Praetor

The Romulan Praetor in an alternate 2266

The Praetor of the Romulan Star Empire in 2266 sponsored a bold and dangerous mission of the military to attack the United Federation of Planets. The Praetor ordered their flagship, a Romulan Bird-of-Prey under the command of a veteran officer, to cross the Neutral Zone and attack a series of Federation outposts.

Some members of the crew of the Bird-of-Prey had connections with the Praetor; one in particular was Decius, who sent the Praetor a message regarding the "glorious mission" after Earth Outpost Stations 2, 3, 4, and 8 had been destroyed. In actuality, by sending this message and breaking radio silence, Decius had inadvertently given away the Bird-of-Prey's position to the USS Enterprise and the Praetor's "finest flagship" was eventually hunted down and destroyed. (TOS: "Balance of Terror")

In an alternate timeline created by Christopher Pike avoiding his debilitating accident in 2266, the Neutral Zone Incursion of 2266 instead led to an encounter between Pike's USS Enterprise, James T. Kirk's USS Farragut, and a Romulan fleet, having arrived subsequent to Decius' message, led by the Praetor herself, ultimately leading to the outbreak of a war that would still be going on after two decades and have killed millions. (SNW: "A Quality of Mercy")

The Praetor is referred to as "him" in "Balance of Terror", but depicted as female in "A Quality of Mercy". Though they are presumed to be the same person, it is possible someone else held the position in the alternate 2266.
The Praetor was played by Carolyn Scott in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
According to the novel Summon the Thunder, this Praetor was former-senator Vrax, while in Star Trek: Federation - The First 150 Years, this Praetor was named Varus III.

Tarses' paternal grandfather

The paternal grandfather of Simon Tarses was a closely held family secret. When enlisting, Tarses lied, saying on his Starfleet personnel application that his grandfather was half-Vulcan.

In 2367, Sabin Genestra revealed the truth during Tarses' cross-examination. (TNG: "The Drumhead")

This Romulan was only mentioned in dialogue.
Simon refers to him in the past tense, suggesting he has died.
