Fictional Character Biography

According to Team Fantomen

He was born in 1912 and became the Phantom in 1935, the year he became 23, thereby being the oldest one so far to swear the Oath of the Phantom.

Through some somewhat contradictionary events he came to marry Maude Thorne McPatrick and in 1939, their son, the 21st Phantom was born.

When he was to marry, he had to free his Maude from a prison by working as an ox and thereby making a chain weaker and weaker until he could tear it appart.

He died in 1959 when Rama Singh, backstabbed him to death after he had destroyed the Singh pirate fleet.

According to Lee Falk

The 20th Phantom is about to be stabbed by Rama Singh.

The 20th Phantom was either married to the beautiful Lady Maude, whom he had to save out of the dungeons of a prince ("The Chain" and "Captain Amazon - Pirate Queen"). In "The Tree House" he is said to have married an unnamed daughter of Dr. Thorne, whom he met while saving them from the Rope People. It's very possible, albeit never stated, that Maude and Miss Thorne were the very same.

He met and befriended Dr Axel, who saved his life and later delivered the future 21st Phantom. He was also the one to help Axel start up his Jungle Hospital, as said in "Dr Axel and the Witchmen" and several later stories.

In "The Singh Brotherhood" the current Phantom tells Diana that his father died after a battle with the Singh Pirates, a story that is repeated in "The Childhood of the Phantom (1944 story)". In "The Childhood of the Phantom (1959 story)" he is shown to have died after a gunfight with river pirates and in "The Belt" dies after being stabbed in the back by Rama, a Singh Pirate.

According to Moonstone

The 20th Phantom fought the Singh Brotherhood in 1936.

According to Bastei

According to the Bastei stories, the current Phantom is the 15th, meaning that there hasn't yet appeared a 20th Phantom. The current Phantom's father is therefore the 14th Phantom.
