The Marcus Aurelius was a Compact Navy warship built by Etrusca. Twice the size of the Queen Maria Sophia, she could easily dispatch the so-called Goliath class (Humanic nomenclature) of Realm warship. The Aurelius traveled to Mud in 433 IE, carry a royal party to inform Edward Windsor he was now king of Bonaparte. The royal party had originally intended to travel back to Bonaparte aboard the Aurelius, then evacuate to it when the Queen Maria Sophia came under attack. The ship, however, exploded before they could reach it, killing all one thousand crew members.
