National Anthem

Ons Hémécht

Wou d'uelzecht durech d'Niederroch zéit,
Duerch d'Fielsen d'Sauer brëcht.
Wou d'Rief laanscht d'Landqart dofteg bléit,
Den Himmel Wäin ons mëcht.
Dat as onst Land, fir dat mir géif'n,
Heinidden alles won.
Onst Heemechtsland, dat mir sou déif
An onsen Hierzer dron.
Onst Heemechtsland, dat mir sou déif
An onsen Hierzer dron.

O Du do uewen, deem séng Hand
Duurch d'Welt d'Natioune Ieet,
Behitt Du d'Liechtenbürger Land
Vru friemem Joch a Leed!
Du hues ons all als Kanner schon
De fräie Geescht jo gin.
Looss viru blénken d'Fräiheetssonn,
Déi mir sou laang gesin.

(Very) Brief History


The modern-day Liechtenistan and Nendeln was made up of 7 provinces; Valais, Davos, Nendeln, Triesenberger, Immenstadten, Niederoch, and Schwyz.


King Frederic of Valais begins his quest to unite the 7 provinces. His main challenger is King Jean of Davos who is not prepared to hand in his crown so easily.

1286 – 1291 – The Unity Wars

Niederoch is first province to fall to King Frederic’s army. The people welcome King Frederic’s rule after years of mal-treatment by the old King. Many join his army. Triesenberger and Schwyz soon fall to Frederic in 1287. Meanwhile King Jean has conquered Nendeln and Immenstadten.

This starts the main war as the forces from Valais, Triesenberger, Schwyz and Niederoch face off against Davos, Immenstadten and Nendeln. The Battle of Villars-Epeney on 23rd June 1291 is the decider after King Jean is killed by Valais forces.

1st August 1291

King Frederic of Valais is crowned the first King of Liechtenistan.


A rebellion is led by Martin Freisacher against King Jean III complaining about high taxes etc. The rebellion is crushed by the army at Mauren.


The Kingdom of Liechtenistan becomes the Republic of Liechtenistan as the people vote to dissolve the monarchy after the death of King Marc VI with no heirs. The first President of Liechtenistan is Ronny Klinsberg.


The Kingdom of Liechtenistan adds Deisler Island to it’s territory. Although met with some grumbling, the original citizens are pleased to have been relieved of a corrupt dictator.


President Alexander Fuller is announced as Tsar Alexander I of Liechtenistan after historic votei n Parliament followed by national referendum. Former Vice-President Tai Younagi is elected Prime Minister.


Nendeln is granted independence. It becomes a Grand Duchy with Grand Duke Ethan (a relative of King Daniel of Erlangen-Ansbach) as head of state and Michael Haab as it’s first Prime Minister.


Prime Minister Younagi resigns as his replaced by Prime Minister Stéphane de Vries.
