Interview: Prince Nicholas de Vere von Drakenberg
The Invisible Hand features a new interview with Prince Nicholas de Vere von Drakenberg, author of the books The Dragon Cede and The Dragon Legacy. He refers to himself as the Sovereign Prince of an entity called Drakenberg, as well as the Sovereign Head of an organization called The Imperial and Royal Dragon Court. The court is made of people who claim descent from a collection of royal bloodlines related to De Vere’s family. They all have titles recognized by the Court as having standing in the sovereign kingdom of Drakenberg.
Here, we focus on this concept of Drakenberg , as a “freedom technology,” somewhat like the sovereignty movement in the US, Canada and Britain. In that movement, people who choose to “go sovereign” file paperwork with the government announcing their freedom from the government’s rule, thus proclaiming that their own individual sovereignty is supreme.
This is the true tradition upon which sovereignty has historically been based — royal blood that denotes inherited rights to titles and land and a “divine” mandate — to rest your own claim of sovereignty upon in the modern world. This is like talking to the elite on terms that they can understand, saying “Don’t mess with me, because I’m a prince, not just another slave.” Drakenberg is inherently ethereal in nature. Most states are merely corporations — imaginary entities brought to life by legal proclamation.
Drakenberg is transcorporeal, paradoxically both alive and dead, apparent and hidden, real and surreal, at the same time. Because of this, it represents real power that cannot be overthrown since it resides in our collective spirit. This is the “transcorporeal / transnational” idea behind it. It is an essentially metaphysical nation-state. Yet it absolutely “exists” in corporeal form wherever Dragons live out their ultraterrestrial lives, including the depth dimensions of life. We embody everything that is the sovereign dragon nation.
