Officers of the Royal Household serve the King directly, are not members of the Government, and are expected to administer their offices in a non-political fashion.
Should vacancies occur in any of these offices, the King appoints a replacement on the advice of the Seneschal, the sole exception being the Chancellor of the Royal Talossan Bar, who is recommended to the King by the Senäts.
The various officers of the Royal Household were determined and described in law by an act of the 35th Cosa (35RZ24).
The Chancery is the office of the Secretar d’Estat (Secretary of State). Secretary of State Marti Furxheir administers the Chancery. By law, the Secretary may appoint a single Deputy and any number of subordinate officers (members of the “Office of the Secretary of State” and known as Undersecretaries of State), who are authorized to act in the name of the Secretary and to perform official business delegated to them. (The Deputy Secretary of State alone has the ability to assume powers and delegatory responsibilities of the Secretary when the Secretary is unavailable.)
