Principality of Seborga - Cistercian-Templar state or hoax?

Seborga was an ancient feud of the Counts of Ventimiglia. In 954 Count Guido bestowed the castle, the Saint Michael's Church in Ventimigila and the big portion of land to the monks of Lerins.  

In 1079 Seborga became a Principality of the Holy Roman Empire. It also boasts a Templar and Cistercian origin. Fact or hoax?
