He inherited the activation factor from his father to activate the Aldnoah. The Orbital Knights swore fealty to him, and in turn he then bestowed them with Aldnoah and the activation factor. (AZ: "Steel Step Suite")
After the discovery of the Hyper Gate by Apollo 17 on the Moon, the colonization of Mars began with the discovery of Aldnoah. Rayregalia declared Mars's independence from the Earth. This led to the creation of the Vers Empire, which claimed that the Emperor inherited the authority of Aldnoah. In due part from this the people of Vers are oppressed under a feudal system centered around Aldnoah. (AZ: "Princess of VERS")
The people of VERS resent the Terrans who seem to have everything. Earth possesses unique food, culture, abundant amounts of water and air, along with living creatures native to the planet. The VERS may have advanced technology thanks to Aldnoah, but what they lack is culture that can't be made up by it. The superficial reason behind the First Earth-Mars War was for obtaining culture and plentiful resources. The disgruntled feelings of the people of VERS against him and the Royal Family started during the reign of Rayregalia. However, he stepped down due to illness allowing for Gilzeria to become the Second Emperor. Gilzeria used the people's jealousy of Earth to maintain order on VERS. Gilzeria whipped the Orbital Knights into a frenzy and sent them against Earth. This alone caused the conflict spurring Heavens Fall. Thus giving rise to Operation Earthfall 15 years later. When Gilzeria died during Heavens Fall on the Moon, Rayregalia stepped in as the First Emperor of the Vers Empire in place of him. (AZ: "Before the War")
