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.

Sigismund I's father, Duke Joachim von Neue Stauffen, served as the second emperor's Prime Minister. (LOGH: 'Julian's Journey, Mankind's Journey')


At the beginning of his reign, massive democratic rebellions erupted across imperial territory. The people saw Rudolph von Goldenbaum's death as an opportunity to reclaim the liberties they had lost when the Empire was created and restore the Galactic Federation. But the powerful infrastructure of the nobility, military, and bureaucracy of the Goldenbaum Dynasty was more than a match for the rebels, and led by Sigismund I's father and Imperial Prime Minister, Joachim von Neue Stauffen, the revolts were brutally suppressed, firmly establishing the Galactic Empire as a force that would not waver. (LOGH: 'Julian's Journey, Mankind's Journey')

Sigismund I would ultimately be succeeded by his son, Richard I.
