Official website of the Europan Monarchy in exile
The Europan Monarchy in exile has existed since 24 May 2005 when His Majesty King Roman crowned himself, according to past precedent, in Darwin Australia as the Imperial King of Europa.
King Roman is the de jure legal Sovereign of both the Lithuanian and Europan Monarchies, which were joined as Europa in 2005. The Grand Duchy of Lithuania in exile belongs to the Kingdom of Europa in exile, with the Grand Duke as King.
In 2005, King Roman formed the Europan Monarchy in exile by federating the legally accrued Principality of Moldova and the Grand Duchy of Latvia with his inherited Grand Duchy of (Greater) Lithuania that included Belarus and Ukraine.
The Capital of the Europan Monarchy in exile is Vilnius/Darwin, and the constituent countries of Europa currently have their own civil governments.
King Roman is Sovereign of the Europan Monarchy in exile, and reigns from Darwin Australia.
"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)
King Roman's monarchic goal is to be constitutionally/fully recognized as Monarch of the constituent territories - Grand Duke of Greater Lithuania (including Belarus and Ukraine), Grand Duke of Latvia (Courland and Livonia), and Prince of Moldova.
"The absent sovereign remains the de jure government of the country [even though they are never officially or even unofficially recognized]." (Oppenheimer, "Governments and Authorities in Exile," American Journal of International Law, p. 571) (Hersch Lauterpacht, C. J. Greenwood, International Law Reports, p. 559)
The Truth about Today's Monarchy in Exile
"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)
Recognized Monarchs of today may not appreciate how extremely fortunate they are. They are born into wealth and splendour. They do not have to concern themselves with the difficulties of having to restore their Realm. They are handed everything on a platter. In fact, they ignore the poor monarch in exile.
Recognized Monarchs tend not, if ever, to lend a helping hand to a fellow royal sovereign in exile, although the recognized Monarchs are often blessed with more than enough means to do so. It is convenient for them to forget how their ancestors obtained their wealth, from spoils of war and from sale of titles.
The ancestors of today's Monarchs sold titles, for example King James 1 of England. They did so for serious amounts of money, for example today's equivalent of $150,000 for a Baronetcy from King James 1 ... and today's Monarchs have benefited.
When King Henry 8 made himself Head of the Church in England, he sacked the monasteries and convents to fill his coffers with their wealth.

The Goals of His Imperial Majesty King Roman I
King Roman seeks, in return for reward to you, a gift from you in order to:
(1) restore and create Monarchy (any legal and other ideas to this end?);
(2) construct and test a radio-controlled small- scale model of MOONSHIP PHOENIX and then the full-scale spacecraft (comments invited);
(3) produce a movie of his books The Last Symbol and Moon Shock (what do you think? Want to have a producer credit?); and
(4) help starving orphans and poor everwhere (King Roman founded, was first president of, and helped orphanages and poor, and asylum seekers, through the Filipino Club Darwin over 23 years).
