The Fiefdom and Lordship of Yuillmont is a micronation founded on February 9, 2015.
Yuillmont was founded as a fiefdom of the United Kingdom in 2015 by Kyle Flynn. However, after having not received recognition from the U.K., Yuillmont was made a semi-sovereign nation with a government and feudal system.
The Yuillmont derives from two words, Yuill (or Yule) a word relating to christmas and nordic holy days. The word "mont" derives from the french word for mountain, thus holy mountain.
