To Be Added As An Amendment To The Land Claims Act

Process for Claiming an Independent Holding

Any member of the Empire of rank Count or above may seek to establish an independent holding, of which they are the highest legal authority, in any lands currently recognized as unclaimed.

This is accomplished through the submission of a formal proposal for the creation of an independent holding to the Imperial Court; the proposal must include:

a) A map of the area including defined borders claimed in context with current regional and/or imperial maps, and

b) Statement of intent and purpose for the lands claimed.

Once a proposal has been submitted to the Imperial Court, it must be subject to and pass a vote of confidence from the Imperial Parliament. To be recognized as an independant holding, the proposal must receive a vote in confidence from either a clear majority of the Council of the Crowned (60%) or a clear majority of the Council of the Crowned (50% + 1) concurrent with a majority of the House of Dukes (50% + 1)

Once a proposal for the creation of an independent holding has been recognized, that realm shall immediately be recognized under Imperial law and entitled to all rights, freedoms, and duties this entails.

Rules Governing Vassalage Relationships After Independence

Where the creation of an independant holding results in a vassal or vassals ceasing to be under a liege, the former vassal(s) is entitled to the following rights:

a) The individual(s) retain their former rank as recognized by the Empire.

b) The individual(s) retain custody of all materials, items, and other goods in their possession at the time of the creation of the independant holding. The individual(s) do not retain custody of or jurisdiction over any physical buildings, property, lands, or peoples inside the lands of their former liege, which shall return to the primary custody of the liege unless otherwise agreed upon.
