Tristan of Lower Columbia, formally His Majesty, King Tristan, was the tenth monarch of the Federal Kingdom of Lower Columbia, and the third to be elected to the throne. As such, he was also the founder of Lower Columbia's third royal house, the house of Hart, which takes its name from King Tristan's surname. Tristan's descendants have ruled Lower Columbia ever since his election; the current king, King Zachary, is Tristan's great-great-grandson.

King Tristan is best remembered for his zeal for territorial expansion. In the first decade of his reign, he married his son to the reigning princess of Saint Catherine to unite their two realms, and he conquered most of the Federal Republic of Gudland, which had long been Lower Columbia's nearest neighbor.
