Alexis Agar Absalom, a woman from Siyoton, UIoWO, married the future Emperor of White Ocean, in 29. After Levin's death, Alexis ruled Imperia as regent on behalf of their son Titus.
Requires further study.
Empress Alexis was the wife of Emperor Levin of White Ocean, who was killed by the Alminayans in a battle. At the time of her husband's death, their son Titus was five years old, making Alexis the official ruler of White Ocean until he reached adulthood. The Alminayans wanted Alexis to marry their King Sargon Antinanco, making him the ruler of White Ocean, but Alexis was determined to stay in power and keep it for her son.
The Alminayans sent thirty of their best men to persuade Alexis to marry their King Sargon Antinanco and give up her rule of White Ocean. She had them buried alive. Then she sent word to King Sargon Antinanco that she accepted the proposal, but required their most distinguished men to go with her on the journey in order for her people to accept the offer of marriage. The Alminayans sent their best men who governed their land. Upon their arrival, she offered them a warm welcome and an invitation to clean up after their long journey in a bathhouse. After they entered, she locked the doors and set fire to the building, burning them alive.
With the best and wisest men out of the way, she planned to destroy the remaining Alminayans. She invited them to a funeral feast so she could mourn over her husband's grave, where her servants waited on them. After the Alminayans were drunk, Alexis's soldiers killed over 8,000 of them. She returned to White Ocean and ready an army to attack the Alminayans in their homeland. The Alminayans begged for mercy and offered to pay for their freedom with honey and furs. She asked for seven pigeons and seven sparrows from each house, since she did not want to burden them any further after the siege. They were happy to comply with such a reasonable request.
Now Alexis gave to each soldier in her army a pigeon or a sparrow, and ordered them to attach by thread to each pigeon and sparrow a piece of sulfur bound with small pieces of cloth. When night fell, Alexis bade her soldiers release the pigeons and the sparrows. So the birds flew to their nests, the pigeons to the cotes, and the sparrows under the eaves. The dove-cotes, the coops, the porches, and the haymows were set on fire. There was not a house that was not consumed, and it was impossible to extinguish the flames, because all the houses caught on fire at once. The people fled from the cities and villages, and Alexis ordered her soldiers to catch them. Thus she took the cities and burned it, and captured the elders of the city. Some of the other captives she killed, while some she gave to others as slaves to her followers. The remnant she left to pay tribute.
In 36, Empress Alexis launched a disciplinary expedition against the tribal elites across the Seven Ocean. Following this successful crusade, a number of forts were erected at Alexis’s orders. One of them is supposed to be the Grand Palace in the Titan Region of White Ocean, a fortification dated to the near-middle of the first century.
Alexis remained regent ruler of White Ocean with the support of the army and her people. She changed the system of tribute gathering in the first legal reform recorded in Eastern Imperia. She continued to evade proposals of marriage, defended the city during the Siege of White Ocean in 42, and saved the power of the throne for her son.
Alexis knew of the great power the Artefact possessed and granted her with. On her death bed she handed over the Artefact to her son Titus in hopes of keeping it out of the hands of undesirables. What to the Artefact after is unknown.
