The Autonomous Kingdom of Prussia was founded on August 14, 2012. Some of the symbols used by the micronation, had been used by the macronation the Kingdom of Prussia.
The name Prussia derives from the Old Prussians. In the 13th century, "Old Prussia" was conquered by German crusaders, the Teutonic Knights. In 1308 Teutonic Knights conquered the formerly Polish region of Pomerelia with Gdańsk (Danzig). Their monastic state was mostly Germanized through immigration from central and western Germany and in the south it was Colonized by settlers from Masovia. After the Second Peace of Thorn of 1466, Prussia was split into the western Royal Prussia, a province of Poland, and the eastern part, since 1525 called Duchy of Prussia, a fief of the Crown of Poland up to 1657. The union of Brandenburg and the Duchy of Prussia in 1618 led to the proclamation of the Kingdom of Prussia in 1701.
Founded on August 14 of 2012, Prussia can trace its origins back to the year 2000. The Prince, in middle school at the time, decided to get into maps, and history. A favorite part of history was German history. When Prince Justin I was in the 10th grade, himself under the name King Dameon Fear I and a friend, Joseph Elkins, under the name of King Darius Alucard Silver I, had decided to create a nation, encompassing the area of Europe that there families came from. So, with that, the Empire of Dominio was born, with both men as monarchs. Time went on, and Joseph decided against it, and Dominio was no more. As time went on, King Justinian I, still wanting to lead a country, set up Prussia as what could be considered a modern version of the Empire of Dominio.
Empire of Dominio Edit
Founded in 2003, later abandoned in 2010, The Empire of Dominio was a micronation that was run by King Dameon Fear I (King Justinian I of Prussia) and his friend King Darius Alucard Silver. The location came from the two leaders heritage. Darius/Joseph is Spanish and Dameon/Justin is German, Irish, French, Dutch, Scott, and English. Other European nations (Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Andorra) were included to give the nation more shape to it, and to include the whole of the Iberian Peninsula.
Bear Flag Republic Edit
Founded in 2005, later abandoned in 2007, the Bear Flag Republic was a micronation founded by Justin I. It was abandoned due to lack of interest in the idea of a micronation, though the Empire of Dominio still existed in Europe.
Located mainly within the United States.
Depending on the area lived in, the climate of Prussia ranges from Humid Subtropical (all territories), Highland (Alpine) (Colony of Reno),and Polar (Protectorate of New Swabia).
The Autonomous Kingdom of Prussia is a Constitutional Monarchy. Following Prussia's first constitution, a two-house parliament was formed. The lower house, or Landtag is elected by all taxpayers, who are divided into three classes according to the amount of taxes paid. This allowed just over 25% of the voters to choose 85% of the legislature, all but assuring dominance by the more well-to-do elements of the population. The upper house, which is named the Prussian House of Lords, is appointed by the King. He retains full executive authority and ministers are responsible only to him. As a result, the grip of the landowning classes, the Junkers, remain unbroken, especially in the eastern territories. Prussian Secret Police, aid in the conservative government.
The Autonomous Kingdom of Prussia currently is divided into six territories, one colony and one protectorate.
