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 chief of staff. (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 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.
