Further expansion for Wildflower Meadows

Maybridge spans the River Dee, and is connected by the Queen’s Park Bridge.

The Principality of Wildflower Meadows annexed yet more land yesterday, following expansions in October and November last year.

A strip of land connecting its three largest territories was claimed by Princess Hannah yesterday afternoon, with the approval of Emperor Jonathan I.

Maybridge, as the new county has been named, consists of two areas of land on either side of the River Dee, connected by the Queen’s Park Bridge.

While the northern area includes historical landmarks such as a Roman amphitheatre and the ruins of the city’s original cathedral, the area south of the river consists mainly of residential properties.

The new land claim connects the county of Grosvenor Park to the two duchies of Deva Victrix and Chester Meadows, the latter two being the original land claim of the Principality.

A map of the three territories now connected by Maybridge (the new claim in red) can be seen here.

Expansion for Wildflower Meadows

Princess Hannah claims Wandleside while holding the flag and sceptre of Wildflower Meadows.

The Principality of Wildflower Meadows expanded yesterday for a second time since its foundation in May.

A 550 feet-long stretch of the River Wandle and an adjoining area of grass and trees were claimed by Princess Hannah and named Wandleside.

Wandleside is situated mere feet away from the Princess’ home in south London, where she was staying having travelled from her university accommodation in Chester for the mid-term reading week.

The new annexation has been recognised by Princess Hannah’s fiancé, Emperor Jonathan I, who was present at the annexation and co-founded the principality with her earlier in the year.

Wandleside is the first area to be claimed by Wildflower Meadows within the vicinity of the Carshalton Nations, having previously been based entirely in Chester.

The principality also expanded last month with the annexation of Grosvenor Park in Chester.
