Fractal antenna engineering concepts have been successfully combined with genetic algorithms to develop a powerful design optimisation tool. The genetic optimisation approach developed can simultaneously optimise the geometry of a fractal antenna, locations of loads, component values of loads, and projected length of the fractal antenna. The results suggest that a 30 to 55% size reduction can be achieved by optimising the fractalisation of a given antenna. The knowledge gained from this study is directly applicable to the design of miniature multiband fractal antennas
