Thank you, Grand Duke.

 

Moving to the first order of business, agnatic primogeniture is the usual form of inheritance in areas recognising the Lex Salica. However, strictly speaking, the prohibition against female inheritance of land only applies to the terra salica, that is to say, the ancestral lands of the Salian Franks...a technicality frequently overlooked in the past, or confused with the quite separate patrilinear inheritance customs of other peoples.

 

Before I am able to offer counsel on this point, I would need to determine the following:

 

1. Whether Riskai on any of its territories can be construed as terra salica;

2. Whether any previous owners of these territories were subject to the provisions of the Lex Salica;

3. The existence and nature of any local inheritance customs, which may have a bearing on this question.

 

As concerns the second order of business, I believe a suitable heir should be a member of this council, with experience of government and a record of contribution to the Grand Duchy; but aside from that, the actual nomination should remain the prerogative of the Grand Duke.

Noble Lord Antoku,

 

Our Ever Present Wish is to establish a male only line of succession to descend from our Grand Ducal Heirs and Sucessors. Because of this, one suspects that Our Wish would be to introduce Salic Law guidelines into our realm.

 

The burning issue is that of an heir. We must work to find an heir to the throne and begin to construct Our Royal Family for the people.

If it is your wish to enshrine the principle of agnatic succession, then that is your prerogative and I will of course support your decision. As regards the search for an heir, I must ask whether you have any potential candidates in mind...I could of course propose myself, but that would be bad form! wink.gif

Noble Lord Algavani,

 

Your advice is truly spirited and knowledgeable.

 

I was going to do this anyway, purely because of your involvement within the Grand Ducal Principality, but -

 

We, Carl Magnus III, do By Imperative Decree in the House of Peers assembled, do adopt the Reigning King of Greater Sangun as Heir to the Throne. Due to this elevation, we restate the titulary of the aforementioned Peers as -

 

His Royal and Grand Ducal Highness, Prince Antoku, The Archduke of Riskai-Nidarosia, Grand Prefect of the Chivalric Orders and Cardinal Protector of the Church
