The An Tir Handbook, 3rd Edition, May XXXIII/1998
The Crown (the King and Queen acting together) is the source of Kingdom Law.
The Crown appoints, removes, and replaces Great Officers of State in
conjunction with the appropriate Corporate Officers, if any. The Crown
appoints, removes and replaces Lesser Officers of the Kingdom in
conjunction with the appropriate Great Officers, if any. The Crown may
suspend any officer of the kingdom for just and stated cause for the
duration of the reign. The Crown appoints, removes and replaces territorial
Barons and Baronesses in accordance with Corpora, Kingdom Law and custom.
In An Tir it is customary for the Crown to delegate the appointment,
removal, and replacement of principality officers to the Coronet. The Crown
approves all officers on all levels in conjunction with the appropriate
superior within the Kingdom and signs their warrants, usually by means of a
roster warrant. The King and the Queen serve on the Regalia Committee and
on the Council of the Exchequer. They attend, if they choose, all Curia,
peerage and Noble Estate meetings. The Crown sets the format for the Crown
lists and determines who is acceptable to fight in the Crown lists. The
King and Queen approve new branches and changes in status for branches.
They select the locations of Crown Events. The Crown is the final step
in the grievance procedure within the Kingdom of An Tir.
The Crown serves as a ceremonial focus and presence for the Kingdom. The
Crown recognizes the good that Their subjects have done by exercising Their
power to grant awards.
