King Irenicus Blackburn

King Irenicus was the first ruler of Iskandar from the Blackburn Dynasty.

Irenicus Blackburn grew up as an Iskari Baron, and is best known as the ruler who re-united the fractured kingdom after a series of military victories in the Iskari Civil War.

In the year 1087/4, Irenicus succeeded King Ilcanar II of the Cyrenäe Dynasty after he was poisoned.

But before Irenicus could sit the Onyx Throne, he was forced to fight a bloody, twenty-year war against three rebellious noble factions, led by Duke Teraxas Strongfist of Cynara, Duke Varek Bracken of Rhoyden, and Duke Kalfus Mandrake of Vharia.

After an epic quest, Irenicus recovered Foehammer; the lost Elanthir sword of Ilnavel Cyrenäe. Once Irenicus re-claimed the sword, he was destined to become king of Iskandar. Wielding the Elanthir, along with the fact that he was a brilliant war-leader, made Irenicus' victory inevitable.

Today, Irenicus is revered by the Iskari as a great hero.
