What fact sounds completely made up but is actually real?

The island of Sark was once invaded by an unemployed physicist.

Sounds too strange to be true, doesn’t it?
Well, let’s start at the beginning.
Sark is a part of the Channel Islands, which is an archipelago in the southwestern English Channel, and it has quite the intriguing history.
Despite the many sociopolitical changes that have affected Europe in the past thousand years, Sark has remained surprisingly medieval in its traditions.
For one, it didn’t abolish its feudal system until 2009! And even then, it was more a formality than anything.
Moreover, the island has a number of laws quite medieval in nature, all enforced by the so-called Seigneur (male) or Dame (female) of Sark: divorce is illegal; cars are banned on the roads; only the Seigneur is allowed to keep pigeons; the list goes on and on.

La Seigneurie, home of the island’s head
Despite its unique history, it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that not a whole lot goes on in Sark—at least, not since 1990, when it faced a most daring invasion.
André Gardes was an unemployed nuclear physicist with no job prospects. Thus, he decided his best chance for economic survival was to conquer Sark, subjugate its 610 inhabitants, and declare himself the Seigneur of the island.
But Gardes could not find anyone willing to follow him, probably because no one took him seriously. Yet, he somehow thought that he alone would be enough for the invasion, and so began preparations.
Gardes arrived the night before his so-called invasion, and gallantly decided to post two notices on the island of the impending takeover. (Interestingly, the Nazis had done the same just fifty years before.)
This was arguably quite a mistake on his part, as the island’s single constable was informed of the impending invasion and decided to take the threat seriously.

The next day, Gardes began patrolling in front of the Seigneur’s manor, armed with a semi-automatic weapon and dressed in battle gear.
He soon sat down on a park bench and waited for noon, at which time he would strike. The constable soon located him, and seeing that Gardes was loading his weapon, made his way towards him.
The constable complimented the physicist on his choice of weaponry, and requested if the magazine could be removed so that he could admire it more closely.
Gardes assented, and as soon as the magazine was removed, the constable tackled him to the ground. And just like that, the Battle at a Single Park Bench was over.
No doubt, André Gardes’s invasion of Sark ultimately failed, ending with his week-long imprisonment. It’s not like he learned his lesson, though: he would try again a year later, though this time he would be caught at the neighboring island of Guernsey
