Normandy-Nichen, officially Normano-Nichish Kingdom, sometimes addressed as Nimandy or "Normano-Nichish Monarchy" (Latin: Regnum Normandiae-Nichenum; Croatian: Kraljevina Normandija-Ničen) is a self-proclaimed sovereign state, by external observers addressed as a micronation, holding claims in the Republic of Croatia, Federative Republic of Brazil, United States and the United Kingdom focused around the development of christianity, christian morality, and catholic traditions.

It, according to Ludwig Brienović, wishes to promote morality, distributism and peace. The principality was founded by Sir Christoph Billung, but was later given to the Kingdom of Brienia, a former micronation led by King Ludwig Brienović. Nichensburgians also believe in the concept of the Divine Theory of Monarchs, according to the various sources from the nation, a system in which the king claims to have received power from God himself, which could also mean that God himself can take away the power of the monarch. The Normano-Nichish Kingdom is a de jure constitutional monarchy, where the power of the sovereign prince is limited by unwritten constitution, but has power to veto elections, voting and laws.


Etymology

Name Normandy comes from the cultural region in France of the same name. This name was chosen due to the cultural connection to France and Normandy, Name Nichensburg has no meaning.

History

The first Principality of Nichensburg was founded around 2018 by Sir Christop Billung as the "Kingdom of Begonia". Begonia was largery inactive between February-May 2020. In the transition from September to October 2020, The Kingdom of Begonia was rebranded as The Kingdom of Nichensburg, making it an important title. Sir Christoph decided to give up project to the Kingdom of Brienia as "internal personal union member state", and continue his work in then Grand Principality of Begon. The Principality continued to be an internal personal union member state until the February 2021, when Brienian King Višeslav II. Brienović departed from Brienia and community, but came back and proclaimed independence from Brienia under Nichensburg. Regnal name of Brienović was changed to "Ludwig Brienović".

The Kingdom of Normandy was founded on October 10th 2020, claiming successorship to the medieval Duchy of Normandy. The Kingdom was founded to promote the traditional Western European culture and the Catholic Faith, and monarchy. On 3o March 2021, King of Normandy Louis de Blois accepted an offer of union from HSH The Prince.

Politics and government

His Serene Highness, Prince Ludwig is the current leader of the Principality of Nichensburg. The purpose of the prince's office is to look after the whole nation, veto elections, votings and laws to protect the nation from heresy. The prince has limited power under unwritten constitution, and cannot be removed from office, and rules until abdication or death. The prince directly chooses the Senators for the Senate, upper house of the Landtag. The title of prince is inherited, and will be given to the eldest son. The current prince (Ludwig Brienović) has been ruling Nichensburg since October 2020 as its Grand Duke, and since February 2021 as its prince.

The Landtag is a bicameral legislature. The upper house is called "Senate", which has unlimited number of seats, and is comprised of nobles, who are directly chosen by the monarch. All of the laws need to be approved by the senate, since it has much delegated power. The lower house is called "Serene Diet", which has around three to six seats, to which members are elected by the people of Nichensburg. It is also worth mentioning that Landtag chooses the Chancellor, who is then approved by the monarch.

Laws of the principality are decided by acts of the Landtag and decrees of the monarch. Order is maintained and ensured by the princely guard. Pontunia has its own militia, called on in times of war.
