Tiberias Calore VI was the sixteenth ruler of Norta. His reign began on August 1, 296 until September 8, 320 NE.[1] He married twice, first to Coriane Jacos, with whom he had Tiberias Calore VII, and then to his second wife, Elara Merandus, with whom he had Maven Calore.

Biography[edit | edit source]

It is said that he loved Coriane deeply and married her without Queenstrial, being the third King to do so. This angered many who had waited for ages for the chance to potentially become the Queen of Norta. Particularly Elara, who later murdered Coriane and became the second wife of Tiberias. He and Elara had no romantic relationship; as it was a purely political marriage. He supposedly loved both of his sons, but Maven had always felt cast aside for his older brother. Maven also had a bigger desire to be king more than Cal. Elara was also angry that Tiberias never loved her son as much as Coriane's. Elara forced his oldest son, Tiberias VII, to murder his father while his youngest son, Maven, stood by and watched; becoming king afterwards.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Tibe had a reputed taste for warfare, making Coriane wonder if he, as the crown prince at the time, would ever live long enough to wear a crown. Later on, Tibe spends what many of the High Houses considers to be too much time with Coriane Jacos, thus falling in love with her. Because Coriane was considered a nobody, this slight change in marriage angered many High Houses, particularly Houses Samos, Merandus, and Osanos. Cal, his son, inherits his father's taste for warfare.

Physical Description[edit | edit source]

Tiberias had inky black hair with flecks of grey, and eyes like fire. He was broad-shouldered and muscular, and he often wore a black and red military uniform with medals. He frequently wears a gilded sword despite the many guards around him. Coriane described him has being "handsome in his own way" with a strong jaw, expressive golden eyes, and a mischievous smile. When Mare sees him for the first time she notes that "even from behind, he's much fatter than he looks on the coins and broadcasts, but also taller."[2]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Coriane Jacos[edit | edit source]

Coriane and Tiberias' marriage was a true love match, a rarity among the Silver Elite, and even more rare for a monarch. Coriane fell in love with him because he made her feel safe.
