Preamble      

For centuries, the Fiefs of the Channel Islands have stood as bastions of autonomy and resilience, with a storied history that traces its roots back to the Duchy of Normandy and the Kingdom of the West Franks or West Francia . The islands' distinctive character, culture, and traditions have been nurtured and preserved throughout the ages. Today, as we take this momentous step, we invoke the enduring spirit of our forebears who cherished our islands' unique identity. 

The Inheritance of Fief Blondel, Blondelenburg and West Francia      

In this declaration, we assert our legitimate claim to the legacy of the Kingdom of West Francia. The Kingdom of West Francia, a realm of rich history and culture, found its demise with the rise of revolutionary ideals in continental France, leading to the banishment of the nobility during the tumultuous period of the French Revolution. As the inheritors of this once-great kingdom, we carry forward its legacy as custodians of its history, traditions, and values.    Presently, the BBC and other news is unclear if the State or Crown maintains any rights to foreshore or waters in Guernsey.

The Establishment of the Channel Island Micronation of Blondelenburg of West Francia      

With this declaration, we establish the Channel Island Micronation as a sovereign entity, standing proudly among the family of nations. Blondelenburg and West Francia shall be characterized by principles of democracy, individual rights, and a deep respect for the rule of law. We, the people of the Channel Island Micronation, solemnly commit to upholding these ideals as the foundation of our governance.    

The Blondelenburg and West Francia Royal Monarchy      

We proudly announce the revival of the West Francia royal monarchy, which shall reign as the cornerstone of our cultural heritage and symbol of our historical ties to the Kingdom of West Francia. The West Francia royal monarchy shall serve as a unifying force, reflecting our commitment to tradition, continuity, and the preservation of our unique identity. The capitalof West Francia would be in Fief Blondel's lands with an expanded territory via treaty in Stoborough, Ennerdale, and Annaly.

Recognition of Autonomy      

While acknowledging our historical relationship with the British Crown, we declare our autonomy and self-governing status as the Channel Island Micronation under international laws if herein legal and required. We shall continue to maintain our close ties with the  Crown while also pursuing diplomatic relations with other nations to foster mutual understanding, cooperation, and collaboration. At this juncture, Fief Blondel is the only Seigneury of the Channel islands claiming ECS rights, territorial waters, seasted, seabed, islands and rocks on its coastlines.

Conclusion      

In bearing witness to this declaration, we, the people of the Channel Island Micronation, reaffirm our commitment to our cherished values, traditions, and the enduring legacy of the Kingdom of West Francia. We stand united in our pursuit of a prosperous and harmonious future, where our cultural heritage and autonomy shall be preserved for generations to come.    

May this declaration serve as an enduring testament to our determination, resilience, and the indomitable spirit of the Channel Islands.    

Signed on this day, the Jan 1st 2019

To this date, The island of Guernsey is among the last remnants of the historical territories associated with the Duchy of Normandy that still maintain the practice of granting noble titles. These islands have a unique historical and legal status, which allows them a degree of autonomy and self-governance. This autonomy has enabled them to retain certain historical customs and practices, including the recognition of noble titles. The Channel Islands, including Guernsey, were historically part of the Duchy of Normandy, which was a medieval duchy in northern France. When William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy, became William the Conqueror, King of England, in 1066, the Channel Islands remained possessions of the English Crown.

Kingdom of Franks - History

In  history , West Francia ( Medieval Latin :  Francia occidentalis )  or the Kingdom of the West Franks  ( Latin :  regnum Francorum occidentalium ) refers to the western part of the  Frankish Empire  established by "Carl the Great" or  Charlemagne . Francia was the forerunner of the future  Kingdom of France and existed from 843 to 987.  [1]  West Francia emerged from the partition of the  Carolingian Empire  in 843 under the   Treaty of Verdun  following the death of  Charlemagne's  son,  Louis the Pious . 

