Bio:

King Uther Pendragon was the ruler of Logres and member of the Supreme Collegium between 480 and 495. He was also king of Logres, taking on the role after the death of his brother Aurelius Ambrosius.

King Uther died at the infamous feast after the Battle of St Albans. As he died without an heir (except the son which Merlin kidnapped) his crown was left unclaim until 510, when High King Arthur Pendragon was proclaimed king of Logres, and more notably in 512, when he was proclaimed Uther’s heir.
