Quintus De Vitaliis, KGFO, OotIS, OotF, M1DS, GCTC, et al., (Hellenic: Κουΐντος Δε Βιτάλης; Latin: QVĪNTVS DE VĪTĀLĪS; South Ruthenian: Кўінтоус Дһє Віталійс), born on (AUC) 2752.03.04 (Thursday the 4th of March 1999 AD), also referred to by his initials QDV, is the founder and current Governor of Græcia, as well as the current Secretery-General of the League of Hellenistic Micronations.
De Vitaliis was born in Athens, the Third Hellenic Republic. His family roots hail mainly from Hellas (3/4 from two islands of the Aegean Sea and 1/4 from Arcadia, Peloponnese), with a small chance of having Egyptian DNA, due to the presence of ancestors born there, but ultimately descended from Hellenes.
Quintus was always interested in how the geopolitical conflicts shaped his country and the surrounding areas but any of his micronational attempts until he got involved with the micronational world were only put on paper; a pencil and a dozen of coloured pencils were enough for him to express his ever-growing creativity.
Under the name Quintus II Dejanović or Dragaš, he was the last addition to the House of Memeraeus and one of the last former members to resign from their rights. He worked his way through the ranks of the simple citizens to become an elite member of the group and, eventually, member of the Administration. A number of events in the roughly 4 months of his presence in the Imperial Council, forced him and the rest of the moderators to resign from the Council and live in exile, leaving Antonius and Peter without a proper administration team.
Since early 2020 AD, Quintus has been inactively involved with State of Zenia, the successor state of Memeraeus. For a long time, Quintus hadn't disclosed any information regarding his presence in the Stoa – yet, he has verbally expressed his gratitude for the time he has spent as a citizen of Zenia.
After many months of personal debate, Quintus decided on the 20th of August 2020 AD to lay the foundations of his own microstate, Græcia, located in Hellas. He became the Provisional Governor of Græcia, before assuming power as the Governor on the 12th of October of the same year.
Personal views and beliefs
Quintus is a self-described "traditionalist conservative", often characterised as an "explicitly discriminatory profiler" by people close to him.
He was raised an Orthodox Christian and although he has regained ties with his parents' religion, despite averting from religion and spiritualism at some point in his life, he is in parallel a devout Græcian paganist, worshipping the seven deities; Moon, Fire, Water, Stars, Dark god, White goddess, and the Sun.
Quintus is a skilful graphic designer; a self-taught Photoshopper and a natural pencil drawer, he began producing comics at the age of 5 or 6. He is also very keen in language learning; he currently possesses 4 certificates and speaks at a decent level 7 languages, including his native/mother tongue, Hellenic. His foreign language skills apply to English (C2), German (B2), Italian (B1), Croatian (B1), Serbian (same level as Croatian) and French (B1, although he hasn't acquired a certificate yet). Apart from those pass-times, he is an avid collector, currently possessing banknotes, coins, stamps, association football jerseys, scarves and tickets, as well as tickets from airplanes, other means of transport and museums.
