Gereint XI

From IBWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Gereint XI was two years old when he ascended to the throne of Kemr. His uncle Iewan was the regent, but the younger brother of Queen Victoria never was formally crowned. He died at age twelve from complications due to haemophilia.

"The Boy King" has become a figure of great pathos in the popular imagination, usually portrayed as neglected by his paranoid and power-hungry uncle. It is widely assumed by some that this same uncle murdered the boy. He certainly neglected him in terms of affection or training for the throne.

Legend has it Gereint's ghost sometimes haunts the streets of Castreleon, riding a grey pony searching for his parents.
