Profile[edit | edit source]
As a Crest bearer, Lambert ascended to the throne of Faerghus over his older brother Rufus sometime before Imperial Year 1162, when his son and heir Dimitri was born. Around that time, a plague swept through Faerghus and claimed the life of Lambert's first wife, the queen consort. The mage and reputed holy woman Cornelia cured the plague, and out of gratitude, the royal family took her into their service.
Around 1168, Lambert personally led a campaign to subjugate the peninsula of Sreng to the northeast of Faerghus, with Lord Rodrigue serving as his right hand. The conflict resulted in the Kingdom's annexation of the southern half of Sreng.
In 1176, King Lambert was assassinated in the Tragedy of Duscur. With Crown Prince Dimitri too young to ascend to the throne, Lambert's elder brother, Grand Duke Rufus of Itha, assumed regency over the Kingdom.
