Lord Charles Aelred Raphael Ross, Duke of Occidentia (formally known as Charles I of Phokland) of the House of Ross is an Arizona born Austenasian-Draculian Micronationalist, Podcast Host and, Historian who has held numerous positions within the micronational community including, State President of the Phoklandian Free State, Governing Commissioner of Bregusland Colony, Official Historian of the Empire of Austenasia and, Austenasian Consul in Arizona. Most recently, he took office as Lieutenant Governor of North Dracul on 22 April 2020.
Charles was born in Arizona on 30 January. The son of a former county politician, he demonstrated a fondness for history and politics from an early age. This affinity stuck with him through most of his childhood, culminating in his creation of the Kingdom of Rosston in early 2007.
Ross began his micronational carrier in 2007 when he created/ran the Kingdom of Rosston in the playground of his primary school until it's dissolution in 2013. Following the restoration of Rosston (now renamed Phokland) in 2017, he was selected as Prime Minister of the new country. From there he became the monarch of the Principality of Phokland, a position that later evolved into Viceroy for the Viceroyalty of Phokland then to Tsar of the Tsardom of Phokland and finally State President of the Phoklandian Free State.
While a part of Phokland, Charles began associating with other micronations, notably the Empire of Austenasia where he became the nation's Official Historian, Council to Arizona and, Commissioner of the Austenasian Crown Dependency of Bregusland. Over time however, he began drifting away from Austenasia and began to focus more on his primary project.
He continued with Phokland until early 2020 when a split in the government caused the nation to dissolve, leaving Charles stateless. Shortly after Phokland's dissolution, he was approached by Vice President of the Commonwealth of Dracul, Stephen Luke with the proposition of him becoming the new Lieutenant Governor of North Dracul. Ross accepted the offer and shortly thereafter assumed office on 22 April 2020.
Outside of micronationalism, Charles Ross spends a majority of his free time either researching history or writing. In addition, he is a huge fan of film and enjoys watching movies either at home or at the cinema. Charles also spends a large chunk of his time working on a podcast he runs with fellow micronationalists Nicholas Randouler and Thomas Bainbridge, known as MicroRamble.
