Sigismund I (Japanese: ジギスムント1世) was the second kaiser of the Galactic Empire, Sigismund I ascended to the throne at the age of 25. As Rudolph von Goldenbaum's only son, born to his mistress Magdalena, was rumored to have suffered from a congenital birth defect, Sigismund, son of Rudolph's eldest daughter, was named emperor.
At the beginning of his reign, massive democratic rebellions erupted across imperial territory. The people saw Rudolph von Goldenbaum's death as a sign to reclaim the liberties they had lost when the Empire was created. But the powerful infrastructure of the nobility, military, and bureaucracy supporting the Goldenbaum Dynasty was more than a match for the rebels, and led by Joachim von Neue Stauffen, they brutally suppressed the revolts, firmly establishing the Galactic Empire as a force that would not waver.
