The Principality of Garonne (FRG: Prinsipauté de la Garonne ; GR: Principĕt d'Garón) (also known as the Principality) is an independent house-state established in France in 2015.
Early Days (November 2015-August 2016) Edit
The nation was founded by Antoine Lacaze in December 2015 (exact date unknown) when he heard of Micronations and "thought it'd be fun". He named his parents prince and princess, his sister prime minister and himself president of Senate. He annexed his whole house, and later an island in the river flowing nearby (the Garonne river), cut in half by a bridge.
Independence (September 2016-2017) Edit
On September 6th, 2016, he wrote, printed and then signed the Declaration of Independence and promoted himself to Prime Minister after the former Prime Minister's departure to the United States of America to college.
Passing of Power (February 2017) Edit
On February 9th, the now former prime minister and his deputy decided that they should take control of the country by giving the prime minister the role of prince. He, his deputy, the now former royals and the the new deputy (Filip Johanssen) all signed a treaty officially declaring the passing of power.
