Shiarkiek (d. 2374) was a Romulan male who served as the Emperor of the Romulan Star Empire.

Shiarkiek's age was never given directly, but he was considered an old man even in 2344. Given his vulcanoid physique, this would put him in roughly the same age range as Sarek of Vulcan, making his most likely birth date sometime in latter half of the 22nd century.

History[edit | edit source]

The Tal Shiar were named after Shiarkiek in 2344 in his "honor" and were formed by Praetor Narviat. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Heart)

In 2374, Shiarkiek was assassinated by Archpriest N'Gathan, shortly before the Romulan entry into the Dominion War. (ST - Tales of the Dominion War short story: "Blood Sacrifice")
