The Rulers of Elwynn is the term which is used to collectively refer to the group of individuals who have ruled Elwynn over the course of its history subsequent to the Shirerithian conquest and its creation as a Duchy all the way until its period of independence and subsequent status as an imperial state.

From 1452 AN through to the present day fifty-three rulers, both individually as well as collectively and with a wide variety of titles and powers, have held the reins of government throughout the long, complex, chaotic, unruly and often violent history of the Elwynnese Nation.

Governing Stewards

Under Elwynnese law and custom a governing Steward is a person who in accordance with law conducts the government, effectively as a regent, when the holder of the White Orchid Throne is absent, indisposed or a minor. In the recorded history of Elwynn there have been eight such periods of Stewardship.

It should be noted that the title of Lord Protector was conferred upon Scott of Alexander by Kaiser Loki III by means of Imperial Decree 323 when giving the former all the powers of the Duke of Elwynn, while the title of Conducător was a self-bestowed title for certain individuals who assumed executive power. Nonetheless in the instance of the Conducător the powers exercised where effectively those of a governing Steward.

Consorts

Under Shirithian law, which at the time fully controlled the subdivisions of Shireroth, the spouse of a Duke or a Baron was considered the consort of the reigning noble, sometimes deemed a Honorary Ruler in their own right. For the purposes of the then Lawbook of Shireroth, Dukes and Barons were referred to Ruling Nobles and spouses as Honorary Nobles. Honorary Nobles had the same powers as Ruling Nobles, except for the Landsraad vote(s) of the Ruling Noble. The legal concept of Honorary Nobles disappeared from Shirithian law when the Duchies of Shireroth became Imperial States in 1583, although the aforesaid legal concept already ceased to be relevant for Elwynn when it, somewhere after 1567, during its days of independence did away with the laws it had inherited from Shireroth upon seceding therefrom.
