Dracul is proud to hold cultures of Romanian, Russian, and German. With this being the case, many of the very famous models of these cultures have become heroes to the people of Dracul. Learn about our heroes today and what they did for the Romanian, Russian, and German Peoples.
The Commonwealth of Dracul takes its name from the Prince of Wallachia, This is attributed to why Vlad III is a national hero of Dracul. Dracul was established on September 25, 2017 in Houston, Texas by Dmitri Howie, Stephen Luke, and Mark Millner. The plan of a micronation began after Stephen Luke researched micronations on YouTube and several internet forums. The three ultimately envisioned a great micronation, capable of growing beyond current accomplishments. This was to prove that any micronation could go as far as they wanted. The idea, originally proposed by Stephen Luke, was eventually welcomed by the two friends Howie and Millner.
Stephen Luke was born in Romania, while Dmitri Howie claimed bloodline to Vlad III. It was this very fact that led many to believe why the two primary founders chose Vlad III and Romanian heritage for their micronation basis. Mark Millner, co-founder, began his connection with Dracul as an average citizen, then joining the Draculian Navy. After several months of dedication and assistance in ceremonies, Howie and Luke made the decision to grant Millner "Founding Father" Status. Millner's popularity soared as he was seen as flag bearer in most photos and ceremony events on Dracul 1 Television.
Dracul's National Anthem, "Dracul Our Fatherland", was created in February of 2021, after starting off with Poland's National Anthem melody, then creating a melody that many could not relate to. Dracul hired Jordan Grigg, composer from Canada, with over 20 years of experience in conducting, arranging, and writing other music. Mr. Grigg, due to his skills, is now the primary composer of Dracul music.
September 25, 2017 marked the foundation date of the Commonwealth of Dracul. Founded by the Founding Fathers, Dmitri Howie, Stephen Luke, and Mark Millner in Houston, Texas. The micronation was formed to lead by example on how much more micronations could offer their communities, and how to use newer technology for communication and entertainment purposes. The Constitution and Bill of Rights were written the same day.
February 1, 2018 was the founding of the first two states, North and South Dracul. The Federal branches felt it best for the citizens in the North and South to create their own states and governments. This would ultimately result in less stress on the federal level, as the states would manage themselves.
April 10, 2018, a small group of Draculian Citizens had a disagreement with the government over the treatment of religious citizens. The small group voiced that the religious peoples should be targeted, imprisoned, and killed by the Dracul Intelligence Agency. The Federal Government did not take kindly to this proposal and prohibited the small group’s attempt at singling out religious peoples. The small group eventually formed on April of 2018, under the name of “Dracul Confederacy” and attempted to take control of the Capitol in North Dracul. By May 9th, the small group had eventually disbanded and were declared “defeated” by the Federal Government. The leader of the Group, Al Fare, was banned from the community and had his citizenship revoked.
January 7, 2019, elections are held to elect the first governors of the North and South Dracul States. Victory declared by Eric Williams, Jr for North Dracul, by a vote of 66.67 percent. Kassie Bushong secures a South Dracul victory, by a vote of 100 percent.
January 12, 2019, the Department of Foreign Affairs is dissolved and replaced with the Department of State, with Secretary of State Tyler Hibler as the first Secretary under that Department. On this date, Dracul also becomes a member of the I.C.A.N. Security Council, with Ambassador Valeriano Anibarro as the first Dracul Ambassador to I.C.A.N.
July 5, 2020, Bran, North Dracul is transformed into Bran District, leaving North Dracul with the task to create a new capitol city. The reasons for separating the two were primarily based on economics, funding, and military power, which caused an unfair advantage to South Dracul State.
