Line 9: Line 9:
 **Ynylla** disappeared somewhere in the vicinity of the [[Palace of the Empire]] in the second year of her reign in 10913. Though some blamed Venone, he was away on royal business in [[Luthaniel]] at the time and could readily disclaim knowledge of it. The fact that the Palace is one of the most heavily guarded buildings in the world, and **Ynylla** went nowhere outside without a large escort added fuel to the conspiracy fires that she was secretly murdered. She was only sixteen at the time of her disappearance. ​ **Ynylla** disappeared somewhere in the vicinity of the [[Palace of the Empire]] in the second year of her reign in 10913.

-**Struan**'​s second daughter [[Yasildra]] came to the throne as **Yasildra I Powyvest** in late 10913. Yasildra, only thirteen, was far more pliant in **Venone**'​s hands than the feisty and independent-minded **Ynylla** had been. Venone ​managed to get **Yasildra** and the [[Council of Prefects]] to legitimise him, thus putting him - at age 58 - next in line. +**Struan**'​s second daughter [[Yasildra]] came to the throne as **Yasildra I Powyvest** in late 10913.

-**Yasildra** was a sickly girl who spent most of her four years in power in her rooms in bed. Historians believe **Venone** kept her ill so she would succumb at an early age but again there is no hard evidence to prove this. **Yasildra** died of fever in 10917, at the age of seventeen. **Venone** then succeeded her and the ambition of a lifetime was made good. +**Yasildra** was a sickly girl who spent most of her four years in power in her rooms in bed. Historians believe **Venone** kept her ill so she would succumb at an early age but again there is no hard evidence to prove this. **Yasildra** died of fever in 10917, at the age of seventeen. **Venone** then succeeded her and the ambition of a lifetime was made good. Shortly after his accession, he embarked on one of the most genocidal and destructive campaigns Aesedra has ever witnessed. One by one, he removed members of his family from duchies and other noble positions, accusing them of plots real and imagined. There were dozens of show trials in [[Kyne]] and witihn several years, there were few Powyvests of royal standing remaining.

 +By the time **Venone** died aged 69 of gout in 10924, there was only his son [[Colsis]] left. He had destroyed one of the most remarkable dynasties in Aesedran history and cemented a place for himself as an irredeemable villain in the annals of history. No emperor or even duke has been named Venone since.
