Creation of office

On 29 October 2017, Grand Duke Travis led the Westarctican Royal Guards across the border of the Seven Seas of Rhye and liberated Calsahara from the negligent rule of its absentee government led by King Nicholas and Grand Chancellor Arledge.

After King Nicholas was unseated from his throne, he was elevated to the position of Viceroy of Calsahara, the representative of the Crown of Westarctica in Calsahara. To help maintain good order and balance out the power of the Viceroy, the Grand Duke also appointed a military governor with the rank of Captain-General.

A major part of the Captain-General's duties include signing and stamping all grants of Manorial Rights in the Colonial Estates.

Activities of office holders

Thus far, three individuals have served in the post of Captain-General of Calsahara.

Captain-General Ciani

The first to hold the position of Captain-General of Calsahara was Rocco Ciani, a member of the Westarctican Royal Guards who participated in the liberation of Calsahara and was responsible for capturing the flag of Calsahara from Montague Square in Otisburg.

After serving in the position for one year, Ciani was honorably retired and returned to his regular rank as a Corporal.

Captain-General Schroeder

The second Captain-General of Calsahara was the Count of Dendtler, who assumed the post on 15 November 2018. He visited his territory on only one occasion, but helped to expand Montague Square and led an animal rescue in Hooverville in 2020. He was retired from the post in 2021.

Captain-General Kramer

The incumbent Captain-General is Damien Kramer, who was appointed to the post after serving as a lieutenant in the Westarctican Royal Guards. Though now holding the official office, he has yet to receive the symbolic saber which accompanies this, though it but awaits his request and presence.
