Dr. Goff is the True and Rightful Head of the House
He is the Fürst or Prince of Halberstadt:
[A] "Fürst" is a uniquely German title that is best translated to "prince" and should be regarded as superior to "prince." It designates the head (the "first") of a princely house, or the head of a branch (or "cadet") of such a house. For example, the German form of Prince Rainier's title is "Fürst von Monaco" (Princess Grace was "Fürstin").
(Mark Odegard, A Glossary of European Noble, Princely, Royal and Imperial Titles; 2018: http://www.heraldica.org/topics/odegard/titlefaq.htm

), a former Officer in the United States Navy serving on the USS SIERRA (AD18) and received the highest SMI inspection the ship had had in ten years, that is, outstanding in everything, was an Expert Witness in State and Federal Courts, wrote two successful books, was a District Scout Executive as a young man, and presently does Psychological Testing and Outcome Research.

Dr. Goff and his wife have a family of 25 -- 5 children, 17 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren.
It is true that "The Law makes all the Difference
" in any rightful claim, not heredity. Hence, the following is not where rights come from. Nevertheless, along with many other people on earth, Dr. Goff is a descendant of King Edward III of England, King Phillip IV of France, King James Stuart I of Scotland, King Ludwig II of Bavaria and Matilda von Habsburg, ancient Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish kings, some Ukraine Grand Princes, Gruffydd Rhys, Prince of South Wales, his father, the King of Deheubarth, William X, Duke of Aquitane, King Alfonso II, King of Aragon, a Prince of Lusignan, Frederick Barbarossa, a Holy Roman Emperor of the House of Hohenstaufen and the ancient House of Welk, Isaac II Angelos, a Byzantine Emperor and various English and German Earls or Counts, Dukes and Princes as well as their progenitors. He has over 500 pages of genealogical research on his direct ancestors from over 40 years of research completed by several professional firms. Updated DNA shows him to be over 70% British and the rest chiefly from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Sweden, Germany and France. However, his rightful claims as the legal first Prince or Fürst of Halberstadt came by law, as do all rightful claims, not chiefly by lineage, but legally and lawfully right right according to law. (See "Law is the Major Factor in Authenticity
and "Ethnic DNA Testing is not Reliable, but the Law is
" in "The Law makes all the Difference between an Authentic and a Fraudulent Claim
") All of these progenitors listed above are, of course, from long ago and include many commoners or regular people as well.
Most patrimonial dispossessed royal houses, such as, the Principality of Halberstadt, are rarely acknowledged for what they are legally and lawfully. Nevertheless, "The deposed monarch [or non-reigning royal house] is entitled to full recognition by other sovereigns, and all nations and all people, adhering to the moral and ethical principles implicit in International Law.
" (Stephen P. Kerr, "King and Constitution in International Law," The Augustan
, vol. 18, no. 4, 1977, p. 126) (emphasis added) In other words, a deposed sovereign in international law is legally equal to a reigning monarch or head of state, not in power, but in the basic legal rights of sovereignty. (See "Sovereign Equality: Royal Status and Monarchy
" in chapter four, volume two of the book The Entitlement to Rule: Legal, Non-Territorial Sovereignty in International Law
by Stephen P. Kerr at http://www.the-entitlement-to-rule.com
) (See also "The Principality of Halberstadt was and is a Sovereign Entity and therefore a Royal Realm"
in The First of Eight Transfer Modes Legally Conveying all Rights and Privileges
The unique regal right as the "Fürst [or prince] von Halberstadt"
is to hold a number of other royal and noble titles that are owned as part of the principality's inherent royal entitlements, which are explained on the web page entitled "What was Transferred.
" It included the titles of baron of Schauen, count of Hainburg, a duke of Saxony, and a prince of the Holy Roman Empire. The owned territorial honors are prince of Ascaria (Anhalt-Aschersleben or Ascania), count of Regenstein and Valkenstein, and the lordships of Derenbourg and Hessenrode. The prenominal title is "His Most Serene Highness
" (HMSH). "Illustrious
" can be added because of the counties that qualified for such. Even though we, as a family, hold extra-ordinary titles, we are just ordinary people -- not rich or wealthy -- very similar to most of the other Houses of the German high nobility.
In all of this, the truth must never be forgotten that true greatness is an inner quality, not an outward worldly honor. Lawful titles and worldly accomplishments do not make people truly great and good inside -- only good heartedness creates true nobility and an inward greatness never truly seen by others. That is, Dr. Joseph R. Sizoc (1919-2004), a former U.S. diplomat, astutely declared some real important truths concerning things "as they really are.
" He wrote:
Let it never be forgotten that glamour is not greatness; applause is not fame; prominence is not eminence. The man of the hour is not apt to be the man of the ages. A stone may sparkle, but that does not make it a diamond. A man may have money, but that does not make him a success.
He then declared:
It is what the unimportant do that really counts and determines the course of history. The greatest forces in the universe are never spectacular. Summer showers are more effective than hurricanes, but they are not remembered.
The world would soon die but for the fidelity, loyalty, and consecration of those whose names are unhonored and unsung. There is, therefore, no life however humble, but may take its place in the building of a braver and better tomorrow. It is so easy to exaggerate the importance of the [so-called] important and underestimate the importance of the [so-called] unimportant. (reference unknown)
Truly, if it was not for the inner goodness of the common man, all we would know in this world is the utter anguish and ruin that naturally flows out of a lawless society. Common, ordinary, regular people can be the greatest men and women of this or any generation.

