Encyclopedia > Michael Hastings

Michael Edward Abney-Hastings, 14th Earl of Loudoun (born 1942) is an British-born Australian rice researcher. He lives in Jerilderie, New South Wales, after moving there in the 1960s. He is the son of Barbara Abney-Hastings, 13th Countess of Loudoun, and succeeded her as Earl of Loudoun in 2002.

In 2004, a documentary broadcast on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom claimed falsely that he was the heir-general of George, Duke of Clarence and therefore the rightful King of England (and thus also Australia), based on the legally unsound belief that proof of the biological illegitimacy of King Edward IV of England would affect his legal legitimacy and thus claim to the throne.

Lord Loudoun is a committed republican and has expressed no interest in pursuing these claims.
