Welcome to my site that lists the incumbent heads
of state and government of the countries and some
dependencies in Europe.
countries mentioned here are official countries, that
are recognised by the United Nations or by at least one
member state of the United Nations. This means that
apart from the regular countries, this site also
features Northern (Turkish) Cyprus, Kosovo, South
Ossetia and Abkhazia, although the matter of their
sovereignty is still being discussed. Also mentioned is
the Sovereign Order of Malta, a 'state' that has been
without territory since 1798, but which retains its
claims of sovereignty under international law and has
been granted permanent observer status at the United
entities are listed on this website. Thirteen of those
(the kingdoms of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the
Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, and the United Kingdom, as
well as the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the
principalities of Liechtenstein, Monaco and Andorra, the
Vatican or Holy See, and the Order of Malta) can be
considered monarchies - although technically speaking,
Andorra is a diarchy, as it has two co-princes as
its heads of state - while the other 42 are republics.
Apart from these, six dependencies are listed:
Gibraltar, the Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, the Faroe
Islands and the Åland Islands. Since they share their
heads of state with the countries to which they are
related, only their heads of government are mentioned.
want to send me (better) pictures of the people on this
website, or when you want to ask me to remove one, or
when you just want to ask me something (I don't
guarantee that I can answer all questions), please
me an email!
