Titles and Honours
Lewis of Rome is currently the King of Rome and Sovereign of the Order of l'Aigle d'Or
King of Rome
The title "King of Rome" is a courtesy title and personal dignity afforded to Lewis upon the Declaration of Kingship. Although he is not the direct successor of Napoléon II as King of Rome, nor is he heir apparent of the French Empire, Napoléon II is cited as the predecessor of Lewis I in order to acknowledge the origin of the title and create a legitimate basis for the title.
Lewis I's full style is His Majesty, Lewis I, King of Rome, Sovereign of the Order of l'Aigle d'Or. In speech it is considered courteous to address Lewis as "Your Majesty", however it is acceptable also to refer to him as "My Lord", "Sir" or with no title or style at all.
