Shorewellese imperial family
|Imperial Family of Shorewell|
HIM The Sultan Father
HIM The Sultan Grandfather
The Imperial Family of Shorewell was established by its current Monarch, the Sultan of Shorewell. At first, the Imperial family was to be restricted to the offspring of the Sultan himself. However, later questions were made on the legitimacy on the rights of other family members who could possibily inherit the throne if the Sultan and his immediately family were to pass away. As such, the Sultan Grandfather, in his capacity of being the family's patriarch, was declared to be a member of the Imperial Family and it was decided that his progeny would be imperials. The line of succession shall be put into place when the Sultan has children. For now, the Heir to the throne is a closely related Imperial chosen by the monarch, which currently is Crown Prince Humza.
Currently, Sultan Bilal I, Sultana Mother Aneela, and Sultan Grandfather Yaqoob may address themselves as His or Her Imperial Majesty (HIM), while their consorts may share their style. All Princes and Princesses born into the Imperial Family may address themselves as His or Her Imperial Highness (HIH), while their consorts may also share their style.
Though Shorewell is a constitutional monarchy, the Imperial Family of Shorewell is the leading house of the nation and have the utmost amount of power with very few limitations. Unlike any other Noble, Chivalric, or Peerage title within the nation, the official titles of the Imperial family hold meaning and power. The Monarch possesses full power and can carry out his will with impunity. The Consort possess similar authority, but must submit to the Monarch's will if the latter disagrees with their actions.
Any parents of the monarch are entitled to supreme rights in their own right over the nation. However, like the Consort, they must ultimately submit to the will of the Monarch. Any Prince or Princess, regardless of being a blood relative to the Monarch, have equal authority with each other, and can exercise their will largely as they see fit. However, they too must accept the will of the Monarch, the Imperial Consort, or the parents of the Monarch.
No member of the Imperial Family may sign an official document on any matter without the Monarch's consent. The Consort and parents of the Monarch have equal privileges and rights, while the Princes and Princesses are placed below them in Imperial rank.
