Frédéric Rodriguez-Luz also known as Frédéric Luz is a French writer and heraldist. He is also the current pretender to the "throne" of the Kingdom of Araucanía and Patagonia.

Personal[edit]

Born Frédéric Nicolas Jacques Rodriguez-Luz, on March 9, 1964 in Toulouse, France [3], he lives in France and is married to Annie-Marie. He has two children[4]. He was student of modern literature[5][third-party source needed]

Professional[edit]

Since 1984, Frédéric Luz has worked professionally as a heraldist and has published a number of works on heraldry. He was a heraldic advisor to Henri d'Orléans, Count of Paris.[6] In 2003 and 2004, Luz created coats of arms for cities and government ministries in the Republic of Senegal, as well as for Senegalese Presidents Léopold Sédar Senghor and Abdoulaye Wade. For his work, he was made a Commander of the National Order of the Lion of Senegal.[7]/

Pretender to the throne of Araucanía and Patagonia[edit]

On August 28 1873 the Criminal Court of Paris ruled that Antoine de Tounens, first "king of Araucania and Patagonia" did not justify his status of sovereign[8].

Since the death of Antoine de Tounens, some French citizens without familial relations declared themselves to be pretenders to the throne of Araucania and Patagonia. Whether the Mapuche themselves accept this, or are even aware of it, is unclear[9].

The pretenders to the "throne of Araucania and Patagonia" are called monarchs and sovereigns of fantasy[1][10][11][12][13], "having only fanciful claims to a kingdom without legal existence and having no international recognition"[2].

Frédéric Luz became actively involved in the work of the Kingdom of Araucania and Patagonia in 2014. Jean-Michel Parasiliti di Para as known as "prince Antoine IV of Araucania and Patagonia" named him minister of communications and judge of arms of the Kingdom of Araucania and Patagonia. He was also made vice President of UN-recognized NGO, Auspice Stella, which works to promote Mapuche rights in the international community.

On March 24, 2018, Frédéric Luz was elected pretender to the throne of Araucania and Patagonia[14][15]
