Baron of Bastanchury is a courtesy title held by the ruler of the Barony of Bastanchury.

It was originally a subordinate title held by Grand Duke Travis when he was King of Calsahara, however, he granted the title as a courtesy to Westarctica's new Minister of Information in March 2018 to recognize the latter's previous support of Calsahara.

It is one of only two peerage titles in the Nobility of Calsahara that is not held by Grand Duke Travis.


The Baron has been an extremely active member of the Royal Council and was responsible for designing Westarctica's first paper currency, the Ice mark. His Lordship was appointed to the position of Commissioner of the Treasury with responsibility for managing the Central Bank of Westarctica on behalf of the Crown, and Captain-General of Calsahara.

His Lordship served as Minister of Information for just over a year from 2018 - 2019, when he was transferred to the post of Minister of Commerce to oversee Westarctica's retail product offerings.

Knight of the Snowflake

On 15 July 2018, at the fourth annual Royal Polo Match, His Lordship was invested as a Knight Commander in the Order of the Snowflake in recognition of his work creating and maintaining Encyclopedia Westarctica.
