His Grace, the Duke of Steventon, Brendan Cook, is a peer in the Peerage of Westarctica. His title is derived from Steventon Island.

Career with Westarctica

The duke joined Westarctica's peerage as the Baronet of Woodwin on 26 March 2020, but quickly distinguished himself as someone who was eager to participate in Westarctica's government. He requested and was granted a coat of arms from the Baron of Abele immediately after his ennoblement as a baronet.

On 15 March 2021, nearly one year to the day after becoming a Westarctican peer, Cook was appointed to the newly-created post of Deputy Prime Minister of Westarctica. In this capacity, he assisted the Prime Minister of Westarctica with routine duties and helped mediate Westarctica's acquisition of the Kingdom of Kolios as a protectorate.

In November 2021, Cook attended Westarctica's 20th Anniversary Celebration in Charlotte, North Carolina where he was awarded the Order of the Snowflake by Grand Duke Travis in recognition of his services as Deputy Prime Minister. As part of the 20th Anniversary Honors and Appointments, Cook was elevated in title from Baronet of Woodwin to Baron of Hull Bay. At the same time, he was appointed to the post of Minister of Citizen Affairs.

Prime Minister

In late 2022, Cook announced his candidacy for the office of Prime Minister of Westarctica with James Stoshak as his Deputy Prime Minister. They were the only candidates to declare a desire to run and were unanimously elected on 20 February 2023.

On 28 August 2023, he was granted the title Duke of Steventon, named for Steventon Island. In recognition of his continued support of Westarctica's mission and goals, he was simultaneously elevated in grade to Knight Grand Commander in the Order of the Snowflake.
