Filipe Machado Al Fradiq also known as Ahmed Barakzi among micronationalist from Brazil, was the ninth Sultan of Harram and serves as the Emir of Takia. He acted previously as the Crown Prince of Badakistan in 2015, when he became Grand Vizier of the Empire. He also was Minister-President of Bessabia until its dissolution on 7 October 2015. Emir Hassan is a keyperson in Orientalism within Brazilian micronationalism.
Life and Micronationalism
Filipe Machado was born on 11 February 1988, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, younger son of José Abdallah and Cláudia Catherine. He have two older brothers, Franklin and Flávia Al Fradiq. He attend UNIGRANRIO, graduating in 2012, with a Bachelor's degree in Accounting Sciences and post-graduated in 2014. He is a Muslim and always developed a great interest for Politics, being introduced to micronationalism in late 2013 through the citizenship request to Badakistan.
Their blameless deportment and interest led him to prestigious positions in Badakistan, during the reign of Jaffar Shah, the first Emperor of Badakhshan. After political differences over government administration, Filipe Machado left the micronation and founded the State of Bessabia with the support of King Oscar of Ruthenia. The situation would change when Jaffar Shah named the King of the Ruthenians as his successor.
Machado, as a close friend of Oscar of Ruthenia and knowledgeable of the affairs of Badakistan, was soon returned to the Head of Government by the new Emperor. On that occasion, he promoted the revision of the Constitution and an absolute government reform, being named Crown Prince in the same period. On 19 November 2015, during the celebration events of the first anniversary of the Kingdom of Ruthenia, it was nominated as one of the first seven "Aide-de-Camp of His Majesty."
After the events that led to the end of the Badakistani Monarchy, he became a citizen of the United Provinces of Mauricia and assumes no political role until the restauration of the Emirate of Takia in 2016, title he hold until 8 August 2021, when he became Sultan of Harram, with support of Ebenthal and Karnia-Ruthenia.
