Actual Camerlengo Martina Destefano

The Camerlengo of the Central Protectorate is an office of the Decracy of Yunivers.
The Camerlengo is the administrator of the property and revenues of the Central Protectorate and is the highest secretary and counselor of the Sovereign.

Responsibilities

As head administrator of the Central Protectorate's finances, he's responsible on budgets. However, these tasks are done in his name by the APSE (Agency for Administration of Central Protectorate Patrimony), headed by the Camerlengo.
Chief among the present responsibilities of the Camerlengo is the formal determination of the death or resignation of the reigning Sovereign. The traditional procedure for this was to call his baptismal name (e.g. "Andrea, dormisne?", meaning "Andrea, are you sleeping?" or "Andrea, Relinquis sedem tuam?", meaning "Andrea, are you leaving your seat?"). After the Sovereign is declared dead or decayed, the Camerlengo takes possession of the Royal Ring and cuts it with shears in the presence of the Council of the Nobles, which confirms the beggining of the Sede Vacante and grants to the Camerlengo his powers. This act symbolizes the end of the late Sovereign's authority and prevents its use in forging documents. The Camerlengo then notifies the appropriate officers of the Central Protectorate and the Great Vicar. He is then involved with the preparations concerning the conclave and the eventual Sovereign's funeral.
Until a successor can be elected, the Camerlengo serves as the Decracy of Yunivers' acting head of state.
