Karl Friedrich Ochsenbein (29 August 1882 - 7 October 1953) was a Besmenian politician. He rose to power as the supreme king of the Ochsenbein State. During his dictatorship from 1921 to 1948, he abolished the office of head of government and took over himself. Ochsenbein banned all political parties (except the Besmenian National Union) in the country and closed the border to East Besmenia. Many people died under his leadership, especially political opponents and border refugees.

Early Years


Karl Ochsenbein was born on 29 August 1882 in Waldtket, Sedakanien. He was the second of four children born to Albert Ochsenbein (1839-1898) and his wife, Ursula Ochsenbein (1843-1910). Whereby Gustav, the fourth child, died at the age of 2. The family lived on a farm and where poor. His father was a racist and nationalist and brought up Karl and his siblings in this way.

Early Adulthood

In 1901 Ochsenbein left Waldtket to live in Helmfurt. He began training as a carpenter in Helmfurt. After 2 years, he lost his job and became homeless. Ochenbein was homeless until 1903. From 1903 until he entered the war in 1910, he worked as a writer for the right-wing newspaper The Besmenian Worker. After his service in the war he joined the National Besmenian Union and became in 1916 their leader.

Soldier in the Civil War

Between November 1911 and February 1913, Ochsenbein fought on the side of the Royal Army.

Dictator of West Besmenia

After the Civil War, the Heraldstein Dynasty, which had been the royal family since 1831, had lost its importance. After King Willhelm von Heraldstein's resignation in July 1920, the parliament announced Royal Elections for January 1921. It was the first time that the king was chosen by the people. Ochsenbein was appointed by the BNU as a candidate for the election.

End of his leadership

Escape to Thraysia

After the fall of the Ochsenbein regime on June 7, 1948, Karl and his wife Erna fled to the Thraysian Embassy in Melmingen, where the couple were offered protection. The Thraysian government offered the couple asylum the next day, because of the friendly relationship between West Besmenia and Thraysia. The couple moved in June 1948 to a small rural village where they lived on a farm. The two were under special protection of the Thraysian government. On December 5, 1950, Karl's wife Erna died as a result of a plain-sized brain tumor.

On the night of 12-13. January 1953, Ochsenbein was kidnapped to Vardana by a group of anti-fascists who worked for the Besmenian Federal Intelligence Agency, where he was brought back to Besmenia.
