Aaron I (born Aaron Alexander; 5 August 1997-) is the first and current King of Eniarku and its dominions. Prior to his accession in 2015, Aaron served as head of state of all previous incarnations of the state, leading Eniarku through various periods of development both domestically and within the MicroWiki Community.
Aaron formally established Eniarku as a republic in May 2009, becoming the small nation's first and only president. Soon after, he would go on to become the Supreme Executive Commissioner of the Democratic People's Republic of Eniarku, as well as concurrently serve as the Prime Minister of the North American Confederation from late 2010 until April 2011. Aaron then established the short-lived Empire of Eniarku, ascending that nation's throne as emperor; he later served as Federal President of the Eniarkian Confederation, the longest-lasting incarnation of Eniarku to date, before establishing the current monarchy on 5 August 2015.
As the founder of the Kingdom of Eniarku, as well as the House of Abbott, the dynastic line of Eniarkian succession legally stems from him (as dictated in the Abbott Family Pact). Aaron is the eldest of three brothers and of his immediate cousins, and therefore they follow him in the order of succession. Older members of the nobility (i.e. parents of first cousins to the king, who would be the king's aunts and uncles, or his parents and grandparents) are often placed lower in the line of succession, or sometimes excluded entirely. Aaron has served in the Eniarkian Armed Forces since their inception in 2009 with the creation of the republic, though since ascending to the throne, his role in combat has been almost completely done away with. He does, however, participate in many public and ceremonial engagements with the Armed Forces, and serves as the Commander-in-Chief.
Aaron's reign has seen the revival of Eniarkian culture and political life, as well as the transition from de facto dictatorial politics to much more constitution ones bound by the rule of law. The establishment of the kingdom and monarchy brought with it a new era of Eniarkian involvement in the Community, as well as the hope of the reignition of micronationalism in the North American sector.
Aaron I was born at Sinai Hospital near the former seat of government, Vicis, on 5 August 1997. His father was formerly a member of the nobility until he was stripped of all titles, though he was permitted to remain an official member of the House of Abbott by the king, and is the son of the current Earl of Melchin and deceased Duchess of Eryia, the king's paternal grandparents. His mother, the current Queen Mother, is the middle child of the Duke and Duchess of Palmaire, the king's maternal grandparents.
He has been described as very self-driven and enthusiastic, and maintains a passion for music, playing piano since age seven and other wind instruments since age ten.
Aaron established the Republic of Eniarku on 29 May 2009, installing himself as president. From then on, he would serve as the head of state for all of the incarnations of Eniarku, including Supreme Executive Commissioner of the DPRE, Emperor of the Empire of Eniarku, and Federal President of the Eniarkian Confederation. He would also serve as the Prime Minister of the North American Confederation North American Confederation during the state's early stages from late 2010 to mid-2011.
In its early life, Aaron was instrumental in the establishment of Eniarku as a reputable state within the MicroWiki sphere. Though initially created as a social experiment, the nation would go on to become an influential force in the North American sector, forging everlasting ties with the Empire of New Europe and its monarch, Wilhelm I. He would also serve as the driving force behind furthering Eniarku's diplomatic relations, namely to the Empire of Austenasia and the Republic of Molossia.
Aaron, as the head of Eniarku throughout its life, has also acted as a guiding and stabilizing force for the nation in times of crisis or inactivity. Although he has taken control of the state as a de facto dictator from time to time, the Eniarkian people still seem to retain a very high level of respect for the statesman.
