Abstract In 1967, British national Roy Bates and his family, who had taken possession of a disused UK military fort called Rough Tower, located a few miles off Harwich, Essex but outside the British territorial sea which then extended to three nautical miles, declared the fort to be his own Principality and named it Sealand. Since then, Sealand has managed to maintain its existence. This article analyses the status of the platform under applicable legal rules and notably concludes that Sealand is not a state under international law.
