"KINGDOM" OF REDONDA INFORMATION

The uninhabited Island of Redonda lies in the Caribbean Sea, latitude 16 56' North, longitude 62 21' West, about thirty-four miles WSW of Antigua and approximately fifteen miles NW of Montserrat. It is about one mile long by one third of a mile wide, rising to a height of 971 feet, and is the rocky and uninhabitable remnant of an extinct volcanic cone. It was discovered by Christopher Columbus at 8 p.m. on the evening of November 12th, 1493, on his second voyage of exploration. Because of its apparently-rounded shape, he named it Santa Maria la Redonda, but did not attempt to land.

With a sum total of no residents, Redonda, the third island that makes up the island Nations of Antigua, Barbuda and Redonda, has been in contention for many years. There are seemingly no less than four kings all claiming they are the Real King of Redonda. Read on to discover the confusions and claims to the throne that make up the amusing history of the micronation that is the Kingdom of Redonda.
