SignatureArthur's signature

Arthur (Alexander Asher Foxley Hayden St George, born 2002) is a micronationalist, statesman, courtier and herald. He is the third and present monarch of the United Kingdom of Creek and Lake, following a half month period of transition as Lord Protector in May 2023 due to the removal of Queen Christina I & II, which occurred during the independence of Creek and Lake from the Cycoldian Imperium.

He also currently serves as the Second Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of External Affairs in the State of Vishwamitra, being also the leader of the ruling National People's Congress party and a personal counsel of the Rashtradhyaksh.

Prior to the independence of Creek and Lake from the Imperium, he had served as Prime Minister between May 2021 till May 2023, along with several other cabinet posts under Queen Erica and Queen Christina I & II between 2019 and 2023. He also served as cabinet minister in Cycoldia between April 2021 and May 2023 and as Prime Minister from October 2022 till his resignation in May 2023 due to the independence of Creek and Lake from Cycoldia and the Cycoldian Imperium.

Political career

Creek and Lake

Arthur Lacey-Scott-FitzLacia was created Duke of Highwood, Earl of Derenwater and Baron Drednam through letters patent dated 25 January 2019 by Queen Erica, and was appointed Earl Marshall by letters patent the same day, thereby taking control of all ceremonial and heraldic matters within the nation.

He was subsequently appointed Lord Great Chamberlain by letters patent dated 7 February 2019, thereby acting as a liaison between the Government and the Royal Household. He continued to serve in a ceremonial capacity to the Government and the Royal Household till September 2020, whereby he became a government minister and advisor to the Crown.

He was appointed as Foreign Secretary and the Colonial Secretary in late September 2020, and greatly expanded and modernized the-then Royal Territories of Creek and Lake. Despite serving in HM Government as a member of the United Royalist Party, he remained apolitical. Upon the creation of the United Kingdom of Creek and Lake on 25 January 2021, he took a sojourn and remained out of politics until the (Second) Act of Union was passed by the Parliament of the United Kingdom of Creek on 15 November 2021, thereby becoming involved in the affairs of the state and realm once more in the new United Kingdom of Creek and Lake.

Between November 2021 and May 2022, he served in the cabinet of prime minister Avery Prasatik, holding the portfolio of Lord Chancellor of the Duchy of Creek and Lake, alongside other junior positions. He succeeded Prasatik as Prime Minister on 15 May 2021. He served as prime minister till 1 May 2023, when Queen Christina I & II was declared incapacitated by Parliament and he himself was appointed as Lord Protector, governing the realm till a new monarch could be found. On 14 May, Parliament declared him as the new monarch as King Arthur by the Accession to the Crown Act 2023.

Cycoldia

Upon the union of the Crown of Creek and Lake and that of Cycoldia by the Second Act of Union 2023 on 15 November 2021, he was appointed as the Cycoldian Colonial Governor, administering the affairs of the nation on behalf of the Cycoldian Imperium. He was later naturalized as a Cycoldian citizen on 3 March 2021. On 3 April 2021, he was appointed as President of the Cycoldian College of Arms for his knowledge in heraldry and related matters. On 3 April 2021, he entered government by being elected as a member of the General Assembly of Cycoldia. The next day on 4 April he was appointed as Colonial Minister. On 5 August of that same year, he was created Earl of Glenbrook. Later in September, he was appointed as Foreign Minister, serving concurrently with that of Colonial Minister.

On 21 September 2022, he became a founder member of the Imperial Privy Council of Cycoldia, later leading many of its deliberations. On 14 October 2022, he was appointed as Prime Minister of Cycoldia, following the 2022 Monarchist Party premiership election. For his services to the state, he was created Duke of Glenbrook on 6 November 2022. He served as Prime Minister of Cycoldia until his resignation in May 2023 from all governmental and official posts, alongside his citizenship and other awards and honors.

Vishwamitra

Arthur Lacey-Scott-FitzLacia was first introduced to the State of Vishwamitra in his capacity as a special envoy of Summi Imperatoria Christina I & II of Cycoldia to discuss matters on foreign relations between Cycoldia and her imperium and Vishwamitra. He soon opted to seek citizenship in Vishwamitra and was granted citizenship in February 2022. However, soon after receiving the citizenship, he was appointed as the Cycoldian Ambassador to Vishwamitra and his credentials were not accepted by the Vishwamitran government in addition to the refusal to recognize the states of the imperium. The refusal to accept his credentials became a reason for dispute with the Cycoldian government and soon the Summi Imperatoria issued an order on ceasing relations between Cycoldia and Vishwamitra.

Despite all this, he remained a citizen of Vishwamitra and was granted a special concession by the Cycoldian crown allowing him to keep his dual citizenship. In May 2022, he contested a by-election to the Lok Sabha as an independent candidate but decided to withdraw his nomination after being requested by Rashtradhyaksh Varuna Sriraya. He was then appointed to the prestigious Privy Council on 6 May 2022 and remained its member till his resignation on 9 June 2022. As a privy councilor, he became a close personal counsel to the Rashtradhyaksh and has since been considered one of the top personal advisers to the Rashtradhyaksh.

On 11 June 2022, Prime Minister Farhaz Hazarika carried out a brief reshuffle-cum-expansion of his council of ministers and inducted him as a minister of cabinet rank. He was appointed as the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Law and Justice and in-charge of the Prime Minister's Office. As the parliamentary affairs minister, he played a pivotal role in changing and developing the parliamentary practices and procedures including the implementation of the Parliamentary Standing Orders and also played an important role in bringing up the Law Code, 2021 in his capacity as law and justice minister. He also briefly served as the Minister of External Affairs during the period of leave and subsequent resignation of Liam Alexander.

He led the high-level committee on the restoration of political parties in the nation in August 2022 and was instrumental in the process of lifting the ban on partisan politics. Following the ban being lifted by an act of the parliament, he was chosen to lead the National People's Congress by the party working committee. Under his banner, the party contested the 2022 general election and secured a thumping majority. He contested the election from two seats and was elected unopposed from the prestigious Maligaon constituency. In order to challenge the third consecutive bid of Vishwamitran National Party leader Rory Leonard from the Kalapani constituency, he contested the election from the second seat and was able to win handsomely from the seat. He later resigned from the Maligaon seat.

After his election to the Lok Sabha, he was re-inducted to the union council of ministers of Prime Minister Farhaz Hazarika as the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Law and Justice with the additional charge of the Minister of National Defence. On 26 November 2022, he was appointed as the second Deputy Prime Minister of Vishwamitra to serve alongside Princess Sarala who has held office since 31 July 2022.

On 18 March 2023, he was appointed as Minister of External Affairs. During the 2023 general election, he led the National People's Congress to another majority in the Lok Sabha, contesting and later winning the Srirajya seat against Vishwamitran National Party's leader, Devin Purcell. As Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, he led the parliamentary reforms in the nation in July and August 2023, culminating in the passage of the third edition of the Constitution of Vishwamitra, which signaled the transition of the nation into a parliamentary monarchy.
