Succession

As per the Basic Law of Atovia, the succession to the throne follows absolute primogeniture within each royal house. If no heir can be found within the reigning house, a new ruling house is elected from the other eligible houses. This election is held between the heads of all the other royal houses and are voted on by the members of the Atovian nobility, called the Royal Council.

There are three distinct standards in use by the monarchy: The Royal Standard, used to represent the monarch; the Standard of the Crown Prince/Princess, used to represent the current heir; and a standard for other members of the royal family. The original standards were designed and adopted by Connor I on 19 May 2018. The designs were then updated on 3 November 2018 and updated further, to their current design, on 30 December 2019. The Royal Standard represents the monarch and is only permitted to be flown from buildings in which the Monarch is residing or displayed on vehicles used by the Monarch for official duties. The other standards follow similar rules with the difference being the individual or individuals they represent. The standards are swallowtail horizontal tribands of blue, white, and orange, charged with the greater coat of arms, the middle coat of arms, and the heraldic crown, respectively.
