The House of Karnia-Taslavia, or House of Taslavia originated from the ascension in 2020 of Archduke Ítalo to the Throne of Taslavia. They are a cadet branch of the House of Thomaz-Rocha and the House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha through both male and female line, since their founders and current heads, Archduke Helio and Archduchess Mary are first cousins.

History[edit | edit source]

Guilherme I and Oscar I, 17 June 2021.

The current head of the house is Archduke Helio, younger brother of King Ari of Ruthenia. Although never ruled in his own right, his older son, Archduke Ítalo was made King by his nephew, Oscar I in 2020, what effectively founded the cadet Taslavian branch of the House of Götzö-Thomaz-Rocha. With this ascension, the archduke were elevated to king in December 2020, retaining the Karno-Ruthenian titles and place in succession.

In April 2021, a family pact was signed and the members of the family created the House Law of the Karno-Ruthenian Imperial Family, which is also followed by the Karnia-Taslavia branch, that finally confirmed the titles of the members of the dynasty, their duties and their place in the line of succession to the Karno-Ruthenian as much as the Taslavian Throne. Of the thirteen children of Archduke Anton and Archduchess Judith, ten renounced their position in the line of succession, with just two of them, Archduke Pedro and her sister, Archduchess Celia, with children with archducal titles, although with no right to succession.

Burials[edit | edit source]

Thomaz-Rocha Cemetery, 2020.

The burial places of the House are two: a cemetery used by the House of Thomaz-Rocha consecrated on 19th century in what is known today as the Duchy of Cieszpreg and Zallanta and a particular cemetery in Campinas, near Duchy of Oswiencin.

The most recent entombment in the particular cemetery of the Thomaz Family took place on November 2020, with the death of Archduke Anton, while his wife, Archduchess Judith, was the first person to be buried at the family's vault near Oswiencin, followed by their eldest son, Archduke Francis and the first wife of Archduke Pedro, Archduchess Celia.

Line of Succession to the Throne[edit | edit source]

Taslavia had equal primogeniture sucession, but that is limited to those descended from Archduke Helio of Karnia and in the future, King Guilherme, through marriage approved by the Karno-Ruthenian Monarch. Dynasts lose their right to the throne if they marry without the permission of the monarch or current pretender. Individuals born to unmarried dynasts or to former dynasts that married without imperial permission, and their descendants, are excluded from the line to the throne. Further, when approving a marriage, the monarch can impose conditions that must be met in order for any resulting offspring to have succession rights.

Also included in the line of succession, although excluded members who were against decisions of the head of the dynasty or promoted any attempt on the dynastic order imposed; the latter are considered "disgraced", lose their titles and their descendants are automatically excluded from the line of succession, although it remains just as a courtesy.

The Throne must pass to the member of the Royal Family next nearest in lineage with the same line of succession should a situation arise where there are no eligible descendants of the reigning Emperor-King. The monarch is allowed to be a member of any faith of their choosing, traditionally a Roman Catholic. The monarch was never forced to belong to any religion, however to prevent any potential crisis of faith within the Royal Family, all members are allowed to profess any faith they desire or none at all.
