle of Freakia, his father was mortally wounded by an arrow, leaving Carolus VII in command.

The next morning the two sides began fighting again, and in the evening the two sides separated, with no clear victor. For four days afterwards, Carolus VII and the former King of The State, Auel I, negotiated peace. Terms were finally found on the fifth day, where the State would cede all land north of the Nafets River to Roisa when Auel I died, and pay the equivalent of 60,000 Saros today.

On the march back to Roisian territory, Carolus VII died due to the winter cold, leaving no heir. His officers hid this fact from the men until it was discovered outside the Roisian capital, where many deserted and returned to their farms.

The Return of the Zors[edit | edit source]

Carolus VIII (born: Felixus Carolus Zor) was the Royo eui Roisa after the death of Carolus VII Zoar on the march home after the Battle of Freakia. He was not directly related to the former king, and the crown was imposed on him in his youth. Son of Felix Zor and Princess Elise of the State, a political marriage arranged by a treaty made by Carolus V, and great-great-grandson of a Duke of Imperia, as per a treaty arranged by Carolus II, Carolus VIII was of Carolus I's line rather than Carolus II according to the Historia Sarovianorum.

When the administrators and city guards of the Roisian capital opened the gate for their army to return home, they saw neither King Carolus VI, Carolus VII nor an army. News of both kings' deaths had not reached the capital before then, and the city and surrounding kingdom were ungoverned for weeks before the sages and prophets located the closest surviving relatives. This was Jens Argen, cousin of Carolus VII, but because he was a descendant of Joakim of Argen, who refused to renounce his ducal claims by marrying Milla Zor, the nobles ignored him.

Upon ascending the throne, Carolus VIII began a flurry of reforms. News reached the capital that Auel I had fallen ill, which would give the Roisians vast expanses of territory. Carolus VIII rebuilt the army in a new style according to the Historia Sarovianorum, where every 25 soldiers created a Pedites - or an infantry unit, led by a Majorus - a Major. This military system was based on the successes of the State with corrections to its organizational structure that weakened it in the last war. Likewise, the King began the habit of dressing in red – the royal color. Before that, kings wore black, blue or green.

The Historia Sarovianorum is damaged in this section, but other ancient records indicate that Carolus VIII died of poison or disease, days before news of Auel I's death reached the capital.

Imperial York[edit | edit source]

Carolus IX Zor (birth: Alexandros Sherlocus Carolus Felixus Zor) was Royo eui Roisa and the first Imperad eui York following the death of his brother, Carolus VIII Zor. Brother to the former Royo, he inherited his army reforms and, mere days after the death of the former Royo eui Roisa, heard about the death of Auel I of the State.

The State collapsed into a form of military dictatorship with many competing factions - all calling themselves Auel. These factions were the SAFF teams and a conscripted military army. The previous Auel ceded everything north of the Nafets River to Roisa, although, in an attempt to gain political support, none of the state's factions agreed to cede land. This led Carolus IX Zor to go to war over the old treaty and, due to the fragmented status of the State, was able to enter and garrison all the necessary lands without fighting. The SAFF would fall, and many other factions would rise and fall in the same way, with the State virtually ceasing to exist as a solid entity. With York, the site of the battle between Carolus III and Imperia, being a large part of Roisian mythology, Carolus IX made it his capital and oversaw the construction of the towers outside the bridge. Carolus IX also crowned himself Emperor of Imperial York, and received his second name of Sherlocus for his family.

According to the Historia Sarovianorum, the Imperad is considered the second of the Nine Worthies - nine monarchs that future generations should strive to model after. Carolus IX married a former state noblewoman, Eva, Duchess of York, in an attempt to secure his candidacy for Imperad Eui Lauterra. With her, he gained a son, Carolus X Zor. Carolus IX is one of the longest-lasting monarchs in the ancient history of Sarovia, lasting almost two years. According to legend, the Emperor made a pilgrimage to a suspected location in the ancient city of Sar, where Stefan's image appeared above him and announced that his power was weakening in the war against Stéphane, and he had created five Graals and hid them behind the entire Graal. These Graals, when gathered, would grant Stefan the power to return with full force against Stephane.

Carolus IX led campaigns against the Rhodes family - revolting peasants in the capital. Their best general, Sarolus, managed to exterminate 80% of the peasants and forced them to settle as tributaries of Imperial York. Carolus IX died possibly due to the murder of Tsubaki the Mad. Neither the Liber Stefanicus nor the Historia Sarovianorum are clear about his death, except that he was buried in York Bay.

The last monarchs of antiquity[edit | edit source]

Carolus X Zor was Royo eui Roisa and the second Imperad eui York , and distant descendant of King Tristam, King Carolus I Zor and other legendary figures. At this period, modern historians become more confident of the history of these figures due to historical records such as websites and documents becoming more prevalent. He was married to Empress Tsubaki, who’s mental state quickly deteriorated and became known in Sarovian history as Tsubaki the Mad.

