The Grand Duchy of Lithuania has been in exile since 1795, when it was partitioned to Russia.
The Grand Dukes/Princes Gedroyc were acknowledged notably by letters patent Vilnius 1811 and St Petersburg 1873. Copy of the former is held by Grand Duke Roman 2 in Darwin, Australia.
The princely Gedroyc lineage continued until 1943 when it passed to Lieutenant Roman Emiljan Dambski of Lubraniec (+ Gliwice 22 November 1967) who had married the Lithuanian heiress Princess Paulina in 1937.
In 1967 the title passed to Ronald Victor Charles Mann, Roman's elder Scottish child, born Edinburgh 1942 of Katherine Mann (+ Torquay 2012).
When the Soviet Union disintegrated in 1991, Lithuania became independent.
In 1992, Prince Ronald visited his stepmother Paulina Gedroyc Dambska (+ Warsaw 1993), elder child of Prince Wladislaw Gedroyc (+ Zubracze 1943), and discovered evidence on the Dambski Tomb at Brama 4 in Warsaw of his heredity as Count of Lubraniec and Grand Duke/Prince of Lithuania.
Letters patent dated 1993 were prepared by Alan, EarI of Dalvey, co-signatory Darwin lawyer Anthony Buckland.
Vilnius genealogist Sigita Gasparaviciene confirmed the Gedroyc lineage.
In April 1994, at the invitation of Chev. Jonas Stankus, Prince Ronald, now Grand Duke Roman 2, attended the inauguration of the Royal Society of Lithuanian Nobility (LBKS) in Vilnius.
The attending nobility (c. 400) demonstrated their desire for the Grand Duchy of Lithuania to be restored, a desire that was countered by Communist influences from the recently passed Soviet Union.
In 2005, federating territories found by lawyer Anthony Buckland to legally accrue to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, Grand Duke Roman 2 created the Kingdom of Europa (in Exile).
As a Monarchy in Exile, the Kingdom of Europa has recognized rights in International Law, mainly the right to continue to act as if the monarchy continues to exist.
King Roman's current goal is to be constitutionally recognized as royal sovereign of the constituent territories - Grand Duke/Prince of Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Latvia, and Prince of Moldova.
Regardless of whether this happens sooner, later, the Kingdom of Europa is real and continues in exile, as do its constituents.
Anyone who would like to assist the Monarchy in Exile in its quest, or with his special projects, is most welcome to enquire.

"It is extremely rare that people interested in nobility and royalty fully understand or comprehend the legal right of the sovereign head of a deposed royal house to be a fons honorum with the lawful right to award honors and give special recognitions for merit"... "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 law."
