Gundrada Joveta was a Hunyago intellectual and 6th empress of the Morphist Imperium. Succeeding Ordway Nodons after his assassination. Her reign, 1100 CE to 1320 CE and then again from 1600 to 1820 CE, lasted for 440 years, making her the longest-reigning empress in imperial history. She was first succeeded by Richomer Willigod and second by Anu Fera after a coup d'état removed her from power.
Joveta was born in South Asoya of a 'double "A" marriage', as the daughter of Bero Joveta, an intellectual and misean in a romantic relationship with an anoist didoli who remains unknown. Raised in the far west for the duration of her childhood. Later learning under Sero Fera around 535 CE. She was, at first, an advocate of Feraism but distanced herself once the tide turned against it. Much like Anshan Cyrus, Joveta stayed in the intellectual circles of Mergen. Teaching morph and non-morphs.
In 1100 CE, Joveta became empress. Signing a temporary peace with the Rovar. With the empires enemies pacified and not at war, her first 40 years saw the inauguration of the 12th Renaissance, a period of peace and prosperity as the empire witnessed it's territorial and economic apogee.
Both the first and second part's of Joveta's reign were more eventful when compared against her predecessors and successors. Fourty-years after signing a peace agreement with the rovar, they discovered the Kingu, a species of humanoid sapients originating from the nuclear-ravaged Panatoria. Led by the Kaimana Kaimbe Necali with support from rovar emperor Tamvis III, her empire faced the unrelenting horde of these newcomers as they ravaged and conquered it's recently acquired faraway provinces. Thus imperial policy eschewed constant conquest to a conservative defensive position from then on. It is here that would see the creation of the new provincial system known as the Theme system alongside it's 'Akritai' border defense units. With another answer being in 1206 CE an exploration team discovered another race with shape-shifting abilities known as the Amurru. With the momentum slowing down coupled by infighting among the kingu and their rovar overlords she took the offensive however retaliatory raids would continue. Her adoption of Malko I, by request, brought morph-rovar relations closer. Internally, her place as empress faced increasing challenge from the military. The court elected thematic general Richomer Willigod who succeeded her in 1320.
In the final 200 years, her second reign at the time of ascension, the galactic situation had since changed. The kingu, once an existential threat, had subsided thanks in part to internal infighting and military success' of the previous century. The imperium now being challenged economically and even militarily by non-imperial powers. 1800 CE saw an event known as the Morphist Deighal, losing the outer-rim territories especially Martu without a single conflict fought. Which consequently was followed up by serious anti-imperialist revolts from the NENNES inspired by events from outside the empire. In 1820 CE, feraist-leaning members of the imperial court overthrew her in a putsch in favor of Sero Fera's great-granddaughter Anu Fera. Fleeing to Panatoria where she died from illness five years later. She therefore did not live to see the full extent of the decolonization process nor the war that proceeded it. Her body was then interred at the Martyrs Memorial in Pangu, Panatoria's capital city, right across her former nemesis Kaimbe Necali, but was later repatriated to Mergen in 1879 CE to be buried in Esid's imperial mausoleum.
Aside from the rada necklace, originating from the final diction of her first name carrying 'rada' at the end, Joveta was a normal looking magenta chroma morph. Wearing the intellectualist robes and later the empress raiment.
