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.


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
