March 2 (UPI) -- A Colorado man took out an ad in an English newspaper claiming to be the rightful King of Wales and promising to reclaim his throne.

Allan V. Evans of Wheat Ridge, Colo. purchased the two-column ad in the "public notices" section of England's The Times newspaper claiming to be a descendent of the first King of Wales and demanding his right to the throne.

In the advertisement, which Evans said serves as a "legal notice" to all Britons, Welshman, Scots, Manx and other interested parties, he claimed to be a descendent of Cunedda Wledig and to have maintained "an unbroken primogeniture line" while living in the United States.

Evans stated that he will return in 30 days to claim his historical property, which includes a total of 17 estates.

He had also previously filed a claim in Twiggs County, Georgia asserting his family ancestry entitled him to ownership of 35 homes, a church and a shooting range in 2012.

His claim was ultimately defeated and held up by the Georgia Supreme Court a year later.

In addition to the his Wales estate, Evans believes "historical injustice" robbed his family lineage of the "Throne and Sovereign Crown of Great Britain."

As an admirer of Queen Elizabeth II, Evans said he will postpone his claim to her throne until she dies.

"He will not out of greatest and most deepest respect depose her in life for the great service and selfless sacrifice that she and her husband HRH Prince Philip has rendered to this great nation," he wrote.

Evans concluded his notice by comparing his return to J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of the Rings.

"For the Legend was not a myth but was indeed true, and more than a mere Tolkien story, that the men of the West are now returning and now is the time of the return of the King," he said.
