Amisos Ilami Locia Syhengohria le Inamne Taramor le Corsia, commonly called Amisos or King Amisos, was a Sengorian king who ruled for 70 years. He is generally considered the wisest and best Sengorian king. Because of his classic book, The Life of Amisos, he has become famous in modern Sengorian culture. The period of time in which he reigned, commonly called the Age of Amisos, was a fruitful and peaceful time in Sengoria’s history, and many people consider it Sengoria’s Golden Age.
Amisos is a member of the official Locia family tree, and his descendants are as well.

Amisos was born during the reign of King Rebert. His mother was Ilifir Inamne Locia, a princess, and his father was an unimportant courtier, though who he exactly was is unknown. His mother died soon after the birth, and his father carried him to Taramor lands, a common practice for royalty. There he was raised by Cunylle Inamne, a Taramor widow. He also met his future wife, Reberta Inamne.
When he was two years old, Pyniiron Ilami, an important advisor to King Rebert, adopted him, though he was not married. He was raised and trained by Pyniiron during this time. Pyniiron had worked as a tutor and trainer of young royalty for a long while, which contributed to the fact that he taught Amisos “exceedingly well”.
Escape to Gourisson
When Amisos was three, Pyniiron attempted to overthrow Rebert and failed. He fled to Gourisson in the middle of the night with the help of his merchant friend Eften Corsia. There he stayed at the house of the Corsia family with Amisos for a while. Pyniiron became involved in the local politics, and started to aid the rebels who were attempting to overthrow the Gourish king. They were successful, but the Egeldish army marched in and took over Gourisson. Pyniiron, Amisos, and the rest of the Corsia family fled to the Corsia summer house in the mountains. Unfortunately, Pyniiron was captured by the Egeldish, and was held prisoner for several months.
During this time Amisos turned four and adopted a seakitty kitten named Sheery. He also became friends with Gundy Corsia, who was his same age. Then the Egeldish army stopped on the other side of the nearby lake while passing through, and Pyniiron swam all the way across the lake to the Corsia house. Then the Corsias fled to the Gourish meadows.
Pyniiron, Amisos, and the Corsias lived in the meadows for four years. During this time Pyniiron thoroughly trained both Gundy and Amisos, and they became good friends. In their third year, Pyniiron married Sagiti Corsia, the oldest Corsia girl. She became pregnant soon after their marriage with twins.
Ascension to the throne
When Amisos was eight, the group in the meadows received a message that the Egeldish had been driven out of Gourisson. Some historians believe that they also received notice that Rebert was having trouble with his reign, but this is disputed. The group then decided to travel back to Sengoria, as their way of passage was now safe.
However, Amisos and Pyniiron were lost (separately) from the main group in a surprise attack by the Egeldish. Pyniiron rejoined the Corsias, but Amisos stayed in the Eastern Gourish Mountains. He stayed there with a group of Gourish rebels for a several months, until Pyniiron came by and managed to find him. Then they traveled to the Gourish coast and stole an Egeldish ship, setting sail for Suclapo.
After arriving in Suclapo, Pyniiron again got mixed up in the local politics. Amisos ended up needing to ride a long ways to warn a village of a coming Egeldish attack. At one point he was captured by the Egeldish army and brought to another side of Suclapo. However, he managed to escape with the help of Pyniiron and his friend Gundy. After this they built a boat from driftwood and began to sail to Sengoria. They did run into the Egeldish and the Katon Ko Vaolki navy, but this was not a major problem.
When the group arrived in Sengoria, Sagiti was nearly to the end of her pregnancy and Gundy was sick with a fever. Pyniiron and Amisos discovered that King Rebert was traveling in a caravan through the hills, an easy target for an ambush. They started out in a small Feni trading town on the coast, where they gathered a large amount of supplies and troops. While traveling through the countryside, they gathered even more troops, and finally arrived where Rebert was. There they captured Rebert and Amisos was declared king by the people. When Pyniiron, Amisos, and their troops arrived at the Lhepynna (Rebert’s palace) Sagiti had given birth to her twins: Kaeta and Minser Aliat.
