|Years Held||2697 - 2701|
Astrid Messer (also Astrid Messer VII) was a ursurpator to the throne of the Empire of Earth. The granddaughter of Corsen Messer V seized control over the Empire in 2697 from her cousin Samuel Messer. A civil war ensued which ended with her assassination in 2701.
Not much is known about her early life. She was the daughter of Gammon Messer the eldest child of Corsen V. Gammon was murdered alongside Corsen in 2662.
She seized power from her aunt Illyana Messer, after the latter died of a sudden stroke in 2697.
During her reign, she expanded censorship, and ordered mass arrests of journalists who spoke against the conflict between her and Samuel Messer, her cousin and rightful successor of Illyana Messer. At the time when Astrid took office, Samuel, and some of his mother Illyana's loyal agents smuggled him away from Earth, and hid him for many years. Eventually Astrid was assassinated by Samual's agents in 2701, leading him to ascend to Imperator.
