Early Days (November 2015-August 2016)
The nation was founded by Antoine Lacaze in December 2015 (exact date unknown) when he heard of Micronations and "thought it'd be fun". He named his parents prince and princess, his sister prime minister and himself president of Senate. He annexed his whole house, and later an island in the river flowing nearby (the Garonne river), cut in half by a bridge.
Independence (September 2016-Present)
On September 6, 2016, he wrote, printed and then signed the Declaration of Independence and promoted himself to Prime Minister after the former Prime Minister's departure to the United States of America to college.
The Principality has 3 territories, all divided into provinces.
