Kingdom of America

The Kingdom of America is a large nation in North America ruled over by the House of Lexington since 1818, and the House of Hohenzollern from 1790 to 1818. The current King of America is Henry III.

Structure

The majority of the advisory staff is formed into the Executive Cabinet, with the Chancellor as the chairman. The Chancellor is the appointer of all cabinet members, with the exception of the Secretary to the Monarch, though the appointments require approval of the King before going to Congress for confirmation. The King is the Commander in Chief of the armed forces. As such, the King is authorized to give commands to personnel, but cannot give field orders.

Culture

Early on in American history, the issue of slavery became a heated topic as the nation grew larger. The Libertarian Partywas formed with the idea of gradual or all out abolition of slavery. The idea was formed in opposition to the power of the monarchy as much as humanitarian ideology. They cited Europeans such as Russia and the harsh treatment of Irish indentured servants as evidence that the white population was not safe from slavery under a monarchy. Their efforts saw the restriction of slavery to the western territories, but also several rebellions from pro-slavery states. The largest of which was the Texas Rebellion, which saw the declared Republic of Texas attempt to secede from the Union.   The reliance on militia forces that dominated American military power was ended under King Henry I. Subsequently, the Colleges of the American Royal Military Academy (ARMA) and the American Royal Naval Academy (ARNA) were designated to train military and naval officers, originally overseen by veteran Prussian instructors. This saw the American military be a formidable fighting force.   Under King Henry I, the titles of Duke and Earl were established to build an American aristocracy, much to the praise of the Unionist Party and the chagrin of the Republican Party. The titles were bestowed on American civilians, notably American Revolutionary commanders, who have performed significant accomplishments for American society. The law allowed for One Duke and three Earls per state, with nomination being from the Chancellor and appointed by the monarch.   The idea of Manifest Destiny has always been prominent in American culture and politics. It led to the compromise of the Mexican Purchase, as well as attempted filibusters in Oregon, Cuba, and Nicaragua.   The Continental Ordinance has driven American foreign policy since its inception, in particular with respect to the affairs of Europe. The Ordinance forbade the American intervention in European politics and wars, but also required the American nations to suppress any European intervention in affairs of any nation in the Americas. Though not every nation in the Americas have signed the Ordinance, it has nonetheless caused significant consequences to the signatories.

