Greetings from Darwin Australia, interim capital with Vilnius of the Imperial Kingdom/ Empire of Europa, which includes the Kingdom of Lithuania (Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine), of which His Imperial Majesty KING ROMAN initially inherited Sovereignty as Grand Duke on 22 November 1967.
Despite the usurpation, however, by International Law His Imperial Majesty King Roman remains LEGAL/RIGHTFUL/DE JURE Sovereign, despite temporary elected de facto governments.
Unlike other forms of government, Monarchy engenders national pride * stability * continuity (as for example the dutiful Queen Elizabeth 2, Britain's longest reigning and most respected Monarch)
History and Lineage
In 1992, one year after the Baltic states finally became independent of the Soviet Union, His Imperial Majesty KING ROMAN (then still Prince Ronald), visited his stepmother Princess Paulina Dambska in Bielsko-Biala in southeast Poland, and was taken to his biological father's tomb (see photo below) near marker 299B at Brama 4 Warsaw.
The princely Dynasty of Gedroyc (arms Rose over Hippocentaur) originated in the 13th century, and according to an historian married into the family of King Mindaugas, Lithuania's first king. The Gedroyc princely line continued from 1569 as Grand Duke (properly Grand Prince) of Lithuania, and was, amongst others, patented in 1811 at Vilnius and St Petersburg, and in 1873 at St Petersburg, during the Russian hegemony.
Prince Wladislaw Ignacy Marek Gedroyc (Grand Duke) and Margueritte Renee, Marquise de Pourbaix, married civilly at Lwow in 1904. His Majesty KING ROMAN's stepmother Princess Paulina was born to them in 1905, and civilly married his father Count Roman Emil Dambski of Lubraniec (arms Triple-branched Tree, from 1094) in 1927.
Paulina was officially declared missing from 1940-1947, during which period Prince Roman 1 sired His Royal Highness Prince Ronald (now His Imperial Majesty KING ROMAN) in 1942, and in 1945 Ronald's sister Princess Christine (widow, now retired in Torquay England from Bath), both to Katherine Mann of Edinburgh.
His Majesty KING ROMAN has resided in Darwin since 31 October 1975, after the city was devastated by Cyclone Tracy on Christmas Day 1974. There his Letters Patent 1993 as His Royal Highness, The Grand Duke of Lithuania, were prepared by Alan Earl of Dalvey.
In 1994 at Vilnius, the newly founded Royal Society of Lithuanian Nobility (LBKS), 400 strong, elected Prince Roman a founding senator and voted for restoration of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. However, the wishes of the original LBKS were subsequently ignored by the already established usurper Republic from 1991, and the newly elected LBKS of 1996 (with 200 members) continued the charade.
His Majesty KING ROMAN is a citizen of the United Kingdom and the European Union, a citizen of Australia since 1976. Whatever happens with Brexit, His Majesty KING ROMAN also remains Sovereign Monarch of the Empire of Europa and the Kingdom of Lithuania.
