Other names used for the Kingdom are: Grail Kingdom and Templar Kingdom. The nation is called the Templar Kingdom because it's military is made up of templars, who still follow the knight's code of honour.
the United Holy Kingdom of Beaulosagñe and the Knights Templar of the Holy Grail is the only one micronation, based on the European Medieval Knights Templar. The kingdom claims, being decendands from these heroic knights, through the disputed Larmenius charther. 
The Knight's Templar 1099-1312
The history of the Knights Templar is comprised of events that span more than 200 years. It is covered in excellent books that tell the whole story from different perspectives But if you want to get a very brief education in the main historic events that involve the legendary order of warrior monks, here is a quick sum up if important dates:
- 1099 Jerusalem captured during the First Crusade. [the truth about the Crusades] Godfrey de Saint-Omer, one of the future founders of the Knights Templar order, most likely came to the Holy Land at this time.
- 1118 The Order of the Knights Templar was established in Jerusalem by twelve knights, including Hugues de Payens, the order’s first Grandmaster. Their main stated purpose was to protect Christian pilgrims in the Holy Land. King Baldwin II (pictured) granted the knights the use of the mosque on Temple Mount.
- 1129 The Knights Templar were officially recognized by Pope Honorius II at the Council of Troyes. The Latin Rule, written by Bernard de Clairvaux, was approved as guidelines for this first religious military order.
- 1139 papal bull Omne Datum Optimum (Latin for “Every perfect gift”, James 1:17), issued by pope Innocent II, made the Knights Templar exempt from tithes and taxes, allowing them to use the spoils of war at their own discretion.
- 1146 The Paris Temple was built, to serve as the global headquarters for the Knights Templar.
- 1187 On July 4, Saladin defeated Crusader forces at Hattin. Templar Knights captured in the battle were beheaded. On October 4, Jerusalem fell to Saladin.
- 1191 The Knights Templar established their new Outre-mer (“Overseas”) headquarters in Acre.
- 1217-21 Castle Pilgrim (Atlit) was built.
- 1229 Jerusalem was regained by crusading forces through diplomatic efforts of Frederick II.
- 1244 In Southern France, papal forces brutally suppressed the Cathars, a powerful heretical group. Jerusalem surrendered by Crusaders for the final time.
- 1291 Fall of Acre. The Syrian citadel of Tortosa and Castle Pilgrim abandoned by the Templars.
- 1302 Fall of Ruad, the last Christian stronghold in Outre-mer.
- 1307 Philip the Fair, King of France, orders massive arrests of the Knights Templar on charges of heresy, sodomy, corruption and apostasy. Torture was used to extract confessions, eventually resulting it executions. Outside of France the fate of the Knights Templar varied greatly, allowing many to escape persecutions.
- 1312 The Order of the Knights Templar was officially dissolved in the bull Vox in Excelso, issued by pope clement V. The order’s possessions were transferred to the Knights Hospitaller. But there is much evidence, to believe that, the holy order from this point on, just went underground.
Knights of Mount Zion 1312-1804
- 1312 On the night before his arrest, Jacques De Molay gives his power, secrets and keys, to his second in command, who silently sliped out of Paris.
- 1314 Jacques De Molay, the last (official) Grandmaster of the Knights Templar, was burned at the stake in Paris on March 18.
- 1317 King Dinis applies near the newly elected Pope in Avignon for the recognition of the Order of Christ, formed with the former Templar Knights and owner of all Templar possessions in the realm of Portugal.
- 1319 The Order of Christ is approved by Pope John XXII. D. Gil Martins, Master of the Order of Aviz is the first Master of the Order of Christ and the new Order is put under the spiritual guidance of… the Cistercian Monastery of Alcobaça. The seat is Castro Marim.