History

The idea of the United States came after receiving independence from Great Britain in 1783. However, the following governing document of the Articles of Confederation proved to be too weak to govern effectively, and thus a new form of government was needed. A radical idea from Alexander Hamilton and Nathaniel Gorham to place Prince Henry von Hohenvollern of Prussia, younger brother of Frederick the Great, as monarch. Though initially divisive towards the idea, utilizing the Federalist Papers and the presence of Prince Henry himself in the Capitol, the vote eventually passed by a narrow margin to approve. George Washington was elected as the first Chancellor of America, a title modeled after the Minister President of Prussia, though with more federal protection and executive power to ensure the monarch cannot be an absolutist.   The Kingdom faced considerable problems from the start, as politicians such as Thomas Jefferson were openly hostile to the idea of monarchy. Jefferson, who had been serving as Secretary of State, would eventually resign in 1792 and declared the Oregon Territory to be an independent Republic.   Wars against the native tribes were inherited by King Henry early in his reign. Henry was appalled by the American's reliance on militia, and ordered they be integrated under Federal Officers for more oversight and training. With this action, crimes against the allied native tribes decreased, and the wars eventually brought the tribes under American jurisdiction. This increased tensions with the colonies in British North America.   America became openly hostile to the revolutionary government of France in 1792. Though Chancellor Washington wished to remain neutral, King Henry demanded military action against the disruption of American naval operations. Without Chancellor support, war could not officially be declared. The First Franco-American War was declared in 1798 after Chancellor John Adams agrees with King Henry, and naval actions begin in the Caribbean Sea. Relations with the former slave colony of Haiti dramatically improve as the island is crucial to French finances. The war ended in 1801 after Napoleon, First Consul of France, sued for peace.   The war against the French would continue in 1803 as Crown Prince Louis Ferdinand is killed during action against French and Spanish forces in the Louisiana Territory. Though critics of the war declared the Prince's actions as illegal, war was still declared against the Spanish and French. The Louisiana Territory became a site of American conquest by American forces. The Second War ended in an American victory in 1806. Originally, America argued for the captured Port of New Orleans, but Napoleon and Charles IV of Spain offered the entirety of Louisiana in exchange for financial compensation. King Augustus I became known as Agustus the Conqueror in America for the action.   In 1809, King Augustus II entered the War of the Third Coalition, and sent American troops for the first time to Europe to support Louis I and the Kingdom of Holland during the Battle of Antwerp. The battle ended in a coalition victory, leading to the eventual downfall of Napoleon.   In 1815, America and Britain went to war once again after hostilities between the British North American Colonies reached a tipping point as the latter supported Native insurrections in American western territories. Though the War of the North ended in an American victory, King Augustus II wished to not annex any Canadian territory, as he understood the conflict was against rebelling colonists and not the British themselves. Instead, the two nations formalized a hardline border and foreign policy.   Following the War of the North, King Augustus declared the House of Lexington to better align with American heritage, being named as the "First American King". He also decreed the Continental Ordinance, declaring an end of American intervention in Europe, and the enforcement of lack of further European expansion in the Americas. Nations such as Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Argentina, and Haiti would also adopt this document as foreign policy.   In 1838, Chancellor Henry Clay and King Augustus II formalize an agreement with the Empire of Mexico under Vicente I. The following purchase of Mexican lands secured American access to the Pacific Ocean. However, though he disagreed with the purchase, the deal was done so that Clay could have the support for the abolition movement happening in America. The proposed Constitutional Amendment sees significant state opposition, leading to the Texas Rebellion in 1839. The rebellion ends in a federal victory in 1841.   In 1842, Chancellor Daniel Webster used federal funds to compensate former slave owners, directly leading to the Economic Panic of 1844. Though the funds helped to lessen the outrage over abolition, Chancellor John P. Hale uses federal forces in order to ensure the safety of the newly freed African-Americans. However, despite efforts for integration, many freed persons are forced to Haiti or to the American Territory of Freeman.   Gold was discovered in the territories of California and Colorado beginning in 1848. The mass migration west saw the American population shift dynamically. This migration eventually led to the discovery of gold in Freeman as well in 1859. American businessmen planned to build a railroad connecting the two coasts together. Many politicians in Freeman argued they should have a say in the construction, and thus argued for statehood. This required that the people of Freeman, overwhelmingly of African descent, receive the right to vote, thus requiring citizenship. Two Constitutional Amendments are proposed and submitted in 1861, one granting citizenship to black Americans, the other granting universal male suffrage. Both are gradually adopted by late 1863.   These amendments, however, were first proposed in 1849, under the Chancellory of John P. Hale. John C. Fremoent, Premier of the Senate, forced the votes on the amendments in Congress. However, these "Gunpoint Amendments" were later challenged and suspended by Premier William King under the pretense that the votes in objection were excluded, as many of them came from rebelling states.   In 1850, Franklin Pierce wins the election for Chancellor on the grounds of annexing Cuba as a possible cash crop territory and a slave plantation society. The action see support among the Whig Party, who believe the addition of the territory would strengthen the southern cause, as well as the Unionist Party, who have grown to favor American expansion. However, Pierce's more controversial demands, notably the calls for the conquest of the Republic of Oregon, receives little support. International relations with Oregon are significantly diminished, as well as Pierce's political standing. As public and political support for the act is minimal, King William I refuses to allow for federal troops to be sent to Oregon. However, filibuster attempts in Cuba go unchecked.   In 1854, Sir Winfield Scott of the Unionist Party won election for Chancellor on the argument for domestic reforms, notably the reformation of the public school system under the descretion of Horrace Mann as Department Head. King William I broke with tradition as he openly supported Mann's efforts, thus securing Scott's nomination and later victory. Under Scott, the American education system reformed to reflect that of the Prussian school system, and public education enhanced. However, Mann's arguments for the education of African American children garners less support.   In 1865, with the assassination of Emperor Vicente II of Mexico and Empress Maria, who was originally an American Princess, King William I and Chancellor John C. Fremont requested a declaration of war on the new Mexican Provisional Republican Government. The request was granted by Congress, and Mexico was invaded. With the American victory, William placed his grandson, Miguel, as the new Emperor of Mexico. Though Miguel was himself overthrown in 1867, the new King Edward I declined to intervene, as the American people had grown tired of interfering in Mexican affairs. Chancellor Fremont was vocal for support, but was drowned out by the opposition from Congress. General Robert E. Lee is knighted due to his efforts in leading the American Military in Mexico.   In 1868, Chancellor Robert E. Lee refused to commit military forces in the Cuban War for Independence. However, upon Lee's death in 1870, his successor, William H. Seward, attempted to garner support for American intervention in an attempt to gain Cuba as a territory. His term ended before any war could be declared, and Cuba subsequently joined Gran Colombia.   The Kingdom of America saw significant workers protests beginning in 1875, reaching a point of breaking with the Great Railroad Strike of 1877. The movement was spurred on by the election of Libertarian Abraham Lincoln to the office of Chancellor. Lincoln had been a vocal supporter of increased worker's rights, to which many in the opposition began to call his efforts socialism. In response to the opposition, protests in factories, mines, and the railroads slowly gained traction. These protests were oftentimes violently put down, and much of the blame for the violence is placed on Chancellor Lincoln, though the Chancellor argues for peaceful measures to meet the goals. The Unionist Party attempts to open articles of impeachment against Lincoln, claiming his measures for workers rights are causing insurrection. King Edward II distanced himself from Lincoln, causing resentment from the working class towards the monarchy and aristocracy.   In 1893, American missionaries attempted to overthrow the Kingdom of Hawaii in favor of American annexation. However, King Edward II refused to entertain the idea, and advocated for the restoration of the Hawaiian monarchy. It was until his nephew, Edward III, became king that Hawaii was restored as a monarchy in 1909.   In 1917, America hosted the Columbia Conference, in which the nations of North and South America were to decide on policy in regards to the ensuing Great War taking place globally. The Congress of Columbiasought to create a consensus that was meant to bring peace in the region. While the Congress failed to create such a consensus, King Edward III managed to escape the involvement in the conflict.

Legislative Body
The Legislative Branch is controlled by Congress. the Upper Body consists of the Senate, whose members are decided by the states, and the Assembly, whose members are elected by the people. The Senate is presided over the Premier of the Senate, whose role was drastically increased in power and importance under the guidance of Elbridge Gerry.
Judicial Body
The Judicial Branch is controlled by the Supreme Court, whose members are appointed by the Chancellor and serve for life. Notable members of the Supreme Court include John Marshall, who served as Chief Justice after leaving the office of the Chancellor.
Executive Body
The Executive Body of the Government is shared between the Chancellor and the Monarch. Though the roles have shifted throughout the years, traditionally the Chancellor is head of domestic affairs while the Monarch is head of foriegn affairs. Both parties are required to declare war.   The power between the monarchy and the chancellery have fluctuated throughout the nation's history. The power of the mo0narch was the strongest during the reign of King Augustus II. However, under the reign of the aloof Henry II, the power swung to the chencellery, creating a corrupt patronage system in the government.

Creation

  • 1786


    1786

    Shays’ Rebellion begins, highlighting the need for replacement of the Articles of Confederation. Nathaniel Gorham proposes the establishment of a monarchy. Anti-British sentiment in the United States eliminates Prince Frederick from the running. Baron von Steuben nominates Prince Henry I Hohenzollern of his native Prussia. Gorham enlists the help of Alexander Hamilton, who uses his influence to garner political support for the idea and begins to use the printing press to sway public opinion, while Baron von Steuben personally is sent to deliver the proposal to Prince Henry.

