Augustus I (Augustus Ferdinand; May 23, 1730 – May 2, 1813) was the King of the United States following his brother's death in 1802 to his death in 1813. While King, the Franco-American War erupted between the U.S. and Napoleonic France following major disputes over French territory in North America.
During the war, Augustus was a prominent military commander and won multiple battles due to his military prowess, most notably the battles of Kaskaskia and the Mississippi, which both resulted in decisive military victories for the Americans. After the war ended in 1808 with the Treaty of Baltimore, Augustus primarily focused on completely re-building the American Army along with Secretary of War Henry Dearborn. However, before he could put his plans to work, he died in 1813 at the age of 82. Due to his multiple military achievements, he is popularly known as "Augustus Caesar" after the Roman Emperor Augustus.
