Personal history

Born to a wealthy family in Ligten, politics have always been a major part of Potesm's life. Potesm has enjoyed wealth and influence from birth, and took full advantage of it to join the military with some ranks under his belt, and he quickly rose to the rank of captain. However, he and his forces were assigned to protect the city of Atrad, which was at the time well within Dregian territory, and not at much risk. Then, in a successful Augustian campaign shortly thereafter, the front was pushed right up against Atrad, and its key position as an access point across a large river into Dregia meant that Potesm's defense would determine the fate of the country. But to the nation's relief, it became apparent that Potesm's ascension to authority wasn't all because of his money and background, because the Augustian siege was dragged out into the long, cold winter, and in a bold move, Potesm sallied out of the city at night and forced the freezing, starving Augustians home and away from Dregia. After that and other grand military successes, he grew to replace the Supreme Commander of the Dregian Army, where he would serve for a decade. Then, as King Trutis began to age, the Provincial Electorate decided that Potesm should become the next King of Dregia, and he was pronounced Prince of Dregia until King Trutis dies and he can succeed him.
