Lady Vice Admiral Eryn Lewis, Duchess of Bernardston is an Austenasian politician and military officer living in the Town of Terentia, an enclave of northwestern Massachusetts. She is the Representative of Terentia and directs the North American Command of the Imperial Navy, as well as the leader of a small religious organisation in Austenasia known as the The Church of the Golden Road to Unlimited Devotion. Lewis is an avid concert goer, biker, swimmer, and writer, and reader.


Early Life

Lewis was born in Greenfield, Massachusetts to a lower middle class family. Throughout her early life, Lewis's family moved throughout the greater Franklin County area, before eventually settling in the town of Bernardston, on the border of Vermont.

Early Micronational Years

Lewis entered micronationalism in her early teens, forming 'Lewisia' in 2013. Throughout 2013 and 2014, Lewis found herself largely as a main figure in the United Micronations (UMN), a small community consisting mostly of small, simulationist states. After a very short merger period between Lewisia and a small state known as Republic of Styrka, Lewis founded Frieden. Frieden, throughout 2014 went through many government changes, finding itself as a vassal or territory of many smaller nations, such as Juclandia.

Lewis throughout her micronational career founded many small, usually inactive nations. Throughout 2015, Lewis led several small Islamic nations, such as the Republic of Greenfield, and the Islamic Republic of Frieden.

In 2014, the garden area of Lewis' home, which had been a crown-dependency of Austenasia, expanded to include her entire home, forming the Austenasian town of Terentia.

Austenasia

When Terentia became a town in 2014, Austenasia became Lewis' primary area of focus. Throughout the mid two-thousand tens, Lewis slowly made her way through the Austenasian government, eventually being appointed the sixth Deputy Prime Minister under Prime Minister Joseph Kennedy, the first person to be appointed to this role, in June of 2016.

In 2016, Lewis founded the Imperial Party. Initially a civic nationalist party, the organisation slowly reformed itself under the leadership of Joseph Kennedy, growing to the size of ten members by 2018, being the largest political party in Austenasia. Lewis serves as Chairman of the Imperial Party. In the summer of 2018, the Imperial Party held a conference of it's members. In Lewis' speech, she promised that the Imperial Party would begin plans to formulate a working Austenasian currency, as well as appealed to the ideas of Austenasian unity and culture.

Throughout the late summer and early fall of 2018, Lewis found herself at the head of a large cultural revolution within Terentia. Through August and September, Terentia began to transform itself. In Terentia, according to Lewis, there had always been a cultural identity, however it had never been properly expressed to the Austenasian community. Through legislation and public meetings of Terentians, a unique identity centered around the Grateful Dead and other such bands began to emerge, Terentians describing themselves as a 'hippy enclave' within Austenasia. In September, Lewis founded The Church of the Golden Road to Unlimited Devotion along with a group of Terentians, to serve as the spiritual and cultural guides of Terentia.

Lewis proudly serves as Deputy Prime Minister, as well as Speaker of the House of Representatives, with no intentions to leave either position in the foreseeable future.

Political career

In November 2013, Lewis was made Governing Commissioner of the Austenasian Crown Dependency of Terentia. Lewis was also in charge of a micronation known as Frieden from early September 2012 until late August 2014, when it dissolved. In mid-August 2014, Lewis joined the Ashukov Federation, becoming a member of the National Party, but later left.

On 1 September 2014, Eren was put in power in the Tsardom of New Elmhurst, becoming the Tsar.

In late 2014, Terentia expanded, to include Lewis' house. In November 2014, the Parliament of Austenasia voted to make Terentia a town.

In early March of 2015, Lord Dux Joseph Kennedy was elected Prime Minister of the Empire of Austenasia. The next day, HIM Jonathan I appointed Lewis as the Minister of Defence, a position she held until February 2018. On 10 March 2016, Eren was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives by his fellow Representatives.

Military career

Lewis currently directs the North American Command of the Imperial Navy, having formerly served as the Legate of Legio I Virginia and Tribune of Cohors I Nova Anglia in the Austenasian Army before said units were transferred to the Navy in March 2015. Although functionally a Vice Admiral, she held the rank of Admiral for reasons of precedence during his tenure as Minister of Defense.
