Life Story

William was born to Cheryl Lehman on 31 August 1995. Robert Lehman met Cheryl and eventually they wedded and became William's stepfather.

Robert was around in William's early days however he had to move back to Tasmania for over 4 years to help with his terminally ill father. He did eventually come back and supported William while growing up. His mother Cheryl made sure to provide everything she could for William to ensure he had a happy childhood.

William attended Our Lady Queen of Peace Primary School and eventually went to Mount Carmel Secondary College. Both were private catholic schools and provided great education. He eventually graduated Year 12 and attended the University of Adelaide to undertake a Bachelor of Economics, he eventually left the university after one semester because the course was boring and dry. He did however get a High Distinction in Japanese Society.

It was from here that he started working as a Legal Secretary, before moving onto a Paralegal position. William then moved into the health sector and now works as medical Receptionist in General Practice.

Micronational Life

The Empire of Lehmark had humble beginnings, William had observed a documentary on YouTube regarding Micronations and some of the things that people were doing, how they went about it and why they wanted to build their own states. William, having a long interest in politics and wanting a political career of his own, but having lost total faith in the political system of his homeland of Australia, set out to build his own.

Originally Lehmark was to be an Empire located in Antarctica specifically - Marie Byrd Land - that was before the William discovered Westarctica, then the Empire was to exist in South Antarctica, but this too ran into issues. Unsure of what to claim and out of frustration he stated that Lehmark claimed the Earth, while he gave himself time to build Lehmark, and this proved to be a fatal decision. Lehmark ultimately claimed Earth for about 48 hours, there was diplomatic fallout, a negative story published by 'The Glastiven', and William had to vigorously defend the actions of the Empire. Eventually it 'blew over'.

With growing elitism William made the ultimate decision to remove Lehmark from the GUM, with initial fears of this decision backfiring, it ended up proving to be in Lehmark's best interests.

William strives to keep Lehmark active and growing and most important keeping Lehmark neutral. Since the GUM and Micronational Confederation, Lehmark has remained staunchly neutral and as a display of their commitment against micronational warfare, Lehmark abolished the Department of Armed Forces and replaced it with the Department of Culture.

Lehmark could be classified as a growing micronational power, with over 80 Citizens and 8 States now forming the Empire, Lehmark has continued to grow and prosper under the Emperor's guidance.

Non-Micronational Life

Outside of being a Micronational Leader, William works in General Practice as a Medical Receptionist. Before this he has worked in the fields of law, podiatry and physiotherapy.

Apart from his educational aspirations William is also an avid reader, historian and art and architecture admirer.

William is currently studying an Advanced Diploma of Conveyancing and the Korean language.

Political Views

William personally views the politics of Australia to be broken which is why he started his own country. He still supports Queen Elizabeth II as Queen of Australia but no longer recognises her as his Sovereign.

William's personal political views don't quite fit into left or right, he is a firm believer is free education, healthcare, food and housing, but also supports conservative opinions in areas of governance alone.

He is very politically motivated in terms of Human Rights and what he sees a Human Rights Abuses of the Australian Government as well as strong views on Environmental Protection, two things which became cornerstones of Lehmark.
