The Empress and the Empty Set

Empress Jessamine Kaldwin I

The Rulers of the Empire of the Isles hold the title of Emperor or Empress, although in times of crisis a Lord Regent assumes leadership.[1] The monarch or regent typically resides in Dunwall Tower within the Imperial capital of Dunwall in Gristol. A succession of several dynasties have controlled the throne since the Empire's founding in 1625.[2] All known rulers are listed below.
