Alexander Frederick (High Imperial: Alexander Fridericus) of the House of Horen, also known as Saint Alexander, was a Prince of the Empire of Man, the Duke of Furnestock, a theologian, philosopher, and the bishop of Cyrilsburg and Morsgrad. He was the firstborn son of Prince Charles, Duke of Furnestock and Aloisa Horen-Cantal. He is viewed as one of the most influential figures in the Canonist Church of his time, inspiring a long line of representative government after his formation of the first Orenian Parliament under Emperor Aurelius.

Alexander is recognised as a Saint of the Canonist Church. He is the Patron of Ponce and the Sedani. Alexander is the patron saint of lovers, Imperials, the poor, and a number of representative institutions.

The teachings of Alexander are disputed and attacked by some traditionalists, who argue that his Parliament was uncalled for, reckless, and caused unnecessary conflict within the Empire of Man which culminated in the bloody War of Two Emperors. Others, conversely, criticise it as being too cautious and elitist. Generally, he is seen as the father of current Orenian Imperial Diet, and regarded positively as a figure of humility. He famously had six wives, and seven children, including his namesake Emperor Alexander II.
