ABINGDON, Va. -- An American man says he has claimed a kingdom in Africa so his daughter can be a princess. Jeremiah Heaton tells the Bristol Herald Courier that he recently trekked to a small, mountainous region between Egypt and Sudan called Bir Tawil. No country claims the land. Heaton says he planted a flag designed by his children there so that he could become a king -- and more importantly, so his 7-year-old daughter Emily could be a princess.

Mr Heaton, a father of three who works in the mining industry, didn't want to make any false promises to Emily, then six years old, who was "big on being a princess". But he still said yes. "As a parent you sometimes go down paths you never thought you would," he said.
