Ioan ren Alexandru II of Vatharond is the king that was appointed to Vatharond by Noran council after its rightful king was killed by mountain giants. Though King Ioan has Vathroni ancestry, he is third generation Fainish and so does not have the favor of many of his people.

History


Ancestry

Unlike all the other historical kings of Vatharond, Ioan is not descended from the Blue Dragon Tribe.

Early years

Son of Rhisiart and Opal Alexandru, Ioan was born in Castle Parch, Ilefain.

Born the second of three brothers and a younger sister. His eldest brother, Robin, died when he was twenty in combat.

During his youth, Ioan met and fell in love with Anabelle Frisure. Ioan's mother, Opal, wouldn't allow the relationship, though they continued to have secret affairs during their youth.

Knighthood

In 1361, when he was nineteen, Ioan took on vows and became a knight of Ilefain. Ioan's duty took him far from Anabelle and they were unable to see each other.

Kingship and rebellion

After the death of Bjergen King in 1367, Nicolas Loria researched the family lines and came to find Ioan was the closest relation to the late Vathroni king. Ioan was crowned King of Vatharond in 1370. He was able to use his new found royal status to marry his childhood love, Anabelle that same year.

Ioan appointed the mysterious Ryszarda the Red as his chief adviser.

In 1377, Ioan's son Prince Haakon Alexandru was born.
