The Austenasian capital of Wrythe yesterday saw its second tourist visit.

His Imperial Majesty Emperor Jonathan I met Mike Lewis at Carshalton railway station, from which he gave him a guided tour of the Carshalton Nations which concluded at Wrythe.

Princess Consort Hannah joined the Emperor and Mr Lewis towards the end of the tour.

Mr Lewis was shown Orly, the site of Rushymia and the Midget Empire, and Muschamp Alley, all sites which are relevant to the Carshalton Nations and their history, with the Emperor giving commentary as they went.

They then walked to Wrythe, where – by this point joined by Princess Consort Hannah – the tour concluded with lunch.

At the Imperial Residence in Wrythe, Mr Lewis met with Emperor Father Terry, Emperor Mother Margaret, Crown Princess Caroline and imperial pets Edd and Rosie.

He was also shown various documents and artefacts of historical interest, presented with a gift of an Austenasian postcard, and signed a guestbook newly acquired for the Imperial Residence.

This is the second time a tourist has visited Wrythe, the first having been Jonny Blair in March last year.

The Emperor’s 21st birthday party took place yesterday in the Imperial Residence.

A party was held in the Imperial Residence yesterday evening to celebrate the 21st birthday of Emperor Jonathan I.

The Imperial Family were joined by relatives and family friends for the party, including Deputy Prime Minister Countess Eritoshi and her sister Lady Imogen, one of the current two consuls.

The Emperor received several birthday cards and presents from the guests at the party.

The actual birthday of the Emperor was on 13 October, which was observed with the opening of presents and a meal out with the other members of the immediate Imperial Family. The party was held yesterday instead of on Tuesday so that more people would be available to attend.

 

Imperial Library founded

In celebration of Imperium Day, Emperor Jonathan I has announced the foundation of the Imperial Library.

The Emperor founded the library by an edict this afternoon. Based in the Imperial Residence, the Library contains numerous books and documents, including many relevant to the history of the Empire.

The Imperial Library is in three parts – Section A, the largest, is situated in the Imperial Quarters; Section B, the smallest, in Parliament Hall; and the books in Section C are in storage in the Imperial Attic.

From now on, a copy of every piece of Austenasian legislation will be deposited in the Imperial Library. An online catalogues of the items in the library can be seen here.

Imperium Day is observed every 4 June, in celebration of when, in that day in 2011, the then German Emperor recognised the imperial rank of the Austenasian Throne.

In other news, the Emperor used the edict establishing the Imperial Library to also announce yesterday – 3 June – to have been the first day of Summer 2015 in the Austenasian calendar.

Flagpole installed on Imperial Residence

The Austenasian Star flying from the Imperial Residence late Tuesday afternoon.

A rudimentary flagpole has been installed on the roof of the Imperial Residence.

Prior to this, whenever the national flag was flown from the Imperial Residence, it was required to be held in place by the closed windows of the Imperial Quarters. The flagpole will enable said windows to be opened during summer yet with the flag still flying.

The flag currently flying from the Imperial Residence was presented as a gift to Austenasia in August 2011.

Four more flags were recently ordered from MicroFlag, a company run by the Russian micronation Lostisland, and will be sent throughout the Empire so that more areas can fly the national flag.
