After retirement, a man turned into a lord and began to live according to the laws of the Middle Ages.

At the age of 60, a man found a universal way to overcome the midlife crisis. All he needed was the help of his wife, the title of lord and his own state living according to the laws of the Middle Ages, informs Ukr.Media.

In the southeast of the Australian city of Queensland is a place where any visitor will be transported back millennia to feudal Europe. Fifty wooden houses, a forge, a small tavern, from which the clatter of cast-iron mugs hitting each other is heard — all this is behind an authentic fence on a private plot.

Only sprawling eucalyptus trees and wallabies moving here and there remind us that this is Australia after all.

< p style="text-align:left">All this appeared thanks to the efforts of one person: an ordinary Australian, Terry Blake, or rather, Lord Terence. When the man retired at the age of 60, he was hit by a serious mid-life crisis.

The newly retired man did not know what to do with his days, and he complained incessantly to his wife. . But the wise lady Tonya (according to documents of the 21st century Tonya Osborne-Blake) directed her husband in the right direction.

In 2014, Mr. Blake combined his love of history with his European travel experiences and added a large tract of land in Riverbend. Thus in Australia appeared (not yet recognized by the country's authorities) Lord Terence's possessions, which include the village of Victory and the forests and fields surrounding it.

Other people from all over the continent were quickly inspired by the idea of ​​the newly-minted feudal lord, and now there are a little more than 60 people living in the settlement. They grow vegetables, go hunting, brew beer and honey, following only medieval recipes, and live in harmony.

True, at some point Lord Terence allowed freethinking to spread in the village, due to which the inhabitants divided its territory into Viking, Roman and Druid zones.

Merchants and traders from distant settlements often come to the village, but in order to get a place at the weekend fair, they have to accept local rules for a day and run, for example, to repair a fence that has collapsed, at the first call.

< p style="text-align:left">On such days, Lord Terence observes all the entertainments of his subjects and strangers from afar. He likes to keep to the shadows and walk in the company of his werewolves, Squire McHendry and Squire Wee Douglas, on the outskirts of the village, which he once (foolishly, he says) called the 'realm of the mid-life crisis'.
