    The emperor lived an easy life

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    The emperor lived an easy life surrounded by concubines, artists and a large number of sycophants, until the messenger from the border town arrived, telling him that hordes of mercenaries gathered on the border with the aim of removing him from power.

    or "had gathered."
    Also, put a comma after "life".
