The Clan Brum or Brum Dynasty (Portuguese: Clã Brum or Dinastia Brum) is a relevant royal houses of lusophone micronationalism active in no less than five micronations. Members of the Portuguese nobility, the house founded the Kingdom of Roschfallen, reigning from 2014 to 2019, and the Sovietian Empire, reigning from 2020 since. The clan main micronational activity, though, concentrates on the Kingdom of Ebenthal which the throne is occupied by them since 2019 on the figure of King Arthur II, who also reigns as Emperor of Sovietia and previously reigned as King of Roschfallen. The house also produced a Sealandic Count and Baron, a Harranian Duke, aMansean Marquis, Prince Imperial of Schneeblutig (who served as that country's regent), and more recentely it joined the nobility of Karnia-Ruthenia as Princes of Engern-Tonna.

The Clan Brum has it's origins in the Low Countries and, through matrilineal line, it considers itself a cadet branch of the Scottish Clan Drummond, which is related to the Scottish Royal House of Stuart. The currently head of the clan is Armando, Baron of Roches, father of the King of Ebenthal and Emperor of Sovietia.

Etimology

The name Brum is a Portuguese derivation of the original Dutch surname Bruyn, itself a derivation of the Dutch word Bruin, translated to brown; the family name came due to their brown hair. Originally members of the family were called Van Der Bruyn (de Brum; of Brown), but as they settled in different places (mainly Portugal and Great Britain) the name took the form of a series of language variations.

History

The Clan Brum has it's origins in the Duchy of Brabant, a state of the Holy Roman Empire at the Burgundian Netherlands, where the aristocrat Anton Van Der Bruyn, the first known to bear the name, was born in 1460. Little is known of his own origins, but some sources appoint that his family came from the County of Flandres, as the archives of the town of Schouteet mention a Gillis Van Der Bruyn, an artisan from Bruges in 1479. Anton married to Margot Sabuya, of the House of Savoy. Their son, Wilhelm Van Der Bruyn (1493?-1553), moved to the Portuguese archipelago of Azores at the first decade of the 16th century (or around 1480), becoming a sugar trader. There he met Violante Vaz de Ferreira Pimentel (born in 1495), either great-granddaughter or great-great-granddaughter of Sir John Drummond V (1400-1465), of the Clan Drummond of Scotland, son of Sir John Drummond of Stobhall, 12th Thane of Lennox (1356-1428) which was brother of Annabella Drummond, Queen consort of the Scots (as wife of King Robert III of the Scots), nephew to Maragret Drummond, Queen consort of the Scots and uncle to King James I of the Scots. In the Azores Wilhelm and Violante fathered four children: António, Cosme, Catarina and Caspar, of which António married the Dutch aristocrat Lady Barbara van Aetrycke, daughter of the aristocrat Joss van Aard and granddaughter of Willem van der Haegen. António's offspring came to colonize both the Azores and the Madeira. Simão de Roches da Cunha Brum, a direct descendant of António, was made Baron of Roches by King Luís I of Portugal in 1871, a title later confirmed for his family in 1901. In 1899 they immigrated to Brazil, where they settled in Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro.

Micronational history

In 2014, Arthur, son of Armando, the 5th titular Baron of Roches, founded the Kingdom of Roschfallen, an independent micronation of which he was King. He ennobled all his immediate family as Princes of Roschfallen, granting his father the special treatment as Serene Highness while his older sister and heir, Élida Brum, was granted the title of Princess of Iriland.

In 2017, watching the dormant Schneeblutigan Empire, while King of Roschfallen, Arthur decided to claim that country's government, but instead of proclaim himself as Emperor, he chose to establish himself as a regent and claimed the title of Prince Imperial, with the treatment of Imperial Highness, while awaiting for the rightful Schneeblutigan monarch to take the throne.

Caught in a political crisis, Arthur abdicated the Roschfallenian throne in 29 December 2019 as soon as he was invited by Raphael Sousa, Regent of the Kingdom of Ebenthal, to assume that throne. Along with his title, Arthur relinquished all of his familie's Roschfallenian royal titles plus his title as Prince Imperial of Schneeblutig (although there have been no officiality for the latter). Assuming the Ebenthali throne as High King (later simply King), his sister Élida was declared heir under the title of Princess of Belmonte with the treatment of illustrious highness, while all of his immediate family were made Princes of Ebenthal.

On his birthday in 2020, the now King Arthur II was gifted the title of Count of Sealand, while in April that year he relinquished his title of Marquis of the Water Valleys, granted to him by Queen Marina I of the Manso. In July he became Emperor of the Sovietian Workers upon founding the Sovietian Empire and in August he was made Prince of Engern-Tonna in Karnia-Ruthenia, with hereditary rights, thus making of the Clan Brum a higher noble house in Karno-Ruthenian peerage.[1]

Armorial

The Clan Brum's coat of arms consists in a white field with a red stripe charged with three golden fleurs-de-lis; above the stripe, three golden partridges; over the shield a helmet, representing the family status as fidalgos of the Portuguese Royal House, with the Portuguese baronial coronet representing the familie's two Portuguese titles of Baron of Alagoa, granted in 1841 by the Queen Maria II and Baron of Roches, grantes in 1871 by King Luís I and later confirmed in 1901 by King Carlos I.