After persecution had broken out, all over France, what was left over of the order, had to go into hiding, a lot of them went to Spain (this became the order of Montesa, which was affiliated with the calatrava knights) and Portugal (this became the Order of Christ), others to England and Scotland (these got absorbed by the freemasons), others to Germany (becoming part of the Johannites), again others to the Netherlands. The underground order in France, became know as "Knights of Mount Zion", but knights far away from this order, joined other organizations. When the Templar needed to go underground, they had to join numerous occult organizations, like the Masons, Rosicrucian Order, Johannites, and the Kabbalist Order of the Rose-cross, these occult organizations accepted these Templars as members of their orders, with open arms, with the obvious intend to get their hands on the immense wealth, that king Pillip not had been able to find.
Royaumme du Temple 1804-1980
Out of contempt for the pope, Napoleon Bonaparte sanctioned the establishment of the Royaumme du Temple, a renewed templar order (no longer a catholic one but a protestant one out of protest against the popes, who we find are still guilty of treason towards the order). Jacques Clignet Du Brabant becoming its first new Grand Master. This marked the beginning of a revived Templar Order, out in the open again, with no need to hide. This was also relected more in the new templar flag (with a french flair), that was adopted on 1804, when Ordo Supremus Militarus Templi Hierosolymitani (Sovereign and Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem-OSMTH (Swiss Federal Registry Number CH-660.1972999-4)) broke away from Royaumme du temple in the same year. OSMTH has kept the more traditional flag. Royaumme du Temple still does recognize her sister organization OSMTH as legit, even after the schism of 1804.
- This order has no freemason, esoteric, gnostic or mystical connections
- No new age or occult connections, and stays clear of all of them.
- This order is a Christian order that rejects the pope as head of the church.
- All Christians are welcome
1st Kingdom 1980-1987
Kingdom of Bolozanje
In 1980, the Templar Kingdom was formed and it has been a free state since its foundation in the Netherlands, but once the prince moved, so did the territories of the kingdom. The flag of the 1st kingdom did not really reflect the templar roots other then the withe and black lines The Templar Kingdom later formed alliances with many micro-nations and still to this day base itself on the knight's code of honor. The kingdom plans to expand, using honor, loyalty and goodwill to all men, to make the best of a ever worsening situation.
2nd Kingdom 1987-1992
Kingdom of Beaulosagne
In 1987 the prince moved to canada, the old territories were abandoned and new ones aquired. At this time the kingdom also aquired a new name with a bit more french caracter: Beaulosagne.
3d Kingdom 1992-2010
United Kingdom of Beaulosagne
In 1992 the kingdom got united with 11 other tiny kingdoms, forming a united kingdom of 12 tiny territories, with the King being the King-Overlord and the other Kings being called Paladins.
4th Kingdom 2010-today
United Holy Kingdom of Beaulosagñe and the Knights Templar of the Holy Grail
With the formation of the fourth kingdom, the kingdom wanted to return to its old roots and the new flag got adopted. Also with the move of the prince to spain the last change took place: the ñ was added to reflext the spanish caracter of the nation.
With the 4th kingdom came about, also a desire to return to the old roots and adapt a new, more templar style flag. A flag which clearly was more templar.
The Templar Kingdom later formed alliances with many nations and still to this day bases itself on the knight's code of honor. It has been a free micronation since its foundation in the netherlands. The kingdom plans to expand, using Honour, loyalty and goodwill to all men, to make the best of a ever worsening situation, of spanish crisis. The Kingdom intends to set up a new and fair banking system in the near future and build or restore an old castle for templar Knight use.
The Templar Kingdom is the last one of the few modren templar groups that still claims to be a direct decent from the medieval knights by way of the Larmenius Chater. 
This Kingdom has no freemason, baphomet, esoteric, gnostic, mystical, new age or occult connections, and stays clear of them. However it sees itself as the guardians of the Holy Grail, which it protects from Saracen stain. This Kingdom is a Christian Kingdom that rejects the pope as head of the church. All Christians are welcome as citizens. This Kingdom is a Christian Kingdom that rejects izlamic invasion of Europe (throught planned refugee immigration) and the rest of the free world.
