Lalandra VIII, elected Imperial Sovereign by the Imperial Council in Year 7111 of the New Shi'ar Calendar. She continued the path the New Shi'ar Imperium walked down under her mother Lalandra VII. She was 111 years old when elected Sovereign.

However, warfare pitting the Imperial Guard versus the Sontaran Dominion and rogue elements like the United Pirate Clans and other criminal organizations, as well as certain factions of Orks, did somewhat plague the after years of her reign.

She resigned in Year 7345, and became a priestess and later a bishop of the orthodox, official, Chandilar-based branch of the Church of the True God.
