He saw a chance to fulfil his destiny by proclaiming himself king of Patagonia-Araucania, composing a constitution, and asserting independence from Chile. With the aid of Kipeyan, his native Minister of War, he found support in the Patagonian natives, who had suffered under successive invaders — the Incas in the 15th century, the Spaniards in the 16th-17th century, and then the Chileans. He exploited a legend which prophecied that a white man would join them in fighting off his brother invaders. When Chile moved against him and his subjects, he promised help from France — help which never materialized. Soon the Kingdom of Patagonia-Auracania collapsed, and with it, King Orélie-Antoine I.