Government and Politics
The United Holy Kingdom is an absolute theocratic monarchy with Jesvs Christ as its head of state. The state maintains an earthly representative, a prince whose title is "Hand of the King". The Hand is assisted by twelve Paladins (minsters) who are chosen by the Hand for their capable skills. The Paladins serve the Hand for life unless, the Hand re-asigns them. There is no parliament and there are no elections. Paladins and all other necessary officials are appointed by the Hand. The second in command is the Arch-Duke. He would come to power if the Hand suddenly would fall ill. The Templar Kingdom considers itself a legitamate sovereign state by the authority of Christ. The government exist to serve the nation and not the nation to serve the government. The Carta Magnifica also states that kingdom is humanitarian, and is not out on making a profit. It serves God, Christ, and it neighbour, not itself. The Templar Kingdom is a fierce adversary of globalism / one world goverment. The political stand of the Templar Kingdom is that of Christian-solidarity, and not that of maxist or even socialism, because Jesvs was solidair with the people but also an individualist, and all Templars are equal under the law as individuals.
Constitution and Templar Canon
The basis of law or constitution of the Templar Kingdom is the Templar Cannon. The Templar Cannon is made up of two books, the Templar Codex and Carta Magnifica. These books form the non changeable law of the land. The constitution states new laws are drafted by the Grand Council (parliament), but voted into law by all citizens, new laws cannot at any time make parts of the Carta Magnifica obsolete. All Grand Council (parliament) members (36) have one vote in the process just as every citizen does. If a law is rejected, it has to be redrafted.
The Templar Canon is the complete 'constitution' which includes the Carta Magnifica and Templar Codex together. The Carta Magnifica is the first two books that forms the 'constitution' of the Templar Kingdom. The Carta is comprised of various sections dictating the rights and obligations of it's citizens, of 'parliament', and of his royal highness the prince. The Templar Codex is the second book of the Canon which includes all religious laws which aren't included in the Carta Magnifica. No outside law or international law can change, alter or influence any laws within the Codex and Carta Magnifica.
Hand of the King
The Hand of the King is the representative of King Christ on Earth. His office is that of uniting all Templar orders into one for the second comming of Christ. The Hand is Prince of the Templar Kingdom, since Christ is the King of the Kingdom. The Hand of the King, is head of state (DEX GRA REX), Grand-Master-Knight of the military order of Templar Knights and defender of the faith (FID DEF) of the Templar Church. The post of Hand of the King, Arch-Duke and that of Paladin are not hereditary, when the Hand abdicates, he chooses the new Hand of the king. The old Hand then stays prince regent until death. The Hand of the King is assisted by a council of 12 knights also called the Round Table of the Templar Council. If the Hand of the King dies before appointing a new Hand, then the 12 Paladins will elect one from among themselves, to be the next Hand. (In this process one can not vote for himself.) The Arch-Duke serves as vice-prince in the absence of the Hand (at the moment there is not Arch-Duke).
High Council of Twelve
The High Council of Twelve is a group of 12 highly qualified noble citizens, helping the Hand of the King govern the Holy Kingdom. Each has a task to perform for which the Hand calls them, they are all appointed by the Hand. None of these 12 paladins is voted in through elections. They stay in their position until, the Hand finds he needs them else where. None of these seats are hereditary. None get paid for their services, serving is the great honour in itself. If the Hand dies then from among these 12 a new Hand is to be chosen, by the 12 in casting a vote. They can not vote for themselves however.

Beaulosagñe's national currency is the Sovereign Templar Crown. The economy is based on the sales of stamps, coins, banknotes, T-shirts, calenders, books and nobility titles. In the near future, the kingdom plans to add a publishing house to their industry. Stores, offices, banks, government offices and facturies are closed on Lord's day.
The printing of new money falls directly under the authority of the Banc Templarii (the central bank of the Templar Kingdom.) no other bank has the right to print the money or to put it into circulation. The Sovereign Templar Crown can be bought (and be traded back in), but is not open for trade on the open market. The Sovereign Templar Crown is backed by silver.
They can be purchased for 10 € a piece, (they are handcrafted).
