Okay, I'll bite. Which of the previous autarchs was Severian, and when?

If you're referring to the "first Severian" scenario outlined by Sev on
p.270 of CITADEL, that doesn't count. That Severian was replaced at some
point by our Sev, and history was rewritten, so to speak. Sev _did not_
contain the memory of that "first Severian" becoming autarch and receiving
the memories of Appian and the rest.
