Elliana I (Elliana Ina Louise Sarissita; 23 November 1849 – 11 December 1938) was the Empress of the Cacertian Empire from 14 March 1875 until her death. She was crowned Queen of the Unified States of Cacerta and Queen of the Kingdom of Allamunnika in early May 1875; Elliana would later create the union between the two monarchies that eventually resulted in the foundation of the Cacertian Empire.

Elliana was the daughter of King Victor I, who had led a successful military campaign to unite the Cacertian Isles, and Queen Mary IV of Allamunnika. She inherited the throne from her father at the age of 26 as the eldest child of her parents and became a national icon as a result of her youth and charisma. Elliana’s time as Empress was characterized by her military and cultural ambition, making Cacerta a regional military power and introducing social reforms that would lay the foundations for the modern society that the Kingdom possesses today. Her rule of Cacerta for 63 years makes her the longest-reigning Cacertian monarch in Cacerta’s history.

She is considered, by many historians, to be one of Cacerta’s and Allamunnika’s most successful rulers as both nations saw extensive advancements in scientific, industrial, and military technology during her reign. Elliana remains a very popular figure in Cacertian culture. The later years of her rule, however, were marred by the collapse of the union between Allamunnika and Cacerta as well as a number of costly wars that eventually led to the Empire’s dissolution under her granddaugher in 1940.

Childhood to Adult Life


Elliana was educated by a number of tutors hired by her father during her childhood and for much of her adolescent life. Even after reaching the age of sixteen, considered the age of adulthood at the time, Elliana was keen on reading various books and continuing to be educated by her tutors. Given her father’s background as a military commander, Elliana also developed an interest in military matters and often spoke with the Royal Guards in both Allamunnika and Cacerta as she grew up.

Personal Life

Elliana lived a balanced life that included both the politics of her massive Empire and the fun-loving nature that characterized her personality. She was also noted for being an extremely quick thinking and tactful ruler, often observing the combat performed by her generals and providing them with criticism following the close of their battles.

She had her first child, Johanna Sarissita at the age of 21 with Royal Guard Alessandro Danzi, before she married Dante Trento in 1874. Her second daughter, Agnese Sarissita, was also a result of her relationship with Danzi.

Declining Health and Death

Empress Elliana died on the evening of 11 December 1938 as a result of her advanced age of 89 years. The Royal airship, Lionheart, carried her coffin through the skies of Vichenza until reaching its outskirts of the city where her father was buried. Her funeral, held three days later, was a major state affair and she was interred in the Sarissita family tomb at the Palazzo Vichenza.
