*Vilhelms ‘The Lesser’ II-1040 to *
Living perpetually in the Shadow of his father, the second king of Telva is generally considered to have had his own virtues, but to have continually over-reached.

The Youngest of three Sons of Vilhelms the Great, Jānis took the throne at the ripe age of fourty eight, and went on to have, suprisingly, one of the longest reigns of the Telvan kings. What started as a joke, became a mark of respect, and he is considered to have consolidated many of his Father and Brothers win, as well as staving off several Kef incursions and encouraging the arts and learning within the Realm.
