This Little Girl Wanted To Be A Princess, So Her Dad Legally Laid Claim To A Kingdom In Africa! Here's How He Did It!
What little girl doesn’t want to be a princess??
For seven-year-old Emily Heaton, her royal wishes came true (on her birthday no less!), all thanks to dear old dad!
Jeremiah Heaton not only made his daughter a princess, he made himself a king! Last month, he traveled through Africa to an 800-square-mile patch of desert in between Egypt and Sudan. The land, known as Bir Tawil by the locals, has laid unclaimed after a border dispute between the two nations. So, on Emily’s 7th bday, her dad planted a flag that she designed (four stars and a crown) into a rocky hill and made this land his own!
He's now calling this the Kingdom of North Sudan.