  • 1787


    1787

    Hamilton begins to use the Federalist Papers to continue arguing for a monarchy. Of the other two writers, John Jay is convinced while James Madison still remains fringed, but argues that if the idea were to be adopted, it ought to be a constitutional monarchy. Public opinion is swayed into electing delegates approving the concept to the Philadelphia Convention. With Jefferson out of the country, serving as Minister to France, Republican ideas are not as shared so fervently as monarchical. However, a compromise is met to allow for a joint-executive branch with a monarch and an elected official.
      John Adams abruptly nominates George Washington, without the latter’s prior knowledge, but this succeeds in gaining support. Debates cause the adoption of the Constitution to be delayed until spring of 1788.

  • 1788


    1788

    Prince Henry arrives in the United States. Supporters have him speak at one Convention meeting, and his humility gathers more delegate support. Jefferson also returns, years ahead of our timeline, in order to protest, but is too late before the Constitution is finished and ratified by late in the year. The vote for adoption barely succeeds, and hinges mostly on Hamilton’s deal making and Washington’s nomination to the Office of the Chancellor of America. Jefferson begins to rally support around republicanism, but is unable to gain enough in the Convention. This creates a political faction that sets the framework for a party.

  • 1789


    1789

    George Washington hesitantly accepts running as first Chancellor after days of private conservations with Prince Henry. Washington’s campaign is as symbolic as it was in our timeline, winning the election unanimously. Even those on the edges of acceptance find little to argue against the appointment. Washington’s support for Prince Henry continues to sway opinion, and the Prince is eventually accepted by the majority of the American population. The United States officially becomes rebranded as the Kingdom of America. Congress is divided between the Senate and the Assembly.

George Washington’s First Term

  • 1790


    1790

    George Washington is sworn into office in New York, while the now King Henry I is coronated in Philadelphia. Having been inspired much by Washington, the coronation is much more conservative than European counterparts, and is instead similar to the swearing in. Even the crown was designed specifically to be much less extravagant than European counterparts, such as St Edward’s Crown.
      The majority of the advisory staff are formed  into the Executive Cabinet, with the Chancellor as the chairman. The Chancellor becomes the appointer of all cabinet members, with the exception of the Secretary to the Monarch, though the appointments require approval of the King before going to Congress for confirmation. The King becomes the Commander in Chief of the armed forces. As such, the King is authorized to give commands to personnel, but cannot give field orders.
      With the administration now established, Washington’s appointments are Secretary of Treasury Alexander Hamilton, Secretary of the State Thomas Jefferson, Attorney General Edmund Rudolph, and Secretary of War Henry Knox. King Henry I appoints Secretary to the Monarch Nathaniel Gorham. John Adams is selected to be the President of the Senate. 
      During this time, contention fills the Executive Cabinet. Jefferson’s temperament distances many state governors from his efforts. Continuing that, the French Revolution sees him as the sole supporter of the Republican Revolutionaries in the Cabinet. This backfires as a similar uprising occurs in what would be Tennessee under the belief that the newly established government and monarchy are too supporting of Britain by refusing to support France against them. The uprising is led by ambitious visionary Andrew Jackson.
      King Henry dispatches troops only in defensive positions around effected townships, rather than aggressively hunting down the rebels. Once under custody, King Henry issues pardons for all involved, with support from Washington. This sways public opinion against the rebels, and Hamilton’s papers show the King as a protector rather than an aggressor.
      Hamilton’s economic policy is hindered some by this, but Jefferson’s coalition against it is weakened by recent events. Once passed, King Henry establishes permanent trade deals with Prussia and the Netherlands, but urges caution with trade to the French.
      Baron von Steuben is announced as Prussia’s first diplomat to America.

  • 1791


    1791

    A permanent capital of the nation is established, named Columbia. Plans are made for construction of the Congressional building, Presidential mansion, and the King’s palace. Once again, King Henry calls for the building to be scaled down from that of European ones. King Henry I's temperament as a humbled monarch sees continued support, and relations between the Royal and Chancellery Cabinets remains cordial with exemption from Jefferson. Jefferson openly refuses to address Henry as monarch, referring to him only as “The Prussian”.
      After the Tennessee Rebellion is put down, Hamilton uses the opportunity to bind it and the French Revolution to republican ideas and straight to Jefferson. King Henry voices frustration on the reliance Americans have on militia, seeing them as not only ineffective in the Tennessee Rebellion and the Northwest Indian War, but as not accountable to a higher standard of conduct. The King issues the development of a more professional federal force, using Washington’s recommended commanders. This sees the formation of the Legion of America.
      King Henry also orders the designation of an Officer Drill School, later the American Royal Military Academy (ARMA), for the training of an effective and competent officer corps. Legislative pushback is minimal. One of the larger questions is whether it is a domestic matter or an international one, but as it was done with the assistance of Chancellor George Washington, it is designated a joint effort. Funding for such matters becomes controversial, as trade is loosened with Britain and the Canadian territories, further tarnishing relations with France and angering the diminishing voice of American Republicans. Britain also lessens, and eventually ceases, funding and support for Native Americans in the Ohio area, urging them to sue for peace.
      The island of Haiti becomes engulfed in a slave revolt, with Washington and many in Columbia seeking to aid suppression for the sake of stability. However, King Henry is reluctant to send aid to the Haitian white government, seeking a non-interventionist approach. The King argues military attention should remain on the Northwest, that Saint Dominique is a “colony matter of a foreign power.” Lack of cohesion with the Executive is mirrored in the Legislative, as both Houses of Congress debate the course of action.

