I know no flashy stuff today, but here's some key notes on how the British succession law works.

testi.png

The British succession law is known as one of the least systematic of all European succession laws, with even one French king remarking – ‘the British treat a crown like they would treat a cup’. Indeed, there are very few distinctions made between inheritance of title and inheritance of possessions.

The basic principle is one of house primacy. The head of house determines the succession, for the house is his property, deriving from an analogue between physical houses and family houses. This also covers succession within his house, as no noble title can pass from one person to another without the head of house having signed off on it. This too includes the princes of flame, which are defined by their being under the royal house Pendragon. They receive a prestigious rank, but are denied independence to determine their succession like more minor houses.

However, because of the largeness some houses can get, a head of house can designate a ‘cadet’ house with a head of the cadet house being appointed by the head of the core house and this appointment has to be renewed every time there is a succession of either head. The ‘cadet’ head can determine a different succession, handle internal succession such as wills and who gets what when someone dies without one, and determine who holds noble titles. However, their authority is always subject to that of the head of the core house, who has the power to revoke their role.

A noble title is regarded as a contract between the house in question and the royal court, therefore the royal court can revoke it at any time but must give grounds for doing so. The monarch can intervene in any non-Pendragon succession to overrule the head of house, but this is extremely rare and would be widely seen as overreaching their bounds, even if fully legal.

The main importance of any succession is the willingness. In British succession law, you cannot succeed to a title unless you are willing to accept the role. This principle was coined in the 17th century as a way to curb the increasing amount of foreign people unwittingly holding peerages as a result of a series of Kings abusing the title-granting powers for revenue. If you are not willing to accept the title, you are then regarded as legally ‘dead’ for purposes of succession, and your heirs would inherit through you.

The legitime is the last remaining bound on any succession, as it denies even the head of house from disinheriting their immediate family [children, siblings, parents] completely. This rule descends from ancient Latin succession, and is regarded those days as a key way to ensure that succession follows the house, and not the individual. It is also extended, in a limited way, to bar any head of house from giving any inherited titles to people not regarded as of their house, as that violates the contract between the house and the court. The position of Dôn di Sew Muison is one such rank that has many examples being permitted to be sold outside the house, seemingly contrasting the name given to it. This was because it was used as a source of revenue and still is those days albeit not as much as it was before the Senate stepped in.

Apart from that, the succession is entirely decentralised, with the houses having their own ways of succession. The most preferred way is those days absolute primogeniture, with agnatic-cognatic a close second. The fact that in Britain, your surname is determined by your house, not by your father, and your house is determined by the highest in rank (unless the head of the higher-ranking house deems otherwise), makes more absolute and agnatic-cognatic successions seem more natural.

However, there are still those that practise some form of seniority-determined succession, tanistry-like successions often happen within a few major houses to prevent one such branch from expelling the rest, there are a few houses that practise ultimogeniture still and there’s one or two that define kinship through the Arabic concept of ‘rada’, or milk-kinship and hence inheritance through that. This one was considerably popular in the early years of British Islam and after the ‘turn to Mecca’ in the 15th century, but faded out afterwards.

There are notably every rule under the sun for gender determination, from the most strict of Salic laws where only the male can inherit, to what is called the ‘Amazon succession’ in British inheritance law where only women can inherit. Since the gender revolution, such laws have been gradually made unpopular but there still remains a hesitance on the government’s part to legislate on succession.

The Black Book of Castreleon is this absurdly large book with thousands of wide pages and each single house [both core and cadet] covered by the British peerage has their succession law written out in painstaking detail, including exempt lineages. The ‘Chief Author’ of the Black Book is a role that is in of itself inheritable, but the role is under the authority of the House Pendragon since the Black Book is regarded as Pendragon property for legal purposes. The process of digitalising the Black Book has been proceeding at an ample pace for decades, headed by a modernising Chief Author.

In any form of dispute in succession, the house in question can elect to appeal to the royal court for arbitration. The royal court nowadays is widely considered to be more or less investing their power in the Senate and Council. The two will, if called upon, set up a committee of their most learned members and ex-members [the later via a writ of resurgence [1] if they are deemed needed by a majority of the Senate] to determine the matter, and when the committee is in session, they are deemed the ultimate authority, the final court, in this matter. The committee has to be invested in their authority by the monarchy separately after being recommended by the Senate and Council.

The most amusing case in modern succession law is the one determining if a robot constructed by one person, with clear artificial intelligence, can genuinely inherit as their scion. The committee ruled that since the robot was determined to be a ‘thinking being’, was ‘made of [the inventor’s] labour’ and was regarded by her house as ‘her daughter, in all but blood’, the old laws covering adoption as a valid route of succession was found applicable and hence yes, the position of head of house would go to the robot. This caused a lot of controversy and calls for the government to legislate on this matter, but since the calls fell into calling for ‘non-humans’ to be barred, it caused a lot of backlash and went nowhere.

