Imperial and Majestic Highness (abbreviation HI&MH) is a style (His Imperial and Majestic Highness or Her Imperial and Majestic Highness); plural Imperial and Majestic Highnesses (abbreviation TI&MH, Their Imperial and Majestic Highnesses). It is only known to have appeared in front of the name of the then Crown Prince Jonathan of Austenasia.

The style Imperial and Majestic Highness ranks below Imperial Majesty and Majesty (referring to an Emperor/Empress and King/Queen respectively), but above Imperial Highness and Imperial and Royal Highness (which refer to a member of an Imperial house and a relative of a monarch with both royal and Imperial connections respectively).

The style of Imperial and Majestic Highness was invented by Crown Prince Jonathan of Austenasia after he was given the title of His Majesty The King of Moylurg in October 2010. Not wishing to assume the style of "Majesty" and thus claim the dignity of a monarch while living in Austenasia recently after the civil war, but wishing to be more directly associated with a monarch than by holding the style of Imperial and Royal Highness (HI&RH), the new style was invented. The Crown Prince therefore styled himself as a member of an Imperial house who has direct connotations of "Majesty", without using the style itself except in Moylurg.