West Francia emerged from the    Carolingian Empire  (800–887) was a Anglo-Germanic  Frankish  - dominated empire in western and central Europe during the Early Middle Ages  . It was ruled by the Carolingian dynasty  , which had ruled as kings of the Franks  since 751 and as kings of the Lombards   in Italy from 774. In 800, the Frankish king Carl the Great or Charlemagne   was crowned emperor in Rome   by Pope Leo III  in an effort to transfer   theRoman Empire  from the Byzantine Empire   to Western Europe. The Carolingian Empire is sometimes considered the first phase in the history of the Holy Roman Empire   where Normandy and the Channel Islands rose in power as a key part of the Holy Roman Empire  [3] 

Prior to Carl the Great, The Merovingian dynasty   was the ruling family of theFranks  from around the middle of the 5th Chi Rho of Western Roman Empire century until 751.  [1]   They first appear as "Kings of the Franks" in the Roman army of northernGaul  . By 509 they had united all the Franks and northern Gallo-Romans under their rule. They conquered most of Gaul, defeating the Visigoths  (507) and the Burgundians  (534), and also extended their rule into Raetia  (537). In Germania  , the Alemanni  ,Bavarii  and Saxons  accepted their lordship. The Merovingian realm was the largest and most powerful of the states of western Europe following the breaking up of the empire of Theodoric the Great  . 

West Francia, also known as the Kingdom of the West Franks, was a medieval kingdom in Western Europe that existed primarily from the 9th to the 10th century. It encompassed a significant portion of what is now modern-day France and parts of Belgium, Luxembourg, and the western regions of present-day Germany and the Channel Islands.

Formation of West Francia:
West Francia emerged from the division of the Carolingian Empire in the aftermath of the Treaty of Verdun in 843. This treaty split the Carolingian Empire into three parts, with West Francia being the most prominant. It was initially ruled by the Carolingian kings, and its capital shifted between various cities, including Paris.

W est Francia, extended further north and south than modern metropolitan France, but it did not extend as far east but included Normandy, the Manche and the Channel Islands. It did not include such future French holdings as Lorraine, the County and Kingdom of Burgundy(the duchy was already a part of West Francia), Alsace and Provence in the east and southeast for example. It also did not include the Brittany peninsula in the west. In addition, by the 10th century the authority of the West Frankish monarchs was greatly reduced. This was contrasted by the evergrowing power of their vassals over their large and usually territorially contiguous fiefs

The last Carolingians: Lothair and Louis V 

The 13-year old Lothair of France inherited all the lands of his father in 954. By this time they were so small that the Carolingian practice of dividing lands among the sons was not followed and his brother Charles received nothing. In 966 Lothair married Emma, stepdaughter of his maternal uncle Otto I. Despite this, in August 978 Lothair attacked the old imperial capital AachenOtto II retaliated by attacking Paris, but was defeated by the combined forces of king Lothar and nobles and peace was signed in 980, ending the brief Franco-German war

Lothar managed to increase his power, but this was reversed with the coming of age of Hugh Capet, who began forming new alliances of nobles and eventually was elected as king in 987 after Lothair and his son and successor Louis V of France had both died prematurely, traditionally marking the end of the French branch of Carolingian dynasty as well as the end of West Francia as a kingdom in the hands of Carolingians. Hugh Capet would be the first ruler of a new royal house, the House of Capet, who would rule France through the High Middle Ages.

Royal charters applying to the Channel Islands - Wikipedia 

 There is  matter of ownership of the foreshore and seabed of the territorial sea after extension to 12 nm.  Insofar as Guernsey is concerned ownership of the majority of the foreshore and the seabed of the territorial sea surrounding Guernsey was vested in the Seigneurs/Fiefs and the Crown; but the Crown may have released any of their Crown water rights to  feif owners which includes the Fief Seigneurs.  In the Les Pas case, the government had to pay 10 MIllion the Seigneur for rights to the foresshore and ocean access.   This is different from the situation in the Isle of Man and Jersey for example where, in the case of the Isle of Man, ownership of the seabed is vested in the Isle of Man government and, in the case of Jersey, ownership of both the foreshore and the seabed is now vested in the people of Jersey (as represented by Her Majesty's Attorney General for Jersey).  


