Philippe De Mer


The former half-elf King of Despero, 817 - 922.   King Philipe's reign was defined by a hands-off approach to governing the noble families and their conspiracies. He allowed them to wage the Siege of Anthep without royal approval, so long as some of Anthep's plundered riches ended up in the royal coffers. This style of government led to decades of peace and prosperity within the kingdom, but without a centralized vision for the kingdom Despero was caught completely off-guard by the reshaping of Southern Pescat's borders with signing of the Treaty of Iverburg and the Treaty of Rel-Kadrar within a couple years of each other. Despero's longtime rival Rakka was now ascendant, and its longtime ally was relegated to the history books.   An avid hobbyist with a vast collection of ships-in-a-bottle, he passed away in a struggle to perfectly adjust the mast of an Elflands man-of-war in the winter of 922. His great-granddaughter Ysabel De Mer succeeded him to the throne, the nobles taking full control over the Desperan government in the years-long regency period. Under Luciana Chabert's guidance, Despero would start to deepen its alliances with Sardivelia and the Northern Territories while keeping a careful eye on its disupted border with Rakka.
