Archduke Anton of Karnia, also know as Anton Wenzel was the founder and first Kaiser of Karnia, was its first Archduke and is the current President of the Imperial Council of Karnia-Ruthenia. He is also one of the signatoires of the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016.
He founded Karnia on 2 February 2016 at Prague, through a political act signed by him, who was elected as the first Kaiser; Calvin Gustav, the first and acting Minister-President and Louis Taünn, the President of the Reichsrat, the Imperial Council. Karnia was founded to preserve and celebrate the tradition of the Czech monarchy under the Habsburgs. After some weeks, the project didn't achieved the expectd result. Without a Constitution or a well estabilished system of government, the Karnian government understood they need help to estabilish themselves. Then, Kaiser Anton and the President of the Reichsratt, Louis Taünn found their help in the Ruthenian Government.
With many problems to establish a functioning government, and especially achieve recognition of other micronations, they realized a micronational project was much more difficult to drive than they would have imagined and accepted enthusiastically the help from Ruthenian government. With the break between the Kaiser and the Minister-President caused precisely by disagreements about the conduction of government, Karnia requested Ruthenian intervention. The cost of this intervention to save the newly created project was to deliver the Imperial Crown to the King of the Ruthenians. In return, the project would be expanded and be at par with the Kingdom of Ruthenia. The result of this negotiation was the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016. Under the terms of the Compromise, Karnia and Ruthenia became the Karno-Ruthenian Empire, he abdicated of the throne in favor of Oscar I and became an Archduke, playing much influence over the development of a national culture inspired by the Habsburgs as much as political influence as the second President of the Imperial Council.