  • 1792


    1792

    Due to public and government pressure, Jefferson resigns to be replaced by Rudolph. Jefferson’s political career never fully recovers. Madison instead becomes the de facto leader of the American Republican faction, though is unable to win as much of a Congressional control as Jefferson had. Therefore, many of Hamilton’s later proposals are able to be passed, including increased development of machinery and allowing women to work. However, many of his other plans fail, such as child labor introduction.
      King Henry I finalizes his inspections of many militia units and is not impressed. He begins to consolidate the Armed Forces into a federal service, further diminishing local militias, and fundamentally changing the 2nd Amendment. Rudolph uses the position of the State Secretary to position the Governors into sending State and Territorial militia funding into a Federal Defense Budget. Many local state and local militiamen are simply formed into federal forces, receiving greater training and discipline. However, militia leaders are often replaced by federally selected commanders.
      The Northwest Indian War begins to turn in the American’s favor, and atrocities and war crimes bring far more severe punishments. Britain becomes increasingly neutral in the conflict, but offers asylum to Native tribes resisting America. By the end of the year, most of the Indian Confederation has either surrendered or fled westward.
      Publicly, the government remains neutral in the conflict in France, while privately Hamilton calls the Revolutionary Republic “illegitimate”. The Republican Government of France is less enthusiastic towards American relations, as relations with Britain become stronger and America refuses support for colonial slave revolts in the West Indies.
      The American Mint is established, with King Henry and Chancellor George Washington adorning much of the currency. 
      Congress passes the Acts of Conscription. This requires that all free men, upon the age of 16, be required to serve a term of at least three years in the Federal military. Those 19 to 21 at the time of signing must serve at least two. Those older must sign for a Federal draft. This Act see much bipartisan approval, as Federalists see an increase in power to the Federal Government, and the Republicans see it as an anti-British advancement in the Northwest Territories.
      The revolution in Haiti terrifies the delegates from southern states. Efforts are made in Congress to overturn legislation concerning treatment of slavery, arguing leniency would eventually lead to slave revolts on American soil. King Henry is forced to make a statement, lending his support to retain the laws. In his remarks, King Henry states belief that fairer treatment of slaves would lead to less bloodshed between races. Anti and pro slavery factions emerge in Congress.

  • 1793


    1793

    With the execution of King Louis of France, America announces the event as voidable of all trade limitations, causing further diplomatic relations with Britain. King Henry I refuses to take sides with the growing European conflict and tensions between France and Britain, though removes the delegates to Paris for security reasons. This is largely seen by the French as a protest to Republican ideology, but is praised by the British.
      Washington’s view of slavery being legislatively limited and ended comes into the public from insistence of King Henry. Washington still never pushes a full abolitionist agenda, but is more persuaded to limit it with the vetoing of the Fugitive Slave Act. Passage is eventually achieved with a compromise to include regulations on treatment of slaves, banning practices such as execution of slaves without judicial consent.
      The Northwest Indian War has largely ended. King Henry negotiates the Northwest Territory under the control of America, though the western half organized into Native populated area. In a controversial move, the King allows for the Natives to police the territory themselves, punishing illegal settlements from Americans, but also the British. American controlled forts west of the Ohio River and east of the Mississippi River are granted to native warriors, under the conditions to be partially maintained by American commanders. Reparations are paid to tribes disproportionately destroyed during the conflict. Ratification of the treaty was difficult in Congress, only successful after arguing better relations with the Natives would be required to force the British out of American territories. This area would go on to become the Huron Territory.
      In the later months of the year, Washington wins re-election for Chancellor of America.

George Washington’s Second Term

  • 1794


    1794

    While both Executive heads sought to remain out of the War of the First Coalition, the increase in piracy and lack of security for American merchant vessels causes King Henry I to reinstate the US Navy. The Maritime Security Institute, later the American Royal Naval Academy (ARNA) is first established as well. The Jay Treaty is also negotiated, with more concessions being granted to Native tribes in order to garner their support against the British. British-American relations begin to ease, as well as Native relations. The British formally remove all troops from the Northwest Territory. Negations with Spain begin in order to open the port of New Orleans, needed to increase American trade in order to afford the growing military.
      However, increased enforcement of tariffs targeting distilled spirits cause yet another insurrection. Resentment towards the tariffs had been unpopular since the signing in 1792, but hostilities turn violent. Washington and Henry both personally lead a federal force against the insurrection. After meeting with the rebel leaders, all are arrested without conflict to once again be pardoned several months later. This increases not only the popularity of the Federal Government as a whole, but also instills voting for Madison’s Democratic-Republican Party within the frontier as opposed to armed rebellion. Hamilton is able to direct this conflict towards the Republicans, a sentiment that becomes voiced by Washington as well. King Henry chooses to not comment on blame, only urges unification under a single national identity.
      Congress is able to pass the Slave Trade Act, denying American vessels to participate in the International Slave Trade, and banning slave exports from States. King Henry sparks outrage when he publicly states that he views slaves as people first, property second.

  • 1795


    1795

    The Jay Treaty is fully ratified, inflaming tensions with France. France’s Republican government recalls its ministers from America in protest. Britain begins submitting rumors and propaganda against American officials, claiming to be in league with the French Republic, particularly those who were against the treaty. Homeland Secretary Randolph is hit hard, as it is revealed he moved to undermine American, and ultimately King Henry’s, governing competency and seemingly taking bribes from the French Republic. Randolph resigns in disgrace, and Hamilton further ties the ideas of Republicanism to French allegiance.
      Southern states grow resentful of the treaty, but Hamilton is able to convince many that major political opposition is directly funded by the French to undermine American sovereignty, though the impact is marginal. This, coupled with France’s abolition of slavery in their constitution begins to sway southern opinion to anti-French. James Madison’s control of the Republican Party begins to wane as his stance of anti-Jay Treaty, pro-French revolutionaries, and defense of the institution of slavery become cemented as party platform.
      An abolitionist segment of the Republican Party, being known as the Liberty or Libertarian Party, begins to take form.
      The treaty solidifies a border between the American Kingdom and the territory of Upper Canada. With the removal of British forces from the Northwest Territory, King Henry appoints a delegate to the Indian Confederacy, informally recognizing them as an independent nation. Opposition is fierce to this decision, as it is believed it would disrupt settling of the area. Supporters argue it is necessary to avoid another war. Chancellor Washington orders governors to the rest of the territory.
      Hamilton resigns his position as Secretary, though remains a prominent supporter of both the Chancellery and the Monarch, writing essays and speaking lectures.