[1] The 'writ of resurgence' can essentially recall people who are no longer in the legislature to serve as ones for purposes of committees or cabinet positions. They do not have the power to vote, but it is a way to both ensure more experienced people get in committees [such is the justification] or get around the awkward fact that all the cabinet has to be sitting in the legislature, and there wasn't an upper house until the 1920s to shuffle election-losers to. It is widely used as a replacement for the long-unpopular hereditary seats and the much more controversial ‘writ of summons’ [which essentially creates a full senator with power of voting], even if it is still seen as a very undemocratic and somewhat-chumocratic measure.

To talk a little more candidly, I often have very slow days and also feel as if I should update a timeline or whatever.

The 'fact sheet' allows me to essentially just fill out basic details about a certain random country so I can feel as if I'm still adding something.

The 'fun fact' is also a way to put in some sort of interesting factoid that I probably wouldn't have included in a major write-up.

Also yes, Arnadala [or to be more exact, Arna dala] is correct Faroese for Arni's valleys afaik. Faroese has case agreement to mark possessives.

Are there any major Penguish parties in the Territorial Council?
A few. For a long while, it was essentially just the human-dominated PLD [the party most favourable to British imperialism] and a gaggle of penguin parties via the 'indigenous seats' designed to reduce their representation as much as possible.

But things have shifted a bit from that. While the system still prioritises humans, it's not as overt as before. But there's still racialisation of politics.
 
Power to the Many: The Brooch Province

Extract from ‘The Brooch Province: A History of Dominion Delaware’.

Delaware’s expansion to include the Maryland counties of Kent, Queen Anne’s County, Talbot, Caroline, Dorchester, Somerset and Worcester, and the Virginia counties of Accomack and Northampton, was one of the most transformative periods of Delawarean history. The expansion was ordered by the Viscount Chastleton, allegedly because the future Lord Wilmington persuaded him of the idea at their one meeting years before, but more concretely because Chastleton distrusted more Patriot provinces and wished to associate loyalism with some form of visible reward.

Delaware was granted full province status, cutting off its last ties with the Penns albeit they would still be widely respected in the brooch province as they were considered able administrators that afforded Delaware every right. This grant was welcomed by many Delawareans, but the second part of Chastleton’s reward for loyalty, the rapid expansion would bring with it consequences.

Pre-expansion Delaware (or what would be known post-expansion as ‘Delaware proper’ or the ‘Three Counties’) was geographically more Southern, but its history and population density tied it very much to the northern province of Pennsylvania and to Philadelphian trade. Within a very short amount of time, Delaware would find itself even more tied to the north and the south as many of its inhabitants found themselves producing even more stuff for Philadelphian consumption due to the Lord Wilmington successfully pulling in all his Delaware contacts to fuel his philanthropy, and then it had a sudden expansion to include nine southern provinces and was included in the southern Dominion of Anglia. This view that the small Delaware was grasping the north and south tightly within its interests led it to be described as alike a brooch, a small shining jewel that nevertheless fastens together two diverging interests. This would lead to its popular nickname of the ‘Brooch Province’ by the 1790s.

In the aftermath of the expansion, the General Assembly came together to oversee a reorganisation of the province in the wake of its changing from the three lower counties on the Delaware to composing most of a peninsula. There needed to be a system set in place to integrate the new counties. The most glaring issue was the one easiest solved, with the two Kent counties being renamed ‘West Kent’ and ‘East Kent’ respectively by an almost unanimous vote despite some (Delaware) Kent representatives objecting. The hundreds set up in Maryland often crossed over into Delaware proper due to the unclear boundary, so the General Assembly set the line at their claim and firmly delineated the borders of Sussex with the formerly Maryland counties, ensuring that the hundreds of the latter would have to shrink to acknowledge the new border.

The most heated debate however, was Caroline County, the newest and only inland one and widely seen by the General Assembly as just a way to give a colonial governor a county named after his wife. The de facto capital of it was even mocked for its name of Pig Point. The General Assembly was on the verge of abolishing it and ceding the land back to its former counties when the Lord Wilmington arrived from Philadelphia. By then, he had a deeply speckled reputation in Delaware itself, but his voice still held great sway. He sided against the idea of reversing Caroline’s creation, talking at length on how even the smallest of places could still bring greatness, waxed on for half an hour about the glory of Rutland to the confusion of most of the attendees, and then finally implored them that Caroline was if anything, despite its inland status, the ‘Delaware of Delaware’, the small and deeply looked upon county. ‘Give poor Caroline a chance, let her shine!’. Moved by this unusually emotive statement about something they considered non-controversial, the General Assembly decided to drop the matter and permit the province’s only landlocked county to survive.