Carolus X was an able administrator but poor diplomat, and became increasingly estranged from his wife when the internal struggles of the State came to a halt in the summer of 15 AC. Records indicate Carolus X was a prominent nation builder - he gave the Roisians the orange, white and blue that Sarovians use today by establishing the first national flag. Carolus X likewise commissioned his son, Lord of York, John Sirus Zor, to establish an anthem. The first concept of pre-Sarovian constitutionalism was also born, with a primitive constitutional monarchy adopted for the country, akin to the former State charter.

Records also indicate that the Empire had invaded or had planned to invade south of the River Nafets, and leaving his second infantry unit there to garrison. The Emperor never got to see the plan though, as historical records state he was assassinated by his wife due to the estrangement, and led an empress-consort regency of their son styled as Carolus XI, despite never having the name. Historians always refer to John as John instead of Carolus, despite the official name. Legend says that John I was John II’s brother, who was murdered in infancy, and Tsubaki crowning her second son as the second was in homage to this, though no record proves this. The instability in Imperial York led to a State invasion north of the natural border of the Nafets and, within months, John had thrown off the shackles of his mother and had her decapitated for treason.

When the State besieged York, John appointed the greatest military commander of his grandfather as Marshal of the Empire, Sarolus, the namesake of Sarovia and the third of the Nine Worthies. He was given the impossible job of defending the city, though held on for four months, longer than any other tribe or nation in the State’s onslaught. The Marshal was slain in battle by a State officer, and the next day, John II surrendered the city. While expecting to be treated nicely as a monarch, he was dragged out of the city and hanged on the towers his family had built. The Graal Empire, the Royo eui Roisa and Imperad eui Imperial York died with the extermination of the Zor family, though the Zoar branch remained as aristocrats spread across the continent.

Vasa Dynasty lineage[edit | edit source]

Since antiquity, the Dynasty of Zor-Mako-Vasa extends back to the first Graal monarch, Tristan I, which reinforces the claim that the Sarovian Imperial Family is the oldest and most powerful Imperial family in the World. It is noted that the family was entrusted with the position of "King of Graal" 4 times, showing that Stefan himself placed his seal of trust on the family.

Titles of the Imperial Vasa Dynasty[edit | edit source]

As the years went by, the Imperial Dynasty of Vasa achieved several titles, having them through Treaties, Wars or even claims that would later be recognized as legitimate by the power of the Stefanic Holy See. That said, below are all the titles held by the Imperial Dynasty:

Branches[edit | edit source]

Zor (Zoar) Family[edit | edit source]

The House of Zor (also referred to as Zoar) traces its roots back to the sons of Caesaropope Tristan, the first Graalian King and unifier of peoples. The big difference between Zor and Zoar arose from Carolus I Zor and Carolus II Zoar, who had a naming dispute early in their reigns. Thus, they split as the Legitimist Zoar Branch and the Separatist Zor Branch, splitting the Dynasty. Although the current ruling house of Zor-Mako-Vasa-Nassau must technically be Zoar, the name was shortened to add legitimacy by Aros I Zor-Mako. The Family held the titles of Kings of Roisa (also referred to as Reuss) and Emperor of Imperial York before unifying with the Mako Family.

Zor-Mako[edit | edit source]

The Zor-Mako Branch began when Princess Johanna, eldest daughter of Carolus VII Zoar, married the Comes of Lochland Michael Mako (the title of Comes was the ancient form of address for a current Viscount). From this, he agreed to form a new branch of the Zoar family, emerging the Zor-Mako Dynasty. The Dynasty would become influential throughout Estos as they became the first kings and emperors of Sarovia, and later of New Sarovia. Furthermore, it was the Zor-Mako Dynasty that led the May 21st Revolution against Malum, and most importantly, that gave the name of Constantine to Sarovia. The Mako family gave rise to the symbol of the dynasty, which would be the "Mako Bear", which was widely used in art advertisements at that time. The Mako Bear still plays a prominent, albeit diminished, role in Sarovian art. However, it is possible to notice the Mako Bear in the Coat of Arms of the Dominion of Carolusburg.

Zor-Mako-Vasa[edit | edit source]

The Zor-Mako-Vasa Branch began when Princess Sophia of Vasa, a small kingdom on another continent, married the King of the Sarovians, Constantine IV Zor-Mako. The Marriage was highly political and not very loving, but it allowed their son, the future Constantine V, to adopt the name to gain legitimacy and claims outside the Continent of Estos. The name was shortened, though never officially changed, to just Vasa by Carolus XII Vasa, who disliked pomp, circumstance, elaborate names and titles. The name continued until Constantine VI, who led the New Sarovian Empire into its golden age. Furthermore, the Coat of Arms of the Dynasty was changed under Carolus XII to the Coat of Arms of Vasa, more precisely, a mixture of other ducal coats of arms.

