"Regent" Title Clarified in East Kingdom

His Majesty, Andreas, King of the East, has announced that the term "Regent" will not be the title used for Baron Dietrich von Ulm. Saturday, at East Kingdom Twelfth Night, His Majesty of the East, Andreas, announced that He would be stepping down as King in order to serve on active duty in the United States Marine Corps. At that time, He named Baron Dietrich von Ulm to serve as "Regent" along with Queen Isabella until the end of the current reign.

Due to East Kingdom law, the term "Regent" may not be used. For that reason, His Majesty has designated Baron Dietrich an advisor to Her Majesty for the remainder of Her reign. Baron Dietrich's advisory position will have no title.
