The Duchy of Nelson
Duke George Nelson has recently purchased 5 acres of land in the state of Texas. Duke Nelson
has already implemented a police force with constables and a sherriff. He also has recently appointed a judge.
With the this new purchase we have decided to make this land the Duchy of Nelson.
Royal Council changes Royal title.
It has been brought forth by the Majority of the Royal Council that Prince Christophers Royal title be changed to that
of His Royal Majesty. This was brought about because the Prince's role in Vikesland is more that of a king than a traditional
Prince who is heir to a throne or is subordinate to a king or Queen. The title of the Princess will be changed accordingly
New documentary in development
Prince Christopher I has by trade worked in Television and film for 12 years. When looking for a subject for a new film
project and searching the internet he came across the Micronationalism movement. This intrigued him and was taken aback at
how little people new about it including himself. He then started to research this phenomenon and found some of it quite fascinating,
especially how some countries like Tibet and Palestine are not officially recognized as countries. Equally interesting
is how little states like Monaco and Lichtenstein are recognized. The research then led him to other areas of micro-nationalism
such as the legally grey nations like Sealand, Hutt River province and the claims on Antarctica.
So The Prince then started on his own Journey and decided that a documentary on this subject is needed. So Prince Christopher
Created the Principality of Vikesland as a real nation project to coincide with the making of this documentary. Shooting
of this documentary will start in July 2006.
