The Black Emperor (feminine equivalent being Black Empress), formerly the Black King of Ebonheart is the ruler of the Wastelandic Empire and the head ofHouse Blackgard of Sunhold. Following the Massacre at Ebonheart, Steffon Blackgard, Trevyr Blackgard's grandson and the killer and nephew Lord Eddin Blackgard, crowned himself the Black King and declared the Borderlands a sovereign state, ruling from the grand palace of Ebonheart. Following the Great Council of 305 AC, Emeric Blackgard reformed the title as he conquered the Free Cities.
