Overview

This title was established by the Imperial Senate during the Summer Solstice 378YE. The White City Museum was completed shortly before the Spring Equinox 379YE.

Responsibilities

The Curator of the White City Museum is responsible for maintaining the museum itself, and for acquiring new exhibits. Indeed, the intention was that the Curator acquire antiquities from across the Empire, establishing the White City Museum as a site of Imperial, rather than only Highborn, pride.

In addition, if anything were to threaten the good operation of the museum, it would be the responsibility of the Curator to address those problems.

Powers

The Curator is an Imperial title in Highguard. It grants custodianship of a sinecure.

Point of Pilgrimage

The Curator receives 7 liao and 14 votes in the Imperial Synod. These votes can be used in any and all appropriate assemblies.

Selection

The Curator is appointed by judgement of the Highborn national assembly.

This is a national title and can only be held by a Highborn citizen.

Removal

As with most sinecures, this role has tenure. The assumption is that they hold the position until they die, step down or are revoked.

The Curator can be revoked by a lesser majority of either the General Assembly, the Assembly of the Nine, or the Highguard national assembly.

History

The museum was established following the destruction of the Tabernacle Museum of Antiquities by the Druj, and many of the original parts of the collection were items recovered from the ruins by heroic Imperial action.
