An article on Modern Monarchies

Check out this interesting article: How Modern Monarchies are Evolving.

It’s a look at how monarchies impact the world, most particularly the countries where they exist.


Thai King Crowned

The coronation of King Maha Vajiralongkorn (King Rama X) will be taking place over the next two days, although his rule has considered to have started back in 2016.  His rule is not without issue, primarily due to the Lese Mageste laws that are in place.  It is our hope that he, and the people of Thailand, have a bright future ahead of them.

Inclusion in the Internet Archive

Portions of the original website for the IGE as well as it’s successors are in the Internet Archive and I, Emperor Norton II, have requested that the current website for the IGE is included as well.

Emperor Akihito Abdicated

Yesterday was the last day of the reign of Emperor Akihito.  It isn’t always easy to know when to step down and let someone else take over, but that time always comes.  Emperor Akihito did it with love and grace, and during his reign showed what a proper Emperor should be.  He stood with his people, went out after national crisis’s, and represented his people to the world.

Today starts a new reign, and it is our hope that the new Emperor of Japan has learned from his father what he needs to do.


I’ve been away dealing with a few issues, but I’m returning again and trying to figure out what new I can do with the IGE


His Majesty, Emperor Norton II, has issued Royal Proclamation 72 which states that Her Highness Falwynn Falconwind, the Duchess of the Emerald Mountains, shall act as Regent if  His Majesty is unable to exercise the Royal Prerogative.
