von Goldenbaum Rudolf

Japanese name: ルドルフ・フォン・ゴールデンバウム
Rudolf von Goldenbaum was the founder and first emperor of the Galactic Empire. He was born in 268 UC and died in 42 IC at the age of 83



"Until Rudolph von Goldenbaum got his hands on power, even if he was rather self-righteous, perhaps he was no more than a reformer burning with ideals and conviction. That changed completely once he had authority. He travelled the road from simple self-affirmation to self-deification." -Free Planets Alliance Secretary of the Treasury, João Rebelo.

Centuries after his death, Rudolf would be remembered by people throughout the galaxy. In the Free Planets Alliance, he served as a symbol of utter tyranny and evil, a warning to all free democratic people of the dangers of autocracy. In the Empire, he was a hallowed figure. The holy founder of the greatest nation in human history, and a symbol of imperial power.

To Yang Wenli, Rudolf was a constant reminder that political and military authority ought never be mixed. On the other hand, although Reinhard von Lohengramm disapproved of Rudolf himself, his methods served as an inspiration — his life's accomplishments teaching Reinhard that one man could change the galaxy; that if one does not like the world, one has the power to change it by ones own hand.
