While never commented on within Constancian media or in official Constancian channels, ¡Oye Oye! scored a major international scoop in XIII.1696 when it posited that The Prince Iñigo of Molivadia and Arboria was father of a 6-year old child, and is likewise father to a daughter from another mother of Nouvelle Alexandrian nationality. Defamation litigation is ongoing.

On 18.XIV.1706 AN Iñigo was promoted to the rank of Arteshbod (General) and appointed officer commanding of the Aqaba Banner Command, as a part of the Autokrateira's consolidation of control over the Trans-Euran Continental Theatre Command under the cover of Operation Landslide. Iñigo established his forward headquarters at Arete for the duration of the campaign.
Attending at the Shahyiar Palace in Mehrshahr on 11.XIII.1709 AN, Iñigo was presented with Amāstris of the Suren, the seventeen year old daughter of the late Surenshah, Dāryuš, who was gifted by her aunt Mitradokht. Finding her pleasing, the wedding contract between the houses of Santiago-Santanger and Suren was signed under the watchful eyes of the Autokráteira of Constancia, Esmeralda al-Osman, and the Committee of Euran Salvation. The ceremony of matrimony, to be conducted at Raspur, upon the payment of the agreed dowry, was to occur by no later than 1.I.1710 AN. This union produced issue in the form of Farrukhān in 1713 AN.
His dismissal as Mesazon on 1.I.1710, and replacement by the venerable geriatric Garvin Hendriksson, was inexplicable to many observers - leading to rumours that it had been a consequence of his decision to accept the Surenid match when the Autokráteira had already selected another bride for her son.
