Jan Van Draak was born in Grijzestad into an influential family descended from King Marten I, though his grandfather took his mother's "Van Draak" surname. Van Draak served in the Royal Guard and was later involved in the Koningstad political sphere, working with the local government.
In 1852, Alexander von Krupski resigned as president. He, King Cristian I and other politicians had instituted reforms to make appointed officials limited to 6-year terms. Jan, who was a more centrist figure, founded the Liberal Party that year. In power, he failed to achieve much except pass through constitutional reform. He did however, promulgate the first national census in 1855. In 1858 he would not be re-appointed.
