Don Carlo of Lamburg-Massaca also known as Carlo of Nossia and The Sun Prince, is the Prince of Nossia. He is the first Prince of Nossia and the founder of the Principality, being also a dynast of the House of Lamburg and younger brother of Ivan, Kanfre of Lifréia. Under his reign, the principality overcame the difficulties of the civil war. He is also the President of the Republic of Palco.

Early Life and Micronationalism[edit | edit source]

Prince Carlo of Astra was born on 07 July 2000, in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil, second son of the Princes of Astra and younger brother of Prince Ivan of Lamburg. He was baptized in Pelotas, Rio Grande do Sul, the hometown of his family, later that year. His subsequent early life was less than typical, save a few particular incidents involving his close family.

Early Reign[edit | edit source]

His reign started the same day Nossia was founded, on 05 January 2016, with his coronation occurring on 12 January 2016, after the Nossian-Lifreian Civil War, in which he led the Nossians from July until December 2015. He then used his new influence as Prince on behalf of the reconstruction of the diplomatic ties with the Empire of Lifreia and the establishment of peace again. He also began the participation of the principality, an until-then isolationist nation, albeit on a small scale, on foreign affairs. Following his accession, Carlo became known for his affability and friendliness, and for allowing his subjects easy access to his person. However, he also showed an almost impenetrable reserve, especially concerning his political agendas and private affairs. His court gained a reputation for moral laxity and merryness.

Later Reign[edit | edit source]

After almost a year of reign, Carlo and Oscar I began negotiations to unite Nossia to the Empire with the status of member state. He also saw the participation of principality in the Lundener Civil War, supporting the loyalist side in a propagandist capacity.

Currently[edit | edit source]

However, it was determined that the principality would be a protectorate for one month since, for the imperial government, it would be a sufficient period for the princely government to end all their disputes to join the Empire or give up doing it. Despite the relatively peaceful period, the principality chose to maintain its independence through a referendum held on 16 March 2017, the result of which was recognized by the Emperor-King of Karnia-Ruthenia the following day[1]. The prince was also appointed as the Minister of Information of Karnia-Ruthenia and as a member of the House of Representatives.

On 13 March 2018, due to the Imperial Decree n. 135-2018, the Banate of Horvatia was restored and he was appointed by Oscar I to become the first non-Horvatian to assume the office and also the command of the Fifth Army when headquartered in Agram. He was the last Ban of Horvatia and kept the title of Ban until 31 December 2020, when the Imperial Council agreed to transfer the kingdom to the Kingdom of Taslavia. Eventually, the Fifth Army was restored and is now headquartered in Eminia.

In July of 2023, the Prince endeavored to reform and streamline the Nossian governmental apparatus, rolling out a brief series of princely decrees dissolving the position of High-Chancellor, empowering the President of Parliament, along with other provisions, but the bureaucratic innovations thought by him would prove to be short-lived. Articulations and maneuverings were begun by Nossian Nationalist Party MPs, intending to convince him to reverse his decrees, re-establishing the status quo ante. This, along with threats by the Labour Party to boycott the subsequent sessions of the Princely Parliament together with some of the independent-list MPs convinced the prince to reluctantly reverse his decrees, which was considered a political victory by both parties and a humiliation by His Highness' office. By September of the same year, complaining of weariness and burnout, the prince ordered the transportation of luggage to one of the princely villas, Pettra Bianca, in the province of Ibelina, where he spent the rest of the year, also receiving distinguished guests for Christmas celebrations there.

Personal Life[edit | edit source]

Known for his reserved behavior, His Highness has begun holding a strong grip on all the information that flows from the princely palaces and villas. Pending spare time in his busy schedule, the prince is interested in classical antiquity; the early Roman Republic, Principate, Dominate, and all the other periods are some of his main topics of interest. The prince has unilateral renal agenesis, where one of his kidneys is atrophied and the other has grown in size and assumed the functions of two organs.
