The continent of Antarctica was discovered by a Russian called Fabian Bellingshausen on January 27 1820. Bellingshausen discovered and named two Antarctic islands: Peter I Island, which Bellingshausen discovered on January 21 1821 and named after Tsar Peter I the Great, and Alexander Island, which Bellingshausen discovered on January 28 1821 and named after Tsar Aleksandr I, who was the reigning Tsar of Russia, when Bellingshausen discovered Alexander Island.

In the future, parts of Antarctica will likely become deglaciated. In that case, human settlement of Antarctica will be possible. I would like the Romanov Tsardom being re-established on Peter I Island and Alexander Island in that case. Russian monarchists can settle the islands and elect a Romanov Tsar of the Tsardom of Antarctica. LONG LIVE THE TSARDOM OF ANTARCTICA!

well they never claimed the area as far as i know, but we have the british antartic territory with elizabeth ii as queen. so we already have a monarchy there in some parts of it. it should just be extended to all of antarctica in my opinion.

In addition to the British Antarctic Territory, the Kingdom of Norway claims a large part of Antarctica (Queen Maud Land), and Australia and New Zealand claims large parts of Antarctica. But according to the Antarctic Treaty, no territorial claim on Antarctica is internationally recognized. 

I prefer a Romanov monarchy in Antarctica to a Windsor monarchy in Antarctica, because the Romanovs rule no other lands, while the Windsors rule 16 states outside Antarctica. Establishing a Romanov monarchy in Antarctica may be the only way to re-establish the Romanov monarchy. It's true, that Russia never annexed those territories, but by naming those territories, Fabian Bellingshausen implicitly claimed them for Russia. Peter I Island is claimed by Norway, while Alexander Island is claimed by Great Britain, Argentina and Chile.

After deglaciation, Peter I Island and Alexander Island will be a perfect location for Anton Bakov's Russian Empire project. Anton Bakov actually claims all of Antarctica as part of the territory of the Russian Empire based on the right of discovery. King Harald of Norway and Queen Elizabeth of England and Scotland ought to be magnanimous and cede Peter I Island and Alexander Island to Tsar Nikolay III (Karl Emich of Leiningen), the legitimate Tsar of Antarctica.

I have always thought that if the icecaps melt then Greenland, owned by Denmark, would become prime real estate.  Since Denmark proper might end up under the waves, then New Denmark with descendants of the royal house in residence would become a great power.  That deserves a science fiction story right there.

Why not write a science fiction story, which is set in a world, in which massive global warming has occurred. The ice caps of Greenland and at least parts of Antarctica have melted, and sea levels have risen significantly. The royal family of Denmark and the government of Denmark has moved to Greenland, and Russian monarchists have colonized Peter I Island and Alexander Island in Antarctica.

It certainly is doable, but the problem would be what kind of transportation--ships or boats--would predominate, how would people communicate over vast distances of water, what would agriculture be like.  I have an idea for a plot already, but we'll have to see.
