This article is about the royal epithet. For other uses, see Storm King (disambiguation).


Storm King is a so-far-ill-defined position that seems to entail ownership of the Muses, headship of the Knights of Jove and "rightful" rulership of Europa. Of course, rightful really only means what people think it means, anyway...

Its first (and, apparently, only known[1]) holder was Andronicus Valois, and it appears the title was created for him specifically.

If it's hereditary, Prince Tarvek Sturmvoraus may be entitled to the position — he certainly seems to think so[2], and has convinced the Muses Tinka, Moxana[3] and recentlyOttila — and the recent production of Portentius Reichenbach's The Storm King may represent part of a propaganda campaign to that effect.[4]


Questions and Theories Edit

Possibly relevant outside information Edit

A Imperial Stout from Victory Brewing named Storm King

The title Storm King appears to correspond to the Sun King, aka Louis XIV of France in our world.

Particularly relevant from the Wikipedia article is this:[5]

...he was associated with Apollo Helios, the Greco-Roman god of the Sun. This is also fitting because, as patron of the Arts, Louis was, like Apollo Musagetes, the "leader of the Muses".
This connection has now been confirmed.
