Thomas Montview was a Meyers citizen and politician.
In 1922 PD, he served as Prime Minister of King Lawrence IX, but had little actual power due to the Solarian League Office of Frontier Security being firmly in control of the Meyers System. However, in July of that year the Star Empire of Manticore started its invasion of the Madras Sector by driving the Solarians out of Meyers.
Admiral Gold Peak, the senior Manticoran officer present, met with Montview and informed him that the Star Empire would be interested in restoring the King to power and turning Meyers into an independent ally. After discussing the situation, the king agreed and ordered Montview to form the first sovereign Meyers government in generations. (HH14)
