Conspiracy theories

Since early 2015, due to the fact that Titianus not appeared publicly since the month of September 2014, many have begun to think that he might have left the office. According to some theories, his resignation would be withheld to ensure the stability of the Central Protectorate. In March the Press Room has released a video message in which the Sovereign apologized publicly, and assured to be still in place. The video explains how Titianus was overburdened with personal commitments also related to the study.
Many have pointed out that in the video, Titianus did not wear the Royal Ring, symbol of the Regency of the State. This has fueled further theories about it, but no confirmation or denial has come from the Central Protectorate. Even in the official portrait of the year 2015, Titianus' not wearing the ring with his royal seal.
