HIH Emperor Mother Margaret (formerly known as Lady Margaret Austen between 2011 and 2013, Vicereine Margaret between 2010 and 2011, Empress Margaret between 2009 and 2010, and as Princess Consort Margaret between 2008 and 2009) is an Austenasian imperial who is wife to the former Emperor Terry I and mother of Emperor Jonathan I and Crown Princess Caroline. Currently 12th in line to the Throne, Emperor Mother Margaret is the first person in the Line of Succession not related by blood to her husband, and was appointed one of the two Consuls for 2016 at the start of the year.

After marrying the future Emperor Terry I in 1989, she became his imperial consort when Austenasia declared independence almost exactly 19 years later - originally titled Princess Consort, the style of the wife of the Emperor was changed to Empress in May 2009. She was, while still Empress, appointed Vicereine of the Tincomarus Department of the Slinky Empyre in January 2010, but this position was abolished when the Department was re-annexed by the Empire of Austenasia the following year. She then held the status of a Lady Imperial until her son ascended the Throne in January 2013, upon which she became Emperor Mother. Margaret was appointed Countess of Karanyssia on 17 June later that year upon the annexation of Emperorsland by the Empire, and was made a Privy Counsellor on 12 March the following year upon the foundation of the Privy Council.

Emperor Mother Margaret has starred in Cool Barbie, the flagship sci-fi ATP series. She voiced Old Dog in Cool Barbie VIII (2014), and appeared as Ato in the 2015 Xeaphon minisode.

Titles and styles

  • Reference style: Her Imperial Highness
  • Spoken style: Your Imperial Highness
  • Alternative style: Ma'am

Note: From 20 September 2008 to 14 February 2009 a lack of legislation regarding the styles of members of the Imperial Family meant that titles and honours accumulated onto an imperial's style. As a result, during this period the now Emperor Mother's formal title grew extremely long, although she was still referred to in common usage simply as "Princess Consort Margaret" (until the title of an Emperor's wife was changed to Empress) during this time.
