History

The General Court originated as the Grand Court of Consuls of the County Palatine of Maradia. It was overseen by the Grand Consul of Maradia, and consisted of three Core Consuls.

The Supreme Court of Floeratia (later Efransa) succeeded the Grand Court. This was followed by the Supreme Federal Court of the Efrasachin (Iblusigonian) Empire. The Supreme Federal Court in itself was succeeded by the Federal Court of Tribarcas.

Under Maradia-Fienomige, the Federal Court returned to being the Supreme Court, some functions of which were delegated to the High Court. This was succeeded by the High Court of Ludisirga and later by the Supreme Court of the Union of Efransa.

The High Court of Justice was founded on April 19, 2020 along with the rest of His Majesty’s Government. Under the Commonwealth of Efransa, the Council of Lords exercised Judicial power. The modern General Court was established by the Imperial Constitution on April 7, 2021.
