King Wilhelm-Rudolf von Elphberg

The late King Wilhelm-Rudolf Franz Josef von Elphberg was born March 15, 1948. He came to the throne in 1959 following the tragic death of King Stephan and Queen Charlotte. After receiving a degree in Astrophysics, His Majesty became a pilot and flew with the United States Air Force for a short time. In 1970 he married Anastasia Sophia Maria Helena von Rubenroth, Princess Royal of Lutha. It is with great sadness that we announce his passing on May 17, 2010. Rumors persist that the Swiss Consortium was involved in his sudden and unexplained death.

Queen Anastasia Sophia Maria Helena von Elphberg

Her Majesty Queen Anastasia and King Wilhelm-Rudolf met at a reception aiding Ruritanian Houses of Worship. Their friendship and equal determination to assist in the preservation and defense of all religions, Churches, Synagogues, and Mosques everywhere, enabled them to meet frequently. These continued meetings led to romance and marriage between their two Houses. They were wed for 40 years and had never given up their defense of the freedom to worship or their love of the arts historical buildings or the People of the Kingdom.

Grand Duchess Julianna Elizabeth Aurora Eugenia von Elphberg

Grand Duchess Julianna Elizabeth Aurora Eugenia von Elphberg is the heir apparent to the throne of Ruritania. The Grand Duchess was born in the United States, while the King was in training to be a pilot in the United States Air Force. After an extensive education including studies at the Sorbonne and a degree from Oxford University, her Royal Highness is now working closely with the Minister of Finance for Ruritania. Her work in the promotion of film preservation is ongoing and has won an award from the Film Institute.

 

Grand Duchess Lydia Sophie Tatianna Mortitia von Elphberg

The Grand Duchess Lydia Sofia Tatianna Mortitia von Elphberg is second in line to the Throne.  Her Serene Highness is also Minister of Foreign Affairs, the reigning Miss MicroWorld since 2015, and hosts the micronational video podcast, Mortitia's Micronational Minutes, on which she interviews different diplomats and dignitaries of other micronations hence dubbing her the "Oprah Winfrey of the MicroSphere."

She has been called the "Helen of Troy of Micronationalism" after having started many "wars" while fighting to end intolerance against intolerance and disrespect for people of all walks of life. The Grand Duchess also co-hosts a biennial Mini MicroSphere Summit held in Harrisburg, PA.  In 2018 she helped draft and sign a diplomatic treaty, the Paxton Church Accord, between several leading micronations to be respectful of inalienable rights for all individuals, the proper etiquette, and behaviors of the community to promote tolerance and acceptance. 


Lydia is globally known as the Anti-Squrriel Grand Duchess because of her determination and hard work to bring awareness to the unwitting public of the dangers these vile vermin have plotted against humans. 

Prince Nicolas Alexander von Elphberg

Prince Nicolas Alexander von Elphberg is currently studying excelling in his classes for robotic engineering. His Royal Highness is an excellent dancer, creative producer, and is also a scholar in learning dead languages, such as Latin. He is in the process of starting an e-sports league for the MicroSphere.

Princess Charlotte Dorothea von Elphberg

Princess Charlotte Dorethea von Elphberg, a member of the Royal Council, is also a trained sniper.  The Princess plays various instruments, such as the piano and various guitars.  Her various work can be seen on Uka GiGi

As a member of the Royal Council, she helps to review and advise the Queen on which applications and requests for diplomatic relations, citizenship, titles, etc.

Following in her mother's footsteps, she's training to be in the diplomatic field. Her Royal Highness is looking forward to her future work within the Moccii Minor Hall as a way of helping other children in the MicroSphere, who may be feeling shy announcing to their peers about their micronation, or perhaps even their parent's.  She is also a member of the Planning Board for the Mini MicroSphere Summit, a social gathering for micronationalists held in April of even years in Harrisburg, PA.
