The Commonwealth of Dracul takes pride in fostering a rich tapestry of Romanian, Russian, and German cultures. Within this context, renowned figures from these cultural backgrounds are celebrated as heroes by the people of Dracul. Explore the inspiring stories of these figures and their contributions to the Romanian, Russian, and German peoples.
Notably, the name 'Dracul' draws inspiration from the historical Prince of Wallachia, Vlad III, underscoring his significance as a national hero in the eyes of the Dracul community.
Established on September 25, 2017, in Houston, Texas, by visionaries Dmitri Howie, Stephen Luke, and Mark Millner, Dracul emerged from the collective aspiration to create a micronation of significance. The genesis of this micronation project took root when Stephen Luke delved into research on micronations through various platforms, including YouTube and online forums. United by a shared vision, the trio aimed for Dracul to transcend its initial achievements, serving as a testament to the potential of micronations to achieve remarkable growth.
Originally proposed by Stephen Luke and warmly embraced by Dmitri Howie and Mark Millner, the idea envisioned a micronation capable of reaching great heights, challenging the notion that the scope of micronations was limited. Today, the legacy of Dracul stands as a testament to the collective vision and determination of its founders.
In April 2018, the former Director of Dracul Intelligence, Al Fare, initiated the formation of a group with the explicit purpose of targeting and removing religious individuals within Dracul. Upon detection of this activity by the Federal Government, Al Fare was advised to cease his mission. However, he declined to cooperate and instead established the Dracul Confederacy, asserting it as a new territory of Dracul. It is essential to note that neither Dracul nor any other micronation officially recognized this proclaimed region.
A conflict ensued in mid-April, concluding on May 9, 2018, with the apprehension of Al Fare and his associates. Following this incident, Al Fare was subsequently banished from the community, and commemorative events are held annually to reflect upon and learn from this episode.
In the year 2022, the Founder's Committee of Dracul initiated a comprehensive envisioning process for the nation, aiming to establish a stronger connection to the historical royal bloodline of Vlad Tepes. Through a series of deliberations, discussions, and democratic votes, the collective decision was reached to transition into a Ceremonial Monarchy. This significant development was formalized by Dracul's Parliament on September 5, marking a historic milestone for the Commonwealth.
To facilitate the welcoming of the incoming Prince, pivotal changes were introduced, transitioning the roles of President and Vice President to Chancellor and Vice Chancellor. This adjustment allowed for the Prince to assume the crucial position of Head of State, aligning with the ceremonial nature of the newly embraced monarchical structure.
