Early life and military careerEdit
Donner was born in Koningstad to W.A. Donner (1888-1951) and Alice Simpson (1895-1923). Donner joined the Royal Guard in 1940 and during the German Invasion of Brunant formed part of the defense of the nation. He would later join the Underground Revolution and continued the fight against the Nazis. Donner later participated in the Liberation of Brunant alongside American troops. He would later be awarded the Defense of Brunant Medal (1946), the 1945 War Medal and Resistance Cross (1947) and the Order of Merit (1948).
Donner, being hailed a war hero decided to run for Congress; from 1949 to 1965 he served as a senator and from 1965-1983 was elected the representative for Cape Cross Parish. In 1984 he was elected president, a post which he held until 1990.
Donner was a fairly popular president, but saw declining popularity in the late 1980s. The recession in 1990 saw him lose more support, despite not having influence over the economy. He ran as an independent candidate in the 1990 Presidential Elections.
