HH, Duke Charles of Victoria is a former Letzembourgish politician and military leader. He is the grandfather of Grand Duke Christian of Letzembourg, and the leader the Duchy of Victoria.

Career

Politics

Duke Charles had never been involved in micronationalism, until late 2015, when he was approached by Grand Duke Christian, and was asked to help establish the Grand Duchy of Letzembourg. Without knowing much about micronationalism, he accepted, although, he remained quite inactive until Letzembourg was officially established. After Letzembourg was officially established, he was asked by Grand Duke Christian to serve as Letzembourg's first Chancellor. He was appointed that same day by Grand Duke Christian, and was also given authority of the Duchy of Victoria, the capital of Letzembourg, and has since been known as Charles, Duke of Victoria.

In February of 2016, Duke Charles resigned all of his positions within the Letzembourgish government, due to health issues. He pledged to remain a loyal citizen, even after his resignation.

Heritage

Ethnically, Charles is English, and German, though his English ancestries are predominant. He is a dual-citizen of the United States and the United Kingdom (England), having an English mother, and an American father. He was born in the United States, but made very frequent trips to the United Kingdom as a child. He is a descendant of the German Royal Family (supposedly), and his lineage may trace back to Sir Isaac Newton's brother, Benjamin Smith.
