He was treated with the utmost respect by those around him and would be well educated by some the best teachers in the empire at the time.

He manage to turn the tide in his favor for a time, but he would lose the war as he would captured during the Siege of Seres bring to the end of the war. With his allies and resources scattered to the wind he could nothing but wait for the envitable. After several weeks of house arrest he would be tried for treason and executed.
