Ross Archipelago or County of Ross is a name for that group of islands located in Antarctica in which, together with the ice shelf between them, forms the eastern and southern boundaries of McMurdo Sound. It was claimed by the Principality of Lomellina in 6 August 2014 apart from the Dellbridge Islands and Ross Island. The most northerly is Isola Beaufort then Isola Nera and Isola Bianca. Frank Debenham's classic report, The Physiography of the Ross Archipelago, 1923, described "Brown Island" (now Brown Peninsula) as a part of the group.
Following the foundation of Lomellina, D. Guilherme I claimed 3 islands as being Lomellinian territory in 6 August 2014, forming the County of Ross and it's Duchies, one per island. Currently, the prince is in the search for the right of claiming the other two islands, respectively the Dellbridge Islands and Ross Island and annexed it to the Archipelago.
Government and politics
All of Ross is controlled by the Count and the Countess and in each island a Viscounty is established and a Viscount/Viscountess is appointed.
