Article III of the Charter is amended as follows:

(Section B)

1. In Section B, subsection 11 is amended to read:

11. The Kaiser confers honours, dignity of nobility, awards, decorations or distinctions on such persons as he deems worthy of it, after receiving the advice of the Imperial Advisory Council on the matter.”

2. In Section B, subsection 13 is amended to read:

The Kaiser governs in his discretion such fiefs that he may hold personally within the Imperial Dominions, the Imperial Court, the Imperial Household and all Imperial Residencies. He may not be removed from any of these or have their finances disturbed without his consent.

(Section D)

3. Section D is added, to read:

1. The Landsraad may remove the Kaiser from the throne if it has adopted a resolution to remove the Kaiser with three fourths’ majority and either no more than one imperial state has informed the Prætor of its objections to the resolution within one year of the Landsraad’s adoption of the resolution or all imperial states have informed the Prætor of their consent to the resolution.
2. The Landsraad may, by resolution, order a regency for the Kaiser whenever if the Landsraad believes that the Kaiser is so ill or absent that it endangers the government of the Imperial Republic. The resolution is valid for one year or until the Landsraad has ordered to cease the regency by a resolution, whichever is sooner.
3. The Kaiser may, by issuing an imperial decree to the effect, order a period of regency, which shall be valid until such time that the Kaiser issues another imperial decree announcing that the period of regency has ended. Such decree may also appoint, from among the members of the Imperial Advisory Council, a Regent.
