Alexander Hamilton I (January 11, 1757- April 14, 1827) was an American General, politician, and major figure in the founding the Union of Royal American States. A promoter of industrialization and centralization, Hamilton originated the idea of an American monarchy, and was the main writer of the URAS Constitution. 

A veteran of the Great Revolution, Hamilton was a personal friend of King Andrew I and served as his Foreign Minister during the transitional period from Republic to monarchy. Afterwords, Hamilton served as a Minister of Congress, the Lord Secretary of the Treasury, and the Ambassador to Great Britain during the October Revolution and succeeding Commonwealth. His son and heir, Alexander Hamilton II, attempted to follow in his father's footsteps, but he was murdered in 1810; for the rest of his life, Hamilton believed that his political enemies had assassinated his son.
