Valmir von Raukov, Elector Count of Ostland.

Valmir von Raukov, officially titled Elector Count Valmir von Raukov, Grand Prince of Ostland, Margrave of the Northern March, and Hammer of the East[1b] is the current Elector Count of Ostland[2][3][4][5].

Family

It is rumoured that he had several romantic affairs which produced several sons and daughters, but none of them have been publicly acknowledged[7a]. The count had a romantic relationship with Anastasia, a simple tavern wench working in the city of Altdorf[6], as well as with a Kislevite ambassadress.[1a]

His political marriage with Ivana produced two sons:

  • Vassily, his eldest son and heir apparent.
  • Oleg, who resembled his father in spirit and temperament.

However a recent Chaos incursion led to the disappearance of his wife and to the death of Oleg, his favourite son[7b].

Boris von Raukov

Boris von Raukov is reportedly Valmir's eighth son, probably illegitimate. He left Ostland to pursue a military career. He is currently the captain of the 4th Nuln Halberdiers, a mercenary regiment based in the city of Nuln[8].

History

At the head of his armies he has fought against bandits, barbaric Orcs and Goblins, savage Beastmen, seaborne Norse raiding parties and marauding Chaos warbands. He is widely considered one of the most warlike leaders of The Empire.[3]

Due to unknown reasons the count joined the cult of Sigmar[6]. His conversion led to some unrest inside his province as the majority of the Ostlanders are devout followers of Ulric[6].

After a series of brutal raids by the undead began to strike Ostlander settlements in 2499 IC, Valmir gathered an army and marched into the Middle Mountains seeking the enemy, encountering survivors who told him of unnatural attackers. Unable to locate the undead, he made camp on a large hill beside the river. However, not all his army had arrived, his baggage train was still straggling towards the camp site with a large part of his army. As the sun began to set, the unliving army of Dieter Helsnicht burst out of the forest and across the river. The resulting Battle of Wolfen River was hard fought, von Raukov having to fight in the front ranks of his own infantry until the rest of his soldiers arrived and turned the tide. [3]

In 2515 IC, confronted by a brutal invasion of his province, he called for assistance from the rest of the Empire. Unfortunately the Emperor was in Bretonnia with much of the army, but a coalition was assembled with a relief froce from Nuln under Grand Marshal Ludwig Gutman and a second force under Elector Count Marius Leitdorf marching to their aid. A third force was dispatched by Countess Freya Feuerbach and a council of advisors in the absence of her husband under the leadership of Captain Otto von Brumderhack. [9]
