Biography[edit | edit source]
Reman II was born in 1E 2794 and his reign began in 1E 2812 although other sources say he was crowned circa 1E 2806 following Kastav's deposition. Reman's first move as Emperor was to put an end to the Winterhold Rebellion that his predecessor had recklessly started, and did so using swift negotiation tactics.
Reman quickly revealed that he was a skilled tactician and politician and always showed respect to his own men and to his enemies. Whenever he conquered new territory he did so with a careful hand, as to not disrupt local culture and traditions, but mostly to establish good trade. He gathered many advisors from the conquered territories to help him figure out how to rule it correctly. Reman was known as the Emperor who focused on his people more than any other. Under his rule, Necromancy and Daedra Worship was abolished and the Second Empire thrived. However, Reman desired more.
Around the 2830s he ordered the Legions of the Empire to launch a full-scale offensive into Argonia, an event known as the Blackwater War. The campaign proved to be very difficult with many casualties and losses. Only the northeastern parts of the province were captured resulting in Reman declaring an end to the offensive in 1E 2837.
Not content with the annexation of Black Marsh, Reman invaded Morrowind in 1E 2840, engaging in a long series of battles that would come to be known as the Four Score War. He died fighting the Dunmer around 1E 2843 or 2851 at the age of 57. He was succeeded by Brazollus Dor and his descendant Reman Cyrodiil III who would continue fighting the War until its conclusion in 1E 2920.