Zor-Mako-Vasa-Oxeria[edit | edit source]

The Zor-Mako-Vasa-Oxeria Dynasty, often shortened to just Vasa-Oxeria, occurred during the union between New Sarovia and the Oxerian Empire from the marriage of William I of Sarovia, and, Emily I of Oxeria, thus, giving rise to the Saro-Oxeria union. The branch and its name were given to all heirs and successors - including Empress Brianna. However, after the dissolution of the marriage, the Sarovian monarchs renounced the Oxerian ethnicity and vice versa. In addition, the coat of arms was never altered by order of William I. Currently, what remains of Oxeria is the title of King of the Oxerians which was granted to Constantine IX by Leila I, the last Oxerian Empress.

Zor-Mako-Vasa-Nassau[edit | edit source]

The Coat of Arms of the Zor-Mako-Vasa Dynasty with references to Zor-Mako.

The Zor-Mako-Vasa-Nassau Dynasty was created from the marriage between Empress Brianna of Vasa, and Emperor Jacob of Nassau. The two agreed to combine their names to form the Zor-Mako-Vasa-Nassau dynasty, which is often referred to simply as Vasa-Nassau. The Dynasty gave the New Sarovian Empire monarchs such as George I, Francis I, Edward II. Under most of its monarchs, the Dynasty's Coat of Arms remained the same until Constantine IX Vasa, who would change the coat of arms to lend to his Zor-Mako ethnicity. However, after the end of the Jacobite Rebellion, the coat of arms would receive a new change and maintaining the official surname only for Vasa. Also, the name "Nassau" is no longer included in the present day, making it just Zor-Mako-Vasa, although by law, the name "Nassau" is present in the title of "Patriarch of Zors, Makos, Vasas and Nassaus".

The Crown's properties[edit | edit source]

The House of Vasa maintains an elaborate and luxurious court wherever its patriarch, Constantine, goes. While palaces like Borhaus and Tre Kronor are public properties, owned by the Government of the New Sarovian Empire (and by extension the Crown), other properties are owned specifically by the House of Vasa and its patriarch.

Continent of Estos[edit | edit source]

  • The Stenhammer Imperial Palace (also referred to simply as Stenhammer Palace) is the favorite palace of His Imperial Majesty, Carolus XIII. Its construction process was very expensive, reaching the value of 22,000 Saros, due to the fact that the Palace has several expensive decorations, as well as its structure made of first-rate equipment.
  • The Borhaus Palace is located next to the Leda Palace which is located in the center of Sarholm. Furthermore, the Borhaus Palace is the seat of the Assembly of Peers and where its meetings are held. It is also worth mentioning that His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor, uses Borhaus Palace for the openings of Parliament and for Speeches from the Throne.
  • The Leda Palace is located in the center of Sarholm, which is the official residence of His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor. The Leda Palace is the private property of His Imperial Majesty where Cabinet Minister meetings and negotiations are held. The Leda Palace became well known during the end of the Second Saro-Aurean War, when, the former Aurean Emperor Kevlar V Vaughn together with his former Dauphin Arnold, signed the famous Treaty of Leda, thus recognizing the New Sarovian Empire as the winner of the Second Saro-Aurean War.

Continent of Orios[edit | edit source]

  • The Rosendal Palace is the official home of the King of Philippia, currently Carolus XIII. The palace was constructed with private finances (37,000 Saros) in May 2021 and is guarded 24/7 by members of the Blue Guard. The palace holds many official Philippian functions, and consists of a library, a lounge, a meeting room for the Privy Council, multiple offices and bedrooms and the Philippian Throne room.
  • Kejsarehall (English: Caesar’s Hall) is a small property in the heart of Rachaelsburg. Where Rosendal Palace allows for state functions, this property purchased for 16,000 Saros is purely private – allowing His Imperial Majesty the Emperor to work in peace and attend prayer at the nearby Stefanic church.

Continent of Boreas[edit | edit source]

  • The Woodchester Lodge and its surrounding crownlands are property owned by the Imperial House of Vasa nearby the towns of Constantia, Silvestre Landing, and Granby. The territory was purchased for a meager 2000 Saros by the Sarovian government in honour of Emperor Constantine IX’s Diamond Jubilee. There is currently construction underway of a cottage to host the family on hunts.
  • The Silvestre Park is built on the island colony of Silvestre Landing in Boreas. It is the summer home of His Imperial Majesty the Emperor, and it well equipped with multiple studies, banquet halls, private rooms and entertainment lounges. It gives a commanding view of the entire island and is built in the early Constantian style for 19,000 Saros.
