This may be the case. I will have to go review the sources, but IIRC years before Hard Times Dulinor was already officially calling his realm The Federation of Ilelish. By Hard Time the only factions claiming to be the Third Imperium were Norris, Lucan, and Margaret.
At least until Arrival Vengeance.
