Rudolph was born shortly before his father's death. When he died, the power went to his mother, Aïda, until Rudolph was to mature. Aïda, dispite formerly being a housemaid, was accepted as a baroness, and she became very popular among her people because of her fair rule. She too raised Rudolph like this since she knew that he would be her sucessor. When Rudolph was a teenager, he vacationed a lot at the Hochstadt Castle in Osterreach and got to know the citizens there. He eventually decided that he would live in Osterreach, and that he would unite the island under his rule so that he could become king. He went to the Holyswissian Empire's capital of Boorlin to find favor with the Emperor about the plan. The Emperor approved, and Rudolph was crowned King of Osterreach. Rudolph moved to the city of Wien and made it the capital. Rudolph made strong efforts to keep the country unified. He built a strong army of knights, archers, and footsoldiers that kept the peace and put down any resistance forces. Rudolph was also compassionate for the lower classes and heeded their requests by lowering taxes and made food prices cheaper. Rudolph also built a lavish palace that is still there today.

Despite his social attitude, he could not attract any women to fall in love with him. Then, when his younger brother died, Maximilian was forced to marry his brother's widowed wife. Reality had been hard hit for Maximilian, and it is known that his wife made him depressed. More stress was added when his father died, and Maximillian had to maintain Holyswissia, which now ruled over the islands of Osterreach, Alemania, and the whole island of Castilla.

Because of its pleasant weather, Charles resided in Metido, Castilla and made it the capital during his reign. Charles had a hatred towards the countries of Frankterre and Puffle'and and deeply rivaled them. Emperor Charles had twins with his crazy wife, Juana. There was a dispute between which of the twins were hatched first because no one had watched them when they did. Hence, they gave both of them names, Ferdinand and Philip, and Ferdinand was randomly chosen to be the Emperor of Holyswissia because he seemed to be stronger than his brother. Philip was given the position of Crowned Prince. Charles V was considered the greatest king in Castilla's history, but not in Holyswissia. Several Holyswissian barons did not like his rule, and with the help of Frankterran rebels, many of the barons demanded Charles to step down in 1556. Charles agreed, and he made Ferdinand the successor of Holyswissia and he gave Philip the islands of Castilla, Batavia and Liguria because he felt sorry for him in the end.
