The The Empire of The Danube and The Kingdom New Flanders and Her Crownlands is a micronation founded on 17/12/17.

Etymology

The Danube was once a long-standing frontier of the Roman Empire, and today flows through 10 countries, more than any other river in the world. Originating in Germany, the Danube flows southeast for 2,860 km (1,780 mi), passing through or touching the border of Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine before emptying into the Black Sea. The name was taken from the said river the original territory was on one of the "unclaimed islands" between Croatia and Serbia.

Flanders (Dutch: Vlaanderen [ˈvlaːndərə(n)] (About this sound listen), French: Flandre [flɑ̃dʁ], German: Flandern) is the Dutch-speaking northern portion of Belgium, although there are several overlapping definitions, including ones related to culture, language, politics and history. It is one of the communities, regions and language areas of Belgium. New Flanders was originally a state of the Desi Empire, the name was chosen because the regions of Flanders was one of the most affluent regions of the Hapsburg empire.


History

Pre Independence

The idea for the nation was conceived with the compact between Co-Prine Casimir and Alexander Von Habsburg-Donau-Flandern-Lothringen. The original idea was for the nation to be located in the Hala'ib Triangle and to be called the Principality of South Egypt. After this was seen as unattainable the moved the site to the Disputed border between Croatia and Serbia and was then called The Grand Principality of The Danube. After three months Casimir began to neglect his duty and was dethroned by Alexander Von Habsburg-Donau-Flandern-Lothringen. It took it's final form by December 6 2016 and declared independence from The United States.

King Alexander's Reign

Union

The Kingdom of New Flanders was originally a constituent state is the now-defunct Desi Empire. Following the collapse of the said empire, New Flanders fell under the suzerainty of Shorewell. The Danubine government attempted several diplomatic negotiations with the Sultan, though to minimal avail. Several vague references were made by the Sultan on the future of the state, however, Shorewell's sudden diplomatic isolation in February 2018 led the Danubine government to assume full control over the state under the supervision of King Alexander. New Flanders and the Danube had already been previously united under Act of Union, taking effect on the 18th of December 2017.
