Maarten I of Arkel, Duke of Gelre, Count of Flanders and Holland, Count of Bruggia, Viscount of Poorhund and Domarainer, Junker of Drakenhove OLGM, OVDZ, COF, KDOD, ACCL (born 19 June 1994) was the Prince of Arkel. Besides being the Prince of Arkel, he was also Minister of Foreign Affairs of Flandrensis. Until New Year's Day 2012, he was Secretary-General of the Antarctic Micronational Union.

Creating a new micronation

In February 2009 he became citizen of the Grand Duchy of Flandrensis and later he started his own micronation, the Principality of Arkel. It started with a Heerlijkheid but soon it became a Principality. The Prince claimed "Dean Island". He signed a treaty with Finismund that will recognise the independency of Arkel. Later, Azusa gave him a third of the Ross Ice Shelf.
