Alexander I Kremvera was a Bohemian General and Statesmen within the Danubian Federation, widely remembered for being the leader of the Royalist opposition during the Danubian Civil War, where he was crowned His Imperial Majesty, by the Grace of God, and Will of the People, Alexander Kremvera, Emperor of the Danube, General of the Army of the North, Chief of the General Staff etc. Despite being one of the greatest military strategists of the time, he was unable to correctly hold together his cause, and despite winning countless victories, he lost hope in his cause as the war grinded to a halt, finally resulting in suicide and the conclusion of the Civil War.

Alexander Kremvera was born on the twenty-fourth of June, 1817, in a rural home several miles south of Vienna. The son of a middle-class Bohemian farmer (who had moved to Austria), Alexander lived his early life with moderate wealth, intending to educate himself abroad. By 1837, Alexander was attending a university in Hamburg, becoming an educated young scholar by the age of 21. He returned to Austria the following year, joining the military in 1840 as a regular. By 1848, Alexander had become a seasoned veteran, beginning to become skeptical of the harsh Austrian Imperialists. When the revolution broke out in the same year, he immediately defected to the revolutionaries as a liberal, joining local militias on raids around royalist strongholds.
He rejoined the military the following year, this time as a artillery officer in the Republican National Guard. By 1851, he was leading a small battery of artillery units, covering the left flank of the force. During the Battle of Bielsko, Alexander was impaled by a Russian Sabre on his left shoulder, falling onto a pile of wounded left behind. He was eventually discovered, and nurtured back to health by a old Jewish family, returning to the front by mid-1852. He was promoted to the command of a infantry brigade, briefly participating during the final major battle at Przemysl.
Alexander remained neutral during the coup of 1854, preferring instead to focus on the war against the Turks. After numerous successes on the battlefield in the Balkans, Alexander became an attendant of several Generals, before finally becoming recognized for a military position.
