The Royal Family

The Royal Family of Edan thank all citizens and visitors for their interest.

 His Royal Majesty Richard I

King Richard was born in 1967 in North America and is one of 8 siblings. His family is descended from the Saxon kings of Sussex. He travelled extensively in his youth and developed a love of history early in life. As a young man he entered the armed forces and served over 7 years as a linguist, cryptographer, analyst, and leader. He served in the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991 and received medals for combat actions while detached to the French Foreign Legion. After leaving the military King Richard continued his education and began building a family. King Richard has a degree in Systematic Theology.

Heavily involved in the political theories concerning the birth of new nations after the collapse of the Soviet Union, King Richard  was briefly involved in the Republic of Lomar project (now the Regency of Lomar NGO) but concluded that the theory behind the appeal of micronationalism was almost entirely absent. After a year of additional research into sovereignty, social systems and economics King Richard began the Edanian constitution. In October of 1999 King Richard formally founded Edan.
