Petrus I (Pierce Anderson; born 29 January 2003), self styled as Petrus Majesté, is the King of Winterspell. On 10 December 2017, he was called upon to accept the newly created Winterspell throne and reign as its first monarch.

Personal Life

Early Life and Education

Petrus was born on 29 January, 2003 in Longmont, Colorado as the first child of parents John and Holly. He attended school in the local district for his entire education. Petrus' only sibling, Princess Olivia was born on Christmas Eve in 2008. He spent his childhood often playing games like Minecraft where his future kingdom would find its roots.

Creation of Winterspell

In the spring of 2016, Petrus along with his friend Hunter founded the Winterspell Club in their Minecraft city of Linsonkeep.

On 13 April 2017, Petrus created a Discord server for the Winterspell Club. By the end of that year, the Winterspell monarchy was established.

Reign

On 10 December 2017, Petrus was called upon by the population of the Winterspell Discord server to ascend the throne as he was the only one to whom it made sense to give. Upon his acceptance of the throne and in the months following, he appointed his friends Hunter, Aidan, Jackson, and Quinn princes to aid his rule.


Constitution

Petrus was in attendance at the first and only Winterspell constitutional convention where the first draft of the current constitution was produced. This convention marked one of the most significant turning points of Petrus' reign. The new constitution defined what his role in Winterspell was, though it was written in vague language allowing for many loopholes. Petrus had a hand in establishing the Winterspell Parliament which has lasted nearly uninterrupted since 10 January 2019.

Establishment of the Treasury

On 16 January 2020 Petrus established, through an act of parliament, the Royal Winterspell Treasury which now works to pull in funds for the kingdom.


11 February 2020

On the 11 February 2020, Princes Jackson and Quinn left the kingdom. This caused a general panic. Petrus disbanded parliament for the first time as the two departed princes formed two thirds of the upper house. In the period without parliament, Petrus made reforms to how it worked removing the upper house entirely making it unicameral. He reinstated parliament just over a month afterwards.

June Concordat

On 28 May 2020, parliament attempted to exile a member of the Discord server. This move was vetoed by Petrus though the veto was overturned. This instigated a new set of reforms knows as the 'June Concordat'. This document changed how parliament, titles, the judiciary, and the entire social system worked. This reform saw much support from members of the server and has continued to affect how the government works today.

Prime Minister

On 6 October 2020, Winterspell reached 100 people for the first time. This milestone prompted the proposal to create a Prime Minister position to administer the Winterspell Parliament. This function was previously held by Petrus who relinquished it to the new parliamentary role.
