Official website of His Imperial Majesty King Roman 1     De Jure  and De Facto Sovereign of Europa and Lithuania 


"There seems to be a strong bias against the monarch in exilenot in the law, but in how it is applied or administered. Thus he is ignored, brushed off  and hindered from making any progress in re-obtaining his former rule." In this hindrance, courts and other organs are clearly complicit.



King Roman, then Prince Ronald, inherited the Grand Principality/Duchy and Kingdom of Lithuania on 22 November 1967, and formed the Kingdom of Europa in 2004.


Still in exile at the age of 73 (2015), and earlier legally informed of accrual of 30 other regions to his Lithuanian Realm, including in particular the Principality of Moldova and the Grand Duchy of Latvia (former Duchies of Courland and Livonia), His Majesty King Roman proclaimed their federation with the Grand Duchy and Kingdom of Lithuania in 2005 and crowned himself king, as others  did before (for example, Napoleon Emperor of France).

The Capitals of King Roman's Realm are Darwin and Vilnius


                                                              "The absent sovereign remains the de jure government of the country"                                                 (Oppenheimer, "Governments and Authorities in Exile," American Journal of International Law, p. 571)

"If a person is a Sovereign, even without recognition from the country to which he is heir, he is entitled to recognition and to Sovereign Privileges and Sovereign Immunity.(Prof. Stephen P Kerr, The Entitlement to Rule)

                "Sovereignty depends not upon external factors, but upon the person in whom such status resides.                              Such entitlement is independent of diplomatic lists, and exists of itself in the person of the Sovereign."              (from The Entitlement to Rule) 

                                 "The deposed monarch is therefore entitled to full recognition by other sovereigns,                                        and all nations and all people, adhering to the moral and ethical principles implicit in International Law."                 ("King and Constitution in International Law," The Augustan, vol. 18, no. 4, 1977, p. 126) 

       "All sovereigns are equal, not of course in power, but in rank ... Sovereign equality under the law was a part of                              the Treaty of Westphalia and is enshrined in the charter of the United Nations as a law."                             (from The Entitlement to Rule)

                         Do you have any questions?

His Imperial Majesty King Roman is the de facto/ jure legal Sovereign of the currently united/ federated Monarchies of Lithuania and of Europa in exile.

1. INTERNATIONAL LAW acknowledges the inherent and continuing legal rights of a Monarchy in  exile.

          A Monarch/ Monarchy in exile claims to be a country's legitimate government, although currently unable to exercise legal power in that country, and instead resides in a foreign country. 

           The Monarch in Exile is recognized/ acknowledged in International Law as having the right to keep the Monarchy alive until full recognition is achieved

2. INTERNATIONAL LAW recognizes that a Monarch /Monarchy in Exile may undertake many types of activity. These include, but not confined to

            1. retaining  or  obtaining  diplomatic recognition from other states,  and                                                                                    

            2. becoming party to bilateral/ international treaties. 

 A court challenge before the European Court of Justice may be vital to clarify the claim of the Monarch in exile and proceed to full restoration of Monarchy.                                                           Access to European Union Law  


His Imperial Majesty Dr King Roman was born Ronald Charles Victor Mann in Edinburgh Scotland in 1942 during World War 2. His father was Lieutenant Grand Prince Roman Emil Dambski (1901 Boryslaw - 1967 Gliwice - procession 1988 Brama 4 Warsaw) who in 1927 married Lithuanian heiress Princess Paulina Gedroyc, who later was officially declared missing in 1940. His mother was Katherine Mann (Edinburgh 1913 - Torquay 2012), a descendant of Sir Anthony van Dyck, who was court painter to both King James 1 who united England and Scotland and Charles 1 of England who fell foul of Cromwell and Parliament.

In 1960, Roman graduated from Trinity Academy in Chemistry, Physics, English, French, and Maths, German and History. He also learned Latin, Piano, Guitar, and Singing. In 1961 he joined the Royal Air Force Secretarial Squadron and was posted to RAF Steamer Point Aden in 1962. 

In 1967 he emigrated to Melbourne Australia, where he learned to fly, and sang and played guitar regularly on radio 3DB and on GTV9. However, in 1973, he instead chose appointment as a patrol officer in Papua New Guinea (and was later awarded the Police Overseas Service Medal TPNG) over the offer of the offer of a singing contract. Returning to England on SS Australis, he was appointed an executive officer with HM Customs and Excise and joined the Royal Navy Reserve at Bristol. 

Late 1975 he married and settled in Darwin Australia, was appointed to the Attorney-General's Department, and at self-government in 1978 as section officer in charge at the Department of Law, from which he resigned in 1986 to pursue humanitarian activities. During these latter years he was appointed the first Group Leader of the Port Darwin Sea Scouts in 1981, became an Australian Yachting Federation instructor, and obtained a Coxswain Certificate from Charles Darwin University. He was also a presenter and singer on Radio 8TopFM for six years.

Dr Roman founded various organizations, and he was awarded Knight Grand Cross (Rizal) and Knight Grand Commander (St Daniel). He has various doctorates in Philosophy, Divinity, and Naturopathy, and diplomas in Journalism, Legal Studies, Forensics, Psychology, etc. Amongst others, he founded the charity Filipino Club Darwin in 1990, and is a Lifetime Member of the British Guild of Drugless Practitioners. He is a former member, amongst others, of the Producers and Directors Guild of Australia, International Institute of Professional Photography, and Australian Society of Authors. He is inventor of Moonship Phoenix, and a published author of various books including The Amazing Adventures of Professor John Hudson trilogy, and two short encyclopedias, and in retirement he enjoys annual sea cruises. 

Dr Roman discovered his royal inheritance of Lithuania in 1992, although there has been a global conspiracy to keep it secret. His claims were confirmed by historians, genealogist and lawyer. King Roman's charity and humanitarian work was acknowledged in the local Northern Territory Parliament. He was nominated for a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1998, for the Pride of Australia Medal 2008, and for Australian of the Year 2009.
