Claudius I took possession of the Regency Office with the Insediamento ceremony on 13 December 2010. During his regency, Claudius I stood out because of his strong conservative ideologies. From 2010 to 2013 he enacted 13 laws, issued 8 decrees and released 2 'motu proprio'.


He harshly criticized the same-sex marriage and the opening of some Yuniversan politics to a more open foreign policy. He was a great defender of the ancient traditions and policies of the nation, also in terms of immigration and citizenship. He recently opened in reforms for more religious freedom.
