Biography

Kingdom (2000-2004)

Válcadác'h became a Talossan citizen on 5 August 2000; his citizenship was granted during a Living Cosa at Jahnhaus, Ián von Metáiriâ's home. Initially a member of the Progressive Conservatives, he served as Seneschal for that party between mid-2002 and the whole of 2003, with a single month break. He had been serving as Distain, and took over follwoing Michael Pope's resignation on June 25.

Válcadác'h was sworn in personally by Robert I at Grecian Delight, in the presence of Puisne Justice Art Verbotten as a representative of the Uppermost Court, Xheralt Conâ and Ián von Metáiriâ. This was the first time since 1995 that the swearing-in had happened in person on Talossan soil.

During his term, Válcadác'h estabilished by Prime Dictate the office of Scribe of Abbavilla in response to John Minot's resignation as Attorney-General; that office used to also handle the Scribe's duties of keeping the "official" versions of the lawbooks up to date.

Republic

On 1 June 2004, he renounced his citizenship to become one of the founders of the Talossan Republic. Válcadác'h wrote the book A Nation Sundered about the experience, chronicling the events that led to the schism and its aftermath.

Post-Reunision

He returned to the Kingdom during the events of Reunision, serving as Minister of Home Affairs in the Da Dhi Cabinet and as Minister of STUFF in the Plätschisch Cabinet. He was a member of the ZRT and is now in the Free Democrats.
