@Amada Merþedes

As moderator are you able to construct a RAK subforum of Cézembre?

Why can't we have a sovereign who actually wants to be active in their own country?

A certain kind of person only loves their country when it's doing what they want it to do and stroking their ego in precisely the correct way.


Based upon the expressions of the Crown in https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=780.msg6141#msg6141, I respectfully withdraw this proposal from the RAK

There is a new imagery viewer that will take you directly to Cézembre


The full URL is


The Cézembre Land Office will be adding features to this service from time to time with placement of granted homesteads, public works, and other points of interest.

I do indeed intend to retain my position as Lord Warden.

Outside of this noble nation I personally am, in body, rather unwell - which explains much of my absence. But be assured that my wish - my strong wish - is to be an active citizen and functionary within Talossa. And it is only my body, not my mind, that is affected by illness.

I am still here, and I shall be more visible.

Excellent that you wish to continue as Lord Warden.

I am sorry to hear that you have health issues, and sincerely hope that your situation stabilizes or improves.

Should there be no other candidate by May 14, under our CAG you would be renewed by election non-election to the position of Lord Warden.  If there is another candidate then there shall be a ballot.

There has been previous discussion https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=740.0 regarding the upcoming election of the Lord Warden.

The previous election https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=354.0 after my temporary appointment (for 1 Clark) was thought to seat you for the forseeable future, yet the Chancery insists that election needs to be conducted yet again after your seating for a single Cosa session.  It would be much more reasonable for the period of service to be adjusted based upon that previous election.

The question which has been posed in various ways is

@Ián Tamorán

Do you wish to remain Lord Warden, the representative of Cézembre to the Senäts of Talossa (which at the current time is a Kingdom)?

I believe the timetable for your declaration of such would need to take place by 14 May as per https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=738.0 to be in sync.

You appear to have been too busy to respond to discussion asked for in https://wittenberg.talossa.com/index.php?topic=737.0 nor any other post in this Cézembre forum since January 18, 2021, nor any other post in any forum since February 16, 2021

Be that as it may, you do need to respond at least within a month from today.

Since it has been determined that by statutes in the Cézembrean Adminstration Guide (CAG) A9 Lord Warden Election Act: "If there is one sole candidate for the position of Lord Warden at the start of the election, no election will be held and the sole candidate will be considered elected to the position."
And as Sénéchal, and not standing for this election (as I had previously when there was an election for Lord Warden), I would thus conduct the non-election (since Lord Warden cannot be appointed as per the Chancery regardless of intention of Cézembre and thus need to be elected in a non-election) should no other person decide to declare within that same timeframe until 14 May.

Should you choose to ignore declaration of intent somewhere in the Cézembre forum by 14 May, and should no other person declare intent to seek the position of Lord Warden somewhere in the Cézembre forum, then that position would be left vacant.

As Sénéchal, I cannot conduct an election for that same position, should it be due in the current election cycle, but I will stand for that position, should an election be required.  There may be others interested in standing for that position.  The question remains as to whether someone will accept appointment as the Conducting Officer as part of the CAG A8: The Sénéchal Elections Act to hold either a non-election election (for one standing candidate), or an actual election (for more than one standing candidate).

Thank you for the honor.  Please retain the silver cup in the archives of the Kingdom.

Lotsa words being bandied around here to avoid saying that yes, XPB wants to split Cézembre from Talossa, for a King who's not even interested in Talossa any more (so why would he be interested in schismastic Cezembre, lol). Also interesting that XPB keeps talking about a "hereditary monarchy", which was abolished last year and I don't remember him getting upset. If John's interest in Talossa is zero, Patrick's is negative.

Anyway, looks pretty plain that the majority of opinion in CZ supports compromise over schism, so that's good.

A majority of Cézembre opinon may indeed wish to support the evolution of the Kingdom of Talossa to be the Republic of Talossa, with all the trappings of that type of system.  My interest is in Cézembre remaining a Kingdom, which may be a minority opinion.  It is not a split to remain as such, on the contrary it is the split the Republic is making.

I don’t believe the Taiwan analogy is the the best example of that. Mainland china does not recognise it as a country and refuses dealings often with bodies when they also do dealings with Taiwan. I would defiantly not support any system like that at all.

At minimum it definitely is not a situation to strive for!

The people of Taiwan pursue a system of their beliefs and would be unlikely to prevail in changing the hearts and minds of China.  If there are eventually enough people in Taiwan that agree with the form of Chinese government then that may change.

A revolution, albeit incremental, is occurring in Talossa as it changes from a Kingdom to a Republic -- regardless of what window dressing is put on elected positions.  The question is whether Cezembre wishes to remain a Kingdom.

As Conservative, I will always try to keep to the status quo, where I can. Secession is a big step and not one to be taken lightly.
We know where this road leads, history will repeat itself and the trauma will be passed to the next generation of citizens. We must end this cycle.

One reason I offered the Taiwan analogy - in some places there can be one country - two systems.  Some think of Bavaria in this manner as well - im Bayern geht es alles anders.

Some believe that a 7-year president is the equivalent of a King.  I beg to differ.

"Slim" is the guy who takes out Leroy (Le Roi) Brown in the song.
I am poor at French, I translated that as "thin"

ergo - Many in Talossa want a Slim President for 7 year terms, rather than a robust hereditary King

Cézembre / Re: RAK - The Cézembre Shall Keep Its King A14
« on: April 14, 2021, 06:09:00 AM »
The Change is, what exactly?
Artical 1 will still read " ...and the Regipäts Talossan."

So whomever the king is of talossa, thus will be the king of cazambre as written.

"The King of Cézembre is King John I, until his demise, abdication, or removal from the throne. Should the King at any time renounce or lose his citizenship of Cézembre, that renunciation or loss shall be deemed to imply his abdication of the Throne. Upon the demise, abdication, or removal from the Throne of the King, l'Etats will consider a new candidate." 

Thus as King John were to be removed from the Talossan throne, We as a province must consider and vote I assume on a candidate for the throne. Thus if one were to be chosen as king of Cézembre, they would be our chosen person for the throne of Talossa.

So as far as I read, you wish to add additional steps for cezambre to chose its representative and candidate for the Talossan throne?

It would also grant additional powers to the talossan throne that they may not else where be granted
Section 6

The King may grant titles of nobility and confer awards and decorations.

Am I reading this right?

Because if the above is not correct, your talking of succession? Your also talking to somone who holds the largest number of seats in the l'Etats. And I may not be too happy about that kind of talk?

Yes, you and others have an entire majority of votes within l'Etats and could choose to reject any such proposal, or even remove me from office.  That is the nature of these types of legislative bodies, and this is a forum for discussion, thank you for participating. 

My understanding indicates that Robert I became King of Cezembre by Royal diktat, and that was an additional title accumulated by to our sovereign.  If Talossa decides to have a 7-year president, this would peserve that as a hereditary title.

In consideration of current events in the Kingdom, perhaps a Cézembrean consulate to Taiwan is appropriate to have discussions of similar situations of our peoples Restaurant
would be a good candidate for a location.
excusez-moi, que voulez-vous dire? je ne comprends pas?
