Prince Roy of Sealand

A patriot, war hero, touch of the eccentric, beautiful wife, adventurous, canny in business, not afraid to try something new. Vale from this blog.

Condolences to Princess Joan and family.

Onetwothree:

Wired magazine profiled Sealand last year in a piece by Simson Garfinkle called “Welcome to Sealand, Now Bugger Off”.

• “The free world is just milliseconds away” at HavenCo’s Web site.

• Sealand claims it is the world’s tiniest sovereign state, but it usually doesn’t make the lists of the world’s smallest countries.

Sealand’s own site offers a bit more history, a few more pictures, and a faq.

• Roy Bates claimed Fort Rough’s Tower under the Law of the Sea

    Radio 4 told the story of Sealand in a fascinating programme this summer:
