Messages of Condolences:

Here are some messages of condolences that we have received from our readers (If you wish, you can send us your message at this address: seborgapress@gmail.com).
The Sunday New York Times
carried the sad news of the death of one of the great statesmen of this brief century,
Prince Giorgio of Seborga.
During his lengthy, elected tenure, Prince Giorgio set an example
of leadership that others should emulate.
He accepted no salary, he never invaded another country, never taxed his subjects,
and, according to the Times ”He took to the throne with panache, wearing sash,
sword and large rosette medallions as he held court at the Bianca Azurra bar.”
What other prince, prime minister, president, pope or potentate,
living or dead, has ever been described with such dignity.
Here in Spokane, Washington (sometimes referred to as Spokanistan
because of the rutted and pot-holed roads, falling into disrepair
thanks to our nation’s empire building in various Middle Eastern countries)
patrons of the Blue Spark bar will gather tonight
to drink Mimosas in fond memory of His Tremendousness.
The prince may be gone, but long live the principality.
Long Live Seborga!

Thomas P. Keefe, Esquire
To Authority of Principality Seborga.

With deep grief we have apprehended a sad message about death of
His Tremendousness Giorgio I, the Prince of the Principality of Seborga.
Death His Highness Prince Giorgio I is huge loss for Principality of Seborga,
citizens of the Principality Seborga, the European Monarchy,
but also to all people who known and respected His Tremendousness Giorgio I.
It pains us to have to say it. Has left the world the person
who has made many kind of chivalrous and illustrious deeds for the World of Nobles,
New Small State, New and Old Monarchy, The cause of Peace - it is his life-work.
He was the careful person, the close friend and true comrade,
the fine manager and the wise monarch.
The heart hotly loving the God, the citizens and people close to Him, has stopped.
Have stopped his heart, but undying bright light of its heart,
will always shine to us road to the future.
This light will remind us of His kind affairs for the blessing of people living on this planet. Nowadays its Soul stays before the God.
We shall pray, that Lord has accepted His Tremendousness Giorgio I under the wing
and has protected from all hardship. L
et memory of this remarkable person for ever remains in our hearts.

Your excellencies,
I am saddened to hear of the passing of Prince Giorgio
and pass my condolences onto his family and his nation.
There is nothing I can say that will soften the pain of his absence,
but know that he will live forever in the pages of history.
He was an inspiration to me and to many others like me.
May he rest in peace.
I have decreed that Nov. 25th become a national holiday within Vikesland in his honor.
It will be known as Prince Giorgio day from henceforth.
My deepest sympathies of mine and my nations goes out to you.
Giorgio we shall miss you.

Prince Christopher I
Principality of Vikesland


To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time topluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a timeto build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

It is with deep sadness that we have to announce the sad news of the death of our beloved Prince George I of Seborga.

His Highness died this Wednesday morning, 25 November, at the age of 73 after a long illness.

The news of his death has shocked many friends and sympathizers of his cause around the world and expressions of solidarity and condolences are beginning to arrive in Seborga, at the local authorities and at the diplomatic posts of the Principality around the world.

Giorgio I of Seborga was declared Prince in 1963 and re-elected in 1995 by the citizens of Seborga, which for years has fought for the vindication of the independence of the Principality.
