Kaiser Hasan I, also known by his Babkhan birth name Hesam Jahandar was a Babkhan nobleman, born in 1470, who became kaiser of Shireroth 1537–1542 and duke of Elwynn for a short while in 1541. He was murdered in 1542 in Ardashirshahr. He had previously been Grand Vizier of Babkha twice, 1488–1491 and 1531–1536 where he was aligned with the Behsaz Party.

In 1535, he decided to explore his Hyperborean–Shirerithian origins and applied for Shirerithian citizenship. He aligned himself with the Babkhis of Ardashirshahr. Duke Harald of Froyalan (Elwynn) took a liking to the Babkhan nobleman who had newly made a name of himself in Elwynn, and appointed Hesam Jahandar to Count of Hyperborea in 1536, a title that Hesam held until his death in 1541.

Reign

After Kaiser Mors V's reign had ended, it was assumed by the political cadres in Shirekeep that he would be succeded by his Steward Jacobus Loki. Surprisingly, Hesam put his name forward. He received support from the wealthy Babkhis, the Froyalaners, and Hyperboreans, even getting the Shining Garden to officially support him. Jacobus Loki declared himself kaiser, too, but Hesam quietened Loki's dreams by unofficially promising him the kaisership. As such, Hesam became the undisputed kaiser as Kaiser Hasan I.

During his reign, Kaiser Hasan sought to reform the imperial government of Shireroth, particularly in terms of strengthening the treasury and ensuring productivity throughout the empire. Shireroth's economy grew unprecedently (possibly thanks to the Babkhan bureaucrats replacing the old guard). However, by 1539, Shireroth was pulled into the War of Jeremy's Nose. Thus the attention of the Kaiser and his government was there. In the end, the Kaiser brought victory.

In Babkha, Kaiser Hasan I, in a ceremony before the Shah, Rashid Shahanshah, just days after being confirmed kaiser, ceded the sovereignty, along with the Sword of Vengeance, to Rashid and the Babkhan state. From that point forward, in Babkhan law, Shireroth was a feudal vassal state to Babkha. Kaiser Hasan's successor on the Golden Mango Throne, Rashid Shahanshah himself, adhered to this, and successive Babkhan governments continued to claim the sovereignty of Shireroth, not recognizing any other kaisers as legitimate. This did not cause any problems for a close relationship between Babkha and Shireroth however.

In the end, Ardashir killed Hasan at the Palace of One Thousand Columns in Ardashirshahr. In Hasan's last will and testament, Rashid was to succeed him. Loki, who had been promised the kaisership after Hasan, declared yet another "government" as Anti-Kaiser, but he was quickly brought back to sanity.

Family

Born Hesam Jahandar in Sajin in 1470, he was the son of Morvarid Arashi and Dilshad Jahandar. His mother, Morvarid, was in turn the daughter of Leila Arashi, a Babkhan noblewoman who had married Avri Kalirion, the third son of Kaiser Los I who lived 1421–1469.

Hesam Jahandar had two wives, one simply called Shahbanu Jahandar in official records ("Queen Jahandar"), her real name unknown, and Bahar Namvari. He had a son by each, Hesam Jahandar Jayatar (named after himself), and Cyrus Namvari-Jahandar.
