History

Lord Protector era (2015-2017)

Upon the penning of the Essian Instrument of Government, Henry Twain was elected to serve as the first Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of Esse. His official coronation took place at some point around the 3 June 2015, with one hand upon a Bible. The micronation went inactive after several months and spent several stints in other micronations.

Twain served as Lord Protector for the entirety of the early era.

Lordship (2017-present)

After a long stint of inactivity, the position was revived with the Restoration of Government order in January 2017 which reformed the office of Lord Protector into an absolute royal office known as the Lordship. Twain officially assumed the title on 30 January 2017, and the micronation was also recognized as a Grand Unified Micronational member state.

In late February, the office was reformed slightly with 8 Commonwealth Code, forming the office into an Imperial absolute monarch.

Succession

The rules of succession to the Lordship were established in 8 Commonwealth Code, establishing precedence to the partner of the Lord/Lady and - if applicable - his/her children. The lowest place on the line of succession enabled the Lord to establish other successors unrelated to the direct family granted there were not enough spaces filled to reasonably prepare for an emergency which would require a successor.
