Player: Javier Martinez
Rank: Baron (Rank 2)
Religion: Church of England

One of the few notable Navarrese nobles to have been successfully elected to Parliament and allowed to sit in the Commons. Is very popular back in Navarre and considered something of a local celebrity, Don Iñigo has been championing the cause of the Navarrese people.

May God bless this land and its people. May he bless this Constitution, base of the power of Navarre.”

There is great joy and shouting and people rise forward to hold the People's Prince of Navarre above them.

The Rise of the Modern Popular Dictatorship

Though nominally a Principality, and part of Albion's 'Dominion' Empire, the state of Navarre is the first example of a popular dictatorship in the normal sense. The organisation of the JNE being the well-developed method of manipulation of public opinion that helped prop up the regiment of Iñigo Arista who ruled for life. Though Navarre was retained under Albion for a long time, the successors of Prince Iñgio ruled the Principality in a like style for many years.
