Brunsnia, officially the Kingdom of Brunsnia, is a North American micronation within the State of North Carolina. Roanoke declared itself to be separate and independent from the United States on 01 April 2020.
The Kingdom of Brunsnia began as Roanoke, an idea some four years ago when Roanoke’s first Monarch was introduced into the world of micronationalism. He served with several micronations, and after more than four years of experience in micronationalism, His Majesty, Arthur I, decided to attempt his own micronation, and thus the Kingdom of Roanoke was born.
Named after the island in which King Arthur lived, Roanoke officially declared independence on 01 April 2020. The following day, Aaron Green was named the Prime Minister of Roanoke. Before Roanoke, King Arthur worked closely with Prime Minister Green within the micronation of Aariania. The flag of the Kingdom of Roanoke was created by Prime Minister Green and was officially adopted on 09 April 2020.
On 29 December 2020, the first Roanokean Ambassador was appointed by His Majesty to the Kingdom of the Netherlands. This was the first position created to represent the nation on a global scale. Sir Ralf M.M. Stultiëns of Nuenen was selected and was given the noble title of Duke of Hampton. Apart from micronations, Sir Ralf is the Deputy Mayor of the town of Nuenen, Netherlands.
On 06 January 2021, to prevent a possible coup, His Majesty fired Prime Minister Welles for actions concerning to the Monarchy and the people of the Kingdom. Welles exchanged expletives with His Majesty and left the Kingdom
On 11 January 2021, the Royal Coat of Arms for the Kingdom of Roanoke was created by His Grace the Duke of Orren and officially adopted by His Majesty.
On a rainy evening, 31 January 2021, King Arthur signed an Instrument of Abdication, removing himself from the throne, citing personal reasons. The crown passed to the Prime Minister, making him the second Monarch in the nation’s history, as King Christoph I. The Kingdom of Roanoke was renamed to The Kingdom of Brunsnia.
Brunsnia currently has an almost 20 square Acre claim, surpassing the claim of The Kingdom of Roanoke. The nation is located on the Eastern coast of North Carolina and is a roughly five-minute drive away from the beaches on the Atlantic Ocean.
On 17 January 2021, the Kingdom of Roanoke expanded its borders with the incorporation of land located nearby Dover. The new territory, Weaverton, is an approximate 7,100 square foot claim.
The Kingdom of Roanoke has two branches of military service, an Army and a Navy. The Army Base is located in Dover, while the Naval Base is located in Kent.
The Military is headed by the Chief of the Defense Staff (CDS). He is in charge of both branches of the armed services. At present, this position is vacant, with the promotion of Grand Prince Christoph of Begonia to Prime Minister on 06 January 2021. He was appointed to the position officially on 05 August 2020 and was the inaugural holder of the position.
Below the Chief of the Defense Staff are the Chiefs of the Army Staff and Naval Staff. These two officers, along with the CDS make up the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) is Admiral Vincent Ironside, who is also the Emperor of Arthuria.
Fort Aaron Green is the Army Base which houses the First Royal Infantry, known as Sir Aaron’s Own. This fort is named in honor of Sir Aaron Green, Roanoke’s first Prime Minister and friend of His Majesty. The two had worked together for several years.
RNS Burr is named after King Arthur I’s Great-Great Grandfather who served in the U.S. Navy during the Second World War. The Brunsnic Navy has three ships in its fleet, RNS Tiger, RNS Dolphin, and the flagship RNS Lion.
On 06 January 2021, the military leaders of the Kingdom of Roanoke all resigned due to a heated argument between the military and the King. With all posts becoming vacant, His Majesty and the Chief of the Defense Staff shall take over the positions until new members can be installed.
