Then-Senator Tal'Aura in 2379.

Tal'Aura was a Romulan female who served on the Imperial Romulan Senate in the 2370s. In 2379, Tal'Aura supported Shinzon of Remus' plans to free seize control of the Romulan government on promises that his hawkish stance towards the United Federation of Planets would produce a more strident stance on the astropolitical scene. After Praetor Hiren rejected Shinzon's demands, Tal'Aura planted a thalaron radiation projector in the Hall of State and left the building just before the entire Senate was killed. (TNG movie: Star Trek Nemesis).Following the death of Shinzon a few days later, Tal'Aura was proclaimed Praetor as she was the only member of the Senate left alive. This move was not supported by a large proportion of the military, who planned a coup d'etat against Tal'Aura. (TTN novel: Taking Wing). By late 2380, Tal'Aura had consolidated control of most of the Empire, gaining the support of the Tal Shiar, the new Senate, the war hawk faction, and most of the Imperial Fleet; she remained in constant conflict with the faction of the Imperial Fleet loyal to Commander Donatra, however, and by December of that year, Donatra's forces captured a number of Romulan farming planets, including Archernar Prime, and declared the existence of the Imperial Romulan State, with Donatra as its Empress. Tal'ura requested that neither the Federation nor the Klingon Empire recognize Donatra's government and provide military aide in its recapture by the Star Empire; the Federation President Nanietta Bacco flatly refused to take sides, while Klingon Chancellor Martok, Son of Urthog,immediately declared that the Klingon Empire would recognize the Imperial Romulan State. (Articles of the Federation.)In 2385 Praetor Tal'Aura dies,the noble senator Chulan of the Line of Tellus was selected as the new Praetor of the Romulan Star Empire.(ST website: The Path to 2409)
