Description - Rebels, Pretenders and Impostors by Clive Cheesman
Throughout history, many individuals have dreamt of becoming a king, queen or president. Some have been successful, while others were pure fantasists. But both types took themselves very seriously, and often produced coins, banknotes, stamps, and heraldic devices as proof of their status. From ancient to modern times, from the Far East to the New World, this book looks at examples of pretend sovereigns and phantom countries, rebel states and royal imposters.
