Earnfledoan, Tilgeofu
Description Tilgeofu Earnfledoan was the younger of the twin sons of Emperor Earnfled; his older brother was Osgeofu. Emperor of the Fretheod Empire for thirty years, from 2215 ID to 2245 ID. A civil war was started to keep Osgeofu from the throne by people who believed that Tilgeofu would make the superior emperor. Osgeofu ascended to the throne anyway upon the death of their mother, Earnfled. Tilgeofu became emperor when his brother committed suicide after smashing the Yrmenweald. The civil war all but ended upon Osgeofu's suicide, but Tilgeofu still had to contend with its aftermath. He spent his reign trying to hold together an empire that was slowly beginning to die due to the absence of the power that had been the Yrmenweald.
