Johnathan Nelson Wythe (born in the Green in c. 1530, died in 1589), known as Lord Holly 1587–1588, was the Duke of Goldshire from 1588 until his death a year later. In Babkha, he was known as Yahya Rahachi.


Born in the Green, Wythe, a wealthy businessman specialising in trade with Shireroth, immigrated with his entire family to the the Imperial Republic of Shireroth in 1586 AN under the promises of ennoblement for himself and his family. He was ennobled as the Baron of Khorze in 1587 AN. Immediately after his ennoblement, he merged Khorze with another territory, forming the Barony of Holly. As Lord Holly, he began enacting a series of wide ranging reforms within Holly. Within weeks, Lord Holly revoked every title of nobility or government appointment in his realm and merged all of the government with the Barony. Later the same year, Lord Holly was appointed the Minister of Immigration and Naturalization by Kaiser Loki IV

In 1588 AN, Duke Jacobus IV of Goldshire abdicated in favor of Gilles Melang. Under the short reign of Duke Gilles I, several laws were enacted which Johnathan Wythe deemed to be discriminatory and unfairly aimed at the Barony of Holly. Because of this, Lord Holly rebelled against Duke Gilles I and declared Holly to be an independent sovereign barony. The Holly War of Independence, as it came to be known, lasted for about a month and ended awith Duke Gilles I abdicating without leaving an heir. To fill the void and restore stability, Kaiser Ayreon II appointed Lord Holly the Duke of Goldshire.

Shortly after his succession to the ducal throne of Goldshire, Johnathan Nelson Wythe abolished the government of Goldshire and installed a brand new system. He also revoked all previously issued titles of nobility within Goldshire.

He also acquired Babkhan citizenship in 1587 and was known as Yahya Rahachi in the empire. In the same year Lord Holly was commissioned as a Sartip in the Imperial Babkhan Army, a rank he held until his death.
