The monarchy of Shorewell, commonly referred to as the Crown or constitutionally the Throne, is the political body comprising of the Monarch and the Imperial Family. The official title of the office of the Monarch holds the title of Sultan if male, and Sultana if female. The first and current Monarch of Shorewell is Bilal I.
Even though in actuality, the Sultan of Shorewell claims imperial status, he is commonly referred to as the monarch of the Shorewell in legal documents such as the constitution due to how the word monarch doesn't explicitly defy the status of imperial rank. In addition, the Sultan is officially the Sultan of Shorewell, albeit he may be referred to as the Sultan of the Shorewellese, Emperor of Shorewell, and Emperor of the Shorewellese, though only the former remains within conventional use.
The monarch holds various other titles besides Sultan, some of which include foreign knighthoods and titles.
Imperium is considered the possession of the imperial rank of Emperors. The Shorewellese Imperium ideology holds elevated view of the Emperor, as it finds that all Emperors should be able to trace recognition of their imperial rank from the Roman Emperors. Shorewellese Foreign policy heavily revolves Imperium and the method of recognizing other Imperial ranks. Multiple treaties have been signed with nations that claim to have Emperors, however, provisions of Shorewell recognizing the said status have not been commonly instituted, thus not granting recognition of the imperial rank even if the signatories are addressed as emperor's for the sake of protocol. The Emperor styles himself as Sultan in legal documents, and is considered to be supreme in matters of the monarchy and government.
