|Pápež Tomáš IX|
Tomáš IX (3789-3875) born Yacob Haymanot is the Pápež of the Terran Patriarchal Church, serving since 8 August 3865. He previously served as Secretary for General Affairs (3840-3865) Archbiskup of Domale (3841-3865), Pápežsky Nuncio to Cobura (3836 -3841)and other positions.
Yacob was born to a wealthy merchant family in Cobura. He displayed a religious inclination coupled with high intelligence from an early age. In 3812 he graduated from the Patriarchal University of Western Deltaria with a degree in Canon Law and three years later he earned his Doctorate in Canon Law. He began working in the Vatikan's Legal Department, rising swiftly.
Tomas IX' s papezate was dominated by the 'reform question.' He gradually reformed the Papezsky States culminating in the granting of full responsible government in 3873. He approved of a new Constitution granting Deltaria independence shortly before his death in February 3875 from a heart attack.