The "Les Pas Holdings" case pertains to the rights of feudal seigneurs over the foreshore, beach access, ocean access, and territorial waters. In this case, the issue revolved around whether feudal seigneurs had exclusive rights to these coastal areas and waters. The case ultimately reaffirmed the historical rights of feudal seigneurs, confirming their ownership of the foreshore, beach, and ocean access, in alignment with their unique legal status as custodians of coastal resources. It established a legal precedent supporting the alignment of historical ownership rights with relevant legal provisions regarding these coastal and marine areas.  Thus, the owners of fiefs maintain their 1000 year uninterrupted claim to fishing, seaweed, beaches, foreshore, seasted, ocean access and territorial waters extending from the territory located on the shores of Guernsey. 

Monarchs and Principalities 

As with Sultans, Lords, Fiefs, and Monarchs throughout  Arabia, Pacific, Africa and other regions, the rights to the territorial waters, fishing, reefs, etc extend 200 miles or so on most maps.

The  Bailiwickof Guernsey  (French :  Bailliage de Guernesey   Guernésiais   Bailliage dé Guernési  ) is a self-governing British Crown Dependency  off the coast ofNormandy  , France, comprising several of theChannel Islands  . It has a total land area of 78 square kilometres (30 sq mi) and an estimated total population of 67,334.

The Fiefs of Guernsey are co-equal with the Crown or King Charles on the land holdings. The Crown Estate  is a collection of lands and holdings in theUnited Kingdom  belonging to theBritish monarch  as acorporation sole , making it "the sovereign's public estate", which is neither government property nor part of the monarch's private estate.  [2]  [3]  [4]  [5] 

Wikipedia articles say that:The sovereign has an official, but not personal claim to the estate, is not involved with the management or administration of the estate, and has no control of its affairs. For all practical purposes it is state property,  [7]  and in part funds the monarchy. With this statement said, then the fief owners are sole owners of the foreshore and territorial waters as the Crown may have abandoned the rights.

 

Foreshore Approximately 55% of the UK's foreshore is owned by the Crown Estate; other owners of UK foreshore include theDuchy of Cornwalland theDuchy of Lancaster. In Orkney, Guernsey, and Shetland, the Crown does not claim ownership of foreshore. [76]


While Guernsey may claim 12 miles, the Seigneur of Fief Thomas Blondel claims 200 miles from 3 different foreshore areas in Guernsey. Beyond the 12-mile limit, Guernsey's fishing rights are subject to international agreements and negotiations with neighboring countries, primarily France, as well as the European Union and Fief Blondel also lays claim to all fishing rights in tandem with international law under the Monaco Protocols with France. These agreements govern access to fishing grounds and the allocation of quotas for various fish species. The specifics of these agreements can change over time and may vary depending on the political and economic circumstances.  Since, Fief Blondel was not a part of any of these territorial waters, seabed, seasted, island, and reef/rocks agreements, the owner of these foreshores and waters maintains independent and sovereign rights over any and all lands, rocks, reefs, seabed, fishing, oil and gas, minerals, port, and marina rights related to such territory.

  Sovereign Legal Rights of Private Noble  Fief Owners

In 2018, the Fief of Blondel Claimed up to 200 miles of seasted and seabed under international law plus any other seasted or seasted or continental shelf from its 3 beaches including all beaches, reefs, rocks, and islands that apear at normal, hight, or low tide extending out to sea using the Monaco Protocols for Territorial Waters.

The Fief Blondel and Eperons and its Seigneur are registered directly with the Royal Courts of the Crown and The Duke of Normandy and King Charles.

Von dem großen Wikinger Rollo bis zur heutigen Zeit unter der Herrschaft von König Charles haben diese Inseln feudales Recht und Gerichte auf den Lehen und Inselküsten ermöglicht. Das Fief Blondel und Eperons sowie sein Seigneur sind direkt bei den Königlichen Gerichten der Krone, dem Herzog der Normandie und König Charles registriert. Ganz ähnlich wie die Seigneurs von Monaco, die Herren von Frankreich, Andorra, dem Souveränen Gozo von Malta, dem Souveränen Militärorden von Malta (SMOM), dem päpstlichen Monarchen des Vatikanstaats und dem Herrn von Sark werden die alten Lehen auf den Kanalinseln sowohl vom Adelsrecht als auch vom Völkerrecht anerkannt.  Kommissar Dr. George Mentz wurde im Dezember 2017 zum 26.
