36RZ1 — The Royal Guardianship Act

WHEREAS there exist in Talossan law some gray areas regarding the monarchy of a minor sovereign, and

WHEREAS the Regent can act for the King in official matters, but there's no person or body under Talossan law qualified to act for him in personal decisions, and

WHEREAS in cases when a minor sovereign might be considered to be under guardianship of any person or persons who are not citizens of the Kingdom of Talossa, such guardianship is perhaps not most appropriate for the case of a powerful constitutional officer like a monarch, since a foreign citizen should not be able to make personal decisions for the King or Queen of Talossa which might affect the well-being of what is -- to such persons -- a foreign nation, now

THEREFORE the Ziu hereby enacts that:

  1. The legal guardian of a minor sovereign shall be one or both of the biological or adopted parents of the said sovereign, providing that at least one of the said parents is a citizen of the Kingdom of Talossa.
  2. If a minor sovereign is not the biological or adopted child of a Talossan citizen, the minor sovereign shall be a ward of the State. The wardship of the minor monarch shall be executed jointly by the Ziu and the Cort Pü Înalt, through a unanimous vote of the Cort and a two-thirds vote of each house of the Ziu.
