King Julius Acorn is a character mentioned in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He was the fourth king of the Kingdom of Acorn and a member of the House of Acorn.
Life and achievements
Succeeding his father Raphael Acorn, Julius followed the course of his grandfather Theodore Acorn and added considerably to the Kingdom of Acorn's territory, discovering the Source of All in the process. Julius was greatly affected by the discovery, instituting the traditional bonding ceremony of his line with the Source of All and introducing worship of the Source into his people's culture.
Julius' bonding ceremony with the Source of All would be followed by his family for generations until the Source's destruction. However, public worship of the Source declined with time, undoubtedly following Julius' death and his son Romulus Acorn's rise to the throne.
- Julius Acorn shares his name with Julius Caesar, the Roman statesman, a connection made more evident by the fact that his son is named Romulus, after one of the mythical founders of Rome.
