Sir Alexander Kohleschmied joined the Swiss in May of 1751. Upon displaying his affection for land combat and training with Lord Bailey Kroshbon, and following his admittance to the Privy Council, he was named Bailey's right-hand man and Director of War. He served as Director of War under Bailey's instruction for a little over a month.

Upon Prime Minister Lord Azreel Wolfe's sudden departure from the Swiss, and following Lord Bailey Kroshbon's appointment to Prime Minister via election, he was elevated to Minister of Defense by Bailey, succeeding him. Following his appointment, he selected Sir Will Kohleschmied as his right-hand man and Director of War. He served as Minister of Defense for roughly two and a half months, striving to revamp the military.

During his time as Minister of Defense, he was named Co-Guildmaster alongside Princess Rose Kroshbon to aid with in-game managerial affairs. He also betrothed himself to Lady Elizabeth Kohleschmied (at the time Lady Li Merian) on 21 September 1751. Lady Elizabeth Kohleschmied remains his wife to date.

Following Princess Rose Kroshbon's departure, he assumed her previous position as Minister of State, which he held from October to December of 1751. Due to his loyalty in the eyes of the King, he was granted the title of Chief Advisor, succeeding Princess Rose and serving on his Majesty's advisory cabinet, alongside Vice Advisor Lord Benjamin Wolfe for the remainder of the year.

In the absence of Lord Bailey Kroshbon, he assumed a large amount of the Prime Minister's duties, serving as a "de facto" Prime Minister. During Princess Rose Kroshbon's time with the guild, Sir Alexander served officially as the fourth-in-command, vassal only to the Prime Minister, the Crown Princess, and the King above him. Due to Bailey's absence and Rose's departure from the Swiss, he was elevated to, and served as, second-in-command of the guild from October to December of 1751.

Following the Fourth Annual Prime Minister Election - 1752 [1], Sir Alexander felt, and continues to feel, a sense of uncertainty about the welfare of the Swiss nation. Bested by Lord Benjamin Wolfe in the election, he took his defeat as an opportunity to return to Venice and acknowledge all of his achievements during his time in the Cabinet of Lord Bailey Kroshbon in 1751. Appreciated primarily by his fellow Privy Council members, Sir Alexander's contributions will live through the spirits of those who loyally followed him and respected his able leadership. He served many different positions across a vast majority of the Swiss government and acquired a lot of wisdom during his time in office. He now resides in Venice, serving as the acting head of House of Kohleschmied.

His biggest contribution to the nation was his involvement in the Swiss-Ottoman protectorate. Discussing with Sultan Iksender Osman about his future plans for his nation, he was able to convince Iksender to retain his nation, and further negotiations resulted in Switzerland becoming the Ottoman Empire's protectorate. This was a significant political advance for the Swiss.
