Oath of Fealty of the Aragonese Lords to their Monarch (15th c.)
We, who are as good as you,
swear to you, who are no better than us,
to accept you as our king and sovereign,
provided you observe all our liberties and laws,
but if not, no.

The Anglosphere is far from being just a quirky, nostalgic idea. It is at the heart of a re-emerging political world-view.

The word, “Anglosphere” occurs in Neal Stephenson’s novel, The Diamond Age, published in 1995. Jim Bennett used the word in a talk given at The Hudson Institute’s Thatcher Forum, October 1999 (date being confirmed), in an article in the National Post, January 4, 2000, and in an article in The National Interest: Networking Nation-States (Winter 2003-2004).
The meaning of “Anglosphere” according to Jim Bennett:

Robert Conquest is said to have used the word in a book published around 2000. I’m looking for that book. -ls
Explorers Foundation invests in that part of the currently irrelevant which we believe, in time, will become currently critical.
