Petrus I (Pierce Anderson; born 29 January 2003), self-styled as Petrus Majesté, is the King of Winterspell. He created Winterspell in 2016 alongside Grand Duke Hunter.

Personal life

Early life and education

Petrus was born on 29 January 2003 in Longmont, Colorado as the first child of parents John and Holly. He spent much of his childhood in the company of his family often going on day trips with his grandparents.

Petrus attended Skyline High School graduating in 2021. At Skyline, Petrus played Ultimate where he was known as the 'Khaki King'.

Music

Petrus is noted for his eclectic taste in music listening to a wide range of artists from Mozart to Ensiferum covering nearly three centuries of music. He was a member of his school choirs for seven years until his graduation in 2021. He also played the violin for three years in his middle school orchestra eventually giving it up to double down on singing.

Micronational career

Creation of Winterspell

In the spring of 2016, Petrus alongside Hunter founded the Winterspell Club in their Minecraft city of Linsonkeep. The club existed only in Minecraft until a Winterspell Discord server was created on 13 April 2017 named 'Winterspell Club Est. 2016'. Winterspell was intended to be a small server for Petrus' closest friends but quickly outgrew this purpose. By the end of 2017, the Winterspell monarchy was established crowning Petrus the first Winterspell monarch.

Reign

Following Lord Aidan's suggestion to diversify the roles in Winterspell's Discord server, the title of monarch was created. Petrus was nominated to be Winterspell's first monarch by Jackson Whitted. Unopposed in his nomination, Petrus became king the same day starting his reign. Initially, the role of the monarch was to run and moderate the Winterspell Discord. Following the passage of the 'New Winterspell Constitution' in late 2018 and establishment of the Winterspell Parliament in early 2019, this role grew into a more governmental position. As monarch, Petrus has written the majority of Winterspell's legislation partaking in both the 2018 and 2021 constitutional conventions. He has also overseen the growth of Winterspell's population into what it is today.

Constitution

Petrus was in attendance at the first Winterspell constitutional convention in 2018 where the first draft of the current constitution was produced.[1] This convention marked one of the most significant turning points of Petrus' reign. The new constitution defined what his role in Winterspell was, though it was written using vague language allowing for a loose interpretation of what the monarch is meant to do.

11 February 2020

On the 11 February 2020, Princes Jackson and Quinn left the kingdom causing a general panic within the Winterspell government. Petrus disbanded parliament for the first time as the two departed princes formed two thirds of the upper house. In the period without parliament, Petrus made reforms removing the upper house entirely making parliament unicameral. He reinstated parliament just over a month afterwards.

June Concordat

On 28 May 2020, parliament attempted to exile a member of the Discord server. This move was vetoed by Petrus though the veto was overturned. This instigated a new set of reforms knows as the 'June Concordat'.[2] This document changed how parliament, titles, the judiciary, and the entire social system of Winterspell worked. This reform saw much support from members of the server and has continued to affect how the government functions today.

Prime Minister

On 6 October 2020, the Winterspell Discord server reached 100 members for the first time. This milestone prompted the proposal to create a Prime Minister position to administer the Winterspell Parliament.[3] This function was previously held by Petrus who relinquished it to the new parliamentary role.
