On the Crown

Definition of the Crown

The Crown of the Dual Monarchy of Hanseti and Ruska, also referred to as the Crown of Hanseti-Ruska or the Crown of Haense, is the government of the Kingdom of Haense. The Crown is led by the Monarch of Hanseti-Ruska and their chosen Lord Palatine.

 

Role of the Crown

The Crown of Hanseti-Ruska serves as a regulating body within the Royal Duma, vested with important ceremonial and formal roles in relation to the functions of the august body. The Crown of Hanseti-Ruska may summon and dissolve the Duma, a privilege exercised personally by the Monarch. The Crown furthermore regulates legislature brought to and passed from the Duma, and maintains veto powers over legislation to maintain the peace and order of the Dual Monarchy. The appointment of ministers, such as the Lord Palatine and the Lord Herzen of the Duma are also regulated by royal prerogative. Nominations to the Aulic Council are also made by the Crown.

 

On the Duma

Composition of the Duma

The Royal Duma consists of a singular house, vested with authority to manage and maintain matters of governance.

 

The Royal Duma of Hanseti-Ruska is composed of Hereditary Peers, sworn as a vassal to the King of Hanseti-Ruska, along with the Crown-appointed ministers, the Lord Palatine and the Lord Herzen of the Duma. There shall be three elected seats, composed of the Lord Maer, a Royal Alderman and a Tribune.

 

The elected representatives shall compete for the seats within the Duma prior to the elections, administered by the Lord Herzen. These elections are conducted in such a way that each individual runs independently, without the influence of other factions, such as the Josephites and the Everardines.

 

Peers of the Kingdom

The Peers of the Kingdom, usually referred to as Lords, are sworn to the King of Hanseti-Ruska within the Imperial Peerage. They are entitled to a seat in the Duma, who may pass on their seat in hereditary succession. Additionally, these Lords are vested with the ability to represent their Houses and their ideology within the Duma. It is therefore also the prerogative of the Lords to call a representative, most commonly a member of their House, if they cannot attend a Duma Session themselves.

 

The Lord Palatine

The Lord Palatine, also simply referred as the Palatine is the Crown’s foremost representative within the Duma. The Palatine is the de-facto leader of the government, being responsible for all of the Monarch’s ministers and councillors. It is therefore that the Lord Palatine is simply responsible for representing the agenda of the Crown in the chambers.

 

The Speaker of the Duma

The Lord Herzen of the Duma, also simply referred to as the Lord Speaker, is the Crown’s presiding officer within the Royal Duma. The Lord Herzen is in charge of organizing and scheduling the Duma, keeping the records of the Duma, ensuring that a vote is held on all relevant matters of the Duma. They are also charged with acting as the mediator and authority during Duma Sessions.

 

The Herzen is typically chosen from among the lords of Haense or a sitting member of the Duma and confirmed by the Crown. Unlike the rest of their peers in the assembly, the Herzen is forbidden to adopt any formal political stance and must be ideologically neutral during their tenure in office

 

The Royal Alderman

The Royal Alderman is an elected councillor to the Royal Duma of Haenseti-Ruska. The Royal Alderman is selected by election held by the Lord Herzen and the Lord Palatine. Elections for Alderman are held every fourth year, with no existing term limit. To run for Royal Alderman an individual must be sixteen years of age, be a Citizen of the Kingdom, and have been found guilty of no crimes within the Kingdom.

 

Much like how peers are vested with the duty to represent their Houses and ideologies, the Aldermen are representatives of the citizenry of Hanseti-Ruska. Aldermen are generally associated with representing the gentry class, this is because they are most commonly elected from within the nobility of Haense, though there is nothing preventing a commoner from being elected to the position.

 

The Tribune

The Tribune is an elected councillor to the Royal Duma of Haenseti-Ruska. The Tribune is selected by election held by the Lord Herzen and the Lord Palatine. Elections for Tribunes are held every fourth year, with no existing term limit. To run for a Tribunal seat, an individual must be sixteen years of age, be a Citizen of the Kingdom, and have been found guilty of no crimes within the Kingdom. They must be of common birth, with no filiation to nobility of the Empire.

 

The Maer

The Maer is an elected councillor, representing the City of Reza, and the citizenry of the Kingdom. The Maer is selected by election held by the Lord Herzen and the Lord Palatine. Elections for Maers are held every fourth year, with no existing term limit. To run for Maer, an individual must be sixteen years of age, be a Citizen of the Kingdom, and have been found guilty of no crimes within the Kingdom.

 

The Maer, among their responsibility of protecting the interests of the Reza in the Duma, is also tasked with the creation of citywide policies, ensuring that the infrastructure of the Kingdom is up to date, overseeing the city council, and the arrangement of the citywide events, such as fairs and festivals.

 

Responsibilities, Powers, and Limitations of the Duma

The Duma is given the following responsibilities, which it shall fulfill to the best of its abilities, using the powers granted to it by the Crown of Hanseti-Ruska:

 

  • To create a bi-yearly report on the state of the Kingdom.

  • To evaluate candidates nominated for the Aulic Council.

  • To serve the Crown in an advisory role, being the representatives of all those of the Kingdom.

  • To always act in the best interests of the citizens of Hanseti-Ruska.

  • To preserve and maintain the Jeremic Liberties.

  • To preserve and maintain the Rights of Man.

 

The Duma is granted the following powers, which it shall use to fulfill the responsibilities given to it by the Crown of Hanseti-Ruska:

 

  • To audit and survey the Kingdom.

  • To call upon members of the Aulic Council, and inquire into the performance of their duties.

  • To request statements and documents from Aulic Councillors.

  • To state their approval or disapproval of an Aulic Councillor.

  • To advise the Monarch directly on all matters of the realm, being the representatives of their people.

  • To regulate laws and domestic policies of the Kingdom.

  • To establish and mandate both civil and martial infrastructural works.

  • To enact proposals for naturalization and citizenship.

 

The Duma is held to the following limitations, these categories of which it has no power over, the power being held only by the Crown of Hanseti-Ruska:

 

  • The Military and the appointment of Commanders and Generals. This prerogative is held by the Crown and the Lord Marshal.

  • The Crown, the Succession of the Crown, the Authority of the Crown, and the Royal Household. This prerogative is held by the Crown only.

 

The Legislative Process of the Duma

A summary of the legislative process of the Duma is as follows:

 

  1. A bill or a writ is proposed by a member of the Duma.

  2. The Duma debates the content of the bill, either through moderated or unmoderated debate, to be decided at the discretion of the Lord Herzen.

  3. Amendments to the bill are proposed, and if necessary, made.

  4. The Lord Herzen calls for a vote.

  5. The bill either passes or fails.

  6. The bill proceeds to the Crown, which will either approve it or veto it.

  7. If the bill is vetoed by the Crown, it is declared null and void.

  8. If the bill is vetoed by the Crown conditionally, the appropriate amendments shall be made to it before it is once more passed through the Duma.

  9. If the bill is approved by the Crown, it shall become an Act of the Duma.

Brandt Barclay reads through the reforms as he educates himself, if even slightly, on such political matters. He then cheers for Ser Osvald, impressed by his cousin's hard work.