The Templar Kingdom promotes the following ideologies of Green Thinking and Templarism. Green thinking is basically living a lifestyle without creating waste, less pollution in the air and water, and encourage an era of planting more trees. To reuse, reduce and recycle more. Templarism is a return to a less complicated lifestyle, of life without mobile phones, fax, computers, television, and the latest gadgets that make companies rich, but make people poor and less happy. Because happiness does not come from the to obtaining of more and more possessions. Citizens are also advised to use more handmade or local made products.
The Templars of old were a monk order of all male members and no doubt because of this, homosexual acts might have happened in their ranks, under a don't ask don't tell policy. For this reason, the kingdom is BGLT friendly and allows asylum seekers of the BGLT community (from hostile nations) into the Grail kingdom. The kingdom does not see being Gay and being Christian (at the same time) as a contradiction, but as qualities that can complement each other. Making a person more compasionate, caring and understanding of the plight a Gay or a Christian or a Gay-Christian goes through.
BGLT couples are allowed to adopt children. Sex education; is not to be given by the school system, to children under the age of 15.
The Templar Kingdom is unique and different, in its ethnicity, in that it's a Christian nation that has Christ as its king and that its army is Templar knights, who still hold to the knight's oath. It is also the only one country, based on the Knights Templar and medieval europe in general. The kingdom claims, being decendands from these heroic knights, through the 'disputed' Larmenius charther  and claims to be the only true guardians of the Holy Grail. The hand of the king being the Grand-Master-Kinght (commader and chief) of the Templar army. A Templar Knight (within the Templar Kingdom) must own a sword, to be considered a knight. (With this sword, he is dubbed knight, after having fasted during the night of his wake.)
Also the Templar Kingdom is unique in it currency, it being devided in 12 pieces and is not a decimal system as all other nations.
The Templar Kingdom is also different in that it recommends it's citizen to dress in the Templar (medieval) clothing style and recommands to be as least possible, dependant on modren technology, like internet and mobilephones.
The Templar Kingdom is also sometimes called the "Protestant Vatican" or the "Iberian Vatican" (Depending on the view you are talking about; "religious afiliation" or "geographic location".) "Map-North" according to the Templar Kingdom is East (towards Jerusalem)
The Kingdom uses a different calendar from the rest of Europe. The start date of their calendar is at the formation of the Templar order. So as to know in which year humanity lives, ( from Jan 1 to March 21 subtract 1119, March 21 to Dec 31 subtract 1118) from the current Gregorian calendar, to know the date in Templar Years. (TY) example: 1980-1118=862, written as TY862/1980AD or as 862/1980 or just as 862. All months of the Templar calendar have 30 days and start with the full moon, month can overlap into the new year. The new year starts with Semana-Santa, which is always the first week of the new Templar year, no matter which month it is, this entire week is a national holiday. The names of the 12 month are named after the 12 apostles, "the month of Matthew, the month of Mark...ect" To avoid refering to pagan gods, here is how the Templar Kingdom calls the days of the week.
- sunday - Sunday
- monday - Moonday
- tuesday - Earthday
- wednesday - Planet(s)day
- thursday - Starday
- friday - Fastingday
- saturday - Lord'sday
The official religion of the Templar Kingdom is the Templar Church  an Apostolic Protesant branch. As with all protestant churches, the Templar Church does not recongize the pope nor the vatican. This is because pope clement V, disbanded the Knights Templar in 1307. However, since 1307 the Templars have continued to exist but as a protestant church/order. Members of the templar church are encouraged to read the Bible daily and to pray daily to IHVH God. The Templar Bible is seen as the ultimate authority in the lives of a devout templar. For the teachings and dogma of the church, go to our Templar Church home page. 
Witchcraft/witches - witchcraft is illegal in the Templar Kingdom, as the holy Bible forbids it, they don't get burned as in the past, however their books of witchcraft, are to be burned (Acts 19:19) and are not allowed to be imported or printed. Anyone found guilty of practising witchcraft or being found guilty of being a witch is deported/excommunicated from the country/nation, with no return possible.
