He has faced several challenges in his reign, such as the multiple divisions of the Kingdom during his reign and the coups of Charlie Dormer and Ryan House. He is a devout Christian and the author of the Maxine epistles.

He is the current Mayor of Agdik, Jermadzor in the Republic of Aswington, representing the Monarchist Party.

Early Days as King of Hilltop (2019-2021)

Max Stenner and Jonah Nichols formed the Kingdom of Woodshire Hill on 15 March 2019, a successor state to Stinocolus. He and Jonah drafted the constitution on that day and the election a day later had Max’s mother Queen Mother Donna elected as District Minister for Hilltop for the Social Democrat Party.

Following this, Max was accused of voter fraud by the Fascist and Loony parties, who wanted to abolish the monarchy, but this never came to anything.

On 6 October 2019, Max Stenner created the Peerage of Hilltop at the Pub Meeting. Many royals were granted titles.

The following year of Max’s reign was dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns being enforced by macronational governments. Max was against lockdown and considered COVID-19 to be not much worse than the flu. Some of the royal family, including Prince Jack, Duke of Gillingham and Princess Lana, Duchess of Knoyle tested negative for the virus in August 2020.

Instability (2021)

Early Coups

On 19 January 2021, the First Civil War occurred, which resulted in Max being forced to abdicate to Ryan House. Prince Jack and Queen Mother Donna briefly served as Co-King and Queen for a few hours until Max’s forces took back control and the abdication was reversed by Hilltop Parliament.

On 23 January 2021, a second coup occurred, the 23 January Coup, once again led by Ryan House with Charlie Dormer. This resulted in Tom Gilly being proclaimed King and Max going into exile. However, House and Dormer turned on Tom a day later because he preferred DC to Marvel, causing Max to regain the throne.

This was followed by the Second Hilltop Civil War, led by Charlie Dormer, on 12 February 2021, this resulted in the Pizza Agreement between Max and Charlie with Hilltop being split in half. Charlie broke his promise and successfully deposed Max a day later. Dormer declared independence from the United Republic of Englica as 'Emperor of Hilltop'. A counter force led by Max Stenner and Oscar Thow brought Max back on the throne for once and for all.

Political instability, weakness and strife plagued Hilltop and on 26 February 2021, the Kingdom was formally split in half with Ryan House as King of Bertia and Max as King of Hilltop. Both nations were still apart of the URE. Under Jonah Nichols and Josiah Welch, the Kingdoms were reunited with Max at the helm on 7 March.

Later wars

The Bertian Civil War broke out on 26 April 2021 when the Bertian populace declared the Republic of Bertia with Oscar Thow as President of Bertia. Max I singlehandedly led attempts to defeat the rebellion but failed. The Bertian republicans continued to occupy the area until the Battle of Feld when Max and Olly Gooding defeated them.

On 13 June 2021, Arthur II a 'warrior' occupied Stevenshous and Bertia and proclaimed himself 'King of the Britons' and independence from the United Republic of Englica with support of Ryan House in the Antenna War. Max I and his plentiful forces defeated him on the 16 June.

This was followed by Max I giving Bertia semi-independence as a Kingdom of the United Republic of Englica led by Oscar Thow as King, thus bringing an end to the Bertian Wars.

2021 Hilltop Riots

On 9 August 2021, Max I instituted a Royal bill without the permission of parliament, which decreed that The Bible was now law in Hilltop, likely brought on by his increasing religiousness. The move was denounced by all political parties except for the Hilltop Salvation Party. 2 days later, most of Parliament, except Social Democrat MP Charlotte Young, went on strike until the law was repealed.

On the 14th of August, Max came to an agreement with the Social Democrat protesters, including District Minister Queen Mother Donna and they returned to Parliament on that day, but the Jackobites are continuing to protest. A few days later on the 22nd of August, Max, Queen Mother Donna, Duchess of Tarrant and Prince Daniel, Duke of Mere met with protesters in Mere, but this ended in the Battle of Denes, a stalemate.

Current era

He has participated in the Hilltop Capture the Flag games.

Micronational influence

Max Stenner led a petition to stop the MicroWiki ads on 2 April 2021, they were removed later that day by Andrew Creed, mentioning the ’serious reactions’ to it. Stenner’s petition, which was signed by numerous micronational leaders, Jonah Nichols, Anthony of Saspearian and President Kristiāns Dzirkalis of Ambestan, may have had an effect.
