History

The Sovereign Municipality of Ameristralia was founded on Friday 13 August 2021 by His Sovereign Lord David for the purpose of teaching his children organisation, diplomacy, public speaking, delegation, and management.

Initially, the municipality was formed as a semi-presidential parliamentary municipal republic; however, early in September 2021, the structure was changed to a constitutional monarchy, in the form of a mayorship.

Brooke's title changed to its current form, His Sovereign Lord. The family became known as the Sovereign Family with each child holding a hereditary peerage of a Barony.

Mrs Brooke is officially styled, Her Sovereign Grace the Duchess of Brookfield, in her own right.

Since 2 October, Her Sovereign Lady The Sovereign Countess Grosvenor was decreed as the Sovereign Heir by His Sovereign Lord David.
