Succession

The succession to the Alenshkan throne, as well as to the Abeldane throne, is done by a rotational succession where members of the 3 ruling houses, House of Freayth, House of Kioya and House of West, are arranged by the order of precedence of the houses alternately:

  • (1) Member of the House of Freayth
  • (2) Member of the House of Kioya
  • (3) Member of the House of West
  • (4) Member of the House of Freayth
  • .....

If the case is that the member of the House of Freayth is the Monarch, a member of the House of Kioya will be the heir apparent and the second in line would be a member of the House of West. If the case is that the member of the House of Kioya is the Monarch, a member of the House of West will become the heir apparent and the second in line would be a member of the House of Freayth. If the case is that a member of the House of West is Monarch, the heir apparent would be a member from the House of Freayth and the second in line would be from the House of Kioya. The rest of the succession is the same alternately with members from each house arranged accordingly per precedence of the House.

Those who hold the first and second line to the succession are only the heads of each houses and no one else may take that place if he/she is not the head of any of the houses. The heir apparent usually bears the title Duke of Alexton or Duchess of Alexton and the second in line takes the title Duke of Pleston or Duchess of Pleston. The titles are not hereditary and thus in the case one ascends to the throne, the first in line has to be given the title by the Monarch as the title merges with the Crown upon his/her accession.

Currently, all houses follows an absolute primogeniture and thus females are eligible for the throne. Previously, the House of Freayth and West followed the male-preference primogeniture but abolished it in 2016. The Dowager Duchess of Trentonshire and the Duchess of Stephenston are given an exception to be included on the succession as mothers to the respective heads.
