Emperor Father named Pater Patriae on 60th birthday

In celebration of his sixtieth birthday, HIH Emperor Father Terry has been granted the unprecedented title of Pater Patriae by His Imperial Majesty the Emperor.

Jonathan I announced the bestowing of the title with the publication of an Imperial Edict this morning.

Pater Patriae, which literally translates to “Father of the Fatherland”, was a title originally conferred by the Roman Senate to individuals considered successors of Romulus. In recent centuries, the title has been used more widely to refer to the founding fathers of a country.

For Emperor Father Terry, the title will be translated “Father of the Nation.”

The unique honour was presented as a birthday present from the Emperor and People of Austenasia as a whole.

As such, supporting the Emperor’s decision to grant the title were the Prime Minister, the Consuls, and a vote of the House of Representatives.

The Imperial Edict conferred the title “in grateful recognition of his role as Father of the Nation as de facto co-Founder, first Emperor of Austenasia, and Head of the Ancient and Imperial House of Austen in addition to his other contributions towards the country.”

The Emperor’s 21st birthday party took place yesterday in the Imperial Residence.

A party was held in the Imperial Residence yesterday evening to celebrate the 21st birthday of Emperor Jonathan I.

The Imperial Family were joined by relatives and family friends for the party, including Deputy Prime Minister Countess Eritoshi and her sister Lady Imogen, one of the current two consuls.

The Emperor received several birthday cards and presents from the guests at the party.

The actual birthday of the Emperor was on 13 October, which was observed with the opening of presents and a meal out with the other members of the immediate Imperial Family. The party was held yesterday instead of on Tuesday so that more people would be available to attend.

 

Meeting in Putney

His Imperial Majesty the Emperor, Countess Eritoshi, and Lady Evren Filgert met in Putney this afternoon for lunch, later joined by the Reylan Emperor Taeglan I, although by this point the Countess had had to leave.

Emperor Jonathan I and Prime Minister Countess Eritoshi met Evren Filgert of Porthbokon at a Putney tube station before walking to a nearby restaurant for lunch in celebration of the Emperor’s birthday, which took place yesterday.

After eating, the Countess had to depart, and the Emperor and Lady Evren explored the town before meeting Taeglan I Nihilus, Reylan Emperor.

This was the first time that the two western Emperors have met since the coronation of Jonathan I. Along with Lady Evren, they went to a coffee shop to buy drinks, and the three spent time talking about various matters.

All four individuals who met today study in Greater London, and the idea of future similar informal meetings met with approval.
