His Serene Highness Edward I OM, PAMH, OR, et al. , also known as Edward Jacobs is a micronational nobleman and political figure who currently serves as Stadtholder of the Republic of Ashukovo.

Throughout his career as a micronationalist, Edward has been involved in numerous projects, including Amager, Dradelia, Monovia, Holy Roman Empire, and Ashukovo, of which he was one the main conceptors. Edward is Prince of All Ashukovo by virtue of his status as Founding Father of the Nation. Since January 2018, Edward serves as Stadtholder of Ashukovo (known as President until early 2020). He previously served as President between 2013 and 2014, and in 2017 He is the only Founding Father still involved in the nation's politics.

Micronational career

Early years

Edward Jacobs established Akharnes on July 7, 2011. In December 2012 the Federal Republic of Akharnes became a subject of Confederation of Amager and remained such until the dissolution of the Confederation. In Amager, a historically left-leaning nation, Jacobs was the leader of the right-wing conservative opposition.

Involvement in Ashukov politics

On May 25, 2013, Jacobs along with his former Amagerian countryman Joseph Kennedy, established the Ashukov Federation. On the same day, Jacobs founded the Orthodox Party, one of the most influential parties in Ashukov history.

Jacobs withdrew his candidacy from the first Presidential elections, allowing Joseph Kennedy take over the office in exchange for a life tenure as Supreme Judge. However, on July 1, 2013, Jacobs stepped down as Supreme Judge and assumed the office ofPrime Minister of Ashukovo.

On September 15, 2013, Jacobs came into prominence after being elected as Secretary of the GUM Advancement Council.
On September 22, 2013, Jacobs won the second Presidential elections against Joseph Kennedy, and took office three days later. His term was marked by Ashukovo's physical expansion through the incorporation of two Autonomous States that were Mouzilo and Carpathia.

After his Presidential term, Jacobs served as Deputy Prime Minister in the Ford Cabinet and Defense Minister in the Kennedy Cabinet II, where he has passed a series of important military reforms.

On January 29, 2017, Jacobs unilaterally took the office of President of Ashukovo, aiming to revive the nation after two years of unsuccessful Tsarist rule. During his term he initiated Ashukovo's comeback to the Grand Unified Micronational, the Microwiki community, increased domestic activity and laid the ground for future reforms. On June 25, 2017, he was elected Vice-President for a 6-month term, following Jacob Huff's victory in the Presidential Election.

On January 12, 2018, Jacobs unilaterally took office as President again, following an extended period of inactivity in the Federation.

On April 5, 2020, he dissolved the Ashukov Federation and established the Republic of Ashukovo.

On April 20, 2020, the House of Jacobs was officially recognized as a royal house in Ashukovo, granting Edward the title of Prince of all Ashukovo and being referred to as "Edward I".

Since May 1, 2020 he serves as Stadtholder.

Other ventures

On July 15, 2013, Jacobs founded Cleveland, which joined Monovia in October of the same year before eventually breaking off in early 2017. Since May 25, 2017, Cleveland has been a constituent nation of the Holy Roman Empire with Edward as its regent.

Edward I is the CEO of Ashunomics Enterprise, a company providing financial and advisory services and owning the national newspaper Ašukovski Vesti. It is Ashukovo's largest company.
