The Duchal Embassy, comprised of 5 Arch Dukes and 20 Dukes for the advisory commitee to The King. While anyone may become a Duke in the case of a vacant seat, it is up to the Arch Dukes to determine who is most worthy to fill the seat.Specifics on their Government
The Arch Dukes vote on vacancies in the Duchal Board, requiring a 3/5 approval to fill said vacancies. In the event of an Arch Duke vacancy, the Highlords, King, and remaining Arch Dukes vote to fill vacancies requireing a 3/4 vote (King counting as 3 votes). The Embassy may overthrow the King with a 4/5 vote or better, and must be ratified by the Highlords with a 1/2 vote. While not law, the King, as a sign of fairness will histoically ask the Duchal Embassy for a 1/2 ratification vote for internal policies and a 2/3 vote in the case of Foreign Affairs policy changes.
