TRM Alex I, is the current ruling Monarch of the Kingdom of Lytera and Prince of the Commonwealth of Essexia. They were previously a Grand Duke under the regency council, but after the civil war, they gained the throne. Alex's reign has seen the state transform from a joke between family to a sovereign nation.
Early Life and Clubhausia
Alex was born in London on the 3rd of October, 2002. In 2008, they helped co-found the Republic of Clubhausia. While the nation flourished, Alex felt it best to create his own nation to engage in realistic trade, and so the Kingdom of Lytera was born, ruled by them and their brother Matthew as Grand Dukes. It remained in a personal union with Clubhausia until it's civil war in late 2013. Due to this, Lytera broke away from Clubhausia and remained neutral in the conflict that shook the region. This neutrality, which involved trade deals with both sides of the civil war, was enforced until July 2014, where the StonePark Telegram was intercepted, calling for war on Lytera to stop trading to the other side. Lytera promptly joined the war, though as it was a demilitarised nation, Duke Alex enlisted in the Lorentian army to combat Fizona.
However, changing views over the course of the summer and closer contact with Fizona led Lorentia to switch sides and support Fizona. When the seize fire occurred a year later, Lytera backed Fizona's claims. In the end, a white peace was declared, and everyone relinquished their claims on the Clubhaus area. At the next meeting at the ruins of Clubhausia, Lorentia kickstarted the war again, with a Lyteran victory. This minor skirmish was not considered a Lyteran military involvement, even though only Lytera and Lorentia were involved. Fizona and Lorentia, and the other warlords who broke away from Clubhausia all collapsed in 2016 or beforehand, not long after the skirmish. Until 2017, Lytera was in a state of relative dormancy. This was, until, the fateful day of 19 August 2017.
Matthew proclaimed he was the sole ruler on his 10th birthday, shocking many. Alex decided to remain loyal to the crown, but after many reckless choices and being arrested by the King, they declared war on the King with the backing of the royal family, documented in The Lyteran War of the Crown. After the short war, they were crowned in the ruins of the Royal Gardens.
Diplomacy and Peace
Alex has led Lytera through a period of stability and peace, with no contesting for power. In 2018, they unveiled the Airforce and Navy, and the artificial Lake Koi. They has also been on many diplomatic trips to spread the word of his nation.
In 2020, they became a Lord in Essexia as the Minister of Health. After the 1st of July Civil War in Essexia, they were made a Prince. They also represented the macronation of Syria at the NHSMUN in 2020.
Alex is bisexual and non-binary, which they have publicly stated before.

Royal Portraits & Ideological Photos
Alex as Rooster in 2014. Note the leaders of Fizona and Lorentia on the left and right, respectively. This was during the war. Luckily, due to the leader of Fizona's small role in the play (dog catcher) compared to Lorentia (Mr. Warbucks) and Lytera, the fighting did not take place during production.
