He also is monarch of the Kingdom of Anderonia, founded in December 2020 as a secondary nation in personal union with Monmark, serving as "King of the Anderonians".

Alexander I Constantine is also a prominent Wynnish politician, previously serving in the House of Lords and later campaigning in the 2021 general election as head of the "Young Wynnland" party, forming a coalition with the "Social Nationalist Party", the Independent Count of Willsminister, and being projected to form a government and become Prime Minister as of 8 January 2021.

Micronational career

The following is the micronational career of Alexander I Constantine, however as most of it is undocumented, 2017-early 2020 are relatively short.

Monmark

Alexander I Constantine's micronational career began on 26 December 2017 when he founded the Kingdom of Monmark with his close friend James Thomason, becoming King and appointing James as Prime Minister. Monmark was at the time a largely unprofessional nation with poorly defined land claims, no attempt at a constitution, and largely underdeveloped government, meaning that until late 2019 and early 2020, the nation slowly decayed and went into inactivity. On an undocumented date as early as November 2019 and as late as February 2020, Alexander I Constantine declared himself an emperor, and used the position to begin reforming Monmark and hauling it out of inactivity throughout early 2020, with the notable accomplishments being the writing of the first constitution, first diplomatic outreach, and most importantly, building up a new loyal base of citizens. On 20 June 2020 he became "King of Monmark" once again as the Bluff Province, which was the principal province of the nation at the time, was reformed into the Kingdom of Monmark as the first constituent country of the nation, followed by others on the same day. On 14 August, the first Parliament of Monmark was appointed as a provisional government, and admitted the Kingdom of Paland to the nation the same day with approval of Alexander I Constantine. The next day, the monarch changed his title from "Grand Emperor" to Emperor, to be more modest in his titles, which was the start of a period of rebranding from the old "Grand Imperium" spearheaded by Alexander I Constantine. On 1 November 2020, Alexander I Constantine suspended parliament with its approval, and became absolutist, as he and his advisors recognized that it was an ineffective institution that was starting to lead towards inactivity. In late November and early December, Alexander I Constantine began writing a series of acts and decrees that started to bring up to date the formerly neglected laws of Monmark.
