The Principality of Valia is an Aromanian heritage micronation founded on the 19th of August 2013, having as neighbor the Republic of Romania.


First officially declared and independent Aromanian state, the establishment of this micronation started in 2002, independence being fully declared on the 19th of August 2013. Important milestone in the forming of the current state was the presence of acting Princeps Kostas I at the aromanian convention on the 15th of August 2010 from Moskopole, Albania.

The founders are part of an esteemed aromanian family from the Balkan Peninsula with implications in many local hystorical events, amongst which the independence of Albania.


The Principality's name derives from the geographical area where it is situated, a valley across a river.


Residency of rules is at Valian Royal Palace.

Petros Kara (2002-2003) Born in 1925, emigrated from the Balkans (Albania, Bulgaria) to Romania between the two World Wars, one of the co-founders of the principality.

Leonidas Kara (2003-present) Born in 1958 in Romania, convinced anti-communist, co-founder of the principality and current Ruler.

Christian Kara (successor) Born in 1987, next in line for the Principality's throne. Very involved in the internal and external state matters, well seen by citizens despite conservative-nationalist views, in opposition with the liberal views of the current Prime-Minister Marco Zguri.

Supporter of "aromanians are part of the romanian heritage" ideology, disregards aromanian organizations which imply that aromanians are actually a minority, separate from the romanian population.