Amisos was eight was he began his reign. According to many historians, he was an “excellent”, “intelligent”, “clever”, and “caring” ruler with a “healthy dose of causality”. Pyniiron acted as his advisor until he died, but Amisos mostly ruled by himself. He encouraged trade, education, and open-mindedness, often giving out money grants to promising merchants, tutors, and scientists. He is particularly known for welcoming Ghana Tovici, an alchemist and early scientist. Amisos also became known as a peacemaker, as he tied up relationships with nearby countries that had been ruined by King Rebert.
Right after Amisos came to the throne, King Sneppe of Oriansia seized the Nora Mountains and the Great Glacier. Amisos did not notice, as he was having trouble getting himself in place. When Sneppe attempted to also take the Avilak Mountains, Amisos swiftly defeated him thanks to his army of Gourish rebels. Sneppe then declared a heavy fine on any merchants who did trade with Sengoria. Thanks to this Sengoria’s economy began to rapidly go down, so Amisos allowed Sneppe to take back the mountains. He later said, “I was terribly embarrassed that we relied on Oriansia so much…It drove me to try to improve Sengoria’s trade.”
When Amisos was sixteen, Pyniiron died by falling off a cliff. Amisos then married Reberta Inamne, to whom he had been betrothed, and putAmeratsu Qua-Feni in the position of Chief Advisor. Amisos had no trouble continuing on with his reign, and indeed many people believed that he did better after Pyniiron’s death than before it.
King Sneppe of Oriansia died when Amisos was thirty-four. Knowing that the heir to the throne, Prince Thuron, was weak and unpredictable, Amisos quietly took back the Avilak Mountains. These have stayed in Sengoria’s possession to the present day. However, Amisos did not realize that Sneppe had also previously captured the Nora Mountains and the Great Glacier, so he did not attempt to get these.
When Amisos was seventy-two, a Jacian king invaded Sengoria and managed to seize the throne. Amisos fled to Taramor lands with his sons, where his late wife Reberta came from. He lived there for the rest of his life until he died at ninety by falling off a cliff.
Amisos’s mother was Ilifir Inamne Locia, a Taramor princess. Her mother was Istaan Inamne, who had Ilifir with her Taramor husband before he died. Istaan then married King Rebert as part of a treaty. Therefore Ilifir became a princess. However, Amisos’s father is unknown, as all the pages in Ilifir’s diary that mention him were torn out and destroyed. In one part that has survived she refers to him as a “courtier”, but does not mention his name or any other information.
Amisos was raised until he was two by Cunylle Inamne, a wealthy Taramor widow. Cunylle is described in The Life of Amisos as a “fierce”, “tough”, “noble”, and “wonderfully caring” woman. She was previously married to a man from the Ararook family, which were outlaws in northern lands. Later on Amisos lived with her during a rebellion.
Pyniiron adopted Amisos when he was two, despite the fact that he was not married. He trained him “exceedingly well”, even though Amisos was only two or three. Also, Pyniiron shared a lot of his plans with the baby Amisos, which Amisos later said that it “helped [me] a lot”. Amisos first met Sagiti when he was four. Sagiti cared for him “like a mother” and “provided the affection I was missing with Pyniiron”. When Pyniiron married Sagiti, Amisos said that he was “overjoyed”. Sagiti continued to be a comforting and caring parent for the rest of his life.
Amisos had no known natural siblings, but the twins Minser Aliat and Kaeta were born to Sagiti a couple years after her marriage to Pyniiron. While Amisos confesses that they were “terrible bothers” while children, later on they became “good friends and companions”. Kaeta was known to often paint Amisos, and Minser Aliat enjoyed hunting and racing with him. Sagiti had no more children due to a problem during the birth of the twins.
