Horvatia, officially the Kingdom of Horvatia, was a constitutional monarchy located in South America, headquartered in São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo, Brazil. Founded by Weslley Nascimento on 10 March 2016 through the Annex I of the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016, its capital was Agram and the kingdom was ruled in personal union with the Kingdom of Ruthenia.
The Kingdom of Horvatia was nominally an autonomous kingdom within the Karno-Ruthenian Empire, created in 2016 following the Horvatian–Ruthenian Settlement. It was associated with the Ruthenian Kingdom within the dual Karno-Ruthenian state, being a Crown Land of Ruthenia and the kingdom is ruled by the Emperor-King of Karnia-Ruthenia under his title as "King of Horvatia". The King's appointed steward was the Ban of Horvatia until 2017 and again from 2018 to 2020, when the kingdom was transferred to the Kingdom of Taslavia.
Etimology[edit | edit source]
In Hungarian, Horvatia is referred to the word Croatia, in order to emphasize the familiarity of the micronation with the Hungarian culture practiced in the Kingdom of Ruthenia without loose its inspiration in Croatian history.
History[edit | edit source]
The Kingdom of Horvatia was created in 2016, when the former independent project of Horvatia and its responsible decided to join Ruthenia to establish a union of micronations with same objectives. The Founder of Horvatia, Governor and Vice-King Weslley of Agram contacted King Oscar of Ruthenia in order to unify the projects; he confirmed the subordination of Horvatia to Ruthenia in 2016 with signing of Horvatian-Ruthenian union, an annex of the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016.
With this compromise, Horvatia became part of the Kingdom of Ruthenia in personal union and the Ruthenian Government controlled the military, the financial system, legislation and administration, customs and Foreign Affairs, acclaiming Oscar of Ruthenia as King of Horvatia. Weslley of Agram was appointed as Ban of Horvatia in the following day.
From August 2017, the House of Agram instilled nationalist sentiments in the local population to force its own rise to power. Through long negotiation and good relations between the Imperial Crown the then Ban, the Agrams would ascend to the Throne of Horvatia. In the early morning of 03 September, Oscar I abdicated the throne in favor of Prince Joseph Cicero of Agram, father of Ban of Horvatia and head of the ducal house. Horvatia continued a country within the Empire, but the post of Ban of Horvatia was declared descontinued.
With strong popular pressure to verify the progress promised through the change in the reigning house of Horvatia, King Joseph Cicero abdicated in favor of his son, Duke Weslley of Agram, 25 days after taking the throne. Unable to verify any measure that could sustain his reign, King Weslley abdicated on 03 October, having reigned for only 05 days. He resigned by returning the throne to the Emperor-King of Karnia-Ruthenia. After the event, the ducal family, and especially the Duke of Agram, abstained from participating in national politics, being exonerated from their posts and leaving for exile.
On 13 March 2018, to promote the development of the region, Oscar I appointed a foreign as Ban of Horvatia. The first foreign Ban was Carlo, Prince of Lamburg. p align= justify> On 30 December 2020, the Imperial Council, decided about territorial changes within the Empire and the Kingdom of Horvatia, due its location and proximity with the Kingdom of Taslavia and lack of interest in be retained as part of the Empire, were agreed to be transferred to Taslavia on 31 December 2020, at 23:59 p.m. Oscar I would keep the now mediatized title of King of Horvatia, the office of Ban would be extinguished and Horvatia would be incorporated to the Governorate of Idolines, under the rule of the King of Taslavia.

Government and politics[edit | edit source]
The Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016 created the Dual Monarchy. Under the Compromise, Karnia and Ruthenia each had separate parliaments that passed and maintained separate laws. Each region had its own government, headed by its own prime minister. The "common monarchy" consisted of the emperor-king and the common ministers of foreign affairs, defense and finance in Persenburg.
The Compromise confirmed Horvatia's union with Ruthenia and the Horvatian-Ruthenian compromise in 2016 gave to Horvatians a special status in Ruthenia. The agreement granted to the Horvatians autonomy over their internal affairs. The Horvatian Ban would now be nominated by the Ruthenian prime minister and appointed by the king. Although the compromise provided a measure of political autonomy to Horvatia, the micronation are subordinated politically and economically to Ruthenia.
Holidays and Culture[edit | edit source]
Carpatho-Horvatian Language[edit | edit source]
In January of 2018, the Carpatho-Horvatian language was presented to the Emperor-King Oscar of Karnia-Ruthenia, by King Christian I. Carpatho-Horvatian is a Slavic-based language, including various elements from Serbo-Croatian and Russian.
The name Carpatho-Horvatian comes from names of Horvatia, and Carpathia, another crown territory of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire. Carpatho-Horvatian was created to be used in both Carpathia, and Horvatia, as the two Kingdoms are heavily Slavic-based in both culture, and territorial claims.
