* ''Literature/AnExaminationOfExtraUniversalSystemsOfGovernment'' has a few examples:
** [[PresidentEvil Edward Butler]] still considers himself the legitimate government of the United States, even after being driven off the mainland and into being holed-up in a fortified Guantanamo.
** One timeline sees a more successful Soviet space program put several space stations in orbit, operated by hardline Communists. When the Soviet Union collapses as per OTL, they refuse to recognize it, and declare themselves the true authority of Russia, awaiting the time that communism retakes control. Only North Korea recognizes them as legitimate.
** The American Overseas Republic is a collective of oversea embassies, diplomatic missions, and military bases that refuse to recognize the authority of a United States that is now ruled by a rogue right-wing government.

* Following the fall of Richmond, The Confederate States of America formed a short "Government in Exile" by moving departments into a train of box cars. A few of the leadership did make it to Brazil and set up an exile government community (exile's descendants still live in the area but as citizens of Brazil). Given the ad hoc nature of the Confederate Government, many of it's cabinet leadership felt it was this from the get go. One such member went so far as to declare that his entire department existed in his hat.

** The Targaryens see themselves as this. They were the ruling house of the Seven Kingdoms for three centuries, before they were deposed during Robert's Rebellion and House Baratheon replaced them as the new royal house. The few surviving Targaryens fled into exile. Currently based
in Literature above.Essos, House Targaryen seeks to retake the Seven Kingdoms from House Lannister, who formally replaced House Baratheon as the royal House following the destruction of the Great Sept of Baelor.
** Stannis later sees himself as this as well. Following Robert's death and the revelation that Robert's heir, Joffrey is actually Queen Cersei's bastard son with her twin brother Jaime, Stannis declares himself the rightful king and begins a campaign to take the Iron Throne from the Lannisters. After amassing an army, Stannis attacks King's Landing and almost breaches the city, but is defeated by combined Lannister-Tyrell reinforcements and forced to retreat to Dragonstone. While planning his next move following the deaths of Joffrey and Robb Stark, Stannis travels North to the Wall to aid the Night's Watch against a wildling invasion and meets Jon Snow, attempting to acquire his help in retaking the North from House Bolton, who previously betrayed House Stark and murdered Robb.

* The StarWars EU has the Empire become this following the fall of Coruscant. Until the Legacy comics come about again the Empire is ruled from Bastion. When the Galactic Alliance is defeated, it returns to its roots as the Rebellion, though in both cases the factions are called the "*Insert name here* Remnant" rather than a government-in-exile. Of course, the Alliance itself was essentially the Republic's government in exile, especially given high-level Senators like Bail and Leia Organa and Mon Mothma making up the leadership.

** About midway through the ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' series, the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]] capture Coruscant, shattering the New Republic. The remnants of the Republic's military and political leadership is scattered for a while, but eventually reorganize on Mon Calamari, which they use as their capital until retaking Coruscant at the end of the war (and even then, it takes years of undoing the Vong's HostileTerraforming before the planet can be officially reinstated as the capital).

* The Entente in ''VideoGame/KaiserreichLegacyOfTheWeltkrieg'' starts out with this as a major element -- of its major members, Canada is under strong influence from the British exiles (Britain proper is under the control of the syndicalist Union of Britain) and National France is an Algiers-centred colonial regime (with France proper under the control of the syndicalist Commune of France). Events during the course of the game can have other exile governments appear -- Portugal can end up in the Azores, Angola or Mozambique, the German Empire can end up as a good chunk of Africa, the Dutch government can evacuate to the East Indies...

* Queen Wilhelmina and the rest of the royal family fled the Netherlands in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII as a symbol of resistance; they were welcomed back with uproarious joy afterward. (King Leopold, in neighboring Belgium, had stayed and dealt with the invaders and was consequently forced to resign.) Her daughter Juliana went further afield, to Ottawa (where ''her'' daughter Margriet was born; the Canadian government temporarily declared the maternity ward of the hospital in which Juliana gave birth extraterritorial so she would gain citizenship from her mother alone). It also helped that Juliana's husband Bernhard, although a German, had wanted to stay and join LaResistance, and remained in London with his mother-in-law for much of the war, flying missions for the RAF and later taking command of the Dutch armed forces in the last days of the war.
* Though China would have you believe differently, Taiwan counts as this for them since they call themselves the Republic of China, left over from the Nationalist side of the civil war back in the 30s and 40s. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view[[note]]like most civil wars, it was a shining example of GreyAndGreyMorality and TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilised[[/note]], since they're just an island facing off against one of the world's largest countries there's very little chance that they'll actually be able to become the recognized government again.

* Ecclesiatical equivalent: ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titular_see in partibus]]'' bishops are Roman Catholic bishops whose dioceses were unavailable because of schismatics, heretics or non-Christians taking over the places, ''in partibus'' is the shorter form of ''in partibus infidelium'', meaning "in the lands of the unbelievers."
** One exemple of such seat was the diocese of Bethlehem, whose bishop fled the Saladin on 1187 to the Hospital of Panthenor in the town of Clamecy in Burgundy and who remained there considerated and treated as a normal bishop until the [[UsefulNotes/FrenchRevolution revolution]].
** The Greek Orthodox Church occasionaly awards to bishops sees in modern Turkey whose Greek population was expelled in 1923.

* WorldWarI forced Serbian government and military to exile on the Greek island of Corfu. After repelling the initial two offensives launched by Austria-Hungary in 1914, Serbia found itself facing three enemies in 1915: Austria-Hungary, German Reich and Bulgaria. The Serbian military was forced to retreat to Greece through the mountains of Albania. Despite suffering huge losses due to famine and typhus, they reached their destination. Serbia established a government in exile in Corfu, and, with allied help, managed to resupply and reorganize its troops and launch a succesful counter-offensive in 1918.
* WorldWarII had Charles de Gaulle, who initially lead part of the [[FightingForAHomeland Free French Forces]]. As he continued to organize more exiled forces under his command, and even began to gain control of French colonies previously under the control of Vichy France, he gradually became the de facto leader of the French Government in Exile.