  • 1796


    1796

    The 4th Congress is elected, with the Federalist Party retaining a majority in the Senate, while also being the party with the most seats in the Assembly. However, the Libertarians and the Republicans combined have the majority. This three way split of the Assembly causes compromises in most legislative matters. Federalists and Libertarians begin to work on legislation to prohibiting the expansion of the institution of slavery.
      A slave revolt begins in the Carolinas, being inspired by the lack of suppression of the Haitian Revolt and causing hysteria among Southerners. The revolt prolongs for more than a month before being suppressed by the local military. Memoirs of the rebels written by supporters are posthumously made public, bringing to light many of the conditions that slaves endure. Abolition movements grow in numerous states, and boycotts of slave produced goods begins.
      The War of the First Coalition begins to come to an end, with many European nations either exiting or switching sides. Support for France in America continues to decline, for various reasons. France begins to target American merchant vessels, sparking cries for war.

  • 1797


    1797

    King Henry I sends delegates to Paris in order to ease growing tensions. These negotiations fail, as the French diplomat demands bribery and payment before negotiations proceed. The public outcry is immense, as the French Republican Government is seen as a violent and greedy institution. King Henry addresses Congress, stating that diplomatic measures might have been exhausted.
      Chancellor George Washington announces he will not seek re-election for a third term. The campaign is split three ways, with John Adams running for the Federalists, James Madison for the Republicans, and Elbridge Gerry, one of the failed diplomats to France, for the Libertarians.
      War of the First Coalition comes to an end, though Congress denies trade relations with the new Republic. Public opinion has peaked against France, and relations with Britain has quietly improved. Merchant ships begin conversion while construction of American frigates conclude.
      John Adams is elected Chancellor of America.

John Adams' Term

  • 1798


    1798

    Diplomacy with France has officially failed. American shipping lanes are targeted by French privateers. King Henry I meets with Chancellor John Adams, and though the latter is reluctant at first, the two address Congress for approval on a formal declaration of war. In May of 1798, Congress approves, and conflicts begin rapidly in the Caribbean.
      Later in the year, Britain and another European coalition also declare war on France. America never officially becomes a member of the Coalition. Relations with Spain is hindered as Spanish ports in the Caribbean and Florida offer port to the French Navy. Anti-British immigrants begin to protest the Franco-American War. In reaction, Federalist Congress passes the Alien and Sedition Acts, greatly diminishing the party’s popularity and receiving condemnation from the King.
      A statute barely passes Congress, prohibiting the slave trade in the Mississippi Territory. Relations between the North and South sour further. Regardless, Georgia legislation bans importation of new slaves.
      Washington passes away, with King Henry declaring a day of mourning. The monarchy formally funds funeral processions, holding a wake in the newly completed Royal Palace setting a precedent going forward. Henry personally pays respect the Washington, and reads an impassioned speech dedicated to the victories of Washington’s life, adding to his popularity. Many demand the construction of a mausoleum, but King Henry orders that Washington’s will be respected and his remains be buried at his home at Mount Vernon. He does, however, agree on a memorial.
      Britain seeks a complete end to endorsing Native rebellion against America as the two powers become more amicable as they fight the French. In the years since the Jay Treaty, American officials sought to retain positive relations with the Natives in the area. This is bolstered tremendously by the now depletion of the largest anti-American funding. Native controlled forts allow for the area to be maintained and policed, medical and technical advances increase Native quality of life, and mutual military cooperation allows for local alliances. Natives are trained and drilled in modern European warfare, and Americans learn the fundamentals of Native based guerrilla tactics. This sees the formation of the Pathfinders, later formed as the Army Rangers.

    The war with France swings in America’s favor. Most altercations see the American Navy seize many French vessels. Using this tactic, the American Navy triples in ship size. Most of these are held as ransom in order to secure American priorities after the war. Spain closes off its ports to France after King Henry I threatens closing the Mississippi River to Spanish trade ships. Stuck between the American and British Royal Navies, Spain ceases support for France in the Caribbean, while supplying forces on the European continent. King Henry rejects calls for armed conflict with Spain, claiming France as the primary threat.
      The king, age 74 at this time, grows worried about his ailing health and sends word to Prussia, requesting the presence of his younger brother, Prince Augustus Ferdinand, in order to secure succession of the crown.
      Napoleon Bonaparte becomes First Consul of the French Republic.
      A resolution passed both houses of Congress, and sent to the states to ratify, that would allow the Chancellor to appoint the President of the Senate as opposed to being the runner up for the Chancellery. This is in response to James Madison being the President, despite low approval of Federalists and Libertarians, who combine hold a super majority in the Senate. This eventually becomes the Twelfth Amendment.

    1800

    Napoleon seeks an end to the war with America and enters negotiations. American demands of reparations are denied, and King Henry refuses any treaty excluding them. Britain wishes America to continue the war so as to help weaken the French Navy during the War of the Second Coalition. In an address to both nations, Congress and the Office of the Monarch issues ultimatums. If France wished to end the war, they must pay back the reparations. If Britain wished to continue the war, they must end all impressment of American sailors and release those in custody. Impressment had been radically scaled down in the years, but still continued on limited vessels. Britain is the first to accept terms, and thus America harasses French vessels to its various colonies in the West Indies.
      A consulate is sent to the island of Saint Dominique. Trade relations are established and a military presence is stationed on the island. This hinders Napoleon’s hopes of colonial restoration and kickstarting talks of Haitian independence.
      In the Congressional elections, states such as Kentucky, Tennessee, and many of the Southeastern States become strong Republican controlled areas.

      Wishing to have the succession secured, the Federalists agree to the terms, as well as agree to allow the Alien and Sedition Acts to expire, in a coalition with Libertarians. Upon the approval of the succession, King Henry I abdicates, and Prince Augustus Ferdinand is announced as King Augustus I.
      John Adams reputation is extremely tarnished, and is convinced to not seek re-election. The campaign for Chancellor of America is ran by Libertarian Aaron Burr, Federalist John Marshall, and Republican James Madison. John Marshall secures the most votes, though not a majority, by the closest margins in American history up to that point. He does so only after selecting Elbridge Gerry as running mate to split the Libertarian vote, and Madison only gaining electoral votes in Tennessee and South Carolina. However, Libertarians become the largest party in Congress as the Federalists are increasingly viewed as aristocratic and elitist.

