Otto, known regally as Otto I of Haense (High Imperial: Otto; Hansetian: Otto) was the sixth King of Hanseti and Ruska of the House of Barbanov, ruling for five days before abdicating to his eldest son, Otto II.

Life & Reign

Most of Otto's life he spent his time in service to the crown as Prince and commandant, fighting nearly every war since his brother took the throne. After the failure of the Great Northern War, Otto was forced into exile where he would later spend most of the time as an outlaw soldier raiding the new occupier's settlements along with supply trains. During the Greyspine Rebellion he joined the County of Metterden in their rebellion against the Kingdom of Courland, who had won the Great Northern War.

After the war was over, the Orenian Empire was reformed along with the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska where he commanded the Haenseti calvary during the Imperial wars until its dissolvement. Otto would later take the throne after the death of his nephew ruling for five days where he maintained the peace within the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska before his abdication handing the throne to his eldest son, Otto II.
