Profession Protector of the Realm
Parents Nicoletta Calderon (mother)


Semyon Calderon (b. ????, d. ????) was Protector of the Realm during the short and pointless Taurian-Canopian War of 2813. The 'war' was an attempt to seize the worlds of Detroit and Rockwellawan from the Magistracy of Canopus for the Concordat shortly after the First Succession War. Semyon was ridiculed by both his military and his people when, after the Magistracy Armed Forces returned Taurian troops, the prior treaty governing those two worlds was ratified again without a single change. Semyon had wasted his nation's troops and treasure for nothing.[1]

After the Taurian-Canopian War, and with the Privy Council and Taurian people having lost faith in his leadership, Semyon would ultimately resign as Protector in 2816. In his place, the Privy Council chose Rayna Arantino to serve as Protector of the Realm, one of the very few times a member outside of House Calderon has held the post.[2]
