\n* Italy has the island of Tavolara (inside the territory of the city of Olbia in Sardinia), with the family Bertoleoni (who, as the first ones to settle there when there was no owner, at one point owned the entire place, and still own a few houses there) claiming to be the reigning dinasty. It apparently started out as a joke (the "founder" Giuseppe saying that Carlo Alberto, King of Sardinia, had once visited the island and presented himself with his regnal title, Giuseppe, not realizing who he was talking to, had claimed being the king of Tavolara, and Carlo Alberto actually took him seriously or was amused enough to grant him the place), but then they and the following settlers noticed the attention it brought them and started using it as a tourist gymmick.

* In ''Film/PassportToPimlico'', a long-lost charter reveals that the London borough is actually part of the Duchy of Burgundy. Since the Duchy no longer exists, this makes them independent ... once they can find a Duke.
