Aetios Spiros was the Socialist Prime Minister of Crete, Councillor for Crete, Minister of War, President of the Danubian Federation, and Minister of Justice in A Federation of Equals


Aetios Spiros was born to a wealthy Greek, Aristocratic family living in Crete. Aetios was the third child in a series of four, with two older brothers, and a younger sister. Like his older brothers, Aetios was raised to be a soldier, but soon after his 18th birthday, Aetios decided that he did not want to be a soldier, and instead attempted to pursue a career in politics. This, compounded with Aetios leftist views, which is father did not share, led to Aetios being disowned by the Spiros family. Despite this, Aetios continued to pursue a political career, and rose in the ranks of the Leftist parties of Crete. After Aetios' oldest brother died in the Civil War on the side of the Monarchists, Aetios' sister convinced their father to let Aetios back into the family. Aetios then used the family money to fund his campaigns, landing him as a Councillor, Prime Minister of Crete, and recently as Minister of Justice for the entire Federation. After the 1864 presidential election, Aetios was able to get himself appointed to Minister of War. Overwhelmed by his new work load, he resigned as Prime Minister of Crete. Aetios first test as Minister of War would come with the Egyptian War of Submission. Spiros would take the lead in running the war, eventually bringing victory to the Federation. He continued to be Minister of War when President Liberalin took office, but played only a minor role in the War with Russia. Around this time he dissolved the Social Democratic Party, and returned to the Radical Union. He then preceded to defeat Liberalin in the Radical Union primary, and was subsequently elected President of the Danubian Federation, running all but unopposed, and formed a Unity Government with Jovan Lilic. Accomplishments of his first term included overseeing the Constitutional Convention, successfully negotiating an end to the Venetian Crisis, paying off the Federal Debt, and modernizing the military.
