History

Lytera's monarchy is a confusing tale. Until 2017, Alexander I, King of Lytera was technically King, and was addressed as such, however, High Regent Marion, Regent of Lytera was officially in charge. The monarchy of the Kingdom of Lytera as it currently runs was established on the 19th of August, 2017 with the declaration of right by King Matthew. King Matthew attempted to clamp down on any dissident thinking, and led a two day reign of terror. After a argument with Grand Duke Alex, he attempted to capture the Duke, but the Duke escaped, and rounded up his cousins, who were visiting. On the 21st of June, King Matthew was ousted from power after a day long battle. Alex was crowned in the ruins of what would later become Koi Lake.

The terms of the treaty made Matthew be demoted to Duke, and lose his right to the throne. Until 2018, distrust still existed between the two, though improved relations have begun to shine through. After the Octoberist Coup Plot, Duke Matthew was stripped of his titles once again. The King's cousins are the current expected successors, and are well trusted by the king.

Succession

As of the Monarchical Decree in 2018, the succession to the Crown is linear, with the current monarch's children getting the rights to the throne. However, as the King lacks children, the rights then fall to his cousins. Gender has no precedence, the succession order is based on age. On December 25th, it was announced Owen had replaced Megan as Crown Prince.
