HIM Emperor Alexander IV, known also as Dionisiy Tezdzhan-Smahin, is the Emperor of Pavlov and Federal Prime Minister of Lostisland. He has held several other governmental positions in numerous other micronations such as Ashukovo, Austenasia and Gastón.
Reign in Pavlov
Alexander founded Pavlov in 2012 together with his university friend Tom Prins as an experiment of how an absolute monarchy would function in the 21st century. After learning about Antarctic micronationalism, they claimed a piece of Antarctica. In the winter of 2012, Prins lost interest and Alexander continued on the project. After being briefly annexed by Lostisland, and declaring independence 1 month later. Pavlov was dormant up to September 2014. The Imperial family asserted sovereignty over the antarctic claims of the former Grand Principality of Snezhanopol and the state was within minutes recognized by the Federal Republic of Lostisland and AMU. During the period between 2014 en 2016, Pavlov became of the more unique micronations, while being criticised by many for his Autocratic and (religiously) conservative policies, he was being praised by the Pavlovian citizens. With them in 2015 - while still Grand Prince - deciding to grant to him the titles of Imperator and Augustus, he reformed the Grand Principality into the Empire of Pavlov. During his reign, Pavlov co-hosted multiple events in the Russophone micronation community, a constitution was passed and national symbols were developed. In October 2016 he unified all territories under his reign (with the exception of Gaston) into the then Empire of Pavlov, with various states joining the Empire becoming Themes.
Alexander developed Pavlov up to a level that it could have been classified as a historical simulation of the medieval Rus principalities, Russia under Ioann Grozny, and the Roman Empire. as such, he reintroduced the Oprichnina and the Julian Calendar. He also officially supported the Flat Earth theory in his capacity as Emperor, and enforced many bans, such as on atheism, shaving, and communism.
After Pavlov becoming more focused on online micronationalism, many "new Pavlovians" got into a position of power, destabilizing Pavlov and getting it into secessionist conflicts. The most famous being instigated by Pavle Savovic, who wished to use Pavlov as a base to plot "pavlist revolutions" in other micronations. Upon understanding that this was unwanted, Savovic planned a unilateral uprising and seceded from the Empire. Between 2017 and 2018 Pavlov tried to revive itself numerous times, but to no positive result.
In 2019, Montescano was founded as a new try to micronationalism. Since the very foundation of Montescano, many of the old Pavlovians, still being in contact with Alexander, proposed the re-foundation of the Empire and the re-declaration of being the Fourth Rome. This process was started in January 2020, but was red-lighted in March of the same year. However, soon afterwards, talks between "new Pavlovians" and "old Pavlovians" were finalized, and the Empire was formally re-founded on 12 June 2020.
