His Majesty King Roman initially inherited royalty as Grand Duke of Lithuania from his Polish father 48 years ago in 1967, confirmed by royal tomb at Brama IV in Warsaw, in letters patent 1993 prepared by Alan, Earl of Dalvey, and by a Lithuanian genealogist. His royalty was enhanced by a Darwin lawyer's determination of accrual of many other royal titles. See Royal Succession.
As a result, in May 2005 King Roman declared himself King of East Europe, now renamed Europa, and crowned himself as others (like Napoleon, Emperor of France) have done before. He prefers to reign from tropical Darwin, Australia, where he and his wife have resided since 1975.
King Roman is usually referred to as His Majesty, yet he is rightly His Imperial Majesty, from which determination he is able to grant the royal titles of King and Queen, and may release some of his own royal titles in order to create new Kingdoms. See REAL Titles from REAL King.
