In recognition of his services to the nation, he was elevated to Knight Grand Commander in the Order of the Snowflake. Additionally, in 2022, he was granted the title Baron of Brandenburg in the Nobility of Calsahara and Baron von Braubar in the Nobility of Kolios.

In his role as Deputy Prime Minister of Westarctica, His Grace attended MicroCon 2023 and participated in the Nemean Games, an intermicronational sporting competition where he dominated the seniors' division. He was awarded a knighthood in the Order of the Orca during the first night of the conference in recognition of his body of service to Westarctica and his continued devotion to the nation's mission.

In November 2023, he was elevated in rank from count to duke in recognition of his many contributions to Westarctica as well as single-handedly funding the Westarctica Conservation Scholarship for the year 2023.
