Explanation of the individual titles listed in the grand title in their order[edit | edit source]

Emperor of Karnia[edit | edit source]

Karnia was founded on 02 February 2016 and after some weeks, the project didn't achieved the expectd result. Following the succession of Oscar I, in order to preserve the imperial status and establish a bond with the Holy Roman Empire claimed by the Karnian Government, the title of "Hereditary Emperor of Karnia" was created. In return, the project would be expanded and be at par with the Kingdom of Ruthenia. The result of this negotiation was the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016 and the foundation of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire.

Occidian Emperor[edit | edit source]

The Occidian Empire is a constitutional monarchy largely based on the culture of the United States and German Empire and is located in America. It was created as a reformation of the North American Confederation in a personal union with Karnia-Ruthenia, as a result of the Act of Abdication and Viceroyalty[1] and subsequent fourth constitution its history, named Oscarine Constitution. A province of the Grand Republic of Delvera from 28 July 2018 until 15 December 2021, when both became constituent states of Karnia-Ruthenia ruled by Oscar I.

King of Ruthenia[edit | edit source]

The Kingdom of Ruthenia was established in 2014, and was during the reign of the second ruler, Oscar I, that was established a personal union between Karnia and Ruthenia, bonding the titles of Emperor of Karnia and King of Ruthenia.

King of Bessabia[edit | edit source]

With the creation of Bessabia, this title was held by the King of Ruthenia. Although abolished in 2016, the title was kept as a mediatized title.

King of Acrin[edit | edit source]

After the events of the Autumn Revolution where the King of Ruthenia took active part as the Aristocratic Chieftain of the Clans of Acrin, the House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha deposed the former king, and Oscar I assumed the title that, eventually, became a mediatized title after the disestablishment of Acrin as a constituent state of Karnia-Ruthenia.

King of Horvatia[edit | edit source]

Horvatia was created in 2016, and confirmed the subordination of Horvatia to Ruthenia in 2016 with signing of Horvatian-Ruthenian union, an annex of the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016. From August 2017, the House of Agram instilled nationalist sentiments in the local population to force its own rise to power. Through long negotiation, the Agrams would ascend to the Throne of Horvatia. In the early morning of 03 September, Oscar I abdicated the throne in favor of Prince Joseph Cicero of Agram, father of Ban of Horvatia and head of the ducal house. Horvatia continued a country within the Empire, but the post of Ban of Horvatia was descontinued. With strong popular pressure, King Joseph Cicero abdicated in favor of his son, Duke Weslley of Agram, 25 days after taking the throne. Unable to sustain his reign, King Weslley abdicated on 03 October, having reigned for only 05 days. The throne returned to the Emperor-King of Karnia-Ruthenia until 31 December 2020, whent the Treaty of Saint Sylvester was signed.

King of Jestia[edit | edit source]

King of Tsechia[edit | edit source]

Within the Empire, the forces of opposition to the Dual Monarchy lost their disposition, leading to the creation of the Tsechian Federation, a micronation composed mostly of Ethnic Czechs who refused Oscar I as their king, despite joining the Empire. The number of citizens grew little, but guaranteed a place for another culture within the Empire, making more heterogeneous the ethnic composition of Karnia-Ruthenia. However, agreements reached between Karnians and the Emperor-King made it possible for a small portion of the territory to be under direct domination of the Empire - the Duchy of Taschen - only as a "moderating protection" if necessary. Oscar was made Duke of Taschen and Heir to the Throne of Tsechia on 13 February 2017 with the intervention of Archduke Anton on his behalf. After the Antonian Revolution, Tsechia became a unified kingdom and Oscar I became its King.

King of Eslavija[edit | edit source]

On 01 August 2018, at a time when he enjoyed international prestige and a more stable phase of his reign in Karnia-Ruthenia, his first micronational project was restored as Kingdom of Eslavija and the Crown was offered to him. The affirmative answer came exactly nine years after the founding of the proto-state which originated in Eslavija and that was his first action in micronationalism. However, conditions were imposed on both sides. On the part of the Eslavijan government, the imposition is that the kingdom never would be absorbed by the Empire. On the part of the restored king, is that his reign would be provisional, with the intention of organizing the state, preserve its history and appoint a worthy successor for the future. Both sides accepted these conditions[2]. He abdicated on 29 February 2020, being succeded by Alexander II, a noble of Karno-Ruthenian origin.

King of Cardonia[edit | edit source]

On 30 January 2019, due the Treaty of Libenstein, Oscar I ceded Hakodate to become territory of Cardonia, that in turn was annexed by the Empire. For compensation for this "loss of territory", was ceded to him the former royal titles of "Grand Duke of Leuvenberg and of Strena", and the newly-created title of "Protector of Cardonia"[3]. The terms of the treaty also puts the Imperial House of Karnia-Ruthenia in the line of succession to the Throne of Cardonia, since the Emperor-King, with his Cardonian titles, holds a higher position in Cardonia then any other noble, just after the king. In 15 December 2022, through the Treaty of New Rome, Oscar I abdicated as King of Cardonia and the title was dropped.
