Atreus Atreides - Fanart

Count Atreus Atreides Atreides (4498 AG - 4641 AG) was a descendant of Emperor Estil I (in the female line) and the first ruler of the House of Atreus Corrino.

He rallied the Sardaukar around his claims and mounted a coup d'état in early 4552 AG proclaiming himself Emperor, ending the First Republic.

He appointed his cousin, Duke Pausanias VIII Atreides, as Siridar Duke of Gallatin. Other surviving members of the family received lesser titles.

He made serious attempt to reform the bureaucracy and merge the institutions and reforms of the First Republic with the old imperial structure. These reforms lasted as long as he was personally seated on the throne.

He was succeeded by his son, Mikael II.
