This is the story of Sealand, a micronation established on an abandoned WWII fort in international waters, seven miles off the shores of Britain!
Roy Bates, the visionary Prince of Sealand, and his 'micro Royal Family’ declared the Principality of Sealand in 1967. The founding of this country was marked by the raising of a newly designed flag, a declaration of independence, and the signing of its own constitution. Following this, Sealand issued passports to its nationals, commissioned its own stamps, and has even minted official currency.
To get the facts on this micro-nation and share the adventurous story of Sealand, I’m joined by Dylan Taylor-Lehman in this episode. Dylan is the author of the book, Sealand: The True Story of the World’s Most Stubborn Micronation and Its Eccentric Royal Family.
