The Myrotanian Language, or simply Myrotanian, is a Germanic-based constructed language (conlang) created by the Emperor Thomas I near the end of June 2014 for official and academic use within the Empire of Myrotania and the language was originally intended to be based upon the Dutch language.

Our Father, who are in Heaven,
Your name is holy, Your kingdom come.
Your wish done-become on Earth, like in Heaven.
Give today to us our daily bread,
And forgive our trespasses,
As we forgive, who trespass against us.
And don't lead into temptation us,
But take away from us evil.


For the kingdom, the power and the glory,
Are now and eternally yours.
Amen
