Hardestadt’s early days go back to Bavaria where he rose to become the predominant Ventrue in the Holy Roman Empire. When the Inquisition came, Hardestadt managed to escape almost unscathed unlike many of the other elders of the clan. This left him in the prime spot to speak against the Anarchs and eventually create the Camarilla, putting the Anarchs under his boot with the convention of thorns. All of this allowed Hardestadt to reorganize the hierarchy of the clan and lead it to become the clan of kings it is today.
The whereabouts of this Elder are a tightly guarded secret.
