** The [[KnightTemplar Templars]] were founded by Admiral Constanza Stark (Dylan's former superior). Over the centuries, her soldiers found a way to copy her consciousness into the body of a loyal follower, so each commander was, in essence, the same person. The latest ([[spoiler:and final]]) instance is named [[Creator/MichaelIronside Constantine Stark]].

** Reman I for the Reman empire, a precursor to the Septim Empire.
** Saint Alessia the Slave Queen for the First Cyrodilic Empire, precursor to the Reman empire.

in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''. Tamriel, after he and his 500 companions traveled to Skyrim from Atmora. They slaughtered the [[ScrewYouElves native Falmer]] and expanded into High Rock and Morrowind at the height of the empire.

Lord Indoril Nerevar is treated as this by the Dunmer people as the great unificator of Morrowind. The [[PhysicalGod Tribunal]] rule in his name (even though [[TheRashomon they very likely may be]] responsible for his death) and he is revered as a saint in the Tribunal Temple. (His prophesied {{Reincarnation}} is a major plot point in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''. The Tribunal rule in his name, though they may in fact have secretly killed him, depending on whose history you believe. Still, Nerevar is credited as Morrowind]]''.)
** St. Alessia, the "Slave Queen," led a human uprising against their Ayleid elf masters and created the Alessian Empire,
the first King, founder empire of men out of Cyrodiil.
** Reman I Cyrodiil founded the Reman empire, the second great empire of men out of Cyrodiil. (There is some debate as to whether the province was named after him, or if he took the name of the province.) He was
the first council, to be recognized as a "Dragonborn" emperor and unificator of Morrowind.
** And long before
his empire conquered most of these guys -- Ysgramor, for conquering Tamriel, failing only to conquer the Elves Dunmer (protected by their {{Physical God}}s) and establishing the Altmer (protected by their power magics), though he did get the Altmer to join his empire peacefully by offering a treaty with exceptionally favorable terms to the Altmer.

the first kingdom to conquer all of Men in Tamriel; ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''.Tamriel. He [[DeityOFHumanOrigin ascended]] to [[GodEmperor godhood]] after his death, becoming [[GodOfWar Talos]], the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Ninth Divine]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Ravenmark}}'', the [[TheEmpire Empire of Estellion]] was founded by a priest named Phaestus, who objected to the feudal and corrupt Kingdom of Carsis's hereditary stratification, preaching meritocracy. Phaestus and Feronia, a peasant girl with powerful wind magic, lead a rebellion against the Carsis nobles and exile them to the impassable Cardani swamps. Phaestus then becomes the first ruler of the new Empire, henceforth known as Emperor Phaestus Corvius, with Feronia as his Empress. Meritocracy continues to be the Empire's core belief, and any commoner can earn life peerage (called Ravenhood) for him/herself and his/her children (but not grandchildren) through decades of loyal service (either military or administrative). Any family that manages to retain Ravenhood for 10 unbroken generations (very rare) becomes a noble House.

In the sequel, Usun Motare, the first game's [[TheDragon Dragon]] becomes the first leader of a new nation called the Varishah Federation. His people see him as a symbol of resistance to the Empire, having been previously subjugated by it.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': 300 years before the series, Aegon I Targaryen and his sister-wives conquered and unified six of the Seven Kingdoms with the aid of dragons. Accepting and rewarding all who surrendered, they founded King's Landing and the Kingsguard, forged the Iron Throne, and are fondly remembered for the most part. Aegon's Landing even marks a YearZero in the chronology of Westeros.

* In ''Literature/{{Magic 2.0}}'', Brit is the builder of {{Atlantis}}. However, since all time travelers are, effectively, immortal, Brit is still present as one of the rulers of the city. Two of them, in fact. To distinguish them, they are called Brit the Elder and Brit the Younger, and neither of them [[IHatePastMe likes]] [[FutureMeScaresMe the other]]. In fact, from Brit the Younger's viewpoint, she hasn't built Atlantis yet. She is destined to do that in several decades by going back into the past, becoming Brit the Elder.

* ''Webcomic/KnightsOfBuenaVista'' is a CampaignComic covering ''{{Disney/Frozen}}''. Although that movie doesn't state how old Arendelle is, in [[http://elsaletyoufinish.tumblr.com/post/87419793983/kobv-frozen-0001 the first strip of the comic]] it's made clear that Mary and Adriana founded the kingdom with their {{player character}}s. After they die in a TotalPartyKill, those two play their characters' daughters, Elsa and Anna.

* Not a country, but Jebediah Springfield of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''? It's not a nation, but he fills the same kind of concept (heroic figure, founder of the place).
** Cousin-marrying Shelbyville Manhattan for Springfield's rival city (Shelbyville… not Manhattan).
* Dale Dimm, founder of Dimmsdale from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents''. Though many townspeople believed he was a myth, until Timmy went back through time and met him in-person.
