Jan Jaromír is a Serbian/Czech in the Interactive AAR A Federation of Equals.


Early Years

Born in Nitra, then part of the Hungarian section of the Habsburg monarchy, his father was a proud Czech man, having fought in the military as a soldier, and his mother was a proud Serbian, who was a big supporter of Vuk Karadžić's reforms of the Serbian language. His grandfather (his mother's father) fought against the Ottoman, making sure that the spirit of the Serbs does not disappear in the slightest. He did, however, escape during the Second Serbian Uprising of 1815-17. Being named after Czech reformer, Jan Hus, Jaromír moved throughout his childhood, living in Bohemia, Slovakia and Vojvodina. His father retired in 1840, now training would-be soldiers of the country.</p>

The Danubian Revolution

When he was 23, he participated during the revolution together with his parents and his grandfather. His grandfather died by the hands of the Habsburg military, while peacefully supporting the revolutinaries. After the revolution was won, Jaromír and his parents moved to Vojvodina, where they peacefully lived, while Jaromír got a interest for politics.

Becoming a politician

Jaromír, then 32 years old, during the coup of 1856-57, managed to become the Deputy of Croatia and, unofficially, the Deputy of Vojvodina. He was a proud liberal, supporting the Pan-Danubian Party (now Federal Democratic Party). He used to have aims of splitting Vojvodina from the state of Croatia, but those ideas fell through and he figured that the state supported the very thing he supports, Pan-Slavism. During the coup of 1863, he got a major headache, not allowing him to accompany his fellow politicians.

War of Egyptian Submission

In 1864, before the war had happened, the unification of Carniola and Croatia brought to the creation of

Jan Jaromír as Junior Lieutenant, 1865

Illyria, which Jaromír supported, leading to him unofficially becoming a Deputy of Illyria. When the war happened, he proclaimed that "he would be damned if he allowed the troops of the Ottoman to enter the land of the Federation". He then left the Hofburg to join the army as a soldier, carrying his sword with him. Around the end of January in 1865, being part of the 1st Southern Army (now merged with the 2nd Southern Army into the 1st Army), the war plan was revealed, showing that the unit he is in was going to join the assault on Western Serbia. He was also promoted to the status of Junior (2nd) Lieutenant in the regiment he is in by the then Chief of General Staff, Artur Georgescu. In 1866, victory was at hand in the war as the Congress of Berlin was going to happen. He was called, by the then-President Gabriel Soukup-Valenta, to accompany him together with Wolfram Liberalen, Artur Georgescu and Paolo Arpaio to the Congress. Jaromír accepted. After spending a few weeks in Berlin, he, together with Liberalen, signed the treaty on behalf of the Federation as one of the two required signatories.


After the Congress was finished, Jaromír, together with the rest, to the Hofburg. He became a Deputy once more and ran for the position of Governor of Vojvodina, which he won unopposed. In 1868, around the time of the Presidential Election, Jaromír was against Charles Jakopin's attempt in re-establishing the Carniolan state. Due to Jakopin being the only prominent Slovene politician in Illyria, Jaromír believed that he was "putting words in the mouths of the Slovene people". Despite this, Slovenian statehood was accepted. When war broke out the same year, Jaromír, like others, were mad over Romania annexing Wallachia, even though they weren't allowed to do so. Under the Second Spiros Administration, Jaromír held the position of Minister of the Interior.

The Lilician Government

In 1884, during the Lilic controversy, he, together with his fiancee, went on vacation in Greece, as he deserved some rest. They then returned to Novi Sad, where Jaromír caught up with the events happening in the Federation. After arriving in Zagreb, witnessing riots, he, together with the other Governors, temporarily moved the Illyrian capital to Split. When Lukáš Banik declared his own government, together with the rest of the FDP, he was a major supporter of it. He was named the 1st Minister of Commerce under his administration. However, before anything could be done, Lilic died, being crushed by the ruins of the Hofburg. This made Francesco de Palma the President. However, due to the ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court, elections were held within three months. Through this election, Lukáš Banik was elected President and appointed Jaromír as the 2nd Minister of Commerce.

  • Jaromír owns a sword that was used during the Battle of Kosovo, confirmed to have killed around 200 Ottoman soldiers. He was given the sword by his grandfather during his 21th birthday, after he was taught how to properly use it. Ever since he has shown the sword at the Hofburg, he has gotten it to a blacksmith, where the old, rusty sword was polished, and the blood on it was cleaned. The sword was tempered, to give the areas that used to have blood on them a shade of red.
