List of historical unrecognized countries

These lists of historic unrecognized or partially recognized states or governments give an overview of extinct geopolitical entities, that wished to be recognized as sovereign states, but did not enjoy worldwide diplomatic recognition. The entries listed here had "de facto" control over their claimed territory and were self-governing with a desire for full independence, or if they lacked such control over their territory, were recognized by at least one other recognized nation.