    Chancellor John Marshall quickly enacts an executive order blocking enforcement of the remaining clauses of the Alien and Sedition Acts, and pardoning all those prosecuted under it. His standing with Libertarians increase.
      Elbridge Gerry begins to formulate a larger power to the office of the PotS. He removes the standing rule of disallowing the position to engage in and direct debate, force a vote on legislation, and brings a more hands on role in Senate duties. This move is controversial, but allows for the Marshall-Gerry objectives to be passed more quickly.
      Formal Coronation of Augustus I takes place, and shortly thereafter former King Henry I passes away. A large funeral is held in his remembrance.
      Prince Louis Ferdinand is proclaimed the first Crown Prince and Heir Apparent.

    The American Navy sees its first deep water Atlantic victory when a squadron of American ships met a Franco-Spanish fleet sent to reinforce the West Indies. Though outnumbered, the American ship engineering allowed for the Americans to prolong the battle until the Royal Navy joined them, turning the battle into a decisive Anglo-American victory.
      After which, France abandons all efforts in the New World. This battle also cuts Napoleon’s fleet significantly, allowing for an easier British victory in Trafalgar. The threat of a French invasion of Britain is then drastically reduced, allowing the Royal Navy to assert control on the surrounding seas. America has more mixed results against Spanish ships in the Caribbean, but is able to garner a larger number ships-of-the-line, thus creating a more powerful American Navy. For his efforts, Commodore Stephen Decatur, the American commander, is promoted to Admiral and given a large amount of decoration.
      The Thirteenth Amendment is ratified on the barest possible margins, granting the right to vote and hold office to all born free men, removing the land ownership clause and extending the right to outside the white race. The stipulation is agreed upon that both parents must have been born free as well. Outrage in the southern states increases, and look to the new gains in Florida to expand the slave trade.
      The American control to the port of New Orleans, coupled with the expansion of national infrastructure, the American economy increases.
      Pro-French aggressors from Lower Canada increases in New York and Boston, causing tension between Americans and French Canadians.

Federalists reform their party position, with moderates from the Libertarians, and form the Unionist Party. Their new position is to extend the economy of America, maintain a strong military, and extend American foreign prestige. While slavery in contested within the party, and many see it as a moral evil, the main party leadership lean towards it being an economic one. Republicans become increasingly defined on their pro-slavery stance or defense of slavery as an institution as most other issues take a secondary position among the support base. Libertarians become the party of radical abolitionists, but the role of the federal government and regulations remain debated.

    1806

    With a series of political defeats, the Republicans grow more aggressive. A faction led by Nathaniel Macon begin to consolidate power in southern states, beginning talks of secession in opposition to Chancellor Elbridge Gerry's emancipation plans.
      Chancellor Gerry announces a vote on full and complete abolition of slavery by 1810, the earliest that would be allowed under the Constitution. The office of PotS has changed to Premier of the Senate, or Premier for short. Gerry’s pick for the office, William Short, plans to force the vote. King Augustus I supports the plan, and both cabinets begin proposals for after the vote. In order to secure the effort, Gerry asks John Marshall and Peter Augustus Jay to the Supreme Court, attempting to have all three branches in agreement. Both men agree, with Jay’s nomination being approved with little attention. Marshall’s approval as Chief Justice receives significant opposition.
      While the war in Europe continues, France and Spain sue for peace in the Americas. In exchange for removing occupation of South American and Caribbean colonies, allowing for commerce and government to resume, France and Spain cedes all of Louisiana and Florida to America. King Augustus I of America himself, accompanied by Crown Prince Augustus, negotiated directly with Napoleon and Charles IV of Spain, marking the first time a European monarch discussed directly to an American one. Augustus I would be later given the moniker Augustus the Conqueror.
      With the end of the War of the Third Coalition coming to an end in Europe, Britain’s attention is split between continued conflict with France and the newly ignited opposition to the American annexation of the entirety of Louisiana. King Augustus I expresses that the situation is "a concern for the American Crown, not the British one". The disagreement, along with British inadequate response to growing pro-French tensions in Lower Canada, plays a major role in the eventual refusal of America to participate in the Fourth Coalition.
      Princess Elizabeth Monroe draws criticism and minor accusations of French sympathy after naming her newly born daughter Hortensia after Hortense de Beauharnais, step-daughter of Napoleon Bonaparte. Matters are complicated further as Hotense's husband, Louis Bonaparte, is made King of Holland by Napoleon. Prince Augustus, however, uses his wife’s connection to establish a correspondence with King Louis I. This sets the groundwork for Holland joining the opposition to Napoleon.
      The states of Georgia and the Carolinas declare revolt as the abolition vote fails to be blocked in Congress. Virginia and Tennessee see many counties join them, but with their state governments controlled by Libertarians are able to keep the majority within the kingdom. The rebel militia attack military outposts, seizing weapons and munitions. King Augustus calls for military action to put down what he feels as little more than an insurrection.
      Napoleon creates the Confederation of the Rhine. King Augustus I denounces this action, and announces support for Prussian resistance. Congress voices concerns in increased involvement in European affairs.

    The federal army has engaged rebel militia on a few occasions, emerging as the clear victor in most. The Bill for the end of slavery is altered greatly in the wake of the crisis. The alteration ends the import of new slaves into the country, and ends the sale of slaves throughout the admitted states, but not the ownership of those already enslaved. Premier William Short forces the vote, taking advantage of rebel senators’ absences. The notion passes, with Chancellor Elbridge Gerry signing into law. No firm plan for the recently freed slaves had been emplaced, with many ranging from assimilation to reparation.
      Rebel militia prove to be ill effective. By the end of the year, nearly all rebel militias are defeated, either routed or captured, in the states of Virginia and Tennessee. Government officials that supported rebel efforts are forced to resign. Domestically, Gerry and Augustus I are heavily criticized for their aggressiveness towards the insurrections. Many cabinet and military officials resign out of protest, many believing the efforts were immoral or supported the rebel efforts. Abolition papers and Libertarian speakers attempt to paint the rebel leaders as fanatics gripping to what is increasingly seen as an outdated form of economy and agriculture. This sees mixed success, and many of the public view the situation as the Federal Government’s inability to govern. Rebels use Pro-French Canadians and Spanish Caribbean forces to get supplies. This fuels anti-French and Spanish sentiment among the Unionists and Libertarians.
      Prince Augustus is able to gain a report with Louis Bonaparte, now called King Louis I of Holland, as he is able to play on Louis’ desire for independence from Napoleon. While this eases tensions from opposition towards the monarchy, many Americans begin to protest engagement in European wars.

