  1. Tabar Island, Papua New Guinea
    2┬░54’35.05″S 152┬░00’01.81″E

    A Swedish sailor who was shipwrecked and landed on the island in 1904, became its king after his marriage to the daughter of a local chief.

    This apparently inspired Astrid Lindgren to make the father of Pippi Longstocking (a pirate) the king of “Kurrekurredutt├Ân”, as the island is called in the book.
