Book cover of Sealand: The True Story of the World’s Most Stubborn Micronation and Its Eccentric Royal Family by Dylan Taylor-Lehmanby Dylan Taylor-Lehman

A swashbuckling tale of international intrigue, armed battles, and Swingin’ Sixties radio pirates over a fifty-year history of the world’s smallest rebel nation.

In 1967, a retired army major and self-made millionaire named Paddy Roy Bates cemented his family’s place in history when he inaugurated himself ruler of the Principality of Sealand, a tiny dominion of the high seas. And so began the peculiar story of the world’s most stubborn micronation on a World War II anti-aircraft gun platform off the British coast.
