Know that We, Mibaradardam be Khorshid va Mah Minamaz dadanam Zurvan, have in the first place dedicated to Zurvan this Decree which by his Kharenah is confirmed for Us and our heirs forever.

In the Event of Our Death

Section 1. Effect

  1. Should We die during Our reign, the subsequent subsections of this section and the subsequent sections of the present Imperial Decree shall govern the matters relating to Our death.
  2. Should We die outside the Imperial Republic, a notice of Our death shall be sent to the Imperial Government, which shall furnish the Landsraad with the notice, a report on the circumstances of the same, and a recommendation to the Landsraad to either accept or reject the notice of Our death. The Landsraad, having examined the Imperial furnishing, discussed it, shall vote on whether to accept or reject the notice. In the event of acceptance of the notice, We shall, for purposes of Imperial Succession, be dead from that moment on. Should the Landsraad reject the notice, We remain legally alive, whatever the actual circumstances of Our vivacity.
  3. Should We die within the Imperial Republic, normal procedures to confirm the death of a Kaiser apply for the purposes of Imperial succession.

Section 2. No effect of Last Will and Testament.
Our Last Will and Testament of 23 Fasmas 1637, as amended twice on the Apollonian sectorial date of 6230, and later by clause 3 of Imperial Decree 850, shall, in the event of Our death during Our reign, have no legal effect whatsoever. It shall be considered void and replaced by the subsequent sections of the present Imperial Decree. The provisions on inheritance contained in the Contract of Our Matrimony with His Majesty the King of the Elwynn remains intact.

The stone shall be an obelisk of Zy-Rodunian marble, and carry Our full name in the Babkhi language, followed by the years of Our birth and death, and any other inscriptions that the Imperial Government may see fit to add.

Section 6. Succession to Imperial Titles
The succession to all Our Shirerithian titles derived by Imperial grant is governed by the Emirati Decree, entitled Act on Succession, of 19 Oskalteq 1638.

Section 7. Other Titles
The succession to all Our other titles is governed by the applicable law for that particular title.
