Gainibu III was the king of Valmiera and the emperor of its provinces and colonies during the Derlavaian War.[1] Despite his army's best efforts, Valmiera fell to Algarve in short order.[2] Gainibu was captured in the palace.[3] He remained an Algarvian puppet for the duration of the occupation.[4] He was forced to appear in public by his captors, who enjoyed making him pay for his father's actions during the Six Years' War. Gainibu helped by drinking himself into a stupor whenever possible.[5] When Valmiera was liberated, Gainibu reasserted his rule, and took revenge on those who collaborated with the Algarvians.[6]
