Rorik III, also referred to as Rorik the Conqueror, was the first King of Salovia, and is most well-known for uniting the Suvolic and Kveshi Empires into one through the assassination of his predecessor Rorik II and marriage to Ennala, Rorik II's daughter. His ascension to the throne marked the end of the Azure Wars, but also saw major resistance from a number of Suvolic and Kveshi factions and houses. Much of his eleven year reign was spent reuniting these factions and houses into the Salovian sphere, with mixed success. The most prominent failure was the successful independence of Oceansend from Salovia, and territorial losses in the empire's west.
