Gen. Sir Arturo “Arty” Lara KCOA LKOF GCKP GCL GCV CSK MOH NSM MAO OJP OMS PC Duke of Anglenburg, Count Granville, born 08 May 1998, is a micronational diplomat who is currently serving as a government official for the Empire of Austenasia and the State of Vishwamitra.

Empire of Austenasia

On 27 November 2016, Lara was appointed Consul of Austenasia to the U.S. State of North Carolina. He served in this capacity until the early part of 2018, serving over a year for His Imperial Majesty Emperor Jonathan I.

On 17 February 2020, Lara was again made the Consul of Austenasia to North Carolina.

Aarianian Union of North America

In 2017, Lara became a citizen of the Aarianian Union of North America. He later became active in Aarianian politics with his appointment as the Territorial Governor of Vescambia on 18 February 2018. Lara lent a helping hand in the creation of the Vescambian flag and the naming of Mandela Pond in Tagginsol. On 24 March 2018, Lara received word that the Vescambian Territory was officially admitted as a Province and took over as its Baron. Soon after, Lara resigned as the Austenasian Ambassador to North Carolina, USA.

Lara affiliated himself with the Independent Party of Aariania (IPA). Being an Independent, Lara quickly joined Grand Marquette Aaron Green in a lawsuit against the Grand Council in which they attempted to dissolve the party. Lara was instrumental in getting the Council to drop the attempt after his review of the Constitution and discovering a passage which showed the Council’s attempt as unconstitutional. This was a big win for his party. Lara has since switched his affiliation to the Egalitarian Party of Aariania (EPA).

Since April 2018, Lara has served on the Council of Seven. On 23 September 2018, Baron Lara declared his candidacy for President of the Aarianian Union. He received the endorsement of Grand Marquette Green shortly thereafter. On 8 November of that year, Hajara Sadiq won the election with 42.9% of the vote, with Baron Carson Hutchens coming in second with 35.7% and Lara coming in third with 21.4% of the vote.

On 25 August 2019, President Green announced his plan to bring to the Council of Seven a resolution to dissolve the Aarianian Union. The vote was to be held the next day after 6:00 pm (EST).

On 25 September 2019, the Aarianian Union of North officially dissolved.

Kingdom of Roanoke

On 01 April 2020, Lara created the Kingdom of Roanoke. Upon creation, he was made King and chose King Arthur I as his regnal name.

On 31 January 2021, Lara signed an Instrument of Abdication at 5:00 PM, EST. He abdicated the throne in favour of his friend and Prime Minister, Christoph of Begon. At 10:00 that evening, he gave his final speech to the nation.

The following day, 01 February, the Kingdom was renamed to Brunsnia. Sir Arturo was named Prime Minister by King Christoph. A referendum was sent to citizens regarding the establishment of a United Kingdom of Begon and Brunsnia, however, this was not popular. The future of Brunsnia is not known at this time.

On 04 March 2021, the Kingdom of Brunsnia was officially dissolved and the territory was annexed by the Kingdom of Begon.

Begon

Sir Arturo became a full citizen of Begon upon the annexation of Brunsnia. He represents Greater Brunsnia, the Brunsnic Mainland, and the Art Islands in the House of Royals.

On 06 May 2021, Lara was made a Privy Councilor.

Vishwamitra

Sir Arturo first became acquainted with the State of Vishwamitra in 2020 when he was reigning over Roanoke and the two nations established mutual recognition. After his abdication from the throne, he was appointed the Chief of General Staff of the Vishwamitran Armed Forces.

On 26 February 2021, he was appointed to the Privy Council by His Majesty the Rashtradhyaksh. Eight days later, His Majesty appointed Sir Arturo as a Special Representative to the third Planning Commission.

On 13 March 2021, he was officially made a citizen of Vishwamitra, gaining citizenship within Kamrupa. On 08 May 2021, on the occasion of his 23rd birthday, Lara was made the Count of Granville by the Rashtradhyaksh.

Sir Arturo was named honourary Aide-de-Camp to the Rashtradhyaksh on 29 May 2021. Eight days later, General Lara tendered his resignation as Chief of the Defense Staff, effective 17 June 2021.

Personal life

He is a collector, amassing large collections of coins, autographs, military memorabilia, stamps, bottles, local artifacts, and much more. He also spends much of his time conducting genealogical research.

Lara is an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church.

Sir Arturo is a life member of The Fuller Society and is a member of the Royal Society of Saint George, the Lions Club, and the Masonic Lodge.

Genealogy

Sir Arturo is of mixed ancestry. His father is a native of Mexico and his mother the United States. His mother’s ancestry consists of English, Irish, Greek, and Austrian. Not much is known about his father’s family, as his parents divorced soon after Sir Arturo was born.
