Titus Mede came to power after the Oblivion Crisis and Martin Septim's sacrifice, which ended the Septim Dynasty. After some time, Mede took the Imperial City by force with less than 1,000 men, usurping the current emperor at that time, Thules the Gibbering, and becoming Emperor of Tamriel. Firstly he was seen as conqueror, unworthy to be the Emperor. Most members of the Elder Council were in favor to Thules but Titus's close associate Hierem convinced them to see Titus more as liberator than conqueror.
