The order of precedence of the Empire of Adammia was most recently legally defined by Imperial Decree LVI on 15 February 2018.

History

For much of Adammic history, the order of prededence was defined by Decree XVI, signed into law on 28 October 2013. There are also other, de-facto elements of the order of precedence which relate to titles which were not considered by Decree XVI or were not created at the time. This de-facto order of precedence has been influenced by documents such as the Military of Adammia's General Manual, which specifies the number of guns to be fired in salutes to different officials. Generally speaking, only styles from the de-jure order of precedence are used in a person's official full style and manner of address. The entire system of Adammic titles was overhauled by Decree LVI on 15 February 2018.
