Princess Rosamund, Duchess of Jubliak
|Born||18 April 1995|
Royal Bersius Hospital, Fort Bersius
|Spouse||Edwin Lamerthy |
Princess Rosamund, Duchess of Jubliak (Rosamund Sophia Louzar; born 18 April 1995) is the second child and one of three daughters of King Lambertus VII and Queen Rosetta. At the time of her birth, she was second in the line of succession to the Morstaybishlian throne, behind her brother Prince Thadeus. She rose to first in line after his death. She has been the Duchess of Jubliak since 2000. Her husband, Prince Edwin, became Duke of Jubliak after they married.
Rosamund is known for her charitable work, and is a patron of over 200 organisations. She married Edwin Lamerthy in early 2019 and later announced in September 2019 that they are expecting a baby for March 2020. On the 13 of February 2020, the day after she escaped a failed attempt to capture and use her as a hostage, Rosamund had twins, one boy and one girl, by caesarean section, who she named Thadeus Lambertus and Florence Isobel respectively.
Rosamund was born at 23:54 (GMT) on the 18th April 1995 during the reign of her father, Lambertus VII in the Royal Bersius Hospital during a royal visit. She was born a week premature as a result of uterine contractions which came unexpected and held her mother in severe pains until delivery. She spent a considerable amount of her childhood and teenage years with her mother in the royal gardens, caring for their flowers.
When the princess was seven, the royals were convinced of the establishment of a television show by the STV, which was named "Journey of a Princess". The main task was to help prevent depression and influence young female girls where Rosamund would narrate a weekly biography on different aspects of her life. She would cover appearance, how to fight shy of bullying, friendship, and self esteem as well as talk about things that she enjoys. The princess would involve her younger sister Princess Harriet from time to time, playing the role of an assistant.
During her father's reign, Rosamund was the second-in-line of succession to the throne, behind her brother Prince Thadeus. Although her birth generated public interest, she was not expected to be direct heir to the throne, as the prince was still young. Many people believed that he would marry and have children of his own. However, when her brother died in 2017 Rosamund ascended to heir apparent, becoming first-in-line to the throne.
Princess Rosamund has visited many countries around the world, including the Oan Isles; once in 2012 and once in 2017, Axdel; four times since 2012, Kuthernburg; twice since 2014, Furnifold; once, and many others. Rosamund has attended every Sani Bursil Royal Parade. Moments of sadness for her include the death of her aunt in 2006 at age 76; the death of her lover, Lord Rothgerus of Joralesia in 2013; the severe illness of her father Lambertus VII in 2016 and the death of her brother and closest sibling, Prince Thadeus in 2017. Times of personal significance have included her marriage to Edwin Lamerthy in 2019.
The Auroran-Pacific War
In late May 2017, Great Morstaybishlia announced their allegiance with The Oan Isles and Axdel against the Axis. The assassination of Thadeus in early June led to the Princess's rise to heir apparent. During the war, many of Sani Bursil's children were evacuated to avoid the frequent bombings. The suggestion by senior politician Mórekr Lodvig that the royal children should be evacuated to Louzaria was rejected by Rosamund's mother, who declared, "The children won't go without me. I won't leave without the King. And the King will never leave."
Rosamund and her siblings moved to the Visteue Royal House on the 8th of June as an escape to the countryside.
On the ill-fated morning of 13 February 2020, Rosamund was kidnapped to be sold on the black market. She escaped the kidnapping during a holiday with her husband at Ginnerbury Royal House in Dalmaghar, but this trauma sent Rosamund into labour, and she delivered twins hours later; Prince Thadeus, Duke of Korrius who weighed in at 3.6 kilograms and Princess Florence, Duchess of Boscowia who weighed in at 2.5 kilograms.
