Constantia Caprenia, Countess Vinovium (Flavia Caprenia Antistia Constantia Honoria Rhode; b. 27 November 1999), commonly known as Lady Constantia, is a Latin noblewoman and heir to the March of Espo. Constantia is the daughter of Honoria Caprenia, 6th Marchioness of Espo and her former husband, Latin footballer Alexander Antistius, though since the 2016 Latin succession crisis is rumored to be the child of Latin Emperor Jason VI Augustus.

Constantia's family is most known for their role in the recent Latin succession crisis, where her eldest brother, George, attempted to claim the Latin throne. Constantia and her mother were briefly detained by Vannoisian military officials during the crisis for her brother's role and was later transferred into Latin custody where she was released and received a full pardon.

Early life and education

The Caprenii ancestral estate, Villa Caprenii, in Espo where Constantia was raised.

Caprenia was born on 27 November 1999 in Velia, Castellum ab Alba to Honoria Caprenia, 6th Marchioness of Espo and Latin footballer Alexander Antistius. Caprenia was baptized into the Fabrian Catholic Church by her uncle, Bishop Theodosius Caprenius of Oescus; Bishop Caprenius is also her godfather. She was primarily raised in Espo, where her mother's familial estate, Villa Caprenii, is located. She was raised alongside her two elder brothers: George and Alexander.

Caprenia attended private schooling in Espo, before attending Pescia Academy in Adrianople for her final two years of secondary school. She reportedly struggled early on in her education and is believed to suffer from dyslexia. She completed her secondary education in 2015, whereafter she enrolled at Kyrenia College for the August 2016 term. She attended classes at Kyrenia for the first two months of the August 2016 term, though since November 2016 has taken a leave of absence and not attended classes since. In a recent interview, Constantia stated she "would like to return to university," but has not ruled out transferring elsewhere.

2016 succession crisis

On 3 November 2016, Constantia was away at Kyrenia College when news first broke of the death of Emperor Jason VI Augustus. She reportedly returned to Espo the next day after being sighted at Villa Caprenii by residents of nearby Espo. She is reported to have been at Espo during the brief skirmsih between her brother's single legion and Vannoisian expeditionary force. Villa Caprenii was razed during the skirmish. Afterwards, Constantia was placed into Vannoisian custody until she was turned over to Latin officials on November 27, according to records from the post-crisis investigation.

Since the succession crisis, Constantia has resided in a Ianiculum, Castellum-based townhouse.

In 2018, she enrolled at the University of Ghish
