Duke Stefan Karameikos III
Ruler of the Grand Duchy of Karameikos. Once a youthful nobleman of the Empire of Thyatis, he traded his ancestral lands for the wild northern region of Traladara – and a guarantee of autonomy. The Empire recognized Karameikos’ claim to Traladara, now renamed the Grand Duchy of Karameikos. The Duke Stefan traveled his duchy, announced his assumption of rulership over Traladara, and put down the armed resurrection which resulted with the help of his brother, Baron Victor “Black Eagle” Von Karameikos. After things settled down, trade flourished and ambitious landless nobles from Thyatis started to settle the duchy after pledging allegiance to the Duke. The early years of the Duke Stefan’s rule were characterized as mostly peaceful and prosperous until the Salt Wars.