Eight Legal and Lawful Methods Transferred all the Rights
Deposed de jure
or legal sovereignty are both a private law rights as well as public law rights. Whereas, reigning sovereignty is exclusively under public jurisdiction, deposed sovereignty is governed by both public and private law. As a direct result, both private law transfer methods, and public law modes of conveyance, had the full legal power to transfer all the honors, privileges and distinctions of the principality of Halberstadt. (See "Public and Private Law as it relates to the Transfer of the Principality of Halberstadt
in "The Public and Non-Public Use of Titles in International Law
It is most impressive that not just one or two, but eight different, equally binding acquisition modes, unitedly and perfectly transferred the principality and all its regal rights to the Goff/Harradine family. These laws are listed as follows along with the dates when they were achieved:
The transfer is an established fact -- each of the above perfected the change in ownership in its own unique way.
This claim is as sure as any other royal claim that ever existed on the earth. It is that profound. Our case could hardly be stronger.
In fact, we also qualified for four more valid international transfer modes, "novation,
" "consolidation of title,
" "highest entitlement on earth on an international level,
" and "international proprietary estoppel
as well. Since each is composed of similar principles involved in most of the other acquisition laws mentioned above, we have not listed them. Nevertheless, this means there are, in fact, four more powerful witnesses to the truth of the transfer. There is now a total of twelve valid domestic and international conveyance methods involved. Novation and consolidation of title are explained on the web page: "A Seventh and an Eighth Method also Transferred all the Rights and Privileges
" and international proprietary estoppel and international highest right on earth is described in "Three More Legally Binding Methods Transferred All the Rights to the Principality
The grand and obvious conclusion is that this is one of the most profoundly certain claims on earth based on verified, confirmed and extensive evidence.
(See The Mathematical Certainty of the Claim")
It would be a lot more comfortable to operate below the radar, merely claim our rights privately, and not stick our necks out, but international law requires or obligates that one publicly assert his or her rights or lose them. In other words, to maintain what is considered to be of great value and worth to us personally, we must obey the law. By this means, it is possible to preserve deposed legal sovereignty from generation to generation, but such obedience ". . . imposes on him an obligation to make known his rights.
" (Hugo Grotius, The Law of Nations
, Book II, chapter 11, no. 141) . (See "Maintaining Deposed Sovereignty and De jure Ownership
" on this website or "DEPOSED SOVEREIGNTY AND ROYALTY: How to Preserve it and How it can be Lost
" at http://www.nobility-royalty.com/the_sovereign_rights_of_deposed_kings__monarchs_and_sovereign_princes.htm
and also Dr. Kerr's book The Entitlement to Rule: Legal, Non-Territorial Sovereignty in International Law
The Law of Nations also requires or behooves one to provide solid proof, or a claim is considered to be no better than a family fairy tale, a phony pretense, or mere make believe. Thus, we have this website to fulfill these two important legal mandates: a public presence and solid proof, which proof was certified as valid by legal experts and the numerous citations and explanations of legally verified facts as found throughout this website. (For the requirement of proof, see "Proof is Necessary
" in "The Law makes the Difference between a Solid and a Questionable Claim,
" and "The Mathematical Certainty of the Claim
Even though Halberstadt is a small sovereign regal entity, the ownership of ". . . sovereignty is not of like character with other things, rather, in its exalted rank, it far exceeds other things." (Hugo Grotius, The Law of War and Peace, Book 2, chapter 12, no. I) It is something truly magnificent -- there is something supreme and wonderful about it, which is above most things in life. ". . . The ruler or sovereign of a State [reigning or deposed] is, in international law, . . . considered as representing, in his person, [all] its sovereign dignity [honor and glory] . . . ." (William Teulon Swan Stallybrass, A Society of States,Sovereignty, 1919, p. 32) The point is, "All the majesty of the nation resides in the person of the prince. . . ." (Emerich de Vattel, The Law of Nations, Book I, chapter 15, no. 188) "Every thing that emanates from the throne ought to bear the character of purity, nobleness, and greatness." (Ibid.)
However, ownership of a real sovereign title does not make a man important, great, or good deep inside himself. Truly noble people are people with integrity, good works and compassion for what is right. We highly value what we have, but true nobility or inner greatness is earned, not bestowed, conveyed or transferred.
Our house rules mandate that no knighthoods will be conferred on non-family members, no titles will be given out to people outside of the family, nothing of regal importance will be sold or bartered. The claims, although public titles under international law, will not be flaunted, although they must be used as required by law.
