Death announced of the successor to the throne of Araucania and Patagonia, HRH Prince Antoine IV.
His adopted heir is a Prince Stanislas ? Not one of his children ?
A deranged Frenchmen was given the throne in the mid-18th because the Mapuche thought a white man could deal with the Argentines and Chileans better. Which didn't work partly because he was deranged and mostly because the Chileans/Argentines were pretty set on conquering them. Since then there've ben a line of French pretenders to the throne, some of whom were artists interested in the project for it's artistic value, and others successful businessman who bought the title.
The Crown Council do continue to take interest in Mapuche affairs, but they aren't taken terribly seriously outside of France.
