Duke John Verrucosus (b. 19 September 1957) is a Latin nobleman and businessman. He is the eldest child of former Consul Arcadius Verrucosus. He is Chairman and CEO of Verrucosus Holdings.

He has served as Executive Vice President of Verrucosus Holdings, while sitting on its board of directors since 1983. He had a brief tenure as Count Palatine of Theodorias–Scipia, eventually resigning to serve as named Executive Vice President of Verrucosus Holdings.

Early Life and Family

Verrucosus was born on 19 September 1957 to Arcadius Verrucosus and Lady Damiane Vitruvia, at Villa d'Iulia Concordia, the newly purchased family estate, in Utica. He has three siblings, a younger brother Florentine, and two younger sisters, Adula and Zoe. Verrucosus has little in the way of notable ancestors on his father's side, with his grandfather Pelagius working as a farmer until his own death in 1979. His maternal grandfather is Duke Thomas Vitruvius, along with other prominent Latin noble families.


Verrucosus attended Lyceum Sanctus Michaelis for both primary school and secondary school. He was a member of the schools debate team during secondary school, earning a national runners-up award in 1976 and 1977, eventually winning the national youth championship in 1978. He attended Alba School of Economics and Business where he studied economics. During his time at Alba, he was a member of the university's Conservative Party student chapter and was quickly elevated to a leadership role, which proved to be a large controversy during his first year.

Verrucosus took a nine-month gap year following the conclusion of his first full year at Alba. For the first three months he worked as a researcher at the Conservative Party headquarters in Castellum, the next three months he spent working at an internship at Verrucosus Industries, and would later spend the last three months touring the surrounding countries, with visits to Fakolana, Lyncanestria, and Arthurista.
