Connor I (born Connor Stumperth on 19 December 1998) is the King of Atovia. Formerly, he was the King of the Democratic Kingdom of Mallanor. He is a center-left micronationalist, founding the New Democratic Party of Atovia. His micronational career began in 2014 with the foundation of Mallanor and his joining of the forum. One year after the collapse of the Mallanorian government and the start of his inactivity, Connor founded the Kingdom of Atovia, which is now his primary focus. Connor also holds citizenship in the Federated States of Transterra and the Abeldane Empire.

Reigns

Mallanor

Connor I founded the Democratic Kingdom of Mallanor on 28 April 2014, becoming it's first and only King. While he was de jure a constitutional monarch, the lack of other government members left him as de facto absolute monarch. Much of the power of government was later shared with the prime minister, Michael Hinnebusch II, during his two years in that position. The balance of government began to fall apart after the election of Ben Weitzel as prime minister in April 2016. Shortly after this election, the government became permanently inactive and Connor I declared the nation defunct in May 2016.

Atovia

Following the collapse of the Mallanorian government, Connor I began to work on a new micronation. On 5 May 2017, this work manifested as the Kingdom of Atovia. From May to December of that year, the kingdom maintained a low level of activity while Connor I developed the government and culture of the new nation. In December 2017, Connor I appointed a Minister of Energy and also appointed himself to the positions of acting Minister of National Defense, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of Justice, and Minister of Public Safety, determining that these ministries were critical to the future of the nation. Shortly afterwards, in January 2018, he appointed himself Minister of Internal Affairs.
