About Leonardo II

Leonardo (Leonardo Giovanni Diego Grimaldi, born 20th December 1987) is the constitutional Monarch of eleven sovereign states that make up the Commonwealth of Gyflada, they include; Edom, Rabelliad, Hayle, Shabti, Marlborough, Triabunna, Beaumont, the Isle of Mann, Cranford, Apulia and Naples. Leonardo was born in Venta Silurum, the nation's capital, and was educated at The Royal Boys Academy, a private school for boys from the age of 3-18 years. Leonardo's father chose a course of English Literature, French, Mathematics, Science, Latin, Politics, Physical Education and History. When Leonardo left The Academy, he attended the The Royal University, where he studied the history of literature.

After attending university for three years, he enrolled into His Majesty's Navy, becoming a midshipman after two years. From here Leonardo went onto the Military Command School, which allowed him to be further elevated to the position of Capitan. When Lucca ascended to the Throne, he appointed Leonardo to the rank of Commodore-in-Chief of the Surface Fleet, and promoted him to the rank of Admiral.

Leonardo is the patron of 623 charities and founded The Prince's Award in 2009. The Prince's Award was founded to provide a balanced programme of activities that develops the whole person – mind, body and soul – in an environment of social interaction and team working. Young people progress through three levels of The Prince's Award programme to achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. Taking part builds confidence and develops self-esteem. It requires persistence, commitment and has a lasting impact on the attitudes and outlook of all young people who do their Prince's Award.

Leonardo became engaged to marry Princess Alexia of The Empire of Romakov on 2 January 2015. A few hours prior to the ceremony, Leonardo's new titles of Duke of Fenzi and Baron St Isili were announced, as is customary for princes on the occasion of their weddings. After six months of being married, Lucca appointed Leonardo as a Counselor of State and a Personal Aide-de-Camp to His Majesty The King.

On 19 August 2015, Alexia was admitted to the Royal Infirmary. Later that day, she gave birth to a baby boy and girl—Prince Nico of Fenzi and Princess Emmiliana of Fenzi—with Prince Leonardo present.

On 22 November 2015, His Majesty King Lucca announced that he was abdicating from the throne due to health problems. As these problems would have a toll on both his husband and young children, Lucca passed the throne onto Leonardo, making him King.

Leonardo can speak French and Spanish, and is currently said to be learning Danish.
