William Castovia was the 3rd President of Zamastan, succeeding President Avi Taures following his passing. He had also served as the Minister of Defense for ten years prior to his appointment as President. He was president during the Parabocan War, which resulted in the annexation of Quetana, the Parajos Islands, and the downfall of the nation of Paraboca. Castovia was mostly a wartime president, so the remainder of his time as the Head of State was deticated to reconstruction, which many saw as slow paced and illigitamate power grabs. Ultimately, his age would be the deciding factor of the 1906 Election, where the 77 year old president lost to Elias Blanco. He passed away five years later in 1911.
Castovia was the great-grandfather of future president Cassious Castovia and the great-great-grandfather of Zacharias Castovia, kick-starting the first family dynasty in Zamastan politics, the Castovia Family.
