Jan Karol II (Szymon Teodor Jan Karol z Gliński-Tudomir; 9 September 1937 – 9 May 2018) was Cesarz i Autokrata of the Miersan Commonwealth from 11 June 1971 until his death on 9 May 2018.

Jan Karol ascended to the throne on 11 June 1971 following the death of his mother, Cesarzowa Aleksandra I. Born the first son of Aleksandra and Prince Bogumir in 1937, Jan had acted as heir apparent since his birth, and as Crown Prince since his adult baptism in 1953. Karol married Newreyan Princess Anne-Mary in 1960, and had five children with her. His eldest, Crown Prince Michał, acted as heir apparent until his death.

As Cesarz i Autokrata, Jan Karol acted as the official head of state and government of Miersa and commander-in-chief of it's armed forces. He maintained a strong working relationship with Sylwester Hugo Wrzesiński, the Cześnik for the latter half of his realm, and his first son Crown Prince Michał. Jan Karol also focused on improved relations with the western world; and was been seen as a westernizer and pro-western monarch for the majority of his reign. Jan Karol died in a plane crash on 9 May 2018, along with his son then-Crown Prince Michał. He was succeeded by his second son, Jaromir II.
