Seborga , also known under its old name of Sabourg , is a common Italian of the Province of Imperia (IM) in the area of Ligurie. For the Italian République it is a commune like the others, but some of its inhabitants regard it as a Micronation under the name of Principauté of Seborga .
HistorySeborga initially belonged to the Abbé S of Lérins (the islands of Lérins form today part of the commune of Cannes).
It is in January 1729 that Victor-Amédée II of Sardinia bought the Principality of Seborga to its ecclesiastical owner. Néammoins the Abbot Biancheri (deceased in 1746) kept the title of " Prince de Seborga" until 1740 in spite of the illegal protectorate of the House of Savoy (which was never recognized), but without discharging the price from them what explains why Seborga was never mentioned in any later treaty. No diplomatic solution was found since.
Seborga is in fact a ground “irrédente” of the Comté of Nice. Seborga appears well in the “contado di Nizza” of the chart of the States of the king of Sardinia of 1779. This portion of chart is reproduced with the article “County of Nice” of the historical and demographic Dictionnaire of the county of Nice (volume IV of the encyclopedia Niciensis , 2002) published under the direction of Ralph Schor.
Seborga belonged also to the first department of the the Alpes-Maritimes and is reproduced on a chart of this department (state in 1793 - 1799): it belonged then to the district (the districts did not exist yet) of Menton and to the canton of Perinaldo. This chart appears in the article “Department” of the Dictionnaire of Ralph Schor already quoted.
