The County of Memphis, despite being an intrinsic part of the sovereign territory of the Kingdom of the Grove, holds autonomy by virtue of the Second Edict of Orly (see above). Any order of the King of the Grove regarding the County of Memphis may be vetoed by the Countess of Memphis, who, despite formally recognising the King as her feudal superior, governs the county independently.
Although the title Countess of Memphis is Orlian and not Austenasian, the first act of Jonathan I as Emperor was to grant its holder the style of [[Illustrious Highness]] (HIll.H). In the Second Edict of Orly (issued as it was a mere week after the Liberation), Emperor Jonathan I assumed the right "as suzerain of Orly" to clarify and confirm the geographical borders and political arrangements within Orly, as had [[Esmond III, Emperor of Austenasia|Emperor Esmond III]] three years prior. The King of the Grove was forbidden to remove the Countess "from her title, position or powers", but the Emperor himself did so in September 2018, when he replaced Countess Eritoshi with the incumbent Countess Tania. Memphis therefore effectively holds a ''de facto'' form of "[[w:Imperial immediacy|imperial immediacy]]", with the close friendship Emperor Jonathan I has held with both of the Countesses having helped to solidify the special status of Memphis in this regard.
