Charles Aelred Ross (known professionally as Charlie) is an American-Phoklandian political commentator, micronationalist and micro-statesman serving as the current monarch of the Principality of Graustark. Charles is best known for his role as Tsar of Phokland (a position he has occupied since 2007) as well as for holding several other positions and titles within many micronations throughout the community at various times.
On 14 March 2019, Charles became a non-residential subject of the Empire of Austenasia after founding the Austenasian Territory of Bregusland, which he administers as its Governor as Lord Charles Ross, Duke of Occidentia. He also became the Austenasian Consul in Arizona.
Tsar Charles began his micronational carrier in 2007 when he created/ran the Kingdom of Rosston in the playground of his primary school until it's dissolution in 2013. Following the restoration of Rosston (now renamed Phokland), he was selected as Prime Minister of the now defunct People's Republic of Phokland in December of 2017. From there he became the monarch of the Principality of Phokland, a position that later evolved into Viceroy for the Viceroyalty of Phokland then to Tsar of the Tsardom of Phokland.
Charles served as Tsar until late 2019 when (after a spat with the OAM that resulted in his departure) he abdicated his position, opting instead to focus his time on a new project dedicated more towards creative freedoms than towards international prestige. In addition, it was during this time that Charles became Deputy Secretary of State for the Commonwealth of Dracul.
Outside of micronationalism, Lord Charles Ross spends the majority of his free time either researching history or running. In addition, he is a huge fan of film and enjoys watching movies either at home or at the cinema. Lord Charles also works as the Official Historian for the Empire of Austenasia and though this is considered by many to be a "job", he considers it a fun side task.
