Perfect Passive Participles
The fourth principal part of the verb is frequently met as an adj with 1st and 2nd declension endings. When so used it is called a perfect passive participle and may be translated in a variety of ways.

"began to rule after/when/because he had been ordered" or "who had been ordered"
