Empress Nicholle

Eleventh in the line of emperors of the Imperium. Oldest issue of Martin V . Born 401, proclaimed empress in 457, assassinated in 475 by Cleon IV . Second empress to hold the throne.

The fact that Nicholle was assassinated by her successor is indicative of the strained fabric of the Imperium in those days before the Civil War and the Barracks Emperors. The incident, and the pressure of certain member worlds of the Imperium led to the establishment (now somewhat discredited) of succession by the right of assassination.
