- For the Duke of Winton-Serisburg, see Michael Winton.
He was born in 1458 PD as the oldest son of Elizabeth Winton and a grandson of Roger Winton, the founder and chief administrator of the Manticore Colony. When the colony was turned into a monarchy, he became the heir of its royal family, and ascended to the throne after his mother's death in 1521 PD. Even though he was not particularly interested in ruling a nation, he did the best he could.
He abdicated in favor of his son, and was still alive at the time of the Volsung invasion that caused the death of his grandson, Crown Prince Richard. Soon after, he had to live through the death of his son and his granddaughter in a boating accident, and the rise of his younger daughter to the throne. Even though his old age made him weaker by the month, he still did his best to council and comfort Elizabeth II in the difficult early days of her reign. When a group of politicians led by Lord Breakwater asked him to consider a return to the throne, Michael outright refused. A short while later, he took part in the meeting during which Breakwater was pressured to abandon his political ambitions and support Elizabeth. (MA2, MA3)
