Biography

Early life

Antonius, born as Antonius Owyn Horen, was born to Augustus I and Helen Horen in the Imperial Capital of Carolustadt within the year 1691; at the time of his great-grandfather, Aurelius I, reign.

In 1694, when he was only 3 years old, his great-grandfather, Aurelius I, abdicated the Imperial Throne to his grandson and Antonius' father, Augustus I. As a result of the abdication of the young prince became the Crown-Prince of the Empire of Man.

At the age of eleven, Antonius started to train in swordsmanship under Sophia Halcourt, Grand Knight of the Empire, and Prince Cassius Horen, the former Grand Marshal of the Imperial Legion, slowly becoming adept in the art of warfare, like his grandfather Prince Antonius of Renatus-Marna. Just two years after the young prince started to train in the art of warfare he led three seperate raids on the Princedom of Fenn and one on the Federation of Sutica.

Reign

Upon his father's abdication Antonius succeeded to the throne of the Empire of Man in 1706, though not crowned until the 3rd of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1707 at the tender age of sixteen. His reign, while generally viewed as a continuation of the status quo, was in its ending years marred by the Sacking of Ves, which would eventually be cited as a chief reason for the War of Two Emperors. He officially abdicated and declared the Empire dissolved just a month after his regency council declared him in abstention and announced a new emperor in Godfrey III, in the year 1715.
