Alexander I of Atiera (born Liam Alexander, 5 April 2005) is a Hamilton-born Canadian micronationalist. Most notable for the foundation of the Kingdom of Atiera and the Empire of Atiera, Alexander continues to rule Atiera as emperor to this day. Other contributions as a micronationalist (under his common name of Liam Alexander) include his tenure as Margrave of Australis and the inaugural First Minister of Pacem.

He is most notably known for being the first King of Atiera up until the nation's dissolution in August 2021. Alongside Atiera, Alexander is also known in other notable micronations such as Oskonia, as former Prime Minister and in Pacem, during his tenure as the nation's inaugural First Minister between 27 July 2020 until his resignation on 1 February 2021.

Micronational career

Early career

Flag of Atiera

In early 2019, Alexander and his friends founded a simulationist nation known as the Democratic Republic of Cobra where he served as the Secretary of state until its dissolution later in the year. He and his friends proclaimed Cameron Cezar, former micronationalist and co-founder of Cobra, as the nation's King.

After the dissolution of the Democratic Republic of Cobra, Alexander went on to found two other unsuccessful nation-projects before founding Atiera. These nations were known respectively as the Democratic Republic of Patheum and the Kingdom of Limconia, both of which had little to no government structure and any real-life elements, making them both simulationist states.

Later in 2019, Alexander first discovered "true" micronationalism, a form of micronationalism which he describes as "serious and legitimate", when he heard about Arkovia. During the time he held citizenship in Arkovia, he was a member of the Genisis council and former Prime Executive Minister of the Foreign Intelligence service Enhanced Government Institution. Alexander has also been involved in a scandal of Arkovian documents being leaked from the EGI he was in charge of. He was also a minister within Promatia, after the name change of Arkovia, until informally renouncing his citizenship later in the year.

Alexander was also active within the Empire of Pacem, which he discovered while browsing Reddit on holiday with his family. He later was recruited as a journalist for the Quo Times. Later, he left and rejoined sometime in early 2020 where he served as a senator and the nation's First Minister. To this day, Alexander proudly states that the Empire of Pacem played a major role in the development of his micronational career.[1] [2]

Kingdom of Atiera

On 30 May 2020, Munroe founded his latest and most successful nation, the Kingdom of Atiera, where he was the first monarch, reigning as Emperor of Atiera since 30 May 2020 and King of Atiera since 10 August 2020 until the nation's dissolution. He served as the Head of State and subsequently, Commander-in-Chief of the Atieran Defense Force. He was also the King of Galte, the only colony of Atiera.[3]

Alexander suddenly left every micronational Discord server he had been in and removed all micronational friends (except Michael, Prince of Galte) from his Discord friends list on 21 June 2021. This came as a sudden shock to many, including Atieran government officials. Daniel Hamilton later released a statement on Alexander's behalf. In the statement, he said that "a lot has happened to me mentally and emotionally," and "I am not proud and instead rather ashamed that time and time again I prove myself to be unfit for service as one of the leaders of this nation." Because of this and more, he wrote in his statement that he would be taking an extended break from the micronational community as a whole. He also said that if he were to abdicate the throne of Atiera, Michael, Prince of Galte would ascend to the Atieran throne.[4]

Following up on that statement, he was immediately relieved from his duties as Margrave of Australis by Daniel Hamilton. He was also relieved of any other positions he held up to that point, excluding King of Atiera and Galte.

On 25 June 2021, he returned to the Atiera Discord server and other servers, slowly marking his return to the community. On 6 July, he announced that he would be ending his short hiatus on 16 July 2021, whilst still doing minor tasks in the various micronations he participates in.

Later in the summer, Atiera was dissolved on 25 August 2021, therefore disbanding the Monarchy of Atiera. A union with the Kingdom of Baustralia was discussed, and a treaty was drafted, but remained unsigned.

Second Empire of Atiera
