I make it a habit to kill all the people at court who do not want to usurp me, as they are principled fellows and so eminently more dangerous than your average conspirators. Dread Emperor Iniquitous, first of the ‘Mayfly Emperors’

Iniquitous was a former Dread Emperor of Praes. He was the first of the ‘Mayfly Emperors’ which might refer to a brief Imperial dynasty, where three Emperors from the same family reigned in succession. The family was wiped out to the last when the third Emperor was overthrown.[2]
