Matthew I was the only King of Greater Carolina. He is German American that prefers to be considered Saxon. He claimed his family origin can be traced to a long line of Euorpean Royalty and Nobility ranging from Central to Eastern Europe.

Matthew was a former General Field Marshall for the Imperial Army of New Europe and Grand Admiral for the Imperial Navy of New Europe. Although his career in the military is considered controversial today, he is viewed as New Europe's military father. He is part of American societies such as the Sons of the American Revolution and the Sons of Confederate Veterans. He became a figure of controversy with the outbreak of the Carolina Wars of which he lead the Imperial Army to annex North Carolina to form a united Carolinian micronation, the Kingdom of Greater Carolina. He was summoned to the Grand Unified Micronational to answer for his actions. This session was famous after he offended Robert Lethler by comparing communism to imperialism.

The session in GUM marked the end of the New Euro-USMR alliance and the first steps towards what be the New Euro-Erusian War. He would later be disgraced when his Conservative Party became the object of hate and accusations of Nazism throughout the New European Reformation. His united Carolina was partitioned between North Carolina and the Republic of New Afrika. His reign over North Carolina was uneventful and he slipped into inactivity to focus on his studies to become an officer in the United States Army. On 04 August 2016 he formally renounced all rights to the Carolinian thrones.

Reign[edit | edit source]

King of South Carolina[edit | edit source]

Matthew I was made King of South Carolina when he declared it a member state of New Europe. Then he became the highest ranking military officer in the Imperial Army and Imperial Navy of New Europe. He was a dedicated soldier and was considered to be the "father of the Imperial Army", for his contributions to its organization, uniforms and customs. In May 2009, he lead an Army expedition that resulted in the annexation of North Carolina by New Europe.

King of Greater Carolina[edit | edit source]

Though few accepted his rule as a legal one, Matthew became the King of a united Carolinian state called Kingdom of Greater Carolina. His rule over the state was seen as the climax of New European expansion in the region, and this caused and international scandal for New Europe. Matthew went before the GUM and made his statement regarding the annexation, while doing so he made a comparison to Communism and Imperialism. This offended the Erusian delegation so much that they demanded an apology from him, what was refused by Matthew. He was later relieved of his command in the Army and Navy, for political reasons. Later on Greater Carolina was partioned between their two states once again, with Matthew's home areas remaining under North Carolinian control.

King of North Carolina[edit | edit source]

After Greater Carolina was partioned Matthew was placed on the throne of North Carolina. His reign was uneventful outside of North Carolina, and he was granted the rank of Field Marshal in the Army. His royal duties were decreased due to his attending college.
