The County of Grosvenor Park is a subdivision of the Principality of Wildflower Meadows, claimed on 14 October 2016.

Government

Grosvenor Park is a county of Wildflower Meadows. The title Countess of Grosvenor Park is currently held by Princess Hannah, who rules the entire principality as its absolute monarch; what powers would be delegated to the county's noble if the position were held by another individual is yet to be seen.

The day-to-day administration of the territory is undertaken by the government of the United Kingdom, which does so by the permission of the Princess despite not recognising her claim to the land.

History

United Kingdom

For most of recorded history, the land on which Grosvenor Park is now situated was comprised of fields close to the city of Chester. The fields were given to the city as a public park by Richard Grosvenor, 2nd Marquess of Westminster, who owned the land; over 1865-66 the park was laid out with trees, footpaths, and flowerbeds, and officially opened to the public in early November 1867.

Wildflower Meadows

On 14 October 2016, Princess Hannah of Wildflower Meadows visited Grosvenor Park with her fiancée Emperor Jonathan I of Austenasia. While there, the Emperor annexed the park from the United Kingdom to the Principality of Wildflower Meadows at the request of the Princess.

Geography

Grosvenor Park is bordered by Maybridge to the north and to the west, and by the United Kingdom to the south and to the east. At its closest point to Chester Meadows it is less than 250 feet away, with little more than the River Dee between the two.
