The foreign relations of the Kingdom of Ebenthal are implemented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The King and the Prime Minister play a role in setting policy, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs has a voice and is the one who develop this policy.
Since its founding, the Kingdom of Ebenthal and it's government pays special attention to foreign affairs. One of the first ministries of government was precisely the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which was founded on the same day that the Monarchy on 11 August 2014.
Although diplomatic relations be conducted by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the leadership of Foreign Affairs is de facto by the monarch. Ebenthal almonst monthly studies and develops diplomatic relations with several micronations around the world, maintaining cordial relations with everyone and accounting for only one international incidents. Apart of micronations, the Ebenthali State also reserves for itself the right to do not recognize a current govern regime of a nation.
Ebenthal's international relations are based on Article 6th of the National Constitution, which establishes non-intervention, self-determination, international cooperation and peaceful settlement of conflicts as the guiding principles of Ebenthal's relationship with other micronations and multilateral organizations.
In the late 2019, under King Arthur II, the Ebenthali policy incorporated the principle to not recognize anymore simulationist and historical-modelist micronationational projects as real micronations, on the grounds that these format are often fanciful, full of fiction, and it may be summarized as the simulation of an existing state, and thus, not be de facto a nation-state. This personal conduct by the King was later officialized when the country became a signatory to the Treaty of Persenburg which establishes the non-recognition of simulationist and historical-modelist micronations as a guideline to it's signatories' foreign policy.
Another side of the Ebenthali foreign policy is the compromise to not recognize political regimes illegaly installed and/or lacking legitimacy. Such as, many of the current world's republics, mostly born from coups d'état against legitimate monarchies, are not recognized, while their previous monarchical regimes are still recognized are sovereign states. This policy it isn't exclusive to monarchies, legally or legitimatelly proclaimed republics, either seccessionists or not, are also recgonized by the Ebenthali government. Former sovereign states which were illegaly annexed are also recognized, by the force of legitimacy as interpreted by the Ebenthali government, as actual sovereign states.
