The Principality of Gleichenberg was founded on April 8, 2018 by the government of the (then) Principality of Phokland. The state was gained as the result of a war between Phokland and Mangolia. The Principality of Gleichenberg acted as a commonwealth of Phokland and was primarily used as a military base for the Phoklandian Coast Guard. In recent times however, the principality has become a territory of the now Tsardom of Phokland and (while self governing) is a part of the phoklandian crown and as such is home to the brother of the incumbent Tsar Charles I, Lord Sean Griffith.

Leadership

Gleichenberg is under the primary leadership of the Gleichenbergian Imperial Council and the leader of the territory, Princess Kaidyn I.

Gleichenberg is also overseen by the Phoklandian Office of Foreign Affairs and subsequently Tsar Charles I.

History

Since it's start in 2018, Gleichenberg has had a rather tumultuous history.

Collapse

On September 19, 2018, H.L. Prince Charles I of Phokland disbanded the gleichenbergian government and officially dissolved the state following a financial crash that left the phoklandian government unable to pay for the small principality. Regardless, the title of Prince/Princess of Gleichenberg continues to be used as a courtesy title for the heir apparent to the Phoklandian Crown.

Restoration

In April of 2019, the Tsardom of Phokland restarted the principality as a territory in the house of Lord Sean Griffith.
