History

Beginnings

Founding

On June 1, 2014, a woman with the alias of Angela Könstantin, among with a few other eccentric friends of hers, founded the Republic of Hepburn as she felt that she needed a place to practice her beliefs safely. Living in Puerto Rico, she believed that many people around her were conservative to their ideals and did not understand the changing society at the time and felt like as if she needed a place where she and her friends could be one.

The following night, on June 2, 2014, Angela and her friends began to hike up a hill near their home village in Puerto Rico and decided to claim the hill once when they had reached the summit. The group decided to call the newly claimed hill Nuevo Mäyaguez, and therefore the Kingdom of Hepburn had officially begun to exist.
