                The AULIC ENVOY (New Marian: ARANYIAZ), or officially known as the AULIC ENVOY AND LORD KASTELLANS OF THE CROWN, is the ranking member who holds the authority overseeing the Kingdom’s foreign affairs, second only to the Sovereign of Haense, and leads the realm as one of the Heads of Diplomacy and first aide to the Crown in all diplomatic manners. Historically, the Aulic Envoy is entrusted in the management of the Kingdom’s foreign affairs both abroad and domestic. The most likely candidate for designation has typically been from Haense’s most qualified diplomatic scholars based on reputation. In most cases, those born of nobility have held the seat although there have been cases where members of the gentry have also held the seat.

 

                Historically, since the establishment of the position, most envoys are attributed with extensive diplomatic backgrounds prior to their ascension to Envoyship. The reconstruction and growth of the Kingdom’s law structure took place extensively from 344 E.S. to 358 E.S. under Jericho’s tenure. There has been a trend since the second Aulic Envoy where the vast majority of Aulic Envoys have belonged to certain nobilital families, from Kortrevich, Baruch to Barbanov. As of 362 E.S., one office holder has died in office (VI) and four under political obligations to the Crown (I, II, III, IV, V).

 

                The office holder is distinguished by the quill of Envoy Sigmar Baruch, carried only by the Aulic Envoy, and traditionally holds symbolic command during meetings with foreign powers. The reign of King Robert I saw the creation of the office of the Aulic Envoy which has since been occupied by six different officeholders stretching across the reigns of seven Haeseni monarchs. Prior to such creation, the Palatine of Haense upheld the Kingdom’s foreign affairs; although at times such command was entrusted to a trusted Haeseni diplomat. Notable office holders include Ithilian Enthelor (I), Martin Kortrevich (II) and Sigmar Baruch (III).

Prior to his designation as the Kingdom’s Aulic Envoy, Sigmar Baruch was already an Aulic Councillor as the Lord Speaker of the Royal Duma; which resulted in the Envoy position being removed from the Aulic Council.

 

    Succeeding the resignation of former Envoy Stafyr, Baruch continued to ensure steady relations with the Imperial government of Oren during turbulent times sparked by the growing desire for Haeseni autonomy. Through his efforts, he provided the Kingdom with a voice of reason. (Notably; his speech at Valwyck, 1750)

 

    During his tenure as Aulic Envoy, through his responsibilities delegated to him, Sigmar Baruch was a signatory on a vast number of treaties brokered with the Kingdom from 1736 to 1753. One of his most notable achievements as Envoy would be the inception of the ‘Emissary’ position which is now formally known as the ‘Aulic Ambassador’ position.
