Imperator of the Holy Luthorian Empire
Imperator of the Empire
15 August 4624
His Excellency the Imperator
1 April 4622
Every Imperator's reign is commemorated as their Imperium. For example, when a Prime Minister forms a cabinet, they usually use their last name in the official name of the cabinet like: "Urquhart Cabinet". The same goes for an Imperator, though it is then used like this: "Reichert's Imperium". An Imperium is not a cabinet but inhabits instead the entire realm during the reign of said Imperator.
The Office of the Imperator was created in 4622 when the 'ICP-02: Imperial Restoration' bill, created by Franz Reichert and submitted by the Imperial Citizens Party, passed the Imperial Diet and became official, this bill transformed the Republic of Luthori into the Holy Luthorian Empire. The Head of State at the time was President James Weston who had the legal right to assume the Office of the Imperator but refused saying:
I shall be the last President of the Republic and as a firm believer in the Empire I think that the people shall choose the first Imperator.
Imperator Brandon I Edit
In the 4622 election, the Pope and Prime Minister Brandon I became the first Imperator, but his reign was short lived as he failed to negotiate a government coalition. Because of this Brandon dissolved the Imperial Diet and called for an early election. The election resulted in him loosing the title of Imperator.
He was the only Imperator who held both positions of Head of State and Head of Government simultaneously, as well as being the Pope of the Holy Luthori Church. He died a month later of his dethronement.
Imperator Franz Reichert Edit
4623 - 4624 Edit
Though Pope Brandon I lost the Office in the election of 4623, Franz Reichert assumed the throne with over 56% of the vote. His first action was to call all the parties in the Diet to hold negotiations for a cabinet coalition, as Luthori had been without one for over a year.
Franz Reichert was the one who drafted the 'ICP-02: Imperial Restoration' bill and is therefore known by many pro-empire and monarchist supporters as the Restorator of the Empire. He was the General Secretary of the Imperial Citizens Party from 4621 to 4632.
4628 - 4632 Edit
Franz Reichert was elected Imperator once more in 4628 with over 52% of the vote. During Reichert's second term as Imperator he has put himself in a more influential role and assumed the position as the unofficial head of government through his nephew; Edward Daeva the Prime Minister. He is by far most known during the Daeva Cabinet II for his Luthori Works program which intended on creating a long term solution for the unemployment in the country. In early 4633 it was reported that 600 thousand unemployed had been given a full-time job, the program was implemented in March 4631.
Imperator Reichert is in recent times the longest serving politician with a record of 50 years. He has formed and led the parties of the National Rally for Imperial Restoration, the National Democratic Alliance and recently the Imperial Citizens Party.
Imperator Robert Redmond Edit
In 4624, Robert Redmond from the Patriots Party won the position of Imperator through an early election. Under Imperator Redmond's reign the Holy Luthorian Empire was finally able to get a stable minority government headed by former Imperator Reichert's nephew, Edward Daeva. Redmond is the only Imperator of the three first to stay out of politics and have a more symbolic role.
