Christoph grew up the village Grevie, where he attended the school Backaskolan. At the age of 16 he studied Social Science with focus on languages at the local High School. Today Christoph speaks Swedish, English, Spanish, some French and reads and writes Latin. In 2012 after the Mimasian December Coup Christoph began his higher education at Malmö University where he got an degree in Educational Science with a major in History and Religions. In 2013 he moved to Malmö and his current Headquarters in Västra Hamnen.

Early Micronational Life

It was during his father's reign that Christoph first joined the micronational world. The First Monarchy in the Archduchy of Mimas was a shorter period between 2010 and 2012 ending with the Mimasian December Revolution. Three years passed and the micronation was laid on ice. On Walpurgis Night 2015 Christoph and a set of friends reinstated the Archduchy of Mimas. This time Christoph became Head of State and announced the first general election in three years.

Reign

As Archduke, Christoph II founded many royal institutions who all take part in the running of the nation. The Archduchy achieved many new allies and friends and to further strengthen the bonds between regions geographically far away from Northern Europe, Christoph and several governmental representatives spent two months in Russia, Mongolia and China in 2015. During the last months of 2015 the government Christoph founded the Royal University where students attend typical Mimasian classes. In 2020, Christoph got a renewed interest in digital design and achieved further knowledge in the use of digital tools to design iconography for Mimas. This led to several new royal orders and flags during 2020.
