Between 1562 and 1612, Elwynn was ruled as a oligarchic republic by an elected Prince. After the communist revolution the Senate, which had been the mainstay of the republican government, collapsed utterly and was swept away by the Ayreon-Kalirion Restoration, also known as the Nathanielian Restoration, after 1618 which introduced a new constitution with an absolutist form of monarchical government.

After the end of the Froyalan era, Elwynn reorganized itself as the Elwynnese Republic with a new constitution.
