Michael I of Lower Columbia, formally His Majesty, King Michael during his lifetime, was the fifth monarch of the Federal Kingdom of Lower Columbia, and the first monarch of the Kingdom of Upper Columbia. He was the last monarch of Lower Columbia's first royal house, the house of du Loup, which was founded by Michael's great-great-grandfather, King Edward. Reclusive for much of his reign, Michael I attracted a great deal of criticism in his last few years on the Lower Columbian throne due to his economically destructive policies, as well as his attempts to silence his critics by criminalizing lèse-majesté. Consequently, he became the only Lower Columbian monarch to be exiled by Parliament. His decidedly poor reputation in Lower Columbian history earned him the nickname Michael the Terrible.
