Jeremiah Heaton and his daughter,Emily were playing one day and Emily asked him , "Dad , will I ever be a real princess ? " and Jeremiah as any dad would respond , said that "she will be a princess one day". Jeremiah knew that he can't make an empty promise to his daughter, so he sat down and searched on google for unclaimed land in the world and his search took him to Bir Tawil , a 795 sq. mile area which is claimed by no government.

Bir Tawil

Bir Tawil

Bir Tawil is a land lying between Sudan and Egypt,which is unclaimed because of the dispute between Sudan and Egypt.It's neighbouring Halaib traingle is fertile and both countries claim that peace as theirs ,so if anyone claims Bir Tawil as their land , they would have to lose Halaib Traingle.

He presented this kingdom to his daughter , Princess Emily. He showed the world that parents can go to any extent for fulfilling the wishes of their younger ones . Heaton has to go through legal process and receive recognition from Sudan,Egypt and the United Nations. Heaton want to turn this land into agricultural production center and his only wish which he conveyed through facebook is everyone should call his daughter as princess Emily. We hope Princess Emily and King Heaton have more cherished memories