    The slave trade within America officially has an end date. However, a solution for afterwards is not yet settled, as many black Americans remain in the custody of slave merchants. The prevailing proposal is to send them en masse west to cultivate territory within the lands west of the Mississippi River. Another is the repatriation to Africa, but this is seen as too costly. With no agreed solution on the federal level, very little integration is formed throughout the states, north and south. The freed slaves become instrumental to ending the revolt against abolition. All those captured are imprisoned.
      With the expulsion of King Ferdinand VII of Spain, Prince Augustus goes to London to meet with him and Prince Frederick of Britain, along with delegates of King Charles XIII of Sweden, King Louis I of Holland, King Frederick William III of Prussia, and Emperor Francis I of Austria. The meeting is to discuss the formation of a new coalition against France and Napoleon. It is decided that Spain would support the British forces in Portugal, while the British sent a second force to Holland, supported by America, to unite with the Dutch. The Swedish would come from the north to support Prussia against the Confederation of the Rhine, while Austria would go south against Italy. It was believed so many fronts at once would spread Napoleon’s forces too thin, allowing the allies to push through. The Fifth Coalition is established.
      Prince Frederick guarantees Britain’s withdrawal of denouncement against America’s annexation of Louisiana in exchange for American support. Prince Augustus does not secure the same promise from Ferdinand VII in regards to Florida. Though Chancellor Elbridge Gerry and King Augustus I approve of the battle strategy and Congress agrees to declare war in support of the Coalition, much of the government and public opinion begin to voice exhaustion from military conflict.

This is managed by flooding the surrounding area, causing difficulty with French cavalry and artillery. Though Napoleon himself is successful in Wagram, the defeat of his marshalls in Antwerp causes a stalemate in the war. All sides sue for peace as disease begins to set in on all fronts. Louis I is seen by the Dutch people as a defender of their liberty.

Elbridge Gerry's Second Term

  • 1810


    1810

    Chancellor Elbridge Gerry begins his second term with the end of the American slave trade. Enough slaveholders in the South have fled to slow the cotton trade, as well as many essential crops. The loss of the goods has caused an economic recession throughout the country. Unsold slaves being held by traders face an uncertainty. Most are pressed into forced labor contracts, signing abusive contracts while being greatly illiterate. 
      Attacks on freed slaves rise. As they are not citizens, they are not protected by American law, and most attacks go unresolved. Even those who entered into forced labor are met with hostilities similar to that under slavery. Under pressure, the Federal Government forces relocation of freed slaves to the area far west of the Missouri River, to the edge of the Louisiana Territory. Efforts are made to move as many as possible, and the move often remains compulsory.
      The economic recession has caused issues with that of the Huron Territory. Resources have diminished in availability to the Native allies who have grown in reliance on them. A native leader named Tecumseh has become a voice of increasing self reliance of the Huron Territory. Other leaders such as Little Turtle and Blue Jacket, who once fought the Americans, have grown to argue for assimilation.
      King Augustus I is pressured to abdicate for health reasons, but refuses to do so. He argues that the kingdom at this time requires a consistent leadership. Augustus the Younger does take a more active role in the day-to-day governing, including meeting with members of congress to address the national concerns.
      In Europe, Napoleon weds the daughter of Austrian Emperor Francis I. Austria agrees to the union in an attempt to keep the alliance between France and Russia from strengthening. Napoleon's Continental System begins to break apart, with Russia and Sweden beginning to break away from it.

    A new political crisis emerges as Chancellor Elbridge Gerry dies in office. In regards to succession, congress is torn between Premier William Short of the Senate and Speaker Henry Clay of the Assembly. Premier Short eventually assumes the office, causing outcries from political opponents.
      Augustus II is officially coronated. In his Precedence Speech, he calls for economic and land reforms in order to compensate for the loss of slave labor. The speech is met with mixed reception. The Unionists applauds it as the sign of a strong monarch, the Libertarians welcome an alternative to slave labor but worry about northern industrial monopoly, and the Republicans rebuke it as continued federal overreach.
      The situation in Huron escalates as Tecumseh meets with Governor Arthur St Claire. Tecumseh demands the independence of the Huron territory, despite barely holding a majority of supporters against Little Turtle and Blue Jacket, in exchange for support against the British controlled Canadian territories. St Claire agrees to send the terms to Columbia, but warns the terms may not be agreed on.

    The legality of abolition is argued at the Supreme Court. Proponents argue that it was a legal and valid vote as stated in the Constitution, while the opposing arguments point to the economic fallout of the decision. The vote is split 3-2, with Chief Justice John Marshall casting the tie breaker, in favor of abolition. In the words of Chief Justice Marshall, "The inadequacy of preceding planning does not negate the legal questioning of the law." Unionist and Libertarian lawmakers applaud the decision, but the Republicans use it as a rally. John C. Calhoun uses it as evidence of failure of the federal government to rule.
      Chancellor William Short offers work incentives for the unemployed in the north to travel south to work fields. King Augustus II attempts to introduce European land reforms, but is stopped based on the Constitutionality of the effort, with domestic issues being under the Chancellor. The Libertarians in power prove to be stubborn, as the Secretary of the Homeland mostly ignores the suggestions. In the end, very few reforms pass, causing frustrations in all levels of American society.
      Augustus II receives the terms from Tecumseh and the Huron Territory, but sends back a counter offer. Huron would be recognized as an unincorporated American territory, with Tecumseh as the executive, his council as the legislative, and his settlement of Prophetstown as the capital. Meanwhile, Canadian leaders work to undermine American efforts in the region, and Tecumseh growing in cooperation with them as supplies are more easily acquired.
      All of these factors combined allowed for Short to lose re-election, and the Chancellery being won by Republican William H. Crawford.

