History

Establishment of Lydonia

The Principality of Lydonia was established on 30 March 2017 when Anna Tarrant declared herself Crown-Princess. With the support of her brother, William Tarrant, they began the process of nation-building. With Anna's ideals and knowledge of economics, and her brother's knowledge of politics, government, and familiarization with the micronational community they quickly drafted the necessary documents and established a basic national identity. Once they had decided upon a governmental structure, Anna I then appointed her brother to the office of High Chancellor as well as formally Knighting him by awarding him the High Order of Anna.
