His, and his sister Princess Christine Elizabeth Catherine's (B Edinburgh 1945), biological stepfather was Prince Roman 1, Count of Lubraniec Dambski (B Boryslaw 1. 7.1901, + 22.11.1967 Gliwice, in procession 1988 to Warsaw), who was a Lieutenant with Polish Forces in Edinburgh from 1940 - 1947; and their mother Catherine (B Waersegers 21.11.1913/changed to Morgan/married name Mann, + 2012 Torquay).

At this time, King Roman's mother and sister moved to England, settling at 67 Great Pulteney Street, Bath.
In 1967, King Roman emigrated by assisted passage to Melbourne Australia, where he joined the Victorian Public Works Department in accounts, learned to fly at Pipeair Flying School Moorabbin Airport, appeared four times singing with guitar on GTV 9 New Faces, was a regular on Dick Cranbourne's Radio 3DB Country and Western Show, and declined a singing contract because in 1970 he was selected as one of 33 out of 2000 applicants to become a patrol officer/kiap in Papua New Guinea.
He proceeded to the Australian School of Pacific Administration Mosman Sydney for three months training, was flown 1st Class via Darwin to Port Moresby, and underwent further training at Kwikila Camp on the Brown River. He was later awarded the Police Overseas Service Medal TPNG for his service.

In 1975 he married, and proceeded to Darwin Australia, where he served in the Attorney-General's Department and, from Northern Territory self-government in 1978, the Department of Law until 1986. During this time he was also first group leader of the Port Darwin Sea Scouts, and for six years presenter of the Filipino program on Radio 8 Top-FM. He also escorted contestants to Young Talent Time in Melbourne, and met the Team and Dannii Minogue.
As well as these, King Roman was a minister of the Secular Franciscan Order in Bristol and Darwin, a bishop of Modern Apostles and Reconciliation, and founder archbishop of the Universal Family Ministry to the poor until 2006.

He went to Brisbane in 1995, where he studied at the Queensland Screen Performance Academy, was an extra for Flipper 1996, and appeared briefly in The Phantom 1996.
He founded Filipino Club Darwin in 1990 to help orphanages and poor, and assisted asylum seekers through to the High Court of Australia. He currently has matters pending before the International Criminal Court.
He was nominated for a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1998, a Pride of Australia Medal 2006, and Australian of the Year 2009. For his charity and humanitarian activities, he was awarded Knight Grand Commander (and later Knight Grand Cross) of the Most Noble Order of Rizal in 2004, and Knight Grand Commander of the Order of St Daniel in 2006.
In 1967 King Roman had inherited the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, a realization he uncovered in 1992. In 1993 his inheritance was patented, and he created the Royal Lithuanian Order in 2004. In 2005 he crowned himself for the Kingdom of Europa, which includes Lithuania and whose capital is Vilnius/Darwin.
King Roman has written various books, including The Amazing Adventures of Professor John Hudson, and he has invented Moonship Phoenix to make Space Travel easier and more economical.
