A Capsule History of Redonda

Maybe I'll just post links to Strange Maps stories all day. Here's another, a capsule history of the micronation of Redonda, which has land, a king (invested by Queen Victoria, no less), dukes, but no actual population. (It appears that it briefly had an embassy in the UK recently, but the Foreign Office rejected its legitimacy.)

The article you mention, while useful from a geographic standpoint, is incomplete. There is also a Kingdom of Redonda which is recognised by the Fifth World Council (5WC), but the authentic claimant, and his charity-involved kingdom, are not mentioned in the article you mention, or even in the Wikipedia article about Redonda. Here is an article that does mention the recognised Kingdom of Redonda:
Thanks for the tip. I'll check out the article!
