Traveller™Emperors Of The Flag
Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
During the Civil War period (604 to 622), the Imperium was in the hands of a succession of naval officers of flag (Admiral) rank. These eighteen emperors achieved the throne through assassination, fleet action, political maneuvers, and general mayhem.
The years 618 to 619, particularly, saw seven emperors serve on the throne, none of them for more than three months.
The succession of Emperors of the Flag began with the seizure of the throne by Admiral Olav hault-Plankwell in 604, whose action precipitated the Civil War.
The Emperors of the Flag are also (disparagingly) referred to as the Barracks Emperors.