William H. Crawford's Term

1814 1817

  • 1814


    1814

    William H. Crawford wins the Chancellery, riding off the back of the recession left by Elbridge Gerry and William Short subsequently. He plays himself as more of the common man's Chancellor, placating to the "hard hit" white population. He further distances his office from that of the king, and attempts to govern solely to the annoyance of Augustus II. He and the Republicans are elected in a wave of new support as the Libertarians are seen as too idealistic and the Unionists too aristocratic. He packs his cabinet with pro-slavery and anti-British politicians of the time, most are at the very least sympathetic of the pro-slavery rebellion about a decade earlier.
      While SCOTUS ruled the legislation of abolition was Constitutional, it does not make it to Constitutional amendment. In such, Crawford attempts measures to block further enforcement of it. In the meantime, he implements orders for the spread of American style serfdom and indentured servitude. Crawford extends this to not just the freed blacks, but immigrants as well, particularly from east Asia, but also the Jewish and the North Africans.
      This governing causes issues with the natives and the rising of Tecumseh. Tecumseh does not agree with the terms of treaty from the American government in regards to the Huron Territory and furthers negotiations with Canada. This is seen as turning over American territory to the British. Crawford seeks to overturn the previous treaties with the natives and push them out of the territory completely, granting the land to loyal supporters. If he can, he wants to conquer and annex all of Canada. In this measure, he pressures Northwest Territory Governor Arthur St Clair, a Unionist, out of office to replace him with William Henry Harrison, a Crawford Republican.

  • 1815


    1815

    With Harrison in position, military drills are increased, causing more tensions with the Canadians and Natives until a skirmish occurs. The event is greatly exaggerated by Harrison in order to create calls for war. However, as a declaration of war must be requested of Congress by both the Chancellor and the King, Augustus II refuses to oblige, sticking with the mentality of the Unionists. The feud creates massive riffs in the entire Federal Government. This sees as much support lost for William H. Crawford as Augustus. Seeing as Augustus does not authorize the mobilization of the regulars, Crawford uses what remains of the state militias to circumvent the King's authority.
      With a militia force, led by the previously pardoned Andrew Jackson, the natives are fought in Huron, with Tecumseh's Prophetstown being razed. Following that, a superior American militia force is completely crushed by a smaller force of Canadian regulars. The Americans are routed, and Canadian forces enter the United States.

  • 1816


    1816

    The Americans see defeat after defeat in the territory against the Canadians and Natives. Much Michigan and Wisconsin fall under Canadian occupation. This is secretly deliberate, as Augustus is attempting to show the inadequacies of state militias and the leadership of Crawford and his officers against that of his handpicked and federally trained ones. This is to diplomatically see the influence of Crawford to drop significantly and swing it towards the monarchy.
      Congress grows against Crawford, not only for his handling of the war, but for his controversial domestic policies, especially against the natives. A motion is made years into the war for the king to take executive control of the military actions. Augustus appoints Henry Dearborn as Commander, and for a time personally oversees operations. His plan is to bring conflicts to a swift and decisive end, especially as London has gotten word of the conflict.
      With a strong army of regulars, the war swings in America's favor. Tecumseh's army is crushed. The Natives are forced into the terms from the previous proposal, but this time under a governor of America's choosing. Huron is officially incorporated into the Kingdom of America. The American military have retaken territory and begin to occupy Ottawa. Augustus II calls for the immediate surrender of Canadian forces, to which they comply.

  • 1817


    1817

    Officials in Britain are made aware and land an expeditionary force to their holdings in Canada. America takes no Canadian territory, as doing so would harm relations with Britain. A treaty is signed in which both sides admit fault, America clarifies the conflict was with the Canadian officials and not Britain, and the provisional governments in Lower and Upper Canada are replaced after loss of confidence.
      William H. Crawford's term as Chancellor comes to an end as he is defeated for reelection by Rufus King and the Unionists. After years of a tumultuous relationship between the Chancellery and the Crown, the American people demand a more stable cooperation. Augustus II declines to issue Articles of Impeachment, allowing Crawford to serve the remainder of his term and calls for national unity instead. This is influenced by James Monroe.
      Andrew Jackson is executed for his part in escalation and repeated military insurrections.

    "The federation known as these United States is purposefully led by a dualist Eagle. The Chancellery to embody the ever developing will of the American people. The Crown to embody the consistent spirit of the American nation. Too often has these two been at odds, and the suffering been disproportionately laid upon the innocent citizens of this Nation.   The Throne has up to the present been thusly ruled by a foreign head. Upon this day, in the year of our Lord 1818, the Ruling House of the United States will no longer be of Hohenzollern. Lexington is the name wherest the American spirit was first borne, and thus would forever stand as such. Myself, and my descendants hereafter, so long as they reign, shall bear the name Lexington to honor such origins, and henceforth relinquish all titles and holdings within foreign nations. May the Federal Kingdom that is the United States of America maintain a sovereign from their own peoples."

      In a speech that was initially planned to call for national unity, Augustus announced the change of the Royal House to Lexington, in honor and commemoration of American history and pride. The proclamation was viewed favorably by American nationalists, particularly among the Unionist Party. While the Libertarians and Republican have positive opinions of the speech, they are more appreciative of the king's re-affirmation to the Constitution.
      Vicente Guerrero takes control of the Mexican revolutionary forces and asks America for assistance. America agrees, sending men, weapons, and ships to their aid. Augustus and King argue that a stable Mexico along the American border is beneficial.

    At the Congress of Panama, William is not impressed with the ideas presented. He elects to sign for the trade alliance, but notes Bolivar's ideas for unification are beyond realistic. William and the American delegates sign the trade agreement while refusing to commit to a united military. Instead, William offers American guarantee for the independence of the South American nations. The Americans also unintentionally give insult and stoke existing fears in predicting a King Simon.
      While on route to Rio de Janeiro, William ensures American support in Cisplatina, with the battleships in escort being sent further south as fresh reinforcements.