Amisos married Reberta Inamne when he was sixteen and Reberta was seventeen. They had four children, in order of age: Princess Amicors,Prince Shalinis, Prince Elestur, and Princess Pania. Reberta almost died while giving birth to Pania, and was in a coma for several days. However, she recovered completely, albeit without the ability to have any more children. Amisos had a good relationship with all of his children, the exception being Pania, who he was angry at for a while when she married King Rebert.
Amisos made friends with Gundy Corsia, who later became his uncle, while on his trip to Gourisson. Gundy and Amisos continued to be friends until Gundy died in a hunting accident. Gundy’s family guarded King Rebert and also raised Gourish seakitties, one of which Amisos adopted when he was four. Amisos later said of his relationship with Gundy, “With Pyniiron I had to be perfect. With Sagiti I was loved. With Minser Aliat and Kaeta I was a plaything. With Gundy I could talk and play just like I wanted.”
Amisos also had many other friends throughout his reign, including Ameratsu Qua-Feni. He was known for befriending adults even when he was still a boy or a young man. However, he trusted very few people, especially after his supposed friend Askurak Monsili rebelled against him and tried to take the throne.
Tutors and advisors
Amisos’s favorite tutor was Aspelle Feni-Locia, a talented tutor who taught him a large amount about mathematics and history. Pyniiron also advised him a large amount and probably impacted him the most. He also had good friendships with many of his advisors, including Ameratsu Feni-Locia, and his ministers. Amisos was said to “know everybody but trust nobody”.
Amisos’ main enemy was Rebert Yabar, formerly a king. His daughter Pania married him when Rebert was forty and Pania was twenty-one. This angered Amisos, but he forgave her and did not break up the marriage. Throughout his life he also made enemies of many other people, including the former Education Minister Darvy Monsili, whom he described in The Life of Amisos as a “perfect specimen of a stuck-up Monsili lord”. Darvy aided Askurak Monsili in his rebellion against Amisos, but was killed in the fray.
King Sneppe of Oriansia was a main foreign enemy. Sneppe and Amisos never had outright war, despite several skirmishes in the Avilak Mountains, but they had a very tense relationship throughout their reigns. Amisos once described Sneppe as a “horribly clever snake that wants everything for himself”. His sister Kaeta also drew a multitude of insulting pictures of him.
Amisos is known particularly for his classic book The Life of Amisos, which was illustrated by his sister Kaeta and twenty other artists. This book has become a famous classic, and today is read all over the world. He started writing it when he was ten, and finished when he was forty.
Sengoria had not done much trade before Amisos’s time, but when he became king, he began to encourage trade with other countries. He especially wanted many items to be imported from Gourisson, as he enjoyed Gourish products. Amisos also occasionally gave money grants to aspiring merchants, especially those who wanted to do new and exciting things.
Amisos started a program later called the Amisos Feni Education Program, or AFEP, which helped Feni servants to get access to books and other learning materials. He also hired top reading teachers to tutor Fenis in how to read, which led to a huge amount of new books being written and published. Besides this program, he built schools all over Sengoria, trained teachers, and encouraged new books to be written. He himself wrote a history of Sengoria entitled “The Real Story of Calume”.
Amisos encouraged art and hired many painters to work at his court. One of the most famous was Feyran Feni, who worked as a tutor for his sister Kaeta for a little while. Besides painting, Amisos helped some aspiring charcoal artists, as working with charcoal was still considered somewhat strange, and Amisos wanted to dispel this belief. Sculpting also became popular at this time, and Amisos hired several sculptors to decorate the Atisos Amisos Fret, a fretoriod reserve.
Sengoria’s government had been very disorganized during Rebert’s reign, and Amisos did a lot of work in organizing it again. He removed many positions that were no longer needed, such as the position for Minister of Clothes Design, and added ones that were needed, such as the Minister of Seakitties. Besides this, he encouraged relations with other countries, and as he wrote in his book, “endured the finicky, bothersome, and nagging ambassadors”. He also lent Gourisson large amounts of soldiers and money, most of which was not paid back.
