HRH Esther Eaton is a Quixotican politician as well as a member of that nation's former ruling house. She served as Quixotica's last Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Relations. On the Kingdom's Advisory Council she held the positions of Representative of Redemption Hill, Mayor of Avonia, and Satrap of New Albion. Esther is the founder and current Chair of the Egalitarian Party, one of the few political factions in Quixotica.

Political career

Esther Eaton became a member of the Quixotican Government during the Eighth Meeting of the Advisory Council on June 16, 2018 when she succeeded King Miles in his capacities as Representative of Redemption Hill and Marquis of the Quixotican Far West on the Advisory Council. Miles gave up his peerages in the interests placing a greater divide between the Advisory Council and his work as the reigning Monarch. During this same meeting Esther also succeeded Miles as Quixotica's second ever Minister of Foreign Relations.

Upon her appointment as a Councillor, Esther decided to found her own political party. She named her new political faction the Egalitarian Party in honor of her personal devotion to civil rights and progressivism. Although the Egalitarian Party shares a lot in common with the Amethyst Party founded by Prime Minister Stephanie Eaton, it quickly became that faction's sole source of competition.

The same day she became a member of the Advisory Council, Esther announced her intention to run for the office of Prime Minister in the Advisory Council Leadership Election of August, 2018.

Esther was appointed as the first ever Mayor of Avonia by King Miles upon her visiting the independent city on July 3, 2018. Her first act as Mayor was to establish which animals were to be the official symbols of the constituency. Her appointment as Mayor made her the first person in Quixotican history to hold three seats on the Advisory Council. The Irving Declaration, written by King Miles, unified the independent city of Irving with the Quixotican Far West to create a new constituency named New Albion. Esther, Marquise of the Quixotican Far West at the time, was appointed in the same royal declaration as the first ever Satrap of this newly amalgamated province.

Salvatore Miller, a close friend of both Esther and the reigning Monarch, was appointed Deputy Prime Minister of Quixotica on July 25, 2018. Sal chose to be nonpartisan following his appointment to the Advisory Council. He did agree to run alongside Esther in the August, 2018 Advisory Council Leadership Election, but showed no interest in joining the Egalitarian Party, weary of its growing influence.

Premiership

Esther won the August, 2018 Advisory Council Leadership Election defeating incumbent Stephanie Eaton in a landslide. The same day she entered office Miles I abdicated as King of Quixotica. When pressed to explain why he was retiring Miles simply stated that he was "passing on the torch" in order to prevent "government stagnation". Stephanie, the loser of the election, was Miles' heir apparent and thus ascended to the position of Quixotican Monarch upon his abdication. Just several minutes after the new Queen had inaugurated her as Premier, Esther's first task as Prime Minister was to crown Stephanie Eaton in her official coronation ceremony. In accordance with the Quixotican constitution, Stephanie was forced to become politically independent upon her ascension to the throne, thus resulting in the abolition of her Amethyst Party. The Egalitarians, led by Esther, became the majority party of the new 6th incarnation of the Advisory Council.

Esther was one of the Quixotican politicians responsible for the 2018 Act of Quixotican Renewal which proposed the dissolution of the Monarchy and the establishment of a Republic. She informally stepped down as Prime Minister on September 28 following the creation of a republican constitution. Her political party, the Egalitarians, continued to exist under the new Republic of Quixotica.

When Esther became a member of the Advisory Council she decided it best to found her own political party. This resulted in the creation of the Egalitarian Party on June 16, 2018. The Egalitarian Party, despite professing many of the same beliefs as the Amethysts, quickly became their de facto opposition in the Advisory Council. On the same day as her party's founding, Esther announced she would be the party's first ever candidate for the office of Prime Minister of Quixotica.

Esther finished writing the Egalitarian Party Platform, the first document of its kind in Quixotican history, on July 2, 2018. The party's first platform encouraged civil rights, public works projects, the creation of a Ministry of Education, and the establishment of a constitutional monarchy.

Esther's friend Deputy Prime Minister Salvatore Miller agreed to run alongside her in the August, 2018 Advisory Council Leadership Election, but insisted that he remain independent of the Egalitarian Party. Salvatore was Esther's running mate in a Egalitarian-Independent coalition that allowed for him to continue to be nonpartisan.

Esther won the August, 2018 Advisory Council Leadership election and thus the Egalitarians became the new majority party of the Council. Upon Miles' abdication Stephanie Eaton was prompted to ascend to the throne. Her need to remain independent from political factions as Monarch resulted in the abolition of her political party, the Amethysts, thus leaving the Egalitarians with more power than ever before.