Wilmington’s real motivation would come out soon after as news of Chastleton appointing the husband of the county’s namesake as Viceroy of Anglia would arrive to the General Assembly. He knew that the Baronet was a man who might hold a few grudges against a province that took his Maryland’s eastern shore, so he moved to prevent another grudge from emerging by ensuring that the county that held the Vicereine’s name was not abolished. Wilmington was no fool, he knew all chances of his future influence came from maximising influence and sway on the Viceroy and he was already standing on weaker ground than that ‘cavalier’ over in Virginia due to Delaware’s land expansion.

Nevertheless, he managed to prevent Caroline County from being abolished, and in the process gave it its inexplicable nickname – ‘The Delaware of Delaware’. Meanwhile, there were questions about the process of election to the General Assembly in those areas, or even Delaware as a whole. At this time, the General Assembly was functioning on the constitution of William Penn, even if they crossed out Pennsylvania for Delaware. There were a few questions asked about the definition of ‘freemen’ and if Delaware should resist the restriction made on the Dominion franchise that reduced it to just Anglican freemen rather than the more ‘cosmopolitan’ colony Delaware developed to be.

Some reformers cited the Delaware Act, made before the Dominions were created, as precedent for Delaware continuing the ‘Pennsylvanian franchise’ even under a more restrictive Dominion. The legal uncertainty of the matter led to a slim vote in favour of such continuation at least for the first elections to the General Assembly in this new and much bigger Delaware. ‘If the Parliament or the Viceroy deems otherwise, let there be a notification and we will correct, but in the absence of any notification, we will continue as we have always been’ was the statement of the speaker of the General Assembly upon the vote being held.


The boundaries at this time were defined by hundreds so a hasty committee allocated seats to the Maryland and Virginia hundreds on their estimation of their populace, which turned out to be somewhat incorrect. However, it would not be corrected until after the first election returned the new dominion-era legislature of Delaware…

I was going to try for a write-up, but couldn't find the inspiration. But yeah, Gaulish Sardinia somehow. And no, this doesn't mean there's no Gaulish language floating around in France. There is, but it's a quite dying language only spoken by some people in the French countryside.

Anyway, to sum stuff up (no official header for this since this is an informal sum), the definition of 'Celtic' nations here are...

The Too Latin Lot, But They Have Money
Britain [including its British-speaking and 'Celtic'-identifying offspring]
Dumnonia
Armorica
Venedotia
Cumbria
France? [sometimes they invoke the Gauls, even though the Gauls are still around...]

The Actually Celtic-Speaking Lot
Kent [Cantic is around, but most Kentish people speak English]
Scotland [only partially]
Caledonia [only the ruling elite]
Sodor and the Isles [Does speak Celtic, but it is quite Norse-influenced]
Ireland [split in several countries, namely Leinster, Ulster, Connacht and Munster. Irish is spoken by like 60%. Includes Newfoundland and Nova Scotia]
Sardinia [Sardinian is the majority language]
Asturias [Asturian is around, even if declining those days in favour of 'Asturian Spanish']
Galicia [Gallecian is alive and co-official with Galician [a Portuguese language] and Suebi, but is the weakest one]
Gaul [much, much, much reduced but still around, and often irked when French nationalists claim their ancestors]

Fun fact!: The King of Denmark is married to a Tasmanian and because of this after the declaration of a republic, the right-wing Country Party wishes to put the Danish monarch on a restored throne. The 'Danish Option' is far more popular than the German, but republic still holds a strong majority.

Well, that escalated quickly.
Certainly. However, if you look into some of those Unionist people I chose beforehand, especially such *delightful* people as Albert Johnson and Henry Herbert Stevens, you can see that there was quite a few... ethnic tensions before it went all kablooey.

Think of Oregon as like Yugoslavia. Even when it's united, it's always one bad day from ethnic conflict.

Rather surprised that he's not an Unionist here.
Self-Government was where everyone who vaguely wanted power went, really. Unionists only became more relevant as SG thumped out factions.
Was he a particularly hawkish Premier, and what were racial/ethnic relations like during his tenure?
He particularly was. And Patriotic Reform was an integralist party, wishing to combine centre-left welfarism with a form of cultural integralism, trying to make all the cultures into one, reduce it to just religious differences. The Gresseth-Sinclair years were prosperous years, but also complicated years.

The "Lizocracy" of fourteen-term President Elizabeth Windsor seems to be reaching its twilight as there's now publicly talk of the dominant [and heavily personalist] "Windsor Front" of the centre-left 'soggy' Social Democrats, centrist Greens and centre-right 'wet' Liberal Democrats nominating someone else in 2022 with her blessing [that is, if she ever decides to go, which is unlikely]. The undisputed frontrunner for such an election is her own son Charles [a member of the Green Party], with her other son and preferred successor Andrew destroyed by a recent scandal that even caused President Windsor's approval ratings to dip markedly. Still, the dominance of the Windsorian ideology seems to be undamaged.

There are murmurs of some satirists that the family should be just put back on the throne what with them already holding all power, but everyone laughs at that. Elizabeth Windsor, bastion of the Republic and proof of the revolution succeeding beyond belief, being a crowned head? Nonsense.
