Kingdom of Soissons, a Roman rump state.

A rump state is the remnant of a once much larger state, left with a reduced territory in the wake of secession, annexation, occupation, decolonization, or a successful coup d'état or revolution on part of its former territory.[1] In the latter case, a government stops short of going into exile because it still controls part of its former territory.

Ancient historyEdit

  • The state of Xu, which originally controlled much of the Huai River valley,[2] was gradually reduced to the area around its capital, starting from the 7th century BC.
  • The Kingdom of Soissons survived the territorial losses and subsequent fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 CE under Aegidius, who had been appointed to govern the area by Emperor Majorian in 458. The kingdom fell to the Franks' king Clovis in 486.[3]
  • Seleucid Empire in Syria after losing most of its territory to the Parthian Empire.[4]
