History is full of self-proclaimed kings, presidents and governors. Many are to be found in literature, as well, and some of these real and fictitious figures marked eras, while others end up as protagonists of some hilarious anecdote or after-dinner joke.
The Bible says that Adonijah, son of Jaguit, conspired with Joab, son of Sarvia, and the priest Abiathar, to gather his followers and relatives by the Stone of Zochelet in Enoguel, and proclaimed himself king of Judah, behind David’s back.
Don Fernando de Guzman proclaimed himself, “by the grace of God, Prince of Terra Firma and Peru,” ignoring his allegiance to King Phillip of Spain. Guzman was not willing to share the riches of the mythical Dorado with any king across the Atlantic.
England, during the second half of the 15th century, was plunged into a chaos of intrigue and shifting alliances. Two irreconcilable sides, the Yorks and the Lancasters, fought to the death for the throne. The self-proclaimed kings were many, as ambitious men and women competed ruthlessly for the crown.
