The name, the Republic of Titania, was thought out by the founder, Arthish Banerjee, as he was particularly in love with the word for reasons yet unknown.
At about September, 2014, Arthish was introduced to micronationalism by James-Robert Knight, who thought of including Arthish in his own micronation, Vyktory. But, due to technical reasons, was forced to act otherwise. Arthish was then encouraged by him to start his own micronation, and thus the Republic of Titania was formed in the heart of Kolkata - by Arthish Banerjee and mostly his school friends.
