Fleven the Glorious was the first High King of an independent Neuewland following the complete collapse of the Zeevolk Empire in the wake of the death of Emperor Erenic Khepri and led Neuewland through the succession wars among the many claimants to the throne. At the age of 18, he was coronated by the Ketawrymkiist in Alethshaven, and would lead Neuewland into a golden age, which would be continued by his successor, Emperor Ghiner.

His reign was marked by almost incessant warfare among the many feudal lords of Neuewland, along with attacks from groups on the mainland of Avistava and Neranian adventurers from Atracia. As High King, he suppressed the fighting between Neuew feudal lords, fought off many raids and attacks from foreigners, and carved out the path for Neuewland to follow in the following centuries. He was the first of what became known as the Ipiranis dynasty to the Neuew, the dynasty of the Spirits of the Hunt, due to his mastery at hunting and archery.

After his death from a mangonel in 835, he was quickly succeeded by his son, who had been taught extensively by his father on how to rule, and whom led Neuewland through the rest of their golden age. He is honored throughout Neuewland today, and many consider him to have been a Minor god, with his lineage retaining parts of his divine soul.
