kingdom_redonda

Is this true, not, or just a crock (#13)?

kingdom_redonda.jpgThe Kingdom Of Redonda, a tiny island one square mile off the Southwest coast of Antigua was first discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493 who named it, Santa Maria la Redonda. With a monarchy currently in dispute with four declared rulers, King Leo I, King Robert aka “Bob the Bald”, King Javier and King Max.

A land whose chief export is described as “Guano”, with a population of seagulls and a feral flock of goats trapped on the island perhaps because they can’t build boats to migrate.

Recently, a Pub in Southampton, England, attempted to declare itself an embassy of the Kingdom of Redonda in order to gain diplomatic immunity from local laws. Its two stamps feature Queen Elizabeth and “Robert the Bald”.
