Princess Diana of Latium (Diana Claudia Sophia Victoria Atalanta; 26 September 2018) is the eldest child of Emperor Constantine XX and Alazne Dain. At the time of her birth, she was first in line to the Latin throne; currently she is second.

Birth and baptism

The Imperial Household announced on 30 March 2018 that Emperor Constantine XX and Empress Alazne were expecting their first child. She was born in the Purple Room of the Palace of Augustus on 26 September 2018, at 10:28 WBT, nearly two weeks before her expected due date. Her name was announced two days later, and after much speculation an announcement from the base of the Palatine Hill named the princess Diana Sophia Victoria Atalanta. She is named Diana for her paternal great-grandmother Latin Empress Diana Augusta. Her birth was widely hailed in Latium and Belfras, with a 21-gun salute taking place in Adrianople, and the bells of Sancta Sapientia were rung for nearly two hours.

On 17 December 2018, Diana was baptized by Archbishop of Castellum Theodorus Afinius at Sancta Sapientia, in Castellum ab Alba, using water from the Yarden River. Diana's godparents are Princess Selene of Latium (her father's sister); Isaac, Despot of Mysia (Selene's husband); Martin, Crown Prince of Dakmoor (her mother's second cousin); and Beatrice of Radhenburg (Martin's wife).

In October 2019, the Imperial Household revealed that Empress Alazne was expecting the Imperial couple's first son. On 12 December 2019, she was displaced as Princess of Youth due to the birth of her younger brother.
