401 AD







Giselher is a Seventh Generation Cainite of Clan Ventrue. He is the childe of Agrippa, a former Roman general and governor. His grandsire, Julia Antasia, also acted as a mentor in his early nights.


His sire, Agrippa, had built the city of Cologne, Germany at the height of Rome's power and made it his home. When the legions of Rome retreated across the Rhine river in the year 401 AD, the Cainites (along with Agrippa) went with them. The city was abandoned to the Franks. It was this time when Agrippa embraced Giselher, a Burgundian prince, but it would be 400 years before this new childe would be set on the task of reclaiming his beloved city on the Rhine.

In 860, Giselher and a coterie retook the city from a group of Christian mages. They used a gang of mortals to burn the mages out of their cathedral-chantry. The city was reclaimed for the childer of Caine once again, with Giselher as the new Prince.

Prince of CologneEdit

At some point before 1230 AD, members of Clan Lasombra attempted to usurp his power. This earned the Lasombra his resentment, granting them no audience or succor in his Domain while he ruled thereafter. His connections with Clan Nosferatu are particularly strong: protecting and supporting the Lepers in his domain. He rules with a calm, even hand, as taught to him by his grandsire, Julia Antasia, who ruled in nearby Frankfurt. Because of this, Cologne became a center of commerce for the Kingdom of Germany and a meeting place for Cainites across Europe in the Dark Medieval.


Giselher's fate after the Dark Ages remains unknown.
