Agis XIV is a character in Isaac Asimov's science-fiction novel Forward the Foundation.


Agis XIV was the emperor of the Galactic Empire after Cleon I. He was one of the emperors that ruled in the life of Hari Seldon. Agis was described as a weak emperor with no actual power; he was controlled by the parliament. He met Hari Seldon once and refused to help in the psychohistory project. He was crowned because he was a distant relative to Cleon I. It's been said that he was crowned against his will and agreed because he was the only one that could inherit the crown from Cleon.
