History[edit | edit source]
His older brother Narmacil succeeded their father to the throne, but was indolent and had no children. Calmacil had a son, Minalcar, who was unlike them, a man of great vigour, was bestowed by Narmacil to be a Regent.
When Narmacil died without heirs in T.A. 1294, his brother Calmacil succeeded him, but was too old to rule so he continued to have his son Minalcar function as Regent until he was properly succeeded after his death.
